I bought this bike as being my first 600cc. Just enough power for be being a female and for the age still rides smooth and shifts with no problem and really fast.

The Honda CBR 600f is my first bike and I was told it wasn't a great bike for beginners, boy were they ever wrong it has all the power a beginner needs plus some and is great for corners and overall handling. I am21 now and I got the bike at the start of the 2001 season. I am now ready for a newer bike but I will never sell this one I put way too much time into the bike I got now that I would never get my $ back. If anyone out there has the side windows for the bike I am looking to buy. I have mine but the screws on one of my windows are gone. To anyone interested in getting a new bike go Honda all the way they are very reliable and sharp looking bikes. Good Riding Everyone.

Well this is my first sportbike ever, which I'm fairly pleased with! When I look at all the rest of the bikes back in the 'hurricanes' time, it was the one that had the most aerodynamic looks. Power is decent on this bike, but if you ever compare it to something newer you'll obviously feel a difference, which is normal anyway. I've had a difficult time finding specs on this bike and general information. What I've read from the Honda Web site and a few others is that the 600 Hurricane was the first 600cc sport bike to cover the 1/4 mile under 11 seconds. As I read that article, the way it was written made it seem it was implying about the actual 1987 CBR 600 Hurricane? I believe the exact quote was "The Hurricane engine redlined at 12,000rpm and cranked out 85 horsepower at 11,000 rpm, enough power to make the Hurricane the first 600cc sportbike to cover a quarter mile in under 11 seconds." If anyone has any information about the 87 Hurricane, please email me especially regarding that brief paragraph about the bike. I would like to know exactly why it was written in a way of referring to the 1987 600cc Hurricane, thanks.

I bought an 89 CBR in spring of 2000. I had never ridden before and I absolutely loved it. This is the quintessential starter bike- still had lots of power (more than enough for a beginner), looked sharp (chicks loved it), was very low maintenance, and most of all, dirt-cheap ($3300 CDN). I was surprised at how well it handled sharp corners and how comfortable it was to ride. A couple of drawbacks were its lack of stability on the highway (made me nervous a few times) and somewhat weak braking power. But hey, it is 12 years old, and you don't see many Yam's/Kawa's/Suzuki's from that era still on the road that are real head turners. Kudos to Honda on this one, however, I am considering maybe a 96 YZF 600 for next spring. Bottom line- pound for pound best starter bike on the road.

My '87 Hurricane replaced an '86 Yamaha FJ1200 I'd gotten tired of wrestling with. Sure I gave up some torque, but I rediscovered the joy of riding a light responsive machine. From now on it's nothing but lightweights for me. An off camber 50MPH corner near my house that had me sweating bullets and hanging off the inside of the FJ is now taken with a slight shoulder drop. I've ridden the '99 VFR800 back to back with my Hurricane and preferred my ride! Handling was flawless on the VFR, but the extra weight reminded me of the pushing and leaning I did on the FJ (not nearly as bad though). The Hurricane engine is smooth and has a tight whirring sound. Reliability has been great. The temperature gauge reads close to red after idling on a hot day but I hear that's normal. Tires run about $70 a pop. I occasionally ride with some fast bikes and keep up nicely, rarely spinning above 8000 in tight riding. They pull me a little out of the corners, but I just stay on the gas a second or so longer. I'll live with that and the $6000 or so dollars saved buying a used bike.<br /> My only complaint would be true of any sport bike - there's gondola discomfort somewhere into a long ride. This thing might be perfect for the ladies!

The 87 Honda Hurricane 600 was a remarkable motorcycle that set the standards for all around performance, reliability, comfort, and even fit and finish for it's day. Now, 13yrs later it is still a competent and fun do it all sport bike/tourer. Reliability: 5 stars. After 50,000 hard miles, many of them on racetrack and many of them 2 up, this motorcycle still surprises me with its overall tight feel and crisp appearance. Complete list of mechanical problems so far: 1. fuel pump needed to be repaired. 2. Ignition fuse blew. 3. Headlight burned out twice. 4. Cam chain due to be replaced but bike still runs great. Watch for cam pitting on high mileage examples. My wife's is just showing signs of wear at 50,000. Ergonomics: 4 star. This bike could be considered a sport tourer. I've put in multiple 400 mile days 2-up with only slight discomfort. The seat can get a little sharp edged after about 200 miles, otherwise I'd rate it 5-stars for comfort. Power: 3-star. In it's day it would have been 5-star. The power is still good. It will still indicate 147mph on the speedo just like it did brand new. Handling: 3.5 star. All around good handling. The bike feels light but steers slightly heavy. The front-end feel is a little vague when pushed very hard. Metzler comp K's are easily the best tire for this bike. It will need an after market shock ad stiffer fork springs for serious sport riding. The brakes are ok, and the stock pads are best for initial bite. When shopping for a used Hurricane 87-90, shop on stock condition and appearance as those year models are very similar except that the 90 was supposed to have 10 additional hp. If you find one of these in good shape for the right price, buy it. The Hurricane still turns heads and after a day in the saddle you will be surprised how good of an all around sport bike the Hurricane is.

All things considered, I believe the Honda CBR F1 is a well-equipped entry-level street bike. The main selling point for me was the full-faced instrument panel, smooth accelerating engine and clean lines of the well-matched body fairings. Keep in mind that this bike is 11 years old. It's not as quick in the mid-gears (2-4) or agile in the corners as newer models. Do your research and test ride as much as possible! All things considered you can get a great deal for this bike at a cost of no more than $2000. Incidentally, I paid $1900 for a bike that had 10,000 miles, rare factory color scheme and not a scratch on it!
