Spotless 1990 Honda Hawk 650GT For Sale

Update 7.18.2013: The seller has informed us that both of his bikes sold in 48 hours after being listed on our site. Congratulations to buyers and seller! If you have a bike that is as special as these that needs selling, check out our Feature Listing option.

The second bike from Miles is his very sharp 1990 Honda Hawk GT RC31. If you missed it, check out his Honda CB-1 that is in equally stunning condition.

1990 Honda Hawk 650GT RC31 For Sale

from the seller:

1990 Honda Hawk GT, second owner, also mint condition, 6,900 miles. Liquid-cooled, 647cc v-twin with Honda’s first aluminum spar frame and French Elf-designed single-sided swingarm. This Italian red example has no dings, scratches, corrosion on engine or forks, and is as pristine as they come. Asking $4,300/offers, in North Florida.

To quote RSBFS Alumni Doug, "These have a cult following just like any other United States motorcycle sales disaster and it’s as strong as ever." So true! These bikes were largely overlooked, again, because the Honda lineup had other attractive options for just a few hundred dollars more. Which is a shame because upon closer inspection these are really special bikes. A nice thumping v-twin motor coupled with the exotic-for-it's-time single sided swing arm that was an obvious first attempt to capture a market that the Ducati Monster would dominate a few years later.

Personally the Hawk has many great memories for me. My high school buddy Christian from SpeedyMoto gave me my first taste of sportbike riding when I was in high school. I rode his Hawk in straight line on a country rode up to about 70mph, then stopped and did a 15 point turnaround, and came back to him with a huge smile on my face. Definitely one of the first impressions of what would eventually become an addiction, lifestyle, and living for me.

At just $4300 obo this bike represents real value in a package that can be appreciated in the hands of newer and experienced riders with quite a bit of style as well.

  • As nice as this example is, $4300 asking price is not market correct. This is a $3000 Hawk.

  • Friend had one of these for a long time it was very reliable traded it last summer locally to a guy who was told old for his 1989 kawie KR1 250 smoker. Things kind of came full circle cause I spotted a used not in the best of shape CB-1 6 months ago for $800.

  • things are worth what the next guy is willing to pay you for it. can’t argue with the market. however, i have bought a bike from him after seeing it here. and his bikes can/should go above market price

  • Hi..Is this bike still available?
