1987 Honda CBR600F Hurricane With 8K Original Miles

This is a nice looking, first year, CBR600F Hurricane about to end on eBay.

Bike:  1987 Honda CBR600F Hurricane

Location:  Bradley, Illinois

Mileage:  8,101mi

The seller states that this bike is a one owner example, in showroom new condition.  The bike has been modified with a K&N filter (And probably a drilled air-box cover), an F1 exhaust system, a larger rear sprocket and the passenger pegs have been modified.  The only claimed cosmetic imperfection is the small crack in the front fender.  The carb’s were gone through earlier this year and new, Pro-line, fuel lines were also installed.

The bike does look very good in the pictures.  I don’t doubt that it is fantastically clean in person but there may be some small issues the seller may have missed but, I’m pretty sure they know the bike quite well after 23 years.

Sadly, the only issue this bike may have is the price:  I don’t see this bike going for $3,500 and the seller has a reserve in place.  Heading into fall, I’d probably assume this bike would go in the $2.5k-2.8k range.  There are collectors for these early CBR’s but, they seem to not be willing to pay a premium because they know no one else will.

This was the first production 600cc bike to crack the quarter mile in under 12 seconds with a time of 11.7 @ 113mph.  These early CBR’s are quite fun if you realize they are 23yo technology.  Parts are prevalent and nothing is really difficult other than the valve service–just like any inline four within a confined frame.  The only major drawback is the rim widths.  While the rims are 17″ front & rear, they are quite narrow and were originally fitted with bias-ply’s leaving the current tire choices limited–but, still better than for an FZR.

Although I wouldn’t spring for this bike at this price, I believe these aren’t a bad choice if you’re looking for a budget collectible.  While the F2 & F3 bikes may have had more aftermarket parts during their time, the Hurricane will always be the first generation of the, ongoing, iconic CBR.  See this bike on eBay .

  • Actually, since it has screw type adjusters, the valve lash adjustments are relatively easier than a lot of bikes and require no parts….they just don’t last as long as shims would. I had a brand new 89 and I still miss it and traded up to a ’97 F-3. Lovely red-white-blue model with Kerker White tip….just lovely!

  • Man , I got an 87′ previosly owned at the end of 87 with only a few thousand miles on it . It was my first real sportbike . I had steel lines with Ferodo pads and DOT 5 fluid in it . I used to be able to lock up the front wheel braking from 70 mph !! I put a Kerker slip-on on it and transformed myself into Freddie Spencer (ummm …minus his richess and awesome …soon to be liquidated bike collection …thanks to wench ex-wife’s gambling habit that rose to 900K of debt…for him having to liquidate his well earned trohies !!) So cudos for keeping a great 23 year old Sportbike clean and with quite low mileage for its age !! 🙂

  • i started riding on a black and red 87 ‘cane. great little bike, i regret selling her just about every day
