1990 Honda CBR 1000F (I still say Hurricane!)

Location: Boynton Beach, Florida
Mileage: 30,512
Price: $2,750 BIN

Up for auction here is a Honda CBR 1000F, or as I still like to call it, a Hurricane 1000. I’m sure you all remember the Hurricane (my first bike was a 600). It was a great comeback to the Ninja but by 1990 Honda had unfortunately dropped the name, I think due to image concerns. It’s too bad. I still remember the ad campaign with the tag line “Even a Ninja is afraid of a Hurricane.” Pure gold by my standards. But I digress.

Many may not consider the CBR 1000F “rare” or “sportbike” enough to be on RSBFS, but I am here to argue different. While not as aggressive as say the FZR 1000 listed here a few days ago, the Hurricane 1000 was a powerful, balanced, capable machine back in the day. A 135 bhp, 16 valve, in-line four with full fairing bodywork and a relatively comfortable riding position made this bike capable of sport riding or touring. Liter bikes weren’t a big part of the Honda lineup back then but this one represented the company well.

Here’s what the seller has to say-

1990 Honda CBR1000F Sport Tourer

All the power and handling of a liter bike with the comfort of a sport Tourer

Absolutley Mint Condidtion- Looks and runs Flawless – Clear Title
4 to 1 Kerker – silencer repacked with Jet Kit installed
Zero Gravity Sport Touring Windscreen
Fully Serviced within last 300 miles
– New Continental Motion Tires
– NGK Spark Plugs
– Air Cleaner – Filter
– Mobil 1 Synthetic 4T and Fram Filter
– Brake Pads all three sets

– New Battery on Tender
– Brake & Clutch Master Cylinder Fluid Flush – DOT 4

Will Consider Partial Trades – Bikes, Guns, Tools, Etc

Unfortunately, not a lot of  photos-

Although it has relatively high miles, this bike looks clean for its age. And if cared for it should continue to run well for many more miles. The only modifications I notice are the additions of the Kerker pipe and jetting and a Zero Gravity windscreen, both noted by the seller.

Although this may not be the most exotic sportbike, I think you could be getting a lot of bike for your money. I will also always have soft spot for anything Hurricane that came from Honda. My 600 was a great bike that, even though powerful, was well-mannered enough to help a new rider find his way.

To check out this Hurricane, make the jump!
