A Sip a Cylinder – 1988 CBR250R

1988 Honda CBR250R

In the modern era of sport bikes, it’s easy to visualize how much displacement is needed to propel you into the ditch of one of the two mildly curvy sections of blacktop in your sprawling suburb. Just think of all the times you got a 36oz Big Gulp. Our Harley brethren have the pleasure of visualizing the displacement of their engines right before they ride into a ditch via 60 oz of Miller Lite from the local watering hole. To visualize what the CBR250R needs, just think of when you’re cleaning up after a get together and you find that 2/3 full beer that someone told themselves they’d revisit at a later point. Divide that by 4 and now we’re talking a sip a cylinder.

In America, the reason we don’t like the 1/3 beer drinker is the same reason we didn’t like the CBR250R. You can’t get in trouble with them. Small displacement bikes are considered “beginner” bikes and have never scratched the itch for the US markets. Consequently, these bikes only end up in the states after collectors import them. Such is the case for this low-mile example today.

The most intriguing things about a CBR250R are the looks and redline. Similar weight, suspension, and power are all easy to find today. The double headlights and classic Honda racing colors have aged so well. The seller hasn’t posted many pictures but the cosmetic condition is pretty good from what can be seen outside of some marks on the rims.

The engine is other spectacle here. The picture of the cockpit teases the  18k redline which places the engine characteristics of this bike solidly in line with the engines found in premier class racing. High revs, gear-driven cams, light pistons, and an oversquare setup delivers minimal torque but 45 hp up top.

The seller seems to be a man of few words and pictures so there should be some more legwork done. However, we can assume he has good taste considering the MT-01 in the background.

Here’s an example that sold on BAT during COVID for $6,500 and can be used as a reference point if you choose to make an offer. Good luck and finish your beer.

1988 Honda Hurricane 1000 For Sale with only 5,172 miles!

1988 Honda Hurricane 1000 For Sale on eBay!

Rock you like a Hurricane, “I’m on to you” by Hurricane, Cat 5 Hurricane or Honda Hurricane? Since you’re on this page, I’m guessing you’re more of the Honda Hurricane type person.

In 1988 the Honda Hurricane wasn’t overly sophisticated in any form except the fully encompassing fairing. Underneath it was a fairly slim double overhead cam, 4 valve per cylinder, water cooled power plant that could propel the big Hurricane to 155 mph. There were rumors of some folks pushing it to 160 mph, but I still raise my eyebrow to those numbers.

The fairings were a direct lift from Ducati’s Paso line and Honda caught some flack for it back in the day, but Honda being Honda, they rolled with it, brushed it off and looked the other way.

Honda used steel frames on the Hurricanes, which would give some insight as to why it tipped the scales at a biscuit over 550 pounds. Besides the fairing being able to slice through the wind at 155 mph it also made the Hurricane look cutting edge and fast while sitting still.

This particular machine looks to be in near perfect shape as it still holds a showroom shine (it also holds some pretty good company in the garage!). Having only covered 5,172 miles in the last 33 years this has to be one of the lowest mileage Hurricane examples in existence!(?)

From the original owner and seller
1988 Honda CBR 1000. I am the original owner. Very low mileage. Just serviced, rebuilt carbs, new fuel pump and fuel on/off valve. Always garaged. I have the original exhaust as well as a like new spare tank. The spare tank has a small mark on it and Honda replaced it in 1988. Bike runs great, better then new. Bike has a Vance & Hines exhaust as well as a dyna jet kit. This bike has been very well cared for and serviced it’s entire life. You will not find a nicer 1988 CBR 1000 Honda Hurricane.

This is one of the few times I’m going to agree with the sellers statement. This is a beautiful example and very deserving of being put on display.
At the time of writing the bid was up to $2,550 with the reserve firmly in place. I suspect this will need to be north of $5,000 to remove the reserve, but I’ve been wrong many times before and in today’s market who knows!

If you’re missing an 88′ Honda Hurricane in your collection- look no further!

Make the jump here and let us know if it really is that shiny in person.

Good luck!

Cheers,

1991 Honda CBR 1000 Hurricane For Sale!

1991 Honda CBR 1000 Hurricane For Sale on Ebay

In 1991, I was rolling around listening to my Garth CD and thinking about scratching my itch for a new scooter. As previously mentioned, I was a Ninja guy. Yes, I’ll admit it had something to do with Kelly McGillis, the fighter pilot movie and that little “no bullshit” sticker on the tank of a Ninja.

Seriously, I wouldn’t bullshit y’all. 🙂

As I browsed the local dealers, the CBR 1000 Hurricane caught my eye. It had more power, fatter tires and more passenger seat than my Ninja 750. . . you know, just in case Kelly rang me up. To tease me out of my Ninja, Honda had some great marketing for their Hurricane line-up. I queued it up for you just in case you forgot about it or never saw it back in the day.

Even the Ninja is afraid of a Hurricane

Stepping off my memory lane and getting back to business at hand- This CBR is legit! A true time capsule and a very tidy one at that. One of my motorcycle pet peeves is a scuffed up top triple clamp. If a motorcycle has a beat up top triple I won’t buy it. It’s one of those tale tale signs of how well the owner or previous owners took care of their machine. If you have to have a key chain use a leather one or one of those cool “Remove Before Flight” tags, but for the love of God, please do not let your maintenance man key ring destroy your triple clamp! (See below example of how to properly maintain your motorcycle for the most resale value)

Seeing that makes me smile and my OCD very happy.

I’ve scoured these photos, zoomed in, zoomed out and zoomed back in. This Hurricane is super clean and has been well maintained. If you couldn’t tell- I LIKE IT A LOT!

From the seller:

1991 HONDA CBR1000F HURRICANE
Showroom condition, near museum quality level of clean
1000cc DOHC in-line 4, all stock, Factory Hondaline cover included, garage kept,
very clean 2-owner classic Superbike, Complete Tool Kit, 2 Keys

In 91′ the 1000cc Hurricanes were over weight, under powered and under exposed. They were near the end and getting ready to make room for our beloved CBR 900rr’s. But, looking at this one brings back all the feel goods of 1991 and window shopping for the latest greatest and fastest new kid on the block. However, as my luck would have it, I lost my job and wasn’t able to scratch my itch for a new scooter . . . that is, until 1993 😉

Look this one over and look it over well. I doubt you’ll be able to find a cleaner 30 year old motorcycle for $5,700. These are still very capable motorcycles and perfect for sporting around the back roads or for a weekend getaway. I also think they’ve aged very well. They may not be as pointy or have all of the aluminum bits exposed, but damn this thing looks good!

Make the jump here to park this one in your garage.

Featured Listing – 1989 Honda CBR600 Hurricane

Update 7.26.21: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

From the classics section of milestone motorcycles comes the wonderful Honda 600 Hurricane. Officially known as the CBR600F when introduced in 1987, the Hurricane was Honda’s wash and wear tuxedo for the ultra-competitive middleweight class; this was a bike that could do everything well. With a raspy liquid cooled inline four that was completely enclosed by bodywork, the Hurricane made a statement that set it apart from the rest of the crowd. During this time, full bodywork was an actual thing, with Bimota (DB1) and Ducati (Paso) leading the trend. Honda’s entry was vastly different than the other Japanese Big Four offerings and resulted in a runaway showroom success that spawned many variants. Up through 1990 these became known as the first series bikes (CBR-F1, if you will), and what followed were the F2, F3 and F4 models.

Featured Listing – 1989 Honda CBR600 Hurricane

As the magazine adverts at the time stated, even the Ninja fears the Hurricane. And that was not too far from the truth. The CBR pumped out 85 ponies at the crank – plenty of motive force to push what was described as the lightest and quickest middleweight of the time to the top of the timing sheets. With air-adjustable anti-dive forks and a rising rate rear linkage with preload settings, the Honda could handle with the best of them. Our seller Jim is an obvious fan of the model. He has provided a ton of detail on this bike, and I will let him pick up the story here:

From the seller:
Lordy, I hate selling my motorcycles. This 1989 Honda CBR 600 “Hurricane” caught my eye the minute I saw it on Ebay a few years back. All I’ve done in my ownership is to ride it, enjoy it, and maintain it (like my other bikes). I’m a collector but everything must be ridden! I’ve put a thousand miles on it (odo is now 26,517) and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. As far as I’m concerned the custom red/white/blue seat puts it over the top. It’s been stored properly and tendered during the entire time I’ve owned it. The bikes starts and runs smoothly and everything works! It’s also been freshly serviced.

When the “jelly mould” styling came out in 1987 everyone was a fan of the styling but I just simply loved that full enclosure bodywork back then. That full enclosure bodywork hides a steel frame, an inline four cylinder engine of 598cc with twin cam, 16 valves and 85Bhp. Did I mention it runs great? In 1989 this bike was the quickest and most powerful middleweight ever built, but it was it’s the complete user-friendly nature of the bike that make the bike what it is—-super, all day comfortable yet still la great handler.

More from the seller:
CBR stands for “City Bike Racing” and Honda’s idea was to create a bike that could take you to work and back five days a week and then win races on at the weekend. I get it—-30+ years later it still performs its mission well.

For the 1989 model year the hugely successful CBR600 got upgraded with minor tweeks. It looked the same jelly mould bike but underneath it got higher compression (11.3:1, up from 11:1), the cam timing was revised, bigger carbs fitted, new ignition and a beefed up clutch. It also got adjustable rebound damping. Power was increased from 85Bhp to 93Bhp and, apparently was a noticeable difference.

Performance
0-60mph 3.5 secs
0-100mph 7.7 secs
Top Speed 137mph
Fuel consumption 45mpg

More from the seller:
The CBR600F1 had a nice set of clocks that I still think look great today with their red details and markers. These clocks always looked great at night with their orange/red glow. There is just something about a set of needles, gently illuminated from below as you ride into the twilight. OK, maybe that’s a bit too poetic but you get the picture. This is a great vintage bike in very good condition.

Nit-pick items? One of the mirrors is a little faded so it’s a slight creamy white. It looks like one of the red decals is peeling up just a hair on the tank. The bike is not perfect but it’s in damn good condition and is surrounded by admirers wherever I ride. You won’t be disappointed. Be prepared to ride all day!

Price: $3,600 $3,300 USD

While never particularly rare in the day (this was a very popular model for Honda dealers), we do not often see these wonderful machines in such fantastic condition. Quite simply, most have been abused, dropped, stunted, raced, crashed and resold for scrap. This bike looks great, comes from a RSBFS enthusiast who has taken care of the beast, and is now offering up this example of a legendary model for a mere $3,600 $3,300. With typical Honda engineering and build quality, this is a bike that will last a lifetime of use when properly maintained. You are not likely to find anything that will turn heads – or put a bigger smile on your face – for that small of an outlay. It even has period correct F1 slip ons!

Low Tech, Big Fun: 1997 Honda CBR600 F3 for Sale

When the original “jellymould” CBR600F Hurricane was introduced in 1987 the enclosed, sleekly aerodynamic fairing hid a dark secret: a steel frame. While racier competitors had switched to lightweight aluminum construction, the simple, effective CBR600 F3 stuck with the less expensive material until the CBR600 F4 was introduced in 1999. Although the styling was hyper-modern, it also helped Honda save money on manufacturing and development costs. Instead of a finished frame and engine cases, or carefully routed wiring and hoses, the whole functional mess could all just be hidden behind relatively cheap, sleek plastic. So while pragmatism may have driven the design and the ingredients were, on their own, not very exotic, the complete package was a world-beater when it was introduced.

Produced between 1995 and 1998, the F3 was an evolution of the earlier CBR600 F2. Compared to that bike, it offered adjustable cartridge forks, a Pro-Link rear, and and ram-air to feed the engine. The result was a few more ponies from the 599cc inline four and a 454lb wet weight. That might sound heavy for a 600, but it was just a couple pounds heavier than a ZX-6R or GSX-R600 of the same period, and actually a good bit lighter than the aluminum-framed YZF600. At a claimed 105hp, peak power wasn’t best-in-class either, but the CBR offered a smooth spread of power with no real dips or flat spots, the perfect balance in a road engine and pretty handy on track as well.

The CBR600 was always pitched as a more versatile mount than competitors from Suzuki and Kawasaki, a bike that was at home in the canyons, in the city, and could even do a bit of commuting or light touring. The CBR600 was never really about the numbers, it was about the complete package, a sort of Goldilocks solution to the Supersport problem. It didn’t make the most in-class horsepower. It wasn’t the lightest. It didn’t have much in the way of headline-stealing innovation. It didn’t even have any acronyms plastered across the fairings!

It also made a perfectly good foundation for a racebike, winning multiple AMA SuperSport Championships, and didn’t seem to suffer at all for its relatively ordinary underpinnings. Eventually, the entire class became more and more track focused, and led to the development of the CBR600RR that was sold alongside the CBR600 F4i as a direct alternative to the high-strung offerings from Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Yamaha. But for a while, Honda’s versatile CBR meant you really could have your cake and eat it too.

This particular machine needs a bit of maintenance before it time-warps you back to your youth, but the miles are shockingly low for such a practical machine, and it looks to be in exceptional cosmetic condition. It may never be as desirable as a CBR900, but I these are certainly functional classics and much more attainable, since prices for the bigger machine are currently spiraling upwards and nice examples are hard to find.

From the original eBay listing: 1997 Honda CBR600 F3 for Sale

Hello, up for sale is my 1997 Honda CBR600F3 with 2,916 orig miles.  Clean title in hand in my name. Bought it 4 years ago and spent lots of time and money trying to make it near perfect (it’s the same model, year and color as what I had in college so it was me trying to relive my youth). Sadly, my bad back in combination with it being too dangerous for a slow, fat guy like myself to ride in Vegas forces the sale.  I have all receipts and replaced parts baggies/boxes for every OEM part I put on it. I saved the old parts to prove it wasn’t wrecked. Feel free to contact me to see it in person 850-five 86-38two8.  Not showroom perfect but damn nice for a 1997! PS: front chock included!

The bad: carbs need to be cleaned. Ran fine in 2014 and I did drain bowls before tear down but no luck in getting it started. Needs battery too as no point in buying one and letting it rot.

The good: over $1,000 in brand new parts. No cracked fairings at all!

  • Brand new oil and filter
  • Brand New Dunlop Q3s with not 1 mile on them – $285 mounted
  • New Ariete 90degree valve stems in gold – $29
  • Powder coated rims in gold – $175

The following all new OEM parts

  • Front lower chin – $35
  • Left side lower fairing – $374
  • Alternator cover and gasket – $69
  • Parts below over $400
  • Various OEM decals still new in OEM packing for spares – $149

The CBR600 may have been anything but exotic, but that was exactly the point: it was an everyman sportbike, and it was damn good at being that. The shape has aged pretty well I think, and the non-standard gold-painted wheels really flatter the Erion Racing-inspired colors. It’s a shame that this attempt to capture the seller’s youth has been put up for sale, but his loss is your gain! Can you really put a price on reliving the dreams of your youth? Apparently you can, and those dreams are going to cost you $3,950.00. That Buy It Now price is obviously on the high-end for an F3, but if this one is as nice in person as it looks in pictures, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a better example with so few miles.

Eye of the Storm: 1987 Honda CBR600 F Hurricane

Winter is upon us with its stormy moods. A perfect time to sit inside by the fire and reflect. What better time to take a look at a pretty cherry CBR600F model Hurricane and revel in its ability to survive. Sure, I know what you’re thinking: there is no way that a UJM that was mass produced in the tens of thousands will ever be rare. And I can see the point. The whole crux of the laws of supply and demand move us to a place where demand outstrips the supply – this is difficult to do with a commodity product. But this was a commodity more than 30 years ago. Today to find a well preserved CB600F model is not all that easy. It may not be Supermono or Tesi scarce, but certainly no easier than finding a clean Ducati “R” model, Superlight or the odd Bimota SB/YB series example. Today’s Hurricane has traveled fewer than 500 miles per year of its life, and is looking spiffy for it’s existence of relative relaxation. Let’s dig deeper.

1987 Honda CBR600 F Hurricane for sale on eBay

The bikes we covet today are direct descendants of the 1980s, that watershed era when manufacturers experimented like hippies in the 1960s. Trying any number of cylinders in a variety formats, different types of induction, liquid cooling, four valves per cylinder, mass centralization, full fairings and air flow management, tire and wheel sizes, brakes and exhaust, the Big Four went crazy with bringing new ideas to market. Honda in particular exhibited A.D.D. during this period, offering air cooled, V-4 and inline four models with varying performance characteristics. But it was the Hurricane that open the door to the fully-faired repli-racer look that continues to this day in the 600RR line. That is a pretty amazing run for a very capable machine.

From the seller:
1987 Honda CBR-600 F Hurricane – Only 15K Miles – Also CBR 600 F – CBR600F
Mechanically this bike is a 9.9 Out Of 10 And Cosmetically It’s a 9.8 out of 10
Excellent condition for a 32 year old ICON in the Motor Cycle World.

It’d be nice for it go to a collector who understands what it is and appreciates it’s excellent condition. I just rode it yesterday for 15 miles out in the country and the bike pulls clean and runs – idles perfectly. Please note in the pictures & the video that some of the angles the sun makes the red color look faded out. It is all bright RED as it was when new.

Before this ignites a storm of another kind, we have seen this seller before. The consensus is that the bikes represent themselves better mechanically than cosmetically – but that doesn’t mean everything offered is in the same condition. This bike looks very clean and in far superior shape to most any of the vintage Hurricanes we have seen. 15k on the clocks is higher than many would consider, but aside from some minor cosmetic damage if the bike is as stated mechanically what you have here is an excellent rider. Check out the pictures and video. And as alwasy, RSBFS recommends that you do your homework. Look closely, research the model, and ask the seller questions if any data or detail is unclear. This holds true regardless if you are buying a RC30 or a YSR50.

If you’ve weathered the storm thus far, you have seen a clean example of a 1987 CBR600F. And while this is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, this No Reserve auction has shown some decent action. There is no gold-plated Buy It Now option here. $100 bought you the first bid in this game, and the price has quickly climbed over $2k. How high will it go? There are lots of watchers on this one, but from the looks of things the price is still firmly in the bargain basement territory. I don’t see really see this above the $5-6k mark, but there may be someone out there that just has to have a vintage Hurricane. Jump in if you’re nostalgic for the bike you couldn’t afford in high school, but don’t expect to be making a brilliant investment. There will always be a market for a clean, older bike – even one that isn’t in high demand – but the value appreciation will be slow at best. But who really cares? The value is in what you see, and who doesn’t see something cool in a well-preserved sport bike artifact? Check it out carefully, and bid with gusto – after all, Christmas is just around the corner! And be sure and jump back to the Comments and share your memories of the Hurricane – because I know you have them. Good Luck!

Update 3.17.2018: The seller has notified us that the transaction is now complete for this Hurricane and in fact sold quickly after being posted for just 4 hours. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

If Suzuki’s GSX-R codified the sportbike formula for the masses, the Honda CBR600F Hurricane represented the next evolution. Introduced in 1987, and known in the UK as the “Jelly Mould” due to the smooth, aerodynamic bodywork, the bike featured a steel frame that persisted up until the introduction of the CBR600RR, but that was somehow never much of a handicap. Sure, it meant that later iterations of the bike were at a technical disadvantage when compared to aluminum-framed rivals, but the CBR always had that user-friendly quality for which Hondas are justifiably famous. And at around 440lbs full of fluids, the original Hurricane was still a good bit lighter than its contemporaries and it handled beautifully, rivaling the Yamaha FZ600 but with a far more refined engine.

Mechanically, the Hurricane signaled a shift for Honda away from the V4 engine configuration. It still made sense for more focused racing machinery but, for a mass-produced motorcycle like the CBR, an inline four was easier to package and less complicated to manufacture. That inline engine displaced 598.5cc and was much more oversquare than generally seen at the time, with a bore and stroke of 63mm x 48mm, something that was allowed by the bike’s liquid cooling. It produced 85hp with the help of a 4-into-1 exhaust and could push the slippery machine to over 140mph, with triple disc brakes that could pull the bike down quickly and safely from those speeds.

The impressive top speed was made possible by the bike’s sleek styling: after Ducati pointed the way towards the future with their fully-enclosed Paso, Honda took the ball and ran with it, taking advantage of the aerodynamic and manufacturing advantages, since the bike’s mechanical parts could also be conveniently hidden out of sight without concern for tucking wires and hoses out of the way or a need to “beautify” the mechanical parts. And, while Ducatisti resisted the Paso’s modernity, Honda fans embraced the future and the new Hurricane sold in droves.

Today’s Featured Listing is a low-mileage survivor with just 12,000 miles on the odometer and an asking price of $3,750. It appears to be in very nice, original, unmolested condition, excepting a Yoshimura exhaust the seller claims has been on the bike since new, so it may not be OEM, but is at the very least period-correct.

From the Seller’s original Craigslist post: 1988 Honda CBR600F Hurricane for Sale

Up for sale is my 1988 Honda Hurricane! She runs and rides fantastic.

If you are looking at this ad, you know how rare these are to find in this condition and this color scheme with low mileage.

It has an original Yoshimura complete exhaust system that was installed when new. She is ready to go with a new battery, fork seals, new OEM chain, fresh oil change, re-built master cylinder and re-built carbs. She is mostly original except I did replace the brake lines with braided ones when the brakes were rebuilt. She has a couple minor blemishes in the decals and tank but it has never been dropped or laid down.

The title is clean and in hand. I do not need any help selling the bike and ask that only serious buyers reach out to me. I am not in a hurry to sell her so no low ball offers and no joy rides. I am happy to send additional pictures and or video upon request.

Thank you for looking!

Certainly, Honda sold plenty of their seemingly simple, but still revolutionary Hurricane when they were new. But, like so many older Japanese motorcycles, they were used and abused, raced and thrashed and ridden hard, then put away wet. At some point, as values decreased and they were sold on down the line, they needed some sort of maintenance the owner couldn’t afford or justify, and they were left to rot. But a few are still around and have been restored or cherished by their original owners, and they may still be affordable, but that can’t possibly last.

In terms of what collectors look for, this one ticks most of the boxes: one owner, never modified, and low miles. The question mark for me on this one is the styling, which to my eyes hasn’t aged terribly well compared to the next generation CBR1000 to follow it. Nonetheless for the right Honda enthusiast collector, this one should find a new home without too much trouble.
