1988 Honda CBR1000F Hurricane


Reserve Bike With Non-Refundable Deposit



Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1988 Honda CBR1000 Hurricane. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The Honda Hurricane, in addition to having one of the better names in motorcycling history, was an excellent motorcycle that introduced some crucial technology into the Honda lineup. It was available in 600cc and 1000cc versions.

The Hurricane had 130 horsepower to motivate 602 pounds of weight, and over time it’s evolved from a heavyweight supersport into a classic sport-tourer. As Rider magazine put it in a Retrospective, “the ergonomics as a whole were fit for a normal human being. Add a pair of throwover saddlebags and a tankbag, and a thousand-mile weekend was a pleasure.”

Suspension duties were handled by Showa, with 41mm front forks and a preload/rebound adjustable shock.

This example is VIN: 1HFSC2107JA103248.

The odometer shows 13,411 miles.

The seller reports that he had the front and side fairings professionally repainted and that he has replaced the battery and cleaned the carbs.
