Honda was ahead of its time when it debuted the Hawk GT, also known as the NT650. It was one of the world’s first modern naked bikes but it was a commercial failure. Over the years, many riders have realized what the Hawk offered, and it’s become a cult classic. Honda advertised the Hawk as “a thoughtful blend of European styling, American V-Twin muscle, and a Honda trademark – technological sophistication.” That makes sense nowadays in a world full of SV650s and Ducati Monsters, but when this bike was released American riders wanted power and they wanted fairings – a 600 Hurricane had 30 more horsepower and all the plastic bodywork one could want for just $400 more than the Hawk’s $3,598 MSRP. For more on the Hawk, check out this article on Canyon Chasers where they call it one of their favorite motorcycles of all time.

The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues and that it “runs great.” In the last two months, the seller flushed the brake fluid, adjusted the valves, and installed new OEM valve cover gaskets. A new battery was installed on 12/30/21. He notes that the Michelin Pilot Power tires were installed in May 2019 and have less than 600 miles on them. In May of 2020 the carbs were rebuilt, the forks were rebuilt with OEM seals/bushings/Progressive springs, and the chain slider was replaced.
