Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1989 Honda Hawk. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
Honda was ahead of its time when it debuted the Hawk GT, also known as the NT650. 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 of this example (VIN: JH2RC3104LM200723) acquired it six months ago from a custom builder.
During that time he’s covered approximately 500 miles. The odometer now shows 14,726 miles.
Honda VFR (Fourth Generation) rear wheel and D&D carbon fiber exhaust.
Stage 1 jet kit and pod air filters.
Progressive fork springs and carbon fiber front fender.
Recent maintenance includes a carb rebuild, fresh tune-up, oil/filter change, brake fluid flush, and new battery/air filter/spark plugs. It also has custom paint.
Currently located in Chantilly, Virginia, this Hawk is offered on a clean Virginia title.
The seller notes that the only cosmetic flaw is a paint bubble in the tank. There are no known mechanical issues.
