The Honda CBR600F series which started out with the 'Hurricane', are sportbikes made from 1987-2005. They feature a 600cc inline four engine. In 1989 the 'Hurricane' moniker was dropped and they began being known as F1, F2, F3, F4. Later versions of the F4 included fuel injection and are known as F4i. They were replaced by the CBR600RR as Honda's premier 600 class sportbike.

1987

1987 Honda CBR600F Hurricane
Honda Hurricane F1


The CBR600F'87 Hurricane 600 was sold in 1987 in one of two color schemes: Pearl Crystal White with Fighting Red or Black with Monza Red. The "HURRICANE" logo on the white bike was white while it was black on the black bike. The wheels were red. The exhaust system was 4-into-1. The engine was a 598cc DOHC 16-valve liquid-cooled inline four linked to a 6-speed transmission. The serial number began JH2PC190*HM000001.

Honda's first-generation CBR600F established new standards for the middleweight class. The Hurricane's unique full-coverage bodywork allowed engineers to skip costly engine cosmetics and focus development dollars inside the engine cases. The result was a class-leading 83 horsepower from the CBR's liquid-cooled dohc inline-four. With a dry weight of 396.8 pounds--the lightest 600 available--the Hurricane blew away the competition, yet remained true to its design philosophy by offering versatility to match its incredible performance.

1988

The CBR600F'88 Hurricane 600 was sold in 1988 in one of two color schemes: Fighting Red with Pearl Crystal White or Medium Gray Metallic with Granite Blue Metallic. The "HURRICANE" logo on both colors was red. The wheels were also red. The exhaust system was 4-into-1. The serial number began JH2PC190*JM100001

The CBR600F'89 was sold in 1989, but no longer with the Hurricane name. It was now called the CBR. It came in one of two color schemes: Pearl Crystal White with Winter Lake Blue Metallic or Pearl Crystal White with Terra Blue and Fighting Red. The "CBR" logo was on the gas tank. The serial number began JH2PC190*KM200001

1990

1990 Honda CBR600


The CBR600F'90 was sold in 1990 in one of two color schemes: Pearl Crystal White with Blitz Gray Metallic or Black with Monza Red. The engine was improved to give 10 hp increase over the previous year. The white and gray unit had a wing and the word "HONDA" on the gas tank; but on the black and red unit the tank had a silver "CBR" logo. The serial number began JH2PC230*LM000004

For the 600's first makeover, Honda focused its attention on the engine. Revised porting and a new stainless steel exhaust system allowed the engine to breathe more easily, while altered cam timing, reconfigured pistons and combustion chambers, a slightly higher compression ratio and new ignition and carb settings helped make best use of the air/fuel mix. These carefully orchestrated engine changes yielded 10 more horsepower, making the CBR600F that much harder to catch on the street and on the track.

1991

1991 Honda CBR600


The CBR600F2'91 Super Sport was sold in 1991 in two color schemes: Ross White with Fighting Red or Black with Real Blue, Light Blue, and Pink. The bike had "60" series radial tires. The bike rated 100 hp (up from 7 hp from 1990). The engine and chassis had a new design. The engine was a 599cc DOHC 16 valve liquid-cooled inline four cylinder linked to a 6-speed transmission. The serial number began JH2PC250*MM000008

Honda redesigned the CBR from the contact patches up to create the class-leading F2. A lighter and more compact inline-four engine pumped out an astonishing 100 horsepower, thanks to more oversquare dimensions, bigger carbs, higher compression and significant reductions in internal friction. A stiffer frame, shorter wheelbase, revalved suspension, stronger brakes and RC30-style wheels gave the bike handling manners to match. Once again the CBR600 was the lightest, quickest and most powerful middleweight the world had seen.

The CBR600F2'92 Super Sport was sold in 1992 in one of two color schemes: Black with Palette Purple or Fighting Red. The color and graphics were redesigned. The serial number began JH2PC250*NM100001

1995

1995 Honda CBR600


Honda introduced a new model, the F3 in 1995. The CBR600F3'95 Super Sport was sold in 1995 in one of two color schemes: Black with Uranus violet and Chartreuse Yellow or Ross White with Uranus Violet and Chartreuse Yellow. The bike had a dual-stage air induction system and a plastic headlight. The serial number began JH2PC250*SM400009

Increasing sophistication marked the fourth variation of Honda's middleweight champ. The F3 got stronger via a Dual-Stage Ram Air system, more compact combustion chambers with a higher compression ratio, a computer-controlled 3D-mapped ignition and a comprehensive program to reduce internal engine friction. Again, a retuned chassis, including freshly recalibrated suspension systems and bigger brakes, helped the F3 keep its handling edge, while still maintaining class-leading livability on the street.

The engine was modified again to increase the power output to 105 hp. The bike used a lighter weight drive chain. The serial number began JH2PC250*VM600001

Totally redesigned for 1999, the CBR600F4 continued to push the boundaries of 600 performance even higher. Lighter, more compact and significantly more powerful, the F4's all-new inline-four engine used the latest Honda design and manufacturing technologies, including RC45™-inspired aluminum composite cylinder sleeves and LUB™-Coat pistons, and a new dual-stage ram-air system to crank out an incredible 110 horsepower. That new engine bolted to an aluminum Pro Frame™--a first for the CBR600--that was more rigid than the previous steel frame, yet 15.4 pounds lighter, for a feathery overall weight of just 372.6 pounds. New suspension systems, including fully adjustable Honda Multi-Action Suspension™ (HMAS) components, race-spec brakes, wide three-spoke wheels and low-profile radial tires round out the F4's exceptional handling package. The one thing that hadn't changed, though, was the CBR's all-around capabilities, making it as comfortable on the street as it is competent on the race track.
