The 2002 VTR1000F Firestorm is a nifty move Honda made to adapt the brutal RC51 to the street. With power and torque now delivered in a more friendly, predictable manner, this bike makes a more usable city machine. It can even double as a muscular commuter, with the ageless attitude of the classic v-twin.

Track-derived suspensions and brakes bring racing-grade performance to the everyday rides, while the half-fairing and windscreen provide good weather protection for longer hauls.

2005 Honda VTR1000F Super Hawk

The 2004 edition of the VTR1000F Super Hawk carries on the proven and revered Honda heritage. The lump at the heart of this bike is the 996cc v-twin engine providing tons of usable power and torque for both city rides and longer hauls. Great as an everyday commuter bike and equally suitable for weekends at the track, the VTR1000F Super Hawk can also be a nifty sport-touring bike, provided you add some soft luggage system and a tank bag.

The passenger cowl can be easily removed for two-up riding, and with the adjustable suspensions, stability is definitely not a problem. The new Titanium color is complemented by matching accents and parts for a visually-inviting styling.
