The Japanese version model was named the [[Honda Bros]]. The RC model designation is for [[motorcycle|bikes]] up to 750cc, though the Pacific Coast ([[Honda PC800|PC800]]) has an engine of more than 750 cc and a model designation of RC34.

The bike's main distinction is in its [[motorcycle frame|frame]] and [[motorcycle swingarmSwingarm|swingarm]]. The dual spar aluminum frame and single sided swingarm (licensed from ELF) were pretty high tech in 1988. The mildly tuned [[motorcycle motor|motor]] is descended from the [[Honda VT500|VT500]] and has been seen, in one guise or another, in several other models.
The bike was ahead of its time in many regards and as a result was not a strong seller despite the bike having grown to cult status. The Hawk GT was one of the first modern Naked bikes, released several years before the [[Ducati ]] Monster and eventually the [[Suzuki SV650]]. Some sources claim that [[Triumph ]] found much of the inspiration for the t509 Speed Triple/t595 Daytona from the Hawk GT and if one compares the two bikes side by side, the Triumph mimics many of the Hawks lines and shapes.
During the initial production run, the cost difference between the Hawk GT and the [[Honda CBR600F|CBR600 ]] was less than 1000 dollars, resulting in very slow sales for the naked bike. However, by the mid-90's, left over models were being snatched up and current owners are passionate about their Hawks. Clean examples can fetch upwards of $3500 to $5000, more than the bike sold for new.

The NT650, Hawk GT 647, RC31 was introduced in 1988 and produced through 1991. In 1988 the bike was sold in the colors Tempest Gray Metallic and Candy Flair Blue. For the remainder of the bikes production run it was only sold in red. There are only very minor changes between the 1988 model year and the 1989-91 model years. California Models were designated NT650L.
In 1989, the front suspension damper rods were changed to have only 2 (rather than 4) holes. The front brake calipers [[caliper]]s were also changed to have screw-on covers over the mounting pins.
In 1991, the oil lines were run internally through the engine, rather than externally.

A cousin to the Hawk GT, the Revere was available in Europe. The steel frame, [[shaft-drive]], larger [[motorcycle gas tank|gas tank]], longer rear end, and 600cc motor differentiate it from the Hawk GT. The NTV650 replaced the Revere and added the Hawk motor, moving it up to a 650. The NTV650 was replaced for 1997 with the Deauville, basically an NTV650 with full [[motorcycle bodywork|bodywork]] and hard [[saddlebags]] - not too different in general appearance from the PC800.

Popular modifications include:
[[Honda VFR750|VFR 750 ]] rear wheel,
CBR 600 front wheel and twin disc brakes,
[[Honda CBR900RR|CBR 900 FireBlade ]] rear shock absorber,
CBR 600 forks,
Aftermarket exhausts,
Aftermarket fairings.
Although the Bros was never officially imported into [[Ireland]], a large number of [[grey imports]] coupled with its reasonable price, good reliability and economy mean that it is a very popular bike, particularly with [[couriers]].
