More Information on the Honda CBR1000F

The Honda CBR1000F, also known as the Hurricane, is a sport touring motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1987 to 1999. It is powered by a liquid-cooled, DOHC, 998 cc (60.9 cu in), 16-valve inline-four engine that produced 84.3 kW (113.1 hp)(rear wheel) @ 9,250 rpm, and is capable of 248 km/h (154 mph). It had a 0 to 1/4 mi (0.00 to 0.40 km) acceleration of 11.19 seconds at 121.24 mph (195.12 km/h).The CBR1000F along with the CBR750F and CBR600F was Honda's first inline four-cylinder, fully faired sport bike.


Manufactured from 1987 to 1996 in the USA to late 1999 in the rest of the world, the Hurricane went through only three major revisions. In 1989, the bike received a cosmetic makeover with a complete redesign of the front fairing, improvements to the bike's front suspension, larger tyres were added to help cope with the bike's heavy weight and to accommodate radial tyres, improvements were also added to the bike's cam chain tensioner in an attempt to remove the annoying cam chain rattle some riders had reported. The 1989 model also had its power slightly increased, and it gained weight.

In 1992, the bike's looks were overhauled with a more streamlined and modern looking bodywork added. The biggest change was the introduction of DCBS, Honda's Dual combined braking system. The DCBS system was introduced to assist rider braking where the front brake lever operates the front calipers but also proportionally applies the rear brake, while using the rear brake will engage one front caliper. Since then DCBS has evolved into a very popular addition to many Honda touring motorcycles. No major changes were made after 1992. A touring model was briefly launched that offered a larger screen and hard panniers.

The CBR was weighed by Cycle World at 259 kg (572 lb) tank empty and 276 kg (609 lb) wet for California model. Honda claims a dry weight of 249 kg (549 lb), and 273 kg (602 lb) wet. The seat is 780 mm (31 in) high and the wheelbase is 1,505 mm (59.3 in). The engine is housed in a steel box section perimeter frame, air-assisted 41 mm telescopic front forks and an adjustable monoshock at the rear. The front brakes are twin 296 mm discs using three piston Nissin calipers on later models (two piston calipers 1987-88), the rear is a single 256 mm disc, and DCBS are used on all models after 1992.


The CBR's engine went largely unchanged throughout its history. It uses the standard Honda inline four-cylinder 998 cc, four-stroke, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled power plant. Running 4x 38 mm CV carburetors and a bore and stroke of 77 mm × 53.6 mm (3.03 in × 2.11 in). It produced 135 bhp (101 kW) at 8,600 rpm and 69.4 ft·lb (94.1 N·m)(rear wheel) of torque at 6,500 rpm.

The fuel tank is 22 litres (4.8 imp gal; 5.8 US gal).


The 'Hurricane' name was officially dropped from the line in 1989; however, the bike was never given a replacement name so it was often still referred to by its original title.

From 1992, Honda introduced the Supersport series with the Tadao Baba developed Fireblade, which took sales from CBR1000F.

The model was hence discontinued in the USA from 1996 as the CBR1100XX was released, but continued to sell in Asia and Europe until Honda finally ended its run in late 1999.
