For sure-a, the Hawk was a great little scoot, and Danny Coe’s favored tool for carving up Latigo Canyon when I first came to work in the magazine biz a few years ago. Who could deny the exotic single-sided swingarm, Cobas-style beam frame and decades-ahead exhaust system? Today the Hawk’s following, though, seems to be way out of proportion to the little 647cc Twin’s performance, which was roughly equivalent to a current Guzzi V7 Sport. That didn’t stop Kevin Erion of what was then Two Brothers Racing from winning a championship or two on a really potent version, and it doesn’t stop plenty of people from loving and racing their Hawks to this day.
