The original Hurricane blew our socks off in 1987, but when F became F2 in 1991, Honda’s plastic-covered middleweight morphed into one of the best all-rounders of all time – a near-perfectly balanced sportbike that won all the shootouts as well as the ’91 AMA 600 Supersport title under Miguel Duhamel. A better companion than your dog, it was also happy to be ridden on a daily basis or to San Francisco for the weekend, and it was so well regarded it enticed Ed-in-Cheese Duke to buy a new one and take it club racing – that’s his old bike in the picture here. At the time, it was a “sportbike”; today we’d have to invent a new category, probably the “plastic-covered standard.” All yours for $4,998.
