Honda VTR1000 Superhawk Intro
This is my new bike. It's a 2002 Honda Superhawk 996.
I sold off my Honda Magna Gen 3, and got this beast. It's a V-Twin Sport
Bike and it's pure badass. The engine is amazing. This bike is my Daily
Driver. Last year, I rode my Magna every day, in all weather. So then I
picked up this one because I wanted something that wasn't a Cruiser. I had
several options, but after one test ride - this was the bike for me. The
V-Twin has an amazing amount of power that suits the way I ride. It's
light and agile, feeling like a 600 and not a 996, it's also nice and
narrow... like a much smaller bike... until you twist the wrist.
Since I picked up this bike, it has quickly become my very favorite bike
I've ever had or every ridden. Ever.
UPDATE: After I slid this bike down the highway from being clipped by a
semi that wanted to be in my lane, coming at me head on... it was pretty
wrecked. But I was offered 5 Large for it so I sold it and got my ZX-11.
Having sold this bike, I have to say it was a mistake. I will have to look
at getting another one. The ZX-11 that replaced it might be faster, but it doesn't have the Character
that the Superhawk has. I really miss that Engine.
