1998 Honda VTR1000 Super Hawk Motorcycle
1997 Honda VTR1000 Super Hawk

It's no secret that V-Twin sportbikes can be an incredible kick to ride, and the VTR1000 Super Hawk is among the best. Its narrow design gives it unbelievable ground clearance and makes it eminently flickable. Honda's twin-spar aluminum frames are legendary for their stiff construction, but by bolting the engine in as a stressed member, the Super Hawk has a chassis platform that's the basis for laser-sharp handling.

With incredible power available all throughout the rev-range, the Super Hawk is without a doubt the most exhilarating and enjoyable machine you'll have a chance to ride this year - and it's bound to redefine the standards of what a sportbike can and should do.
