The Honda VTR1000F Firestorm (known as the Super Hawk in the US) was a challenge to the Ducati V-twin bikes of the 1990's. First introduced in 1997 the VTR1000F Firestorm was an advanced bike. Featuring an aluminium truss twin-beam frame, adjustable sports suspension and a water-cooled, 8 valve V-twin engine the VTR1000F was both lighter and more powerful than the Ducati 916, a bike which cost twice the price.

The torquey V-twin provides plenty of power in the midrange coming out of corners. The VTR1000F Firestorm engine provides smoother power delivery than some of its competitors.

The chassis components, suspension and brakes, are nothing special, but are also adequate.


Review by: Shane
I bought a 2005 VTR Firestorm brand new, and 40% of the time the change from first to second goes smoothly. The rest of the time there is a loud crunching and grinding sounds. Has anyone else
had this faulty crunching noise?
