Description:
The Honda VTR1000F is a V-twin sportbike manufactured by Honda. Known in the U.S. as the SuperHawk, outside the U.S. it is marketed as the Firestorm.

Introduction

The 1997 Firestorm used an all new 90-degree V-twin. The bike introduced several new design concepts such as the "semi-pivotless frame", side radiator, single-casting engine case, connecting rods with cap screws instead of nuts, and the largest carburetors Honda ever put on a motorcycle (48 mm). "Semi- Pivotless frame" meant that engine was a stressed member with the swingarm bolted directly to the engine.

Improvements

From model year 2001, Honda introduced a number of improvements. These included increasing the tank from 16 liters to 19 liters, internal modifications to the front forks, an improved riding position thanks to less steeply raked clip-on bars and an LCD display for fuel level, engine temperature, dual trip meters, odometer and clock. A Honda Ignition Security System (HISS) immobiliser also became standard.

The US market (Superhawk), never received the larger tank, but retained the original 16 liter (4.2 US gallons).
