    Left-handed compliments are awesome.

    Though, to be fair, at the time wouldn’t this be sort of like “iphone-killer” or “better than the 3-Series”?

    Makes me wish bike manufacturers still actually named their products, instead of the alphabet soup we have now. No, I don’t want a Zx10rrME22iPod, I want a goddamn Ninja!!

    In 1989 I purchased a used 600 Hurricane. Bad a$$ at the time.

    Not much of a fan of the ‘paso’ look and don’t care much for names on bikes such as nighthawk, ninja, fireblade etc. Love the prefex ZX10, ZX9 etc

      Don’t sully the Fireblade name around here. I’m their biggest fan.

    this cbr hurricane 600 was my first sports bike in the year 1990… yes it was the bad ass at the time with the F1 slip on.. nice!!!

    I’ve got an identical twin to the one at the end of the commercial, with aforementioned F1 pipe. If only the plastic was as bomb-proof as the motor. She’s been many peoples first bike over the years, but I think I’m going to restore her.

    Love that bike.

    I think I was thirteen when I saw that commercial back in ’86-’87, and it was full-stop the coolest thirty seconds on TV that year. I wasn’t even a motorcycle person (yet).
