1982 Yamaha Chappy

In 1991 and 1992 the Honda CBR600F2 (AKA Hurricane replacement) won virtually comparison test it was entered in the motorcycle publication world.  It was the premier bike in the middle-weight sport-bike class, no question about it.  To find one that hasn't been wrecked, stripped or flogged is a near impossible feat today. This particular bike is one that fell through the cracks. It is a one-owner bike that has been meticulously maintained and garage-kept. It is complete stock/original form except for the period-correct Yoshimura Slip-on exhaust.  A future collectible to be sure.

The bike is a 599cc in-line four that in the day had a claimed peak horsepower of 100 at 12,000rpm and a peak torque at 46.8ft/lbs at 10,500rpm. It has a six speed transmission and dual-disc front brakes. Its fuel tank holds 4.2 gallons and the bike gets 46.4 mpg giving it a range of about 190 miles. It weighs 408 pounds (dry) and has a seat height of 31.9 inches. 

As two separate magazines said in '91 and '92 -- "... the CBR600F2 is the best sportbike money can buy..."  So now's your chance to grab the best sport bike money could buy.... in 1992.
