THANKS HONDA!

What the 600 Hor­net gave us

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

A GREAT NEW NAME

Honda de­buted the name in 1994 with its Ja­pan-only 250 and the US never got it, over there the name is owned by AMC, dat­ing back to the 1952 Hud­son Hor­net.

SHADES OF BLADE

The odd­ball 16in front and rear 180-sec­tion tyres were lifted straight from, of all bikes, the mightly Fire­blade. And why not…

HOR­NET RAC­ING

Or, specif­i­cally, the Honda Hor­net Cup – one of the most suc­cess­ful (and lu­natic) one-make rac­ing series of re­cent years.

SCORCHED PIL­LIONS

Well, scorched an­kles at least. Those high pipes were the big­gest and bold­est in the class.
