Honda Hurricane intro, October '86
Honda invited editors to not only sample the new CBR600 and 1000, but also tour HRC and its Asaka R&D skunkworks. We rode the banked oval and road course, checked out the dyno rooms, ate sushi and got a glimpse into what made Soichiro's boys so good. Being young, I didn't fully recognize how sacred that ground was: The CB750, GL1000, CBX, V45 and VFR750F had all been developed in those rooms and on that asphalt. Getting so close to that brilliance is part of what led me to work for Honda from '89 to '92.
