2005 Honda VTR1000F Firestorm

Lean, muscular and a breathtaking blast to ride, the VTR1000F FireStorm tears across hills and valleys with commanding control and a hearty roar pouring forth from its powerful, free-revving 90-degree DOHC V-twin engine. Built on a slim and lightweight 'Pivotless' aluminium frame, which mounts the swingarm directly to the back of the engine, thereby isolating the frame from its stresses, the FireStorm offers handling that is light of touch and smoothly responsive to your every input. Every twist of its throttle is met with decisive impulse that comes on strong from low in its V-twin powerband, pushing you back into its comfortable stepped seat with a rocketing thrust of acceleration. Enshrouded in the sleek, curvaceous lines of its beautifully proportioned bodywork, the FireStorm still offers easy day-to-day riding manners, but with a wilder side lurking just beneath its surface that comes vividly to life each time you crank open its throttle.
