2006 Honda VTR1000F Firestorm

Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm

There are a lot of big twin sportsbikes out on the roads these days, but none compare to the VTR100F FireStorm for its smooth balance of lean proportions, breathtaking acceleration and telepathically responsive handling and control. Pumping out a hearty roar from its powerful, free-revving 90-degree DOHC V-twin engine, the FireStorm responds 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 offers easy day-to-day riding manners. Built on a slim and lightweight 'Pivotless' design that isolates its aluminium frame from lateral rear wheel stresses, the FireStorm provides sporty handling that is light of touch and smoothly responsive to your every input. However, as playful and easy-handling as it is, its wilder side lurks just beneath the surface, waiting to come vividly to life each time you crank open its throttle. That's when this FireStorm lives up to its name. Enjoy it whenever you can.
