Originally designated model number RC31, the Honda Hawk GT NT50 was the second Honda motorbike to be produced with a Pro-Arm suspension setup. Often described as a ‘cult’ model, the Honda Hawk is classified as a ‘naked’ bike or roadster, and is suitable for general-purpose road usage. Designed with bolt-on separate rear frame, it comes with a 647cc, four-stroke engine, and offers a maximum 58 HP at 5000 rpm.Generational differences of the Honda Gold Wing
Designed as a tourer, the Gold Wing series all feature a liquid-cooled flat engine, gear-driven generator, and shaft drive:
- GL1000: Produced between 1975 and 1979, this model debuted with a dummy tank, electric starter, and kick start lever. In 1977 the dry weight increased from 265 kg to 270 kg, and the seat and handlebars were modified. The kick start was removed in the following year and the 1979 release was the final model to feature a 1L engine.
- GL1100: Emphasising torque over horsepower, the 1980 Gold Wing release had a larger bore, modified cylinder heads, and a shortened final drive ratio. The 1982 version came with new brakes and wider tires, while 1983 brought significant changes to the running gear.
- GL1200: Only manufactured in 1984, the third-generation Gold Wing reduced wheel diameters and increased tire widths to improve handling. With a stronger frame and better fuel economy, this was the final four-cylinder model. . Which classic Honda motorcycles provide an enjoyable off-road experience?
If you like classic Honda bikes but want an off-road vehicle, the Honda CR series might suit. Launched in 1973 with a two-stroke 123 cc engine that could achieve a max speed of 60 mph, the CR125 dominated motocross events in its era. The CR250M Elisnore of the same year remained relatively unchanged until the 1980s, when the suspension, front disc brake, and exhaust all received upgrades under the new model name of CR250R. It wasn't until 1997 that a stronger, more robust, aluminium frame was introduced. The final two-stroke model in 2007 had a 249 cc engine capable of 45 HP, a two-gallon tank, and a five-speed transmission.
