By 1997 the Japanese had finally seen enough of Ducatis success with the twin-powered 916 in showrooms across the world, and decided they should get in on the act. That year, Suzuki launched the wayward and potent TL1000S, while Honda pinned its hopes on the VTR1000F Firestorm.

Engine
996cc DOHC eight-valve 90 V-twin engine features identical 180 reversed heads and chain-driven camshafts.
Horizontally split crankcase incorporates swingarm pivot and Pro-Link(r) bracket mounts at rear.
Integrated upper crankcase/cylinder block casting contributes to lightweight, compact engine design.
Nutless connecting rods feature bolts threaded directly into tapped holes in rods. The design is lighter than a conventional bolt-and-nut combination. Carburized rods offer optimal balance of strength and durability. Lightweight, skirtless slipper pistons reduce reciprocating mass. Chain-driven camshafts operate valves by means of shimmed-bucket lifters. 48mm slanted flat-slide CV carbs provide sharp, linear response and are fed by a large-capacity 8-litre airbox.
High-accuracy, computer-controlled ignition system monitors engine speed and throttle angle for optimal performance throughout the rev range. Includes 10,100-rpm rev limiter.
Slim-tipped NGK VX spark plugs deliver excellent performance and enhanced rideability.
Air injection system designed into heads maintains optimum combustion efficiency.
All-stainless two-into-one-into-two exhaust system with 4.5-litre buffed-finish canister-style mufflers.
140mm, 10-plate hydraulic clutch.
Side-mounted dual radiators utilize low pressure of airflow passing over outer surface of cowling to draw air through from inside. Side positioning permits flow of air to reach cylinders and exhaust pipes for enhanced cooling efficiency, while facilitating front-cylinder service. At low speeds, a large right-side fan blows air directly out to the side and away from the rider.
Chain-driven water pump located in crook of V between cylinders.
High-efficiency oil cooler mounted in front of front cylinder head.
Slick shifting six-speed transmission.

Chassis/Suspension
Engine-mounted swingarm eliminates need for conventional pivot plates, allowing the twin-spar aluminium frame to weigh only 8 kilograms. Features massive D-section spars and curved box-section engine hanger-rails that reach back from the steering head to anchor directly on the engine, joining at the back to provide a solid mounting point for the top of the rear shock and the bolt-on seat rail.
41mm Honda Multi-Action System(tm) (HMAS(tm)) conventional cartridge front fork offers adjustable spring preload and rebound damping.
Pro-Link rear suspension system, mounted directly to the engine cases, features large-volume 40mm damper with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping.
Hybrid construction aluminium swingarm combines extruded spars with a rigid cast pivot section.
Hollow-section, triple-spoke cast aluminium wheels.
Wide-profile jointless-belt-type radial tires with ZR rating for confident long-term performance.
Dual floating front disc brakes with four-piston calipers and sintered metal pads. The 296mm rotors are mated to their aluminium inner rotors with eight inserts (down from the conventional 10). The 220mm rear disc brake is stopped by a single-piston caliper.

Additional Features
Gold anodized highlights include: clutch cover, water pump cover, alternator cover, sprocket cover and front fork legs.
Black anodized highlights include: front and rear brake calipers and upper triple clamp.
Instrument display features a large black-on-white-faced analog tachometer with 9500-rpm redline, white-on-black analog speedometer, LCD digital readouts for coolant temperature, fuel level, clock, odometer and A/B tripmeter. Indicator/warning lights include turn signals, high-beam, neutral and oil pressure.
Three-piece half-fairing provides excellent wind protection and aerodynamics.
Front fairing ports feed air to the cockpit to lighten handling at higher speeds and provide cooling airflow to the rider. Large side-ports maximize airflow through the side-mounted radiators and away from the rider.
Fins on lower sides of fairing produce down force at high speeds for enhanced cruising stability.
Fuel tank designed with sculpted indents for knees and handlebars.
One-piece seat cowl covers a compartment with specially molded recesses to accommodate most U-locks and cable locking devices. (Lock not included.)
Single headlight features free-form multi-curvature reflector and a clear lens for optimal brightness and reach.
Wide-view triangular rear view mirrors mounted on solid, die cast aluminium stays.
Aluminium die cast footpegs and stays and forged steel sidestand.
Compact 12AH maintenance-free battery.
