The Honda CBR600F, also known as the Honda Hurricane (in the US), is a four-cylinder sport bike made by Honda that can be restricted so that it can be ridden on an A2 licence.

Unfortunately, the newer CBR600F are too powerful for an A2 licence, which is why you will be limited to a choice of CBR600Fs from the 1987 – 1990 range.
