Did Honda Superhawk Police motorcycles really
exist? Are they rare? Where were they used? Did they actually see Police duty?
For a long time, the picture of a "Full Dress"
Police Superhawk (picture on the left) was the only evidence I could find confirming the
existence of this exotic variant of the CB77. It seems that their scarcity (in the
US, at least) is in an inverse proportion to the amount of speculation that surrounds
I have recently come in contact with the owner of
the above bike who kindly provided more photos and information.
And in a true testament to the power of the internet, an e-mail made its way to my
attention - a message in response to this web site - which gives these mythical bikes an
even more exotic and international stature. I will update
this area with more information, as it becomes available. For now, let's take
comfort in knowing that these CYP77 bikes really did exist and that some perfectly
preserved (or is it restored?) examples are being displayed at
shows. There certainly is a special something about a Police bike in captivity, is there not?
