If you were to write an epitaph for the Honda Blackbird, it might read something like this: "World's fastest production motorcycle, comfortable sport tourer." Manufactured from 1996-2008, the Blackbird was competed with the ultra-fast Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11, but Honda's missile surpassed its rival in speed. What made the Blackbird's top speed of 178.5 mph even more mind-blowing was that the bike that achieved it also offered a relatively comfy ride for long-haul touring. Sure, Honda set the handlebars low to position riders more aerodynamically for fast riding, but you could add bar risers to enhance comfort for lower-speed riding and a screen for wind protection. Head to eBay for parts such as a seat or fairing to customize or maintain your Honda Blackbird or to become the proud owner of one of these pre-owned bikes. With a host of reliable sellers on the site offering a wide selection of parts and bikes, your Blackbird can be what you want it to be: a bullet on two wheels or an easier rider.
