Why it won a Ten Best Award: Actually, it never did win one. But that doesn't make it a less-than-desirable used bike. To the contrary, the Nighthawk 750 is an ideal commuter/everyday bike for quite a large number of riders. Its full-size chassis (59.3-inch wheelbase), long dual seat (30.9 inches high) and upright ergonomics make it comfortable for both rider and passenger. Its linear power delivery and excellent acceleration are far more than adequate for most general-purpose riding. Plus, the engine is practically bulletproof, a descendant of the CB750F powerplants that date back to the very late 1970s. In 2003, Cycle World described the Nighthawk 750 as "a Universal Japanese Motorcycle, the type of bike that helped make Honda, Kawasaki, et al famous."
