Honda Nighthawk 750
(Link this page at http://paulsnighthawkpages.blogspot.com/p/nh-750.html)
The Nighthawk stays true to its heritage: Air cooled 750cc inline-four engine, double-cradle frame, single disk front and drum rear brake, and chain drive. The differences are ones of evolutionary refinement. It has hydraulic valve adjusters for zero-maintenance valves. Electronic ignition means there's no more fiddling with the idle speed. The engine's width is narrower as Honda has relocated the alternator behind the cylinders. They also added a small oil cooler to supplement the air cooling. Wheels are cast aluminum rather than spokes. The exhaust is a more modern four-into-two variety.
