Playing at pace, the Hurricanes chalked up a staggering eleven tries to the visitors single consolation effort at Sky Stadium.
Back on home soil, the Wellington side had plenty of room to run in attack, securing a 26-nil lead by half-time.
Fullback Josh Moorby scored a hat-trick, with two tries each to Billy Proctor and Wes Goosen.
Of note, the Hurricanes welcomed veterans Dane Coles and 108-test All Blacks prop Owen Franks off the bench.
Franks was making his Hurricanes debut after recovering from a torn Achilles.
