Yamaha SR400 has the retro-inspired design with a modern twist.

Developed from modern technology, this motorcycle has been the all-time favorite of riders who are looking for fast, user friendly and comfortable road machine. Power comes from a 399cc air-cooled engine being paired with a fuel injection system for optimal power delivery. This engine delivers strong beats and lively character that invites the rider to do more. Strike few kicks on SR400 and the engine begins to run with no choke simply due to the piston and decompressor placed. Standard brakes are fine, no trouble at cruising speed. Equipped with standard suspension the motorcycle is incredibly smooth to ride on uneven surfaces.

In order to make this motorcycle 100% economical, Yamaha worked on its fuel and exhaust system. A 3-way catalyzer is used to maintain minimal emissions. From rushing along the streets to urban exploring, this Yamaha SR400 is the perfect choice!

Yamaha SR400 review
We went to test the Yamaha SR400 with reviews in mind.
Recently, we went out to test a retro style Yamaha SR400. In the city, we got trap in a serious traffic, but glad to find way out thanks to its amazing agility. Furthermore, rushing out from a crowded street is never a problem, it shows exceptional lane splitting job.
The gearing is well suited for street rides, it has adequate power to squeeze out from tight places and still has excellent top end power. After riding on flat surfaces, we headed to some canyon carving. Surprisingly this 399cc motorcycle performed well on the corners and twists, its ability is beyond our expectations. We pushed it harder as we go on each corner, squeezing the throttle, the suspension is plush and gives comfortable feeling. It steers well, soaked up the bumps easily and rides well. We made it to the highway with little traffic, cruising at 60mh is ideal for the SR400 however it may struggle to keep pace with the fast lane. We enjoyed kick starting the engine, its easy and fun all thanks to its integrated fuel injection system.
Yamaha SR400 is ideal for anyone who can drive, both beginners and experienced riders. Seating position is relaxed, confidence boosting and connect the riders to the motorcycle. Despite of its retro look and small size its still the choice of many riders.
