Re: this is kewl 400RR?!?

This was my second 'street' bike, let me remember, ah yes, 1993.
It started the Honda fever thing for me.

Re: this is kewl 400RR?!?

yeah, I think this one is 94 judging by the color. *Same color came over here on the F2 and the RR. *That tail screams 954 to me...

Re: this is kewl 400RR?!?

I saw a CBR400 at the bike show in 1997 and asked the guys if it was ever coming to Canada. Of course, they had no clue and told me to check with dealers. (Looking back, I was just about to buy my first bike and was clueless on the whole motorcycle scene). All dealers I spoke with told me I was nuts and they had never heard of them. I late found out that they were never coming here... *sigh*

Although I've never ridden one, I think they would make a good learning bike (I believe current gen 600cc bikes are not good 'first bikes&#39 because it looks the part but wouldn't have enough power to kill you. I think I'd even buy one as a track bike because the power would be limited down the front straight but I could still corner like mad. I know it sounds strange but speed doesn't give me the adrenaline rush, it's the cornering so I want a less powerful, better handling bike to start with on the track.

Honda? Are you listening? Introduce a sub-600cc to the NA market please.

Re: this is kewl 400RR?!?

When I was in Thailand this past X-mas those things were all over the place. Very few bikes over 150cc's. They mostly had lot's of Repsol replica 150 two strokes and scooters. There were a few of those CBR400's. Then once in a while you would see a large displacement bike but they were rentals for the tourists usually. Locals were too poor to afford the cost of importing something that size. They usually don't allow any displacements larger than 150 I think unless you pay out the nose for import fees.
