The SR400 is powered by a 399cc, single-cylinder,
air-cooled, SOHC, 2-valve engine that produces a
torquey, “thumper” engine character that makes it
an absolute blast to ride.
The SR weighs a mere 384 pounds and has a slim
chassis and natural riding position with a low,
31-inch seat height. This combination makes for a
machine that is well suited to both entry riders as
well as experienced enthusiasts.
Virtually unique among today’s street bikes, there’s
no push-button starter. The SR400 is equipped with
an easy-to-use kick starter as the only means of
getting the engine running. That will draw smiles
from old-school motorcycle fans and appeal to more
modern motorcycle enthusiasts who value the allure
of riding a motorcycle that stands out in the crowd.
The Yamaha SR400 is the perfect motorcycle for
both the custom bike builder and the rider who loves
personalization. The SR is world renowned for its
basis as the perfect platform as a Café or Street
Tracker machine. Personalization and customization
are limited only by the designer’s imagination.
