2016 Yamaha SR400 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

A legendary classic that’s a kick to ride, with retro 1970s styling and one of the best performing 399cc air-cooled engines….

RETRO COOL. BUILT TO CUSTOMIZE.

The new SR400 is a legendary classic that’s a kick to ride. With retro styling and one of the best performing 399cc air cooled engines, it embodies the meaning of “Everything old is new again.”

The big single has always held a special place in the hearts of motorcyclists. And when we launched the original Yamaha SR400 over 30 years ago it became a favourite with riders who yearned for a simple, agile and engaging motorcycle.

Over the years the huge level of interest in the SR has never gone away. And now the Yamaha SR400 is ready to become an integral part of the daily lives of a whole new generation of riders who appreciate its enduring appeal.

This timeless retro just oozes charm and authenticity wherever you look. And as the basis for creating your own café racer, bobber or street scrambler, the SR400 offers endless possibilities.



 



2016 Yamaha SR400 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Charismatic, Torquey Engine
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. Fuel injection gives the motor fantastic response and modern practicality.
•Light and Compact
The SR400 weighs a mere 384 pounds and has a slim chassis and natural riding position with a low, 30.9-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 authenticity in their motorcycle.
•Built to Customize
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.
