Retro Cool. Built to Customize.
The new SR400 is a legendary classic that’s a kick to ride. With its retro 1970s styling and one of the best performing 399cc air-cooled engines, the SR400 embodies the true meaning of the saying “Everything old is new again.” Jump on, give the kickstarter a stab, and you will be on your way.
Everything old is new again: Unlike some retro bikes that are modern interpretations of older designs, the SR400 is an authentic living classic which has been constructed to virtually the same specification as the original model. With its air-cooled engine and twin-shock chassis, this timeless big single represents a return to motorcycling's core values.
Pure mechanical beauty: Start with a 399cc air-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder engine with one intake valve, one exhaust valve, and one exhaust pipe – timeless simplicity. Add a slim chassis with a natural riding position that delivers sporty relaxed handling. What you get is an authentic design and pure mechanical beauty that makes the SR400 a true classic, from any angle.
Retro style with proven technology: The Yamaha SR400 has stood the test of time like no other model. It represents everything that is good about motorcycling. And the same core values that appealed to yesterday's motorcyclists are ready to inspire today's generation of riders who appreciate retro style with proven technology like fuel injection, high-tensile steel semi-double cradle frame that doubles up as an oil tank, plush suspension, and an easy-to-start air-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder engine.
Just kick it and go: The big single has always held a special place in the hearts of motorcyclists but kick starting a big single can be a challenge. Yamaha engineers have made kick starting the SR400 a breeze using a decompressor and piston position indicator.
Built to customize: 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.
