Honda reveals CBR400R sportsbike

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Honda has revealed a new 400cc-class motorcycle for the entry-level segment. The new CBR400R is in simple terms a downsized version of the CBR500R, and comes with the latest & sporty styling from the Honda Big Bike family. The new CBR400R however is not announced for India, but it could be a good motorcycle to be positioned next to the upcoming CB300R naked street bike.

The 2019 Honda CBR400R comes with all-LED illumination including headlamp, tail lamp and turn indicators. The bike gets a telescopic front fork, rear monoshock, ABS, petal disc brakes, fully faired body style, split seats, multi-spoke alloy wheels, clip-on handlebars, forged levers, digital instrument cluster and the likes…

The Honda CBR400R is powered by a 399cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder motor which produces 46 HP of power @ 9000 RPM and 38 Nm of torque @ 7500 RPM matched to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper-assist clutch. With a fuel tank capacity of 17L and a claimed fuel efficiency number of 41 kmpl, this would be a good touring motorcycle.

If launched in India, this bike will rival the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 400 & the Yamaha YZF-R3.
