Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Affectionately known as the Babyblade, the Honda CBR400RR was a 400cc sportbike sold only in Japan for approximately 15 years. The nickname came about as it was the smaller brother to the Fireblade.

In the 90s, the American motorcycle market was the epitome of “the bigger, the better.” But in Japan, the 400cc class was where most of the innovation was happening due to licensing/displacement restrictions. Every Japanese OEM invested countless dollars into improving their 400cc offerings, and models wouldn’t go more than a couple of years without significant upgrades.

As Visor Down found in its review, “it might lack top end zap, but what it has is a far wider spread of power that makes it considerably less frantic to ride. Overtakes don’t require a tap dance on the gear lever and pulling away isn’t a clutch-frying experience either. It feels like someone has taken the power characteristics of a 600cc bike, and just shrunk them a little. Because of this friendly delivery, the CBR is a pleasure to ride. The clutch is nice and light for town riding, the seat height low and the power on tap instead of needing a search party. On the open road the CBR delivers the kind of handling and performance you’d expect from a 400, in a refined fashion.”

This example is VIN: NC291102857.

The odometer shows 31,488 kilometers (19,565 miles).
