Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1986 Honda NS400R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

In 1983, Freddie Spencer became the world’s youngest 500cc World Champion, and he did it on a Honda V3. Honda responded by releasing a 250cc production bike to commemorate the win, but it took them until 1985 to build something closer to the actual size of Freddie’s champion. That was the NS400R, and even though it gave up 100cc and plenty of power to the race bike, Honda called it a “race replica”.

The two-stroke V-3 displaced 387cc and it was good for 72 horsepower and 37 pound feet of torque, both at nearly 10,000 rpm. Oh – and the whole thing weighed less than 360 pounds. For more information on the NS400R, check out this article from Classic-Motorbikes.net. Depending on who you talked to, the NS400R wasn’t as fast or aggressive as the 500cc race reps from Yamaha and Suzuki – but the tradeoff was that this was a confident handling bike. A review rehosted on Motorcycle Specs says “the NS is exciting and pretty near faultless.”

This example is VIN: NC192002649.

The odometer shows 30,093 kilometers (18,698 miles).

The seller imported it from England and has owned it since 2011. He says that he has not put any miles on it.

“It had the carbs removed and ultrasonic cleaned, all the old fuel was removed and replaced with clear premium fuel.”

Cosmetic Blemishes:
Photos of all known blemishes are included in the album up top.
