Tokyo Show: Vote on the unveiled 2008 Honda CB400SF and CB400SB

The Tokyo Motorcycle Show has opened to the public today, and one of the new motorcyles on display is the 2008 Honda CB400. The 2008 Honda CB400SF and the 2008 Honda CB400SB are differentiated by a retro-style fairing, but both feature a new engine, with fuel injection. Previously the CB400 has used a carburated engine which has not been able to...

nice but....

Good to see the manufacturers are thinking a little more realistically but why can't they produce something completely original instead of relying on the glory days of the past? This is clearly inspired by the CBX400/550 from the 80's (no bad thing) as is the new Ninja 250, basically a rehash of the old GPX 250 (which was half a GPZ500 motor). The faired version in particular does look great though and if I was just starting out on two wheels, this would be near the top of my list, trouble is many newbies don't jump on the back of a sportsbike because theres no other choice, it's what they aspire to right from the start.

The bike has been around for ages. Time for some serious updates.

Cb400 style

Just add some streetfighter headlights, a bellypan and pain the wheels and viola, bad ass.

I wonder !

Being a 6'3", 16 stone commuter, i wonder if the specifications will stack up ? I agree with youdontknowi's comments - more 400cc choice and will they be sold in u.k. and at what price ?

ZZZZZZZZZZ

Another boring rice rocket. Just when are the japs going to wake up and build an Icon of a bike. This Honda they have when I was reading the guff on it I nearly, dropped off. Give me the exiting small UK bike builder from Hinckley Leicestershire's Triumphs every year they come up with a couple of winners. Sadly lacking from the Japanese line up.

Well..

..I wouldn't exactly call hyper-vtec-revo vvt & combined abs boring. The styling is retro bol d 'or for the faired model, nice. But, as kiwikeith points out, Triumph are turning out some great bikes, like the street triple 675.. Can't wait to see what 2008 brings...

Personally

i think this would be a great bike for someone who's just passed their test. I also think it looks great and not every one wants a sports bike.

Too easy to dismiss it

For new riders who want something fun, fairly fast yet cheap to insure, there isn't much choice except for the grey CB400 Super Fours already about; I own a 1995 faired version, costs me £170 fully comp to insure as a new rider with no NCB and it's a right little screamer! Personally I think if Honda decide to sell the new ones over here they'd do really well. OK, so it's no Street Triple, but what do you expect from a 400cc machine? Don't knock it til you've ridden it!
