Honda XR400R

Honda XR 400 appeared in 1996 and was focused on export - North America, Europe, Australia. The motorcycle was a typical soft enduro class suitable for use on public roads, with soft long travel suspensions and a derated engine.

The Honda XR400R is based on a 1-cylinder 4-stroke air-cooled 397 cc engine producing 34 hp. power and 33 Nm of torque. The motor has 4 radial valves (RFVC system - Radial Four Valve Combustion Chamber) and one camshaft.

2004 was the last year of production of the Honda XR400R, after which it was replaced by a new series - Honda CRF450. Also, since 2005 in the domestic Japanese market, based on the XR400R, a factory motard model has appeared - the Honda XR400 Motard. This motorcycle has received a number of technical differences:

  • Engine. Decreased the compression ratio (9.3 → 8.8), reduced the exhaust diameter, got a smaller vacuum carburetor (instead of an enlarged flat throttle). The maximum power has decreased (34 → 30 hp).
  • Pendants. Gets an inverted fork, shortens suspension travel.
  • Wheels. Receives road wheels and tires with a diameter of 17 '.
  • Brake system. The diameter of the front brake disc is increased (256 → 276 mm).
  • Transmission. The gear ratio decreases (gears become longer).

The Honda XR400 Motard model existed until 2008 inclusive, after which it also left the market and did not receive further development.
