The Yamaha XJR400 was first introduced in 1993 for the Japanese domestic market and lasted until 2009. Initially, the model had a fairly simple equipment and did not stand out from its competitors, but over time it underwent a number of restyling and received a number of technical advantages.

In 1996, a limited edition `` Yamaha XJR400R2 appears, which features a front fairing with rectangular headlights, a digital instrument panel and a black silencer. This version did not have much demand, and therefore was discontinued the same year.
In 1998, the design of the dashboard was changed, the engine was silver, and the fuel tank capacity increased from 18 to 20 liters.
2001 also brought another update to the Yamaha XJR400, replacing the Brembo calipers with new Nissin Sumitomo calipers from the sporty Yamaha YZF-R1 (1998-2001).
For 2004, the model receives changes in ignition and exhaust settings, which generally increase acceleration from low and medium revs. Also, the motorcycle is equipped with an immobilizer system.
In 2008, the end of production of the Yamaha XJR400R was announced due to the release of updated environmental regulations that the motorcycle did not comply with. However, the official sales of new motorcycles continued in 2009.
