A new retro classic is in town – The Yamaha SR400
You will love the retro simple-single looks of the Yamaha SR400. A collectable classic in many parts of the world, the bike has been in constant production since before most of us were born. One reason the original SR400 has become such an immensely popular model throughout the world is because riders of all ages and experience levels appreciate its light, slim and ‘strippable’ body. The compact tubular high-tensile steel semi-double cradle frame actually doubles up as an oil tank to save space, thus making the bike an attractive customisable option.
The Yamaha SR400 has truly stood the test of time like no other model. It represents everything that is good about motorcycling. You just have to surf the net to witness how this timeless retro just oozes charm and authenticity, and be mesmerised by the countless styles of café racer, bobber or street scramblers that have mutated from the original SR400 form.
