2008 Honda XR400SM
Honda’s latest XR400 Motard has hit the streets in a new two tone white colour scheme, boasting flare graphics and gold rims that set it apart from all others in the class.
The XR400M is powered by a 400cc air-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine that offers superior intake and exhaust performance as well as high combustion efficiency that provides powerful mid-range torque. The dual exhaust system further provides for effective power withdrawal whilst the single axle balancer reduces overall vibration.
The XR’s exclusively designed semi-double cradle frame with inverted telescopic front suspension provides superb on-road manoeuvrability. The ProLink rear suspension system has an adjustable damper system staged compression and rebound, and with 17” on-road tyres, the XR is an excellent around town commuter as well as being a machine that can handle a wide variety of off road conditions with ease.
With airborne-like appearance in line with CRF design concepts, the flared shroud on the tank gives the bike an aggressive styling as well as providing an efficient means of engine cooling. The headlight visor and multi-reflector headlight help to highlight the powerful design of the front area, whilst the seat enables smooth weight shift and comfort on long rides.
The lightweight and high-rigidity performance calliper and sintered brake pads provide strong and comfortable braking performance. The bike also comes fitted with an anti-theft protection system including a strengthened handle lock, sturdy combination lock ignition key cylinder, and pre-wiring for a separately sold alarm kit.
Recommended retail for the XR400M is $9990 (including GST, excluding stamp duty and Dealer delivery).
