An iconic motorcycle is reborn and was launched last March 14, 2018 in the Philippines at Yamaha Y-Zone, Pasig City. The Yamaha SR400 is a legendary classic that depicts a heritage Japanese motorcycle icon since 1978. It is powered by a 399cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, SOHC, 2-valve engine.”This bike is the perfect motorcycle for both custom bike builder, enthusiasts and for those who wants a retro looking bike with a touch of heritage feels,” says Mr. Ryan Camus, Marketing Manager of Yamaha Philippines.
The modern SR400, same but different
Everything is identical, from the tank, to spoked wheels and rear drumbrake. The only difference is that the newSR400 is equipped with Fuel Injection while the older version is run by carburator. The 399cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 2-valve power plant with electronic fuel injection combined with the SR400’s light weight makes the bike a perfect modern classic day to day road companion. The single-cylinder design is easy to maintain, too. The torquey, single-cylinder engine provides “thumper” appeal and engine character with a feeling of direct power connection to the rear wheel adding to the fun factor of the SR400.
Kick it like old school
Just like its predecessors, the SR 400 maintained its kick-start feature and its actuated through a handlebar mounted compression release that makes starting the SR400 quick and easy, with very little kicking effort.
The 2018 Yamaha SR 400 is now available in all Yamaha Y-Zone and Yamaha Rev-Zone nationwide. SRp is at PHP 329,000.
