Unveiled during 1974 Cologne motorshow Intermot, the CB400F is a motorbike designed, manufactured and marketed by Honda from 1975 to 1977.
The CB400F was an updated version of it’s predecessor CB350F but with an all-new chassis, transmission and cylinder head. Honda’s motorcycle design and development was confined to only mechanical modifications between models at the time because Honda R&D was primarily concentrated on car manufacturing, especially the Civic.
The CB400F was powered by a 408cc four-stroke, inline four cylinder, single overhead cam engine churning out 37 horsepower and 32Nm of Torque paired with a six gear transmission. CB400F delivered blazing acceleration of 0-100 Kmph in 6.7 seconds and had a top speed of 166 Kmph. CB featured a sturdy double cradle steel chassis which contributed in its well renowned handling capability. Suspension responsibilities were provided by telescopic forks at the front and dual shocks at the back. Equipped with disc brake at the front and show in the rear. The 4 -1 megaphone silencer and the flat handle bar provided the bike the much required aggressive aesthetics.
