Honda CBR400R, CB400F and CB400X India Specifications Revealed- Expected Price and Details


Honda took the EICMA 2013 as an opportunity to showcase the 400cc beasts it has been brewing up for a while but the specifications of these bikes has been something that the company has been tight lipped about. But courtesy of the good folks back at Honda, today we have for you the specifications and pricing details about the 400cc family of the Honda that will hit the Indian roads soon to rival the Duke 390.

Honda CBR400R

The 400cc range includes 3 bikes, namely Honda CBR400R, CB400F and the CB400X which have essentially the same heart but three different body styles. The first one is a full faired sports bike, the second one is a naked streetfighter while the last one is a sort of a dual purpose bike which has the characteristics of an adventurer and a tourer. The heart of all these will be the same 396cc parallel twin 4 valve water cooled motor.

Honda CB400F

They will develop a maximum power of 46PS @ 9,500 RPM, giving you that red line performance and the peak torque of 37Nm will kick in at a slightly lower 7,500 RPM. This engine will be mated to a 6 Speed transmission. There will be a 320mm single petal disc up front and a single 240mm petal disc will be present at the rear. The bikes are expected to deliver a fuel efficiency of 39.7 kilometres to a litre as per the company but the real world figure in India is expected to be around 30-35 kilometres to a litre.

Honda CB400X

The bikes will come in ABS and Non ABS guise. And now let us talk about the expected prices that you will have to shell out for the bikes.

  1. I have been riding for 30 years and I really like the smaller bikes for better M.P.G.’s. I have a 2012 CBR250 R and it is not unusual for me to go on a 200 mile jaunt around southern California. I am passionate about my gas mileage. I have had other miscellaneous bikes and scooters. But I love my Honda most of all. (Don’t Tell my Suzuki Burgman 650 though. She sits next to my 250, and she does not get ridden much these days). In addition, my girlfriend has a PCX125, as well as, a CBR250R, also. (On a side note, I drive a Honda Fit Sport with Navigation.) Anyway, please bring the CB 400’s to America. I know they are meant for the other world markets, but if they get better mileage than the CB 500’s I know they would sell. Plus, they look AWESOME!!! Thank you for your time.
