Yamaha has introduced the SR400 Final Edition motorcycle in the Japanese market. The SR400 was first launched in 1978 and featured rather simple aesthetics along with a design in line with the Universal Japanese Motorcycle (UJM) style.

The bike has remained largely the same within the last 43 years and has made a cult following not just in Japan but in the Western markets as well.

At the heart of the bike sits a 399 cc, single-cylinder, SOHC, air-cooled, two-valve motor which is known to push out 23 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 28 Nm at 3,000 rpm. This engine has been rated to deliver a fuel economy of 29.7 kmpl. The transmission option available with the engine includes a five-speed gearbox.

The bike comes devoid of any modern-day features, so much so, that it doesn't even get an electric starter and continues to use kickstarter and a decompressor lever even in today's time. The fact that despite missing out on any modern-day features, the bike has remained on the assembly lines for over four decades is an achievement in itself.
