Now regarded as a 1970s classic, the Honda CB400F appeared in 1974. Described as ‘the poor boy’s musclebike’, it offered a four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine in a 250-sized package and performed better than many 500s. With a stylish four-into-one exhaust, six gears and rear-set footrests, it was every boy-racer’s dream and a huge commercial success. Comparing it to the opposition, Bike magazine reckoned the CB400 ‘represents a brilliantly engineered concept. It retains its appeal on several fronts: it’s a four-stroke, and an awful lot of people are biased towards four-strokes; it’s as quick as the two-strokes, yet on average road use will give considerably better fuel consumption; its handling is noticeably better than the two-strokes; and who can dispute that it’s easily the best sounding 400?’ Manufactured in 1976 and registered in Holland in August 1995, this example is described by the vendor as in generally good condition and offered with Netherlands registration papers. A total of 37,543 kilometres (approximately 23,300 miles) is currently displayed on the odometer.
