1976 Yamaha RD400
Registration no. PRB 371R
Frame no. 1A3-002993
Engine no. 1A3-002993
Yamaha updated its long-running RD350 twin in 1976, lengthening the stroke to create the RD400. Boasting completely revised styling (shared with the equivalent RD250) the RD400 featuring a coffin-shaped fuel tank, 'speed block' graphics (in Europe) and, for the first time on a production roadster, cast alloy wheels. Although there was no significant increase in peak power over the RD350, the larger engine had a much better spread of torque and, just like its predecessor, proved highly amenable to tuning. This example was purchased by the vendor in August 2012 having been restored during 2005/2006. We are advised that the carburettors have been cleaned and the plugs and battery renewed, and that the machine is in generally good running order, though further re-commissioning is advised before returning it to the road. Offered with a V5C document and three expired MoTs.
