Honda first offered a 400cc twin in 1977 alongside the four-cylinder CB400F that had been around since 1974. Together with the CB250T, the new CB400T replaced the outgoing CJ250/360T models, but the duo were soon updated to 'N' specification, featuring Honda's 'Euro' styling and Comstar wheels. Delivering its overhead-camshaft six-valve engine's claimed 43bhp maximum via a six-speed gearbox, the CB400N was capable of 106mph while managing a fuel consumption of around 60mpg when ridden with restraint. An immense success, the model remained a fixture of the Honda range for many years. During this period the engine remained the same apart from a lick of black paint for 1982, an upgraded front brake being introduced at the same time, wile changes to the cycle parts were mainly cosmetic. Bike magazine tested a CB400N for its September 1982 edition, finding that it had "abundant good qualities such as compactness, excellent road manners, revviness and reliability". This particular CB400N has belonged to the current vendor since October 2016. MoT'd to September 2020, the machine is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate and sundry bills for parts including a piston ring set (August 2017).
