I am sorry, forget the question no.1 in that post. That was an error.

Please tell me for the other 3 questions. Also, is the CB400 SuperFour I see in online reviews is what you are talking about? I can get a CB400 SuperFour topping at 115mph for 50,ooo rupees? Really?

dude i have a 98 400 rr myself and i tell its a good bike to start of as your friend is moving on from his pulsar and more than that the spares of honda are much cheaper and easier to find , this you have to take into consideration because of the fact that 400 's are no more produced by honda and you will find a 97, 98,99 model which always have a niggle here or there so getting spares easily and cheaply would definetely help
i would suggest you to go for a 400 rr it souinds great, handles brilliantly and gives around 18 kmpl in city . i use my bike almost everyday except the monsoons so no problems that way .
nice to see someone geting a 400 cheerz

u will have to talk to garages in ur city and ask them for dealers who import such bikes. Mumbai/pune/delhi will be the best 3 cities to hunt a 400cc bike. Expect to pay around 3lacs for a 4-5yr old 400cc bike. it makes more sense to extend the budget and a get a 600cc one

Be careful before buying these 250's and 400's as they are not in production any more and most of them are trashed royally and you wont come to know from the cosmatic looks, i know one very damn good mint condition bike in Hydrabad but may be you wont like it, its 1986 Honda VF500F owner is asking 2.2L ridden only 7K.
Or look for Honda 250 Hornet or some inline twin or V Twin as they are also fast enough to eat our super bikes(Pulsars, CBZ'z, Karis and Bulls).

3L for a 4-5 year old 400, firstly there i doubt are any 4-5 year old 400s around, 10-12 year old being the ages for most. They should bein the range of 2.5-2.75L depending on condition.
Though recently i was told about brand new cb 400 vtecs being imported, and with full paperwork one of those would cost 4.xx L

Yep, you right about the price range for a 400 which are approx 10-12yrs old. I just picked up a '96 Honda CB400 SuperFour NC31.
You are wrong about the pricing on the brand new CB400's though, they will cost you nothing less than 5.5 to 6 for the Vtech models.

Congrats on your new bike mb, te superfour is a lovely commuter bike capable of those occasional fun rides.
About the pricing, Rt and i met someone very recent;y with a spnaking new cb400 vtec with gold wheel, he said he had bought it for 5.25.
The 4.xx price was given to me 8-9 months ago by someone on the forum whose been there, done it all sorts.

no point looking for a good 400 as if you pay little more, can get u a decent 600. Spares for sporty 400 will be a bitch to get..

best of the 400 lot are the later generation honda V4 (VFR400) . But again servicing / repairing a V4 in India will again be an issue.

You bet, although I really wouldn't prefer to ride the bike on a daily basis, cause this one's bloody loud & pulls like hell. It's more satisfying when you use it only for fun rides, am sure u know what I mean :o). Will post the pics soon, my personal email is not working.
Yep, the Vtec '07 model will be yours for that price, around 5.5 to 5.75, mainly it's the commission that makes the difference in price. It's an awesome bike in itself the CB400 series!!!

Nope, not at all. It all boils down to personal preference.
When I rode my friends CBR600 (my earlier choice) I very quickly realised I could not use all the 100+horses it had. The usage would be strictly restricted to weekend rides.
But, on the other hand I have 50+horses on the CB400 which is more than sufficient for a city like Pune, lets face it, we don't have the slick roads that developed countries provide. It's very loud, pulls like hell, spares are not a problem at all, specially for Honda.

mb, now taking to a 400 after riding a 600 is a bold step, especially when you first wanted to get a 600.
i have ridden a mid 95-96 super four once, a very well kept one. Was a short spin, and a one of the first few on the imports, but the flickable nature of the super four, the confidence of something serious not happenening (compared to a 600 or liter) with an extra flick of the wrist and sufficient power is just a brilliant package.
Champ you gotta post some pictures.
And, see if you can make it to this one, probably meet us at lonavla by 7.30 a.m.
