35-40 pieces of CB 400SF ?? When and Where ?? Can we also Import a CB 400 Through Honda ?? ... Any Idea ??.. Any contact ?

CB 400 is built like a tank and is equally agile too, The best part of it is that it can be used for everyday use like a Unicorn (barring the fuel average and a few more things)

Nope you cant at-least through Honda, but visit some south east Asian country pick it and ship it to India and pay the duty, bike will be yours but it should be brand new, many web sites also sells these small bikes on-line along with shipping, google it.
And yes i got over 30 KMPL mileage on this bike that too in Bangalore traffic.Awesome wooooosh wooosh sound all around, perfect balance between front and rear, doesn't felt like heavy bike.But this is like Splendour for the owner of this super four as he is more into 2 stroke yamaha twins and owns at-least 5 of them at present including rarest and just one piece of yamaha R1Z 250 in India.

Rihan no idea man but it should be the cost of bike+110% duty+-10% here and there and shipping cost. Check out local mechanics who deal on these bikes(need to be careful whether it's legal or not) as many are available between 2-3L, Jose near cantonment railway station deals with these SBK's.

Hi all,

Good news. Display bikes have reached the showroom in delhi. I had taken a day off today and generally just called the dealer to check on the status. He said they have got two display bikes (red, STD and ABS) a few hours ago and if I want, I can see them. I was at the showroom in no time and voila, there they were in flesh and blood. Absolutely droolworthy stuff. I must say, all the speculation about size etc be put to rest. This one from Honda is HOT!!!!!. clicked it from all angles, will be uploading pics in just a bit. No test rides as yet. Good news is, mine is the first booking at the dealership and I get the keys to my wheels by early next week. Can't wait. And yes, after a long time, I feel like a kid again. Now I need to find my blackberry data cable to download the pics.

cheers, Sid

Ha ha. On a side note, I am glad I stay away from Bangalore else I would have been afraid of running into you everytime I stepped out; you are awesome with your T-bhp sticker spottings. Amazing skills.

Pics attached. Saree guard is a complete disaster. Can't fathom what was Honda thinking when they agreed for this one. Overall, bike's a good one. Take out the Saree guard and the front number plate, and voila, you have a good looking head turner. Mine's the first booking, so I can expect the delivery next week as told by the dealership. I booked with Pragnya Honda at Okhla-II and bikes are on display there. Enjoy the pics.

Cheers, Sid

Haha! The saree guard is a joke. Looks great otherwise!
What chances of getting a test ride on your CBR once you get it home?

You are welcome anyday. I stay in Faridabad, hope not too far out for you.

Dealerships will open test drives as soon as they get temp numbers for display bikes. I was told I can test drive coming monday.

Only red at this dealership. I am tracking another forum wherein someone actually did the inaugration of all three colours at the same dealership in Delhi. Sort of like the first customer to book, gets to unveil the bikes, pull up the cover and all the dance and song around it. Don't have the dealership details as yet. So if one wants to see all three colours at the same place, one can go to this one. will post as soon as I get to know.

To my mind, the bike looks more expensive than it costs. Don't think you will regret taking this one, just my two cents.

Cheers, Sid

What is that? A refrigerator tray?

Its a design disaster even by refrigerator tray standards! They have ruined the overall look with the numberplate and saree guard and front numberplate (which is somewhat ok)! Got to see the bike in showroom, but my enthusiasm for getting one of these bikes is decreasing with each passing day & pics.

The bike looks great. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I will definitely visit the showroom once the bikes are available for display in bangalore.

Same here, I was eagerly waiting for this bike. My enthusiam has gone down as I am not sure whether I will be able to devote time for touring during weekends. It does not make sense to use the bike for commuting in busy bangalore roads. I do not use my bike nowadays for commuting as the summer heat is unbearable with jacket.

Hi all,

Details of Delhi dealership that has all three colours on display given below:

Rajindra honda.
Address is 969E, 100 ft road, babarpur, shahdara, delhi-110032
Contact nos. 22832997/98, 9310457400.

This is as quoted by a member in another online forum. Haven't called the dealership as yet as its too far from my place. So I will give it a miss.

Cheers, Sid
