Honda’s White Knight For Learners

10 March 2009 - The 2009 edition of the learner approved (LAMS) CB400 has just been released and for the first time, is available in a clean, crisp white colour scheme.

Offering the perfect combination of performance, reliability and value, the CB400 provides an alternative for new riders who want to start off on something bigger than a 250cc motorcycle.

The CB400 is undoubtedly the most sophisticated motorcycle in the LAMS program to date, offering ABS with Honda’s Combined Brake System and one of the most powerful overall designs available in the smaller capacity range.

Its inline four-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid cooled 400cc engine produces a band of strong, accessible power that also appeals to experienced riders who appreciate performance.

Described by reviewers as a “pocket rocket”, and way ahead of the competition in the technology and performance stakes, the CB400 also features lowered emissions and optimum fuel economy made possible by an electronically controlled fuel injection system (PGM-FI), coupled with Honda’s HYPER VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control).

The CB’s naked good looks, including stainless steel exhaust and striking paint schemes will catch the eye of the most discerning riders, from those who are new to two-wheels to those looking for an outstanding daily commuter.

The standard 2009 CB400 has an RRP of $10,990 (including GST); ABS version is $11,990 (including GST).
