Honda unveils the all-new CBR400R motorcycle at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The superbike is completely redesigned to match the older siblings within CBR range. The 2016 CBR400R is most likely to be introduced in several countries within the following year.
Powering the 2016 CBR400R is a 399cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and is expected to produce 45.37bhp and 37Nm of peak torque.
Honda has provided the 2016 CBR400R with an all-new exhaust system. Part of the engine that is not covered by the fairing gets a flat gold paint scheme. The designers have focussed on providing the motorcycle a sporty avatar over its predecessor.
The 2016 Honda CBR400R gets a new step-up seat for the pillion and have omitted the grab-rails that were present on the previous models. Honda has instead opted for air-scoops just behind the riders seat. The CBR400R now looks more like a sports bike and less of a sports tourer.
The CBR400R motorcycle, however, maintains similar ergonomics to its predecessor. Honda previously showcased the 2016 Honda CBR500R at American International Motorcycle Expo. Both, the CBR400R and CBR500R share similar design language and engine with different engine cubic capacity.
Honda could showcase the new CBR400R at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi. Recently, Honda launched the CBR650F in the country, and the 2016 CBR400R will be slotted between the CBR250R and CBR650F when launched in India.
