Yamaha’s 2015 SR400 Goes Back To The Basics



Just how retro is the 2015 Yamaha SR400?

For one thing, you can only kickstart ┬áthe bike! That’s right, no electric start on this beast and Yamaha designed it this way to honor “classic” bikes.

The SR400 weighs 384 pounds, consists of a low seat and skinny frame, and utilizes a very traditional, air-cooled, two-valve, SOHC single.

Yamaha believes in the power of simplicity combined with an old school feel and has priced the SR400 at an affordable $5,990.

I’m on board for an inexpensive, lightweight motorcycle that pays tribute to the design and functionality of bikes from the past.
