|More Information on the Honda CBR400F/RR|
The Honda CBR400 was a Honda Motorcycle produced between 1983 and 1994 and classified as a sport bike.
First incarnation of the CBR400s came about in 1983 as the CBR400F as a naked. The following two years, it came as semi and fully faired as the F3 Endurance. 1986 saw the fully faired CBR400R NC23 Aero released. The Aero was superseded the following year by the CBR400RR NC23 Hurricane, which featured the Tri-Arm braced swing arm. The last of the CBR400s came in the form of the CBR400RR NC29 FireBlade, featuring the Gull-Arm swing arm with production ending in 1994. The NC23 Inline 4 DOHC Cam Gear Train engine was carried over.
The NC23 is often referred as the Tri-Arm and the NC29 as the Gull-Arm to distinguish between the two models.
The NC23 engine was also used in the Honda CB-1 NC27.
The CBR400F was launched in December 1983. The four-valves per cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC inline-four engine had a rotational-speed valve stop mechanism "REV" (a prototype of Honda's VTEC system) that changed from two valves into four valves at 9,500 rpm.
Configuration: inline-four engine
