Now regarded as a 1970s classic, the Honda CB400F appeared in 1974. Described as ‘the poor boy’s musclebike’, it offered a four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine in a 250-sized package and performed better than many 500s. With a stylish four-into-one exhaust, six gears and rear-set footrests, it was every boy-racer’s dream and a huge commercial success. Comparing it to the opposition, Bike magazine reckoned the CB400 ‘represents a brilliantly engineered concept. It retains its appeal on several fronts: it’s a four-stroke, and an awful lot of people are biased towards four-strokes; it’s as quick as the two-strokes, yet on average road use will give considerably better fuel consumption; its handling is noticeably better than the two-strokes; and who can dispute that it’s easily the best sounding 400?’
