“Are the twins Boring?”

Written on: 06/04/2012 by WILT (1 review written)

I was told the CB twins were boring and when I got a 250N, I agreed it could be considered just a ride to work tug.None the worst for that in terms of reliability handling etc its up there with the best. But I consider the 400 to be underated.It gets its boring reputation I believe from the fact that it delivers its 43 BHP through a remarkably flat torque curve leading to the impression that it has no kick in the pants!. but look at the facts it develops 43 bhp from 400cc(Its faster than the… Read Full Review

“The 400N was too clumsy in the way it drove, the twin...”

Written on: 11/02/2010

The 400N was too clumsy in the way it drove, the twin discs would glaze and give the impression of inferior braking.

The C of G was high, making it unforgiving in corners, the front wheel felt as if it would slip and unseat the rider, not much chance of recovering, so it felt.

However!

Took mine to Brands Hatch & found it to be Chalk vs Cheese.

The brakes were fantastic once deglazed, the ponderous low-speed cornering became quite agile, TT100 tyres meant you could drift the bike under… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2012

amen to that, i had one as student and it put me off biking on inferior swallow tyres that went with a skidding front end. it felt altogether lifeless on ordinary roads, and heavy and the twin felt gutless and noisy and harsh (long fast drives left one with numb hands) and the lack of a fairing meant serious wind at anything above 60 mph. i also had a small suzuki a100, which was lovely

I bought my honda cb400, a "W" reg in 1982 and I'm still riding it! Just passed the 50,000 mile mark, it's got a slight oil leak and the cam chain rattles a bit but it still gets me from A to B.

Written on: 11/02/2009 by Graham Gottard (1 review written)

I got a Honda CB400n new back in 1979. a red one. I was astonished by its performance back then. after my 750 commando this was a breeze. Handling was good, predictable and safe. I used to commute on it every day. fuel consumption was pleasing. overall a light, manoeverable and easy to live with machine that did its job well. no racehorse, but a solid, and reliable commuter that woulf tour when asked to… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2007 by Erebus1197 (13 reviews written)

I bought this Honda CB400n last November (3 months ago at time of writing) from my sister in law, who had bought it for when she passed her test. She passed, and then decided the bike was just too heavy for her, so I bought it after I passed my test.

And I am sooo glad I did. This bike is a perfect machine for the A2 license holder (restricted for two years to less than 33BHP, or under 25Kw/H) as it is reliable (it's a Honda, of course it's reliable), economical (full tank will give me about… Read Full Review

Jonathan Kelly's Response to Erebus1197's Review

Written on: 02/02/2007

I rode on a Honda CB400n (Superdream) 400, and the performance was good! I touched 110mph on the motorway. It was very windy however. This bike is far better than the 250 version. It's light and flickable, but old fashioned in feel, as it is not a mono shock, so it will feel even more old fashioned if you have been riding a modern bike like a Hornet, and slow.

Written on: 08/05/2009

I found this review helpful because... I am considering buying one. I have an XV 750 SE at present but it is going to get too heavy for me soon and I like doing long trips, so something just over 100 lbs lighter that is reliable and does a reasonable mile to the gallon would be just the job!

The engine oil for your bike is 10/40 viscosity. It is best to change the oil filter as well.

Over all the old Honda CB400 Superdream are a smashing bike cheap to run and reliable. Performance for them isn't too bad at all quite torque and fast off the lights. I think so anyway, I would recommend the bike for anyone who needs a cheap reliable run around good handling and brakes too over all a smashing bike that must be tried… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2005 by pmiller056 (1 review written)

I used to own one of these Honda CB400n (Superdream) 400 Motorcycles until it expired of old age. Nothing great in terms of performance compared to todays bikes, but it works and works well. Starts first press of the button every morning without fail, even in the middle of winter.

Change the oil regularly (1200-1500 miles), oil filter every second oil change. I made the mistake of using a well known shop's own brand of motorcycle oil the engine was never the same since and probably helped the… Read Full Review

The Honda CB400n (Superdream) 400 is no speed freek but performance is fine for everyday on road stuff will cruise at 80mph no probs, good to overtake, and will keep up with other bike on your average day trip, but forget it if you are into flashy speed, because this motorcycle ain't no R1 Yam. Its reliable transport & for the odd trip across europe etc, only thing is the oil changes at 1800 miles… Read Full Review
