You may recall that production of the SR400 ceased in 2017, to allow Yamaha Japan to re-engineer the bike to conform to new motorcycle exhaust gas regulations.
Well, after a 12 month hiatus, Yamaha has announced that production of the SR400 will recommence in 2018! The new model will be released in Japan on November 22 in two colour schemes: Yamaha Black (classic!), and Greyish Metallic Blue. In addition, a special 40th Anniversary Edition (in Dark Orange Metallic Brown) will also be released, limited to 500 units.
Features of the new SR400 include:
- “Accuracy improvement of O2 feedback control realising excellent environmental performance and fuel economy”
- “Adoption of a canister to reduce the discharge of evaporated gasoline to the outside air”
- “A new muffler with improved bass and crispness”
It is currently unknown when the 2018 model will be available in Australia.
