Honda NS400R

Honda NS400R

Hondas V3 400cc 1985 NS400R was launched to supply demand for road bikes that looked like the 500 track bikes piloted by Freddie Spencer who won the 1983 world championship. ‘Some say’ Honda did not make a ‘500’ due to negative press about the RD500 & RG500 being too fast. They wanted to prevent an ‘arms race’ between manufacturers.

The NS400R took on & was almost as fast as the 500’s while 100cc & a cylinder less. The NS400R is now a ‘cult’ bike. Rothmans & Freddie Spencer colours look great & big bore conversions to 475cc are available, still handles & stops better than some new bikes. Very high build quality ensure the NS400R’s position as a firm favourite.
