General Comments:

Very good moto, without problems. You can use the Honda CB-1 400cc in city and on highways. The top speed is 202 km/h (tested with GPS). The only problem is the air when you drive past 140 km/h.

I have had a lot of motos (XT600/1989, GSXR750/1990, KR1/1997, CM200/1985 and GP400/1986.

I will never sell this moto.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

My CBI 400cc?

It's a great bike! I have acquired this bike 3 years ago, second hand, but still it runs smoothly. Maintenance is also easy, and parts are still available (original ones). One problem though is the pricing! Hope that they can lower the price.

This bike will surely remain with me as long as parts are available for its restoration, even if I have a chance to get another bike, CBR1000RR!

To all those out there who have CB1 - 400cc! Enjoy it and GOD speed.

I love this bike. I got mine in 2005, and have been loving it almost every day. I would like it do go a bit faster than 115mph, but who really needs 100mph plus travel in America?

Hasn't stopped me from getting tickets at 90 plus mph. Almost went to jail.

Super reliable, as efficient as my Golf diesel on fuel, easy to ride; flick, turn and trick.

If you can find one, I recommend them highly!
