Saw a nice one of these on Sunday in S Essex being ridden by a tiny Oriental lady. Very nippy bike, seemed to keep up with the 5 or 6 big sports bikes she was with without too much trouble.
Good luck with your search. There used to be a shop in Croydon that specialised in 400s imported unofficialy from Japan, it had loads of them. Unfortunately it closed down some years ago - or maybe it just moved elsewhere?
Yeah I owned one in the past, I’ve been through loads of different bikes in the past 9 years - GSX1400 was the largest capacity I’ve owned, I had a bandit 1200 for a couple of years (12,000 miles in total) but by far the most reliable bike I owned was the CBR. I mainly want one to save on insurance, fuel and running costs + I’d like to retain the Honda reliability of gear driven cams. I will eventually modify it with up-to-date fairings and CBR6 engine swap.
The only style of bike I’ve yet to try is a big-bore supermoto (been on a 400) but as motorcycles are my only form of transport I need something a bit more practical!
