Post-Sale Update: The blue example is still available on ADVRider, but the red model sold for $3,500 after 42 bids on eBay.

More of an evolution rather than a revolution, the Honda CB400F has one of the most distinctive exhaust systems ever produced – known by some as the “waterfall pipes”. Though it wasn’t as fast as its competition, this little four cylinder was smoother, quieter, and gave better gas mileage.

Honda CB400F - Front Right

Featuring a relatively rare six-speed transmission, the CB400F was styled somewhat like a cafe racer and had an engine that produced 37 horsepower. Weighing just over 400 pounds, a rider could knock off the quarter mile in about 14.1 seconds. It’s a basic, classic bike that would be just fine serving as a lovely daily rider, even almost at the age of 30.

This specific Honda CB400F has just under 9,000 miles and looks to be in great shape. The only real flaws are a tiny dent in the front fender and minor scratches on the tank.
