There are few motorcycles that can embody the character of the Honda 400s from the 90s. They were the perfect machines, for beginners as well as for experienced riders who wanted adequate, yet usable power. They came at a time when Honda’s drive to make well-engineered motorcycles was at its peak. Gear driven cams, single sided swingarms and glorious engines, specially the V4 that would surround the rider in a theatre of sound as the engine revolution climbs up to peak out at 14,000rpm. It was quite a similar story for Rhory, when he decided that he needed to upgrade to something sportier than the Honda DT125 back in the day. Since most of his friends were learning the art of motorcycles on 400cc machines, Rhory thought it would be apt to join them with a similarly spec’ed motorcycle.
