1995 Honda RVF400
The latest model of V-Four 400cc in Japan. It's a hot, hot bike! It looks just
like RVF750 (RC45) except the headlights are smaller and shaped more like the Factory RVF Suzuka 8-hour
Endurance bike. Fully adjustable upside down forks are featured even though the CBR400RR still sports
conventional forks. The "claimed" max horse power and torque are reduced due to a notice from department of
traffic in Japan*. Finally switched wheels from the RC30 like 17" front 18" rear to the now standard 17" at both
ends. Like the VFR400R(NC30), the RVF400(NC35) is known for great handling and turning quicker than other
400s. It sports the latest Nissin 4 piston calipers (black colored). Graphics are just like the RC45 - mostly red and
white with some purple and black on the fairing sides. Black number plates and wheels round out the look.
*NOTE: Japanese companies have had sort of a "Gentlemen's agreement with each other and the Government to
"limit" the maximum horse power per given engine size. For example, All the listings for 750cc bikes show 77 hp.
This is for a standard GSXR and the GSXR-SP, the YZFR and YZF-SP, The ZXR750 and the ZXR750R and
the NR and the RC45. The 400s are held to the 59hp (now 53) barrier weather you are talking VFR/RVF,
CBR-RR, NSR, GSXR, RGV, TZR YZF etc. It seems kind of funny that they ALL make Exactically the same
max hp. Of course Torque values would be different at least between 2-stroke and 4-stroke models.
