What Is It?

The Honda CBR400 is a dedicated sports bike which is also known as the NC29 Gull-Arm. It's powered by a liquid cooled inline four 399 cc engine carried over from the NC23 Tri-Arm and achieves maximum power at 12,500 rpm. The engine is a stressed member of the frame and features gear driven cams.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 275 mm discs up front with four piston calipers
  • Rear 220 mm disc with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable 41 mm Showa fork
  • Rear Showa shock
  • 6 speed gearbox

The CBR400 picked up the FireBlade name in 1994 and was later simply called the Baby Blade due to similarity with the CBR900RR FireBlade.

The Gull-Arm name refers to the gull wing shape of the swingarm on one side, which aided ground clearance for the exhaust.
