For sale Honda CBR400RR NC29 Gullarm Hi I’m selling this as it was for my ex-girlfriend to ride and is no longer needed.It was bought in April 2002 as a fresh import from Boxhill Motorcycles in Surrey. The bike had done 11,165 km or 6,938 miles when imported. Now it has only 12,969 km or 8,058 miles, so it has only done 1120 miles in the UK, all of them on dry roads in the summer. I doubt you’d have much luck in finding another one with mileage as low as this. This bike is a dream to ride, it’s so easy to handle which makes it an ideal first big sports bike and I’m told it is faster in the twisties than most of the larger engined bikes. The CBR400 is popular with shorter riders due to the relatively low seat height, making it suitable even for those around 5 feet tall.The Moriwaki exhaust can is not a race can, it is baffled and Japan road-legal (equivalent to European standards and has never failed MOT) but nevertheless it sounds absolutely superb. It’s like any standard factory can at tickover but when you go past 5000 RPM it howls like a race bike all the way to the 14,500 RPM redline.Current and former CBR400 owners have said that they can’t believe how few miles are on it and how tidy it is. Well it’s not quite in mint condition but it’s pretty damned good.On the right hand side there is a tiny scuff on the front edge of the exhaust can and the ‘CBR’ and ‘Direct Air Intake’ stickers have a minor scratch each, these can just about be seen in the first photo. There is also a small crack in the fairing just behind the front indicator which has been repaired, but it’s barely noticeable and you can’t even see it in the photos. These are tiny blemishes really, on a bike that is otherwise in excellent condition. Enough waffle, here’s the details and check out the pics: 1992, J regOne lady owner in the UKOnly 12930 km = 8034 milesAlways garaged in the UK (and probably all it’s life!)Brand new Bridgestone tyresGood brake pads with very little wearStainless steel brake discs (I’m guessing these are standard)Brand new gel battery Completely standard apart from:Enamel coated aftermarket 4 into 1 exhaust systemMoriwaki Mark II exhaust canDatatag and Datadot security markings and ID chips with all the paperworkPowerbronze light smoke tinted screen Sold withpare set of NGK spark plugsHaynes manual in mint condition12 months tax12 months MOT £2,200 ono If interested call or text me on 07929 963215, send a PM or reply to this thread.Strictly no canvassers!The bike is located in Devon.

Just curious, this is exactlt the same as my bike- can I ask what the number plate was? Sheer curiosity to see if it actually is the same one!!

I sold it in January 2011 to a lady in Plymouth called Kate .
She bought to it replace her identical, but very tired one which had something like 89,000 miles on it!
If it is the same bike, I hope you're treating it well and it has been reciprocating with trouble free biking

I've an 88 23rr with 4000 genuine KM from new.  Imported it myself.  prefer the 23 to the 29 but have 2 x 29's as well.#

Just love the 400's especially the 29 in that colour.  Have a project one to be finished like yours.

Good luck with the sale.
