2016 Model Honda 400X ABS is a crossover adventure style bigbike equipped with 4-stroke DOHC 4-valve in-line 2-cylinder 400cc engine.

Honda 400X is popular as a model that can be used in a wide range of applications from city driving to touring, equipped with an engine with smooth output characteristics from low/middle rotation range to high rotation range in a powerful crossover style that stirs the spirit of adventure. The exterior design of the 400X has been remodeled and renewed. This 2016 model was released on February 19th (Friday).

The 400X inherits the DNA of the flagship model VFR1200X crossover concept, which was the flagship model of the crossover style (at that time). It has been redesigned to follow the dynamic styling concept "FEEL THE ADVENTURE FORM" that raises the spirit of adventure. This was partly due to the adoption of miniaturized LEDs for the headlights. Also, for a more tourer-like feature, the screen, which can be adjusted in height in two steps, standard and high, was 100mm taller than the previous model before it could be switched. Newly designed headlights that use LEDs and LED tail lamps that incorporate a new clear inner lens and have excellent visibility. Furthermore, by adopting a large windscreen with a height extended by 100 mm, the windbreak effect has been greatly increased, and both comfortable driving performance and styling that creates a presence at high speeds have been achieved. The design of the front part has LED position lamps placed on the upper left and right ends of the headlights to create a fearless look. In addition, on the side of the car body, we adopted stripes with a tire pattern as a motif, which makes us imagine a sophisticated and powerful crossover style.

The front suspension is equipped with a preload adjuster that can be adjusted according to the usage conditions. In addition, the ride quality has been improved by changing the settings.
The fuel tank uses a hinge-type cap that is convenient when refueling. In addition, we are working to improve convenience by adopting a brake lever that can be adjusted in 5 steps according to the size and grip strength of the rider's hand. This is a model equipped with ABS.
In addition to Magna Red and Pearl Sunbeam White, three body colors are available: Matte Ballistic Black Metallic, which is solid and emphasizes the crossover style.

2016 Honda 400X Features


Following the styling concept of the high-end model of the crossover series, "FEEL THE ADVENTURE FORM", while maintaining the attractiveness of being lightweight, compact and easy to handle, with the power to stir up the adventurous spirit and the urban and sophisticated proportions. As a crossover model with an intermediate displacement, the style emphasizes a powerful image that stirs even more adventurous spirit. In the front part, LED position lamps are placed on the upper left and right of the newly designed LED headlights, creating a powerful image of 400X in a fearless style in addition to advancedness. In addition, the tail lamp is also reminiscent of the powerful image of 400X, and we have adopted an LED tail lamp that incorporates a clear inner lens that insists on advancedness and individuality.

Power unit

The operation load of the gear change pedal is reduced and operated while maintaining the characteristics of the water-cooled 4-stroke DOHC 4-valve in-line 2-cylinder 400cc engine, which has a reputation for smooth and easy-to-use output characteristics from low and medium revs to high revs. By improving the feeling, it is possible to drive comfortably even in urban areas where there are many gear changes.


For comfortable driving on the highway, the windscreen has been extended 100 mm upward, and the screen position can be selected from two, standard and high, to greatly improve windproof performance. In addition, by installing a duct at an appropriate position on the windscreen, the pressure difference between the front and back of the rider is reduced to ensure comfort, and by suppressing turbulence around the rider's head, it is caused by the running wind. The burden on the rider has been reduced.
By adding a preload adjustment mechanism to the front suspension, it is possible to ride in a riding posture that suits the rider's preference according to the situation such as 1 person riding, 2 people riding, and load capacity. In addition, a blue alumite-treated fork cap has been adopted to create a luxurious feel around the handlebars.
Equipped with a large capacity 17L fuel tank to secure a cruising range. In addition, a hinge structure type fuel cap is used to improve convenience when refueling with gasoline.
In addition, a brake lever with a 5-step adjustment mechanism has been adopted so that the lever position can be adjusted to the rider's preference.

Color variations

In addition to Magna Red and Pearl Sunbeam White with tire pattern stripes on the side of the car body to create a powerful image, three colors are available: Matt Ballistic Black Metallic, which is solid and emphasizes the crossover style.
