The New Honda CBR400R 2016 derives its design from the new CBR500R, which made its official debut at the 2015 AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. The exterior design of the sports model Honda CBR400R is equipped with a cowling with a high windproof effect. Along with the new model, each part will be matured and will be released on February 26th (Friday) 2016.

Although the 2016 CBR400R managed to maintain stability and driving comfort, its appearance looks sharper and more aggressive than before. The sharp look was created from a redesigned front fascia, and accentuated by an aggressively styled rear engine cover.

The Honda CBR400R has a new appearance that emphasizes the sense of speed, inheriting the DNA of the flagship model "CBR1000RR" of the CBR series, with the styling concept of "AGGRESSIVE SPEED SHAPE". Newly designed LED dual headlights and tail lamps with excellent visibility are used to create an advanced look, and the edgy character line from the front cowl slanted forward to the rear cowl flipped up gives it a unique shape. It was made.

This time, a duct is installed at the lower end of the windscreen to suppress turbulence around the rider's head while driving, improving comfort. In addition, the duct provided on the upper part of the headlight and the middle cowl realizes light handling by setting the air guide path.

Combined with all these elements, the new version of the CBR400R has also included a Moriwaki exhaust, adjustable rear foot pegs, Bridgestone Sportmax tires for better grip, a larger carved gas tank and new air intake pods. Honda claims that this new motorbike will be able to provide mass centralization with a recorded motor length of 2,080 mm, a width of 750 mm, and a height of 1,145 mm.

The new shape of the modified cross-section muffler has changed the internal structure etc. to improve the exhaust efficiency and centralize the mass, and realized a comfortable exhaust sound by amplifying the bass.

In addition, the front suspension is equipped with a preload adjuster that can be adjusted according to the rider's driving preferences. The newly designed fuel tank has a capacity expanded by 1L and uses a hinge-type cap that is convenient when refueling. Furthermore, we are trying to improve convenience by equipping it with a brake lever with a 5-step adjustment mechanism according to the size of the rider's hand.

The body color is set to three colors: loss white with a tricolor image, vivid Victory red, and fearless graphite black.

2016 Honda CBR400R (2BL-NC47) Features


The front view has an advanced and fearless impression by adopting a newly designed LED dual headlight with a sharp shape. In addition, by setting a character line that connects to the horizontally long slit at the top of the headlight and the LED position lamp, we created an aggressive look. Furthermore, in order to express a sporty feeling, the surface composition from the middle cowl to the side cover and the fuel tank has continuity to give it a flowing appearance. In addition, the sharp slits in the middle cowl and the character lines of each part create a sense of fearlessness and aggressiveness. The rear view has a sharp and light impression by adopting a newly designed LED tail lamp with a clear inner lens on the edgy rear cowl, and by adopting a deformed short muffler and a stylishly shaped rear fender stay.

Power unit

We have reduced the operating load of the gear change pedal and improved the operation feeling so that you can drive comfortably even in urban areas where there are many gear change operations. In addition, the internal structure of the muffler has been reduced to two chambers to shorten the overall length, which contributes to the concentration of mass and realizes a crisp exhaust sound that is typical of a two-cylinder engine.


A slit is set at the top of the headlights for light driving in windings where there are many turns of the car body. This guides the running wind into the front cowl, lowers the wind pressure on the front side of the front cowl, and suppresses the lift of the car body, realizing sporty handling. This time, a duct is set at the lower end of the windscreen to reduce the difference in wind pressure between the front and rear of the rider and suppress turbulence around the head. Improved driving comfort. In addition, two air guide paths are set in the middle cowl to contribute to light handling, and the running wind is guided to the vicinity of the air cleaner duct to smooth the flow of intake air, resulting in a sportier increase in engine rotation. I produced a feeling. By adding a preload adjustment mechanism to the front suspension, it is possible to drive in the rider's favorite vehicle posture according to the situation such as 1 person ride, 2 person ride, load capacity, etc. In addition, a fork cap with blue alumite treatment is used to create a luxurious feel around the steering wheel. In order to improve the sense of security in long-distance touring, we have newly designed a fuel tank with a capacity of 16L and extended the cruising range in combination with a fuel-efficient engine. In addition, by adopting a hinge structure type fuel cap, convenience when refueling with gasoline is improved. Equipped with a brake lever with a 5-step adjustment mechanism, it is possible to adjust the lever position to the rider's preference.
