In Japan you can get a license up to 400cc or an unlimited license. Getting the unlimited one costs twice as much as getting the restricted one so a lot of people plump for the 400cc license. Which is why there are so many 400cc bikes in Japan and goes some way to explaining why they make such good ones. They come in every style from road-legal racers to choppers but what we have here is a truly elegant and simple classical beauty. A bit like Audrey Hepburn with twin shocks.

In the late sixties Honda developed the CB350 parallel twin and the CB750. In the seventies they came out with the now famous CB400 FOUR. It was a huge success selling in massive numbers just at a time when Japan as a culture and an economy was growing in strength and confidence. Move forward thirty years (during which time numerous evolutions of the CB family came into being) to 1998 and the release of the CL400 thumper. The following year introduced us to the CB400SS, a beautiful homage to the original FOUR. The lines are very similar but this, like the CL before, is a single – lightweight, simple and elegant. The CB400SS is smooth and understated. As something to look at, it ticks all the right boxes and as something to ride it doesn’t disappoint.

A genuine all-round road bike with classic lines and twin shocks, and this one in black and red is very smooth. There is some light corrosion on the front of the exhaust and the twin shocks and some signs of ageing on the engine but overall the condition is very nice.

She has only done 11,332 miles.
