Yamaha RD400 (1976-80)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

The pin­na­cle of Yamaha’s race-de­vel­oped (hence the RD tag) air-cooled two-strokes. It was fast (105mph), way torquier than it should have been, and han­dled bet­ter than Suzuki and Kawasaki strokers (which wasn’t hard). Prices are de­servedly high, and restora­tion projects pop­u­lar.

What you’ll pay now £2000-£4000 But should you? Yes. In some as­pects it’s a bet­ter bike than the early RD350LC.
