The SR lives on
In this issue you’ll find our feature story on the venerable Yamaha SR500, conceived in the ‘seventies and, in SR400 form at least, still going strong. The current SR400 has a RRP of $8099 and comes in a Retro Green and Onyx décor as well as black. The SR400 retains the traditional kick-starter but sports modern electronic fuel injection. Yamaha-Motor Australia has built a number of very novel project bikes using the versatile SR400, including a dirt-tracker that sees regular service at Sydney’s Nepean Raceway. Surely one of the most versatile motorcycles ever conceived.
