The SR lives on

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

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.
