2015 Yamaha SR400Don’t let the model year on the “newest” Yamaha fool you; there’s nothing modern about this motorcycle. Power comes from a 399cc air-cooled single cylinder engine that requires a kick to get it going. That’s right, there’s no electric start at all (though it is fuel injected). With a fully fuelled weight of only 384 pounds, the SR400 should be highly maneuverable and a joy to ride. The bike will arrive in dealerships in May and retail for $5,990.
