    Default Any Super4 riders move on to the new CB400X/R ? - Share you thoughts



    Thinking of moving on to a class 2A bike and the choice is pretty clear , either a CB400SF or the new 400X.
    I know the CB400SF is the last of its kind, 4 cylinder, glorious engine note, good top end power, almost like a naked CBR400RR.
    The 400X is milder, but torquey, quiet, good fuel economy and looks great with a box.
    Frankly, I'm split !

    Any riders who rode both before ? Could you share your thoughts on these beautiful machines and which did you prefer.

    Hi Verna,

    I used to ride an 08 Revo before changing to a 400X 3 mths and has since rode around 4000km.
    All i can say is dont expect 400X to be like an S4 despite both being 400cc machines, the similarities end there.

    S4 are quick especially when we are talking about pulling away more so with the addition of the VTEC.
    A great all rounder that needs no explaination. Bullet proof engine but for the electronics wise not very bulletproof.
    Occasional hiccups of the ECU and rectifier (my bike, cant say for the rest)


    400X is surprisingly agile, power delivery is extremely linear. Yes there is powerband at about 5k rpm but cant really take off.
    Maintenance is slightly cheaper compared to the S4 - parallel twin vs inline 4.
    Fuel consumption is slightly better on the 400X. im getting 30km/l on most trips - expressway ridings at peak hours, heavy loads and dont really go on fuel saving rides. Sitting position is more upright and it feels more balanced than a S4.


    Some of my personal views since changing my bike. hope this helps.

    Glad to be of help.
    Do add SG400X on FB to know more about us.

    And if you guys do get the 400X, head down to Belwin Motors.
    One stop shop for 400X accessories.

    In fact im getting at least 33km/l now. No idea why.. I added more weight to the bike with so much poison around.
    My Revo when it was stock i was hitting around 25km/l
    Even when changed to aftermarket GPR exhaust its hitting 23km/l.

    Thats the stupidity of the system, it does sometimes make you wonder who is the DumbF*** who went to bid that high, gotta say the high bidders are pretty much selfish, "whole world can die, all that matter is that I do not die." mindset.
