The old ones had also decomp and a window to show when piston is at tdc.
I don't know if the compression is lower then old one or not.

Sarcasm detected, but honestly, I'd never buy a bike without ABS, electric start, and perhaps tubeless tires.

Fuel injection should make it start right up easy, hot or cold.
Thank you, but no electric start, no windshield, no rubber mounted motor, no shaft drive, no abs, no radiators, otherwise we just get a 500 pound 400cc bike.
A 19 inch wheel scrambler model would be VERY nice.....but keep the low exhaust, thanks.

Absolutely!
Either this, or a MG V7, or KTM duke 390
But i gotta say that I lean heavily towards the SR400
I sure hope Yamaha USA decides to bring it here!

Actually it's 384 lbs exactly with oil and a full tank of gas. Rounding up 116 lbs was a bit much, even for internet "facts" no?

Or did you mean to say WITH all those listed options it would be a 500lb 400cc machine? I am confused.

Eh?

Lovely! I'd buy this bike even though Yamaha UK list the price at 5199
It reminds me of my youth - bikes were proper bikes; no ABS bollocks, no fairing, no radiator, no outlandish BHP figures and you had to work it hard to access each and every one of those 25ish horses...
Nostalgia, I love it,

I doubt that it will be of much value, but it has been mentioned in a couple of other threads that Yamaha will consider actual snail-mail letters requesting the SR400 in the USA. I decided since all it was costing me was a few minutes at the keyboard and an envelope/stamp I would give it a shot (I REALLY want one of these)

If anyone else feels so inclined, here is the address I was provided:

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
6555 Katella Avenue
Cypress, CA 90630

The official word is the project is a no go for the US market in 2014, but if people still keep on them maybe they will try to put it in the line for 2015.

Honestly that looks like the perfect street bike for me. Timeless good looks, modern reliability, economical, fun and practical. I really hope it comes here!
