1978 Yamaha RD400

1978 marks the second to last year of sales for Yamaha's air-cooled two-stroke motorcycles in the U.S. Evolving from the ever-popular RD350, the RD400 was smoother running machine. Where the RD350 felt more like a race-bike with headlights, the RD400 felt more like a manageable street bike. The 350s and the later RD400 Daytona Special may have received the majority of the hype, the 1976-1978 RD400s were really the most enjoyable day-to-day riders. 

This particular year was the last of the RD400s (before the Daytona Special in 1979) and also the only year (in the U.S) to receive the tail cowling with this body-style.

This bike has been kept in very good condition and is ready to ride. Come by the shop to check it out in person.
