2005/2006 XR400R Still being produced??

Recommended Posts

I know that the XR400 is no longer being produced for the US market. It may be available overseas. I know that you can pick up a brand new CR500 with headlights, big stator and blinkers while abroad.

Does anybody know someone in a foreign country that can get a new XR400?

Sometimes being in the US market sucks!

No as far as i know there done completely except for the 650's, which by the way i reckon is one of the dumbest decisions ever made in motorcycling/marketing, they would have made a killing of XRs for years to come, now the TTRs and DR-Zs get more marketshare. :banghead: :banghead:

No. The Honda production line for XR400's ceased in March of 2005.

That being said, there are lots of them left in the world, but I understand that Australia got the majority of the last ones.

The most ironic part is Honda's advertisements. They show a family out for a day of trail riding, the dad is riding a CRF230. I think calling any air cooled bike a CRF is a joke, and since most dads are 200 pounds or more I don't think a 230 is going to get it done.

Especially if Dad knows how to ride. Maybe he is just letting the kids feel good by passing him. I'll have no problem passing him on my 400. :banghead: Honda lost my respect. Next bike will be a KTM, when ever I decide that the XR just doesn't cut it anymore. May be awhile though. :banghead:

Even though the XR's have been dissapearing here in the US and other countries since 2002 (when the CRF's were introduced), Japan was still advertising them in updated versions that we've never seen here in the US and thyey're in dual sport & super moto trim! We don't even have a XR230 here in the US. It's called a CRF230, but Japan is using the XR designation on this bike (weird, huh?). We get some cool stuff here in the US, but there's plenty of trick things in other countries that most of us will never see or hear about. Check out the bikes in these links directly from Honda to see what's going on in their dual sport & super moto world. I wish we had them available here. I don't know about their availability, but the links are fairly current.

Thanks for the links qadsan.

That XR400 Motard has inverted forks!!! I like the black engine and the forward positioned seat. It looks like an A-Loop seat kit.
