Used Yamaha Rd400 Dx for sale in Sheffield

About This Bike


An outstanding Yamaha RD400 DX. Stunning restoration including new paint, powder coated frame and new chrome.

Standard exhausts are perfect. These bikes are soaring in value and this is the very desirable white with red speed block model. Beautiful.

Every now and then popular music aptly reflects a cultural phenomenon, and the soundtrack of early punk music could hardly have suited the launch of Yamaha's RD400 any better than it did. The year was 1976 and the kids were bored with slushy Abba songs on the radio. Enter the gutsy, raw, spit-in-yer-face RD400, the perfect antidote to such boredom.

The two-stroke parallel twin was a real punk and, contrary to popular belief, a whole lot more than a modified RD350. With 40bhp and a top speed of 106mph, the RD was launched to capitalise on the success of the RD350 but was a totally new machine. Rather than being over-bored, the 400 had its stroke increased needing new crankcases which required the factory to re-tool in order to produce it.

The new machine also featured a rubber mounted engine to reduce vibration as well as new wheels and brakes. The engine was also moved forward in a bid to reduce the bike's tendency to wheelie but, happily, that plan failed. Long live the two stroke power wheelie!
