I still prefer the looks of the old ZXR400s but...

That's what I was going to say too.

Too bad it's not a racing 400 instead of an econo bike.

Still could sell I guess, as an eco-bike.

Edit- even the article says, "Mechanically identical to the 650R with the exception of a smaller 399cc engine..."

and that it probably won't come here.

Maybe when gas gets sky high again we'll get 400's, and then I may want one.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

So they release pics of that turd in street trim but nothing for the 10? Cruel and unusual punishment says I.

If they are letting the 500R go, then this is a good trade-off.

Same approx. HP (and weight). Say what you will about the 500, but it made a perfect starter bike for someone learning to ride.
