cbr 400 na bilhin mo yan ang nanalo sa petron econo run endurance last year.
Sorry if this thread exist, but really I cannot find anything referring to my question(s):
What is the lineup of the 400cc bikes available, which is the cheapest and which is the mid-end in terms of pricing? Is there any, like a few more thousand pesos, you get the next higher displacement, what is it?
I was thinking if I would be given the chance to buy a motorcycle again, for it to be at least 400cc so it can be used in expressways. Is it true SLEX bans all 2-wheels? How about Coastal Road (Manila-Cavite Expressway), do they have restriction on motorcycles?
Lastly, I have been informed before that for normal underbone motorcycles (averaging 100cc), the fuel efficient speeds is at 40-60kph, so how about the 400cc bikes?
Maraming salamat for all the answers

buy a CBR400 or RVF. Mas gwapo compared to other 90's model.
highly respected ang mga engine design, performance at usage nyan.
I'm planning to buy a Honda bros 400 next year. A v-twin sportbike for fuel economy and a pro arm for cornering.
TS go for Bandit 400 its a naked standard bike. much sportier look than Super 4. more tourque than PB1 Superfour. IMO
ride free... live free... every ride is a gift.
I really like the bandit a real hooligan bike, every time I see one my head really turns with awe, there are romurs about carb issues which makes me thik twice

sorry for my ignorance ano yung RVF?
Nasa Freeways Ban pala mga kasagutan sa tanong ko kung saang expressway bawal ang below 400cc, sa lahat pala. I was searching on the wrong thread sorry po.
Anyway, let me know nalang din ng other usual 400cc choices. Napansin ko kasi sa pricing ng mga 400cc and above (lalo na siguro especially pag bnew), eh mas magiging simple ang paggamit sa expressways kung naka-cage nalang (yung mga cheaps or 2nd hand), kasi magpapantay din ang presyo eh.
My second choice is a Honda Super Four.
THird choice Bandit 400
IF you have a need for speed, VFR NC30 or RVF NC35 will suffice your need for speed !
400 cc displacement bikes fuel consumption is from 15 - 25 km/liter - depends on your riding style and bikes condition and what kind of bike.
Underbones 100 cc to 150cc fuel consumption is around 35 - 50 km/liter.
Hope this helps though that was just a rough estimate re your above query from my own perspective Ride safe !

hey OLDTIMER84 thank you for the info. so the mileage then seems just like economy cars (16 km/L average) and so is the price. its only the freedom that is the difference of big bike vs an economy subcompact car. if only the below 400cc (with well disciplined and educated riders) are allowed on the highways then no point in looking for a car.
medyo di ko kasi type design ng honda steed, so seems honda super four nakikita ko on most posts. ok din bandit 400. kaya ko kaya sakyan mga yun, i just use a wave 100 now, but is valid on all expressways here, and majority meron pang motorcycle lane.
any 400cc bike is ok as long as it is in tip-top condition. i've seen a lot of these bikes left neglected and owners swear in high heavens that it consumes way too much fuel.
whatever bike you decide to get, always have extra funds and make sure that every issue mechanically is looked for and taken care of.
i'm sure you'll be surprised on how much it will cost you at first but it will pay for itself in the long run. no hassles when going out for a quick or long ride,
change oil, clean airfilters and the usual checking of tires and chains are the usual stuff that you need to check when going out, knowing that your future bike is in tip-top condition.
also, topping up of 95 octane fuel is always on your list on things to do. remember, a 100cc underbone bike consumes less fuel compared to a 400cc bike. just a rough estimate, just multiply by 4 your present fuel consumption and you'll get your rough estimate of a 400cc fuel consumption.
besides, when going for a higher displacement bike, the lesson i've learned is that forget fuel consumption and just enjoy the ride!!!
Mag CB400 super four ka na Sir! Subok nang matibay at matatag, subok na rin ng panahong lumipas. Mahahaaayyyy...parang adbertisment ng eveready battery ah
Honda Steed 400. Mas madali ang maintenance kesa inline 4. This is V-Twin.

May it be the Honda CBR400/RVF400 or the Super4 CB400, Honda would be the best choice if you're gonna get a 400 today (if you don't mind the price tag that is). The reason would be the advanced technology and parts availability. Though the ZXR400 Ninja or the Xanthus ZR400 would always make you something to think about.
Again, this is just me.
TS for me go for a Naked Bikes like Super 4 or Bandit 400 di naluluma yung style nya. unlike sa mga sportsbike (CBR 400,VFR 400 etc.) para napapag iwanan na ng Panahon kapag tinabi sa mga latest model ng mga Sportsbike. IMO
ayon sa wikipedia...
The RVF400R has a reputation for excellent reliability and good build quality, though not quite as high as its predecessor, the VFR400R.
sa abroad heto ang favorite nilang track bike, gaya ng sa UK....
even dito sa pinas, heto ang first choice....
if your taste in mc is a sports bike, this RVF and CBR is a classic.
lahat naman ng mga bikes nagbabago ang itsura, unless lang sa mga cruiser bikes.
sa mga standard bikes/naked bikes like Super Four at Bandit, sa mga modelong bike may mga pagbabago na silang ginagawa. sa frame, exhaust, headlight, instrument panel, etc... kaya nagbabago din ang kanilang itsura sa paglipas ng panahon.
They are becoming more of a streetfighter look nowadays.
And dahil sa pinaka popular ang 400cc ng honda abroad, you can still find some parts over the internet. Yun nga lang, may kamahalan. Well, halos kasing mahal din ng mga modern bikes, IMHO.

Honda Super four, Yamaha XJR, Kawasaki Zephyr. If you are into speed, try the following 400cc bikes: Kawasaki ZXR, Honda VFR or the later model RVF, Honda CB1, Kawasaki Xanthus. I am now selling a Suzuki Katana 600cc na mura lang... it may be a bit too big for a beginner though.
RIDE! RIDE! RIDE!
sir TS if your still looking for a big bike you might as well check out an xjr 400cc...yamaha reliabilty.. and if its big you want ,, hehehe yeah its bulky for a 400cc ....
if you want bigger displacement of just the same size a bike ,,,,
go for the xjr 750 if you could find one a bit old but it will force a smile behind your helmet...as you pull away from the 400s,,,,, well maybe except for the racing bikes.
i was offered an xjr 750 for 70k... i didnt take it coz it needed minor repairs... the new owner just spent 10k for the minor repair , and now its running,,, running really fast... sorry na OT ,,,, lets stick with 400s
sir also consider if you want to crouch down for a sports bike or be relaxed in a cruiser or standard bike.. the cb1 and bandits are a good compromise in budget, comforts and looks
sir bernz, are you still considering honda bros?
try mo tignan bike ko!
mga sir pa elp naman binebenta ko cbr 250rr s-frame newly restores nothing to fix newly painted na din and registered..bibili kc ako na sasakyan..thanks...
mga taga mcp po jan pa help baka may naghahanap..

HARUROOT CIVIC ACTION GROUPMaganda nga Motor mo.. May Helmet Ka ba?
Personally I'd go for an NC-30 VFR, NC35 RVF, NC 29 CBR or a ZXR400... These things are a hoot to ride on track or on twisty mountain passes...
But if you are of the more standard type of person Id go for the Honda CB-1, Kawasaki Xanthus or Suzuki Bandit...
The Super Four would also be a great pick just because of the fact that it is one of the easiest bikes to live with but for me it just lacks character and all out badassness... just my two cents though...
