2015 Yamaha SR 400
Saw this over on Motorcycle Daily. Nice looking bike that I'm certain will be the basis for a few Cafe Racers. I like it just the way it is.

Very cool that they're bringing this in to the US, I was doubtful they would. Nothing like a lightweight thumper for backroad fun and cafe- ization.

That is not bad at all. I have a CB400 that I bought to get back into riding again last summer and around town it is great. It seems like old school is really making a comeback and it's spreading! What an exciting time to be returning to motorcycling!

Very cool ride! This would be perfect for my wife if it only had an electric starter.

Mine is also kick start only. I actually really like it! Makes it kind of feel like authentic motorcycling.(maybe I've just been away too longDodgy)
Not that this bike has diverted me from my plans for a 2014 CB1100(because it surely hasn't) but I find any new retro offering interesting. I wonder what the black thing right in front of the crankcase is?

The black thing, whatever it is, kind of ruins the lines doesn't it.

After looking at it, it seems to a charcoal canister. (edit)

Here's a couple other shots of the bike.... there's no 'canister' on this one. Nice looking bike...
There's an article on Cycle World.com.
