I called Yamaha and as of right now it is not available in the US, WTF.

Customer service said you can send a written, old school letter, to the headquarters in Cyprus Ca. requesting for the SR400 to be brought to the US. Of course it would have to be a hefty pile of letters for it to profitable for Yamaha to do it.

So everybody on ADV start writing.

I'm amazed it isn't appearing in the states. Maybe it's planned for a later release

Good luck on that. We're not much on rational and reasonable over here. I'd wait for a supercharged liter bike with more expectations. Oh wait, Kawi just introduced one.

Suzuki has had some real success with the TU250, and their smallest Boulevard fills in in the cruiser class, but there's practically nothing here for a good road thumper.

I did that a couple of years ago with the Yamaha MT 03. Got back a form letter thanking me for my interest. Still not available in the U.S.

Honestly that looks like the perfect street bike for me. Timeless good looks, modern reliability, economical, fun and practical. I really hope it comes here!

One of the other SR400 threads offered up the address, so I will post it here as well:

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA
6555 Katella Avenue
Cypress, CA 90630



I know a few of us have written letters already for what it is worth (probably very little).

$8,300 for a 23 HP single?
In the States?

Won't sell enough to fill a container.

I've got to give it to Yamaha, I think they've got the best line up of bikes of any of the manufacturers. They've jumped on the "street cool" bandwagon as well. Nothing wrong with that at all.

I know it's not old school but it's in the spirit of it.

You yobs over there get stuff that we're unlikely to ever see in the States. Many of the 2014 offerings from all makes are fairly dull.

Yeah. What we really need here is another nearly two-liter cruiser that weighs the better part of a ton. And that's what we're likely to get, with great fanfare.
