2019 Genuine Motorcycles G400
2019 Genuine G400 – Black
Genuine hit the mark with their debut venture into full fledge motorcycles with this, the G400. A true modern classic the G400 takes its design and styling cues from 70’s sports standards ala the Yamaha 400 or CB400, with a tubular steel frame, mock oil tank and side covers concealing the battery and airboxes, an attractive teardrop tank with knee pads, a mostly-flat seat (even if a bit too soft), mid height bars with vintage mirrors, and is [in our opinion] ripe for a lightweight scrambler build.
The 400cc single is a Honda design used mainly in their 4-stroke dirt bikes in the late 90’s and early 00’s. It has been revamped with a 4-valve head, twin header pipe exhaust, and fuel injection. In this configuration, it makes about 30hp. Weighing in at just 350lbs it is a well-rouneded bike with surprising responsiveness and a rev-happy power band. The transmission is a 5-speed standard shift pattern. The operation of the clutch is easy and forgiving. Twist the throttle and rev the engine to 10,000 rpm for a flat torque response.
Handling the bike feels new yet somehow hauntingly familiar, like a visitation from a past-self who taps you on the shoulder and says, “Hey, remember when we used to ride for fun?” Whether it’s spirited riding around the city or burying the rev counter on twisty back roads the G400 delivers again and again. The four-valve head allows for a lot of breathing room and the electronic fuel injection keeps the fuel flowing with precision, never missing a beat. The factory Kenda Cruiser S/T tires are surprisingly grippy, wrapped around 19″ front and 18″ rear spoked wheels. With a low curb weight and 31″ seat height it’s a great option for riders of all levels and sizes.
