Friday bike

This week's is another bike my friend Pat told me about.
Mash 'Five Hundred' aka 'Roadster'

Despite its name, this is a 397cc 4 stroke single producing 27 bhp.

Very nice styling, similar to a Yamaha SR 400/500, with a bit of Triumph Bonneville thrown in. I really like the exhausts!
As far as I can make out, it's built in China possibly by Shinerey, and is similar in styling to bikes sold under the Sinnis banner. Engine looks like a Honda XR400 and is probably based on it.

In the UK they are available from f2motorcycles for £3895 = 4986 Euros = US$5904

In France from Mash Motors for 4190 Euros = £3273 = US$4962

And in this article in the US for US$5250 = £3463 = 4433 Euros

(Bear in mind that some of these are net price, some are 'on the road' price, and taxes vary from country to country, so the prices are just listed as a guide.)

  1. Very like the CB400ss which was a jap only bike, one I thought would be a great bike. Same engine as the xbr and I think a dominator engine would slot in? 650 anyone!
