Hello Honda!

I’ve been holding out my purchase for a larger bike since I’ve gotten my Class 2A (201cc to 400cc) license in January this year. Well, the initial plan was to wait it out for my Class 2 (>400cc) license before I made the jump up.

However, an impending trip to Thailand with a group of riding friends reignited my itch for a larger capacity touring motorcycle. While I’m pretty happy with the Pulsar, it sometimes just struggles to keep up on the excellent Malaysian North-South highway (NSHW) for longer journeys. So that led me to scouting the local online ads for something larger.

…and I ended up with this! A 2014 Honda CB400X ABS at a really good price.

A Carousell seller listed his May 2014-registered Honda CB400X ABS for sale as he is now a proud father of a newborn and have moved on to driving instead of riding. It was priced to sell, and had everything I wanted – a 400cc parallel twin punching out 46bhp (twice as much power as the Pulsar 200NS at 23.5bhp), Honda’s legendary reliability, a fuel-sipping frugal engine (25-30kmpl?), and ABS, all at a reasonably great price.

Simply put – it was just too difficult for me to resist! And before I knew it, I found myself a new touring partner. =)


Oh, in case you’re wondering – YES! My well-loved Pulsar is up for sale!
