About the Honda CBR400F Endurance
Racing that is done with a manufacturer's production machine, rather than one produced only for racing, is in a class by itself. In motorcycle racing this is called the Tourist Trophy (TT) race, and comprises only machines that were manufactured for street use. Almost every maker of motorcycles is now marketing vehicles that will fit into the TT-3 formula races, as it is very popular for beginning riders. The famous Honda Company released their CBR400F in 1983 for this exciting event and followed it in May of 1984 with half and under cowl versions and in August 1984 with the fully cowled Endurance Special Edition.
