The Yamaha FZR 400 was a sports motorcycle manufactured by Yamaha from 1987 as a replacement for the Yamaha FZ 400R and continued production until 1994 when production ended. In addition, until 1994, the bike was constantly updated every year.

All FZR 400 models were powered by 399cc naturally aspirated, carburated, and liquid-cooled engines. The power units were transversally mounted in an aluminum perimeter box-section-type Deltabox frame, which was quite a unique layout at the time.

The 1984 Yamaha FZR 400 had its thrust from a 399cc four-stroke liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine mounted underneath its full fairing, boasting 59 hp with a peak force at 12,000 rpm and 37 Nm (27 lb-ft) torque at 10,000 rpm.

The engine was bolted to a six-speed manual transmission with a wet multi-plate clutch, sending the power to the rear wheel through a final chain drive, pushing the motorcycle to a top speed of 198 kph (123 mph).

From top speed to a complete halt, the bike relied on a pair of 282 mm brake discs tied to dual-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 210 mm disc coupled to a two-piston caliper on the rear wheel.

The bike was built around an aluminum Deltabox frame with a telescopic fork on the front and an aluminum swingarm with a single shock absorber on the rear, delivering optimum suspension performance and handling.
