g400c...any guess who makes it?

Post by kmrcstintn »

happy for genuine to see the g400c is finally gone from status of apparition (like a ghost) to having an actual physical presence on U.S. soil; now my gears are turning...who manufactures it? there is an uncanny parallel to modern Yamaha SR400's (with the addition of an electric start)...the g400c even has a dry sump oil system with remote tank under the seat as shown in this video:

did anyone get the license plate number of the bus that just hit me?!?

Don't need to guess. The G400c is made by Shinray in China. Shinray also builds the very similar Mash line of motorcycles currently sold in Europe.

I propose that this topic be shifted to the fancy new G400 section of the forum.

I believe Shineray made the Honda CL400 (1998-2000) & Honda 400SS (2002-2008) I watched dozens of Youtube videos on these, there are hundreds of them. But none are in English, all Youtube videos of these are in Japanese or (I think) Russian.
