Crosby adventure 400
« on: February 06, 2019, 05:22:53 pm »
So anyone knows the Crosby adventure 400, any details on it? See they have a special on at the moment.

From their website:

The Crosby Adventure 400 is equipped with a Tall Screen, 35l Pannier Boxes, Hand-Guards, Headlight Protector, Crash bar, Sump Guard even one of those cheeky little rails that run above the speedo to Mount a GPS.

It weights 151kg with no fluids. It also shares the “must have” beak that all serious adventure bikes benefit from.

The spec is suitably impressive: a Simple SOHC Air Cooled Fuel injected motor, 16L tank, mid-to-long travel fully adjustable suspension, Switchable ABS braking system, 21” / 18” wheels with serrated foot pegs. Simple where it needs to be, yet sophisticated in the details!

Well if they are reliable @ 27hp puts it in the same type class as the CRF250 and 450 so for the price and all the extras already on does not sound to bad?

Pat the owner of V Customs gave me a review to read after i was looking at it. The two test riders really gave it good reviews. To me it looks like a lekker commuter and light weekend plaything where the GS is to heavy.

Last month's Dirt & Trail magazine also did a test/review, and their opinion was that was a fun bike that represents good value for money.

Someone on the forum needs to get hold of one and give a decent test so that we will know if it will hold up to our conditions and then with more information they might get some sold .

In Europe it's known as the (Mash Adventure)and the motor is based on the old 70's 500 honda . Looks like it could be a nice bike for us older guys that dont want the weight.

For me riding a  crosby 400 i would rather buy a 2nd hand versys x300 and farkle and have spare change after some farkles. The 2nd hand price is also none existing on this bikes.
