The smallest Gixxer led a long and fruitful life of bringing young riders into the motorcycling fray, riding the wave of 400cc popularity that swelled, crested and broke in the 1990s. Like most Japanese four-stroke 400s, it had an aluminum frame, a screaming inline four that made around 60 horsepower and aped the looks of its bigger stablemate.
Despite all that, the little Gixxers were never as popular as their competitors, with reviewers bemoaning somewhat primitive chassis and a peaky engine, even by 400 standards.
But today, they are as eagerly sought after by collectors as any of the 400 sport bikes, in part because they are quite rare. The 1993 Suzuki GSXR400 here is a well cared-for, low-mile example that spent much of its life in the hands of a collector in Japan, before coming into the collection of our buddy Gary.
With the exception of some spots on the wheels and a little pitting here and there, this one looks much newer than even its scant 8,000 miles would suggest. The fairings show no cracks or blemishes, and it is titled and ready to ride.
