On a recent trip to Sydney I stuck my head in at Deus (as always) and grabbed a copy of their SR400 catalogue. I’ve snapped a few shots and posted them for you to drool over. Dues do sseveral “custom” set ups which you can order when you purchase your bike or you can of course buy a stock model and modify it yourself (which is always more fun!).

“The SR400, a paragon of simplicity, the perfect balance of power and timeless good looks. One cylinder, two valves and a purity of design that has kept this modern classic true since 1978. Deus Ex Machina…any god, any Machine”
