A Japanese domestic market model, the GSR400, is available to selected countries. With the same exact dimensions as the GSR600, the only difference was the engine capacity (399 cc as opposed to 599 cc), a smaller exhaust outlet, smaller RPM range and a useful plastic protective cover on the left side of the engine. The bike appealed to the Japanese market as well as selected Asian markets where 400 cc bikes are popular due to riding license classifications as well as road-usability and practicality. A great bike to ride in Japan.

It is our goal at Bike Rentals Japan to give the customer total satisfaction.
On arrival at our rental shop you will be greeted by one of us who will take any outstanding details that were not confirmed with the online booking and finalise the contract to get you on the bike as soon as possible. At this stage we will confirm that you have viewed the safe riding in Japan video, fit you up with any gear that you may need, go over the bike to check off any prior damage and show you how to use the bike’s specific functions or controls as well as go over the standard equipment supplied. If you have booked a self guided tour and we haven’t supplied the route information previously then we will upload that to your smart phone at this time. We will also answer any questions you may have about the terms and conditions, the bike or your chosen tour route. Bike Rental Japan’s emergency numbers will also be supplied and confirmed and then you are free to get going on your adventure. This process can take as little as 10 minutes, however with a larger amount of outstanding details to be taken, gear fitment and adjustment, plus tour upload and explanations this can take much longer so please be prepared for that.
On return of the bike, everyone has a different experience here so we would love to listen to your adventure stories! We then give the bike a final inspection and if everything is fine you are freeto leave. Depending on how you got to our shop, the train station is only minutes away so youcan head on or return to Osaka with some of the best memories of a lifetime!

For our customer’s convenience. Essential for highway travel in Japan, you can pay cash but withgloves etc this is a huge holdup compared to just riding through the toll gates.
Please note ETC (Electronic Highway Toll Collection) card rental.
Although we hope you stay off the highways and enjoy the back roads as much as possible it is sometimes necessary to use highways to make up time so most of our bikes are equipped with an ETC machine. ETC cards are available to rent if required at a rate of 1000 for the rental period. Accumulated tolls will be charged to the customer’s registered credit card at a later date when we receive the bill plus a 4% credit card processing fee. ETC cards work like credit cards and are linked to our shop’s credit card so are limited in number and may not be available, so we urge you to pay cash on the highways at the GREEN toll gates. Please select ETC card rental on the “Accessories” section of the booking form.
