Back from the racetrack, and let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be seen holding such a stunning gem? Additionally, this motorcycle has a single-cylinder, 400cc, four-stroke engine with electronic fuel injection and anti-lock brakes. It fully complies with the stringent Euro4 requirements! Candy Red, Chickened Flag Black, and Silverstone Silver are the colors that are offered. With the brand-new Mash TT40 Cafe Racer, relive the past.
What Are the Engine Features of Mash TT40?
The 399cc air-cooled four-valve single that powers the TT40 café racer is based on the Honda XBR500 from the 1980s, so if the engine looks familiar, that’s because it also powers the roadster. Although it is currently manufactured by Shineray of China, this smaller version still has fuel injection and, aside from that, is very similar to what Honda offered thirty or so years ago. It has a light tuning those results in 27.6bhp at 7000 rpm and 22ftlb at 5500 rpm.
The rest of the specification retains the throwback concept, and that bikini fairing makes a Norton Commando racer seem more likely (or the early 1970s in general). So, a straightforward tubular steel frame with dual shocks is used to install the motor. The gearbox only has five speeds, and the forks forgo multi-adjustment and USD sophistication. Additional throwback features include spoked alloy wheels, a Monza filler cap, and a ribbed seat with a color-coordinated hump.

Chassis And Suspension
This motorcycle has low bars and matching rear set footrests, much like any other motorcycle that claims to be a cafe racer. Even though it’s quite devoted, an afternoon ride won’t be uncomfortable. Although the TT40’s 27.6 horsepower may not sound impressive, it weighs only 151 kg dry and has somewhat different specifications than a normal roadster.
In the end, it turns out to be surprisingly speedy, pulling well from 2500rpm in all gears but the top, with a fruity 4-6000rpm midrange, and even likes to crank on to the limiter at roughly 8500 RPM (Mash claims a top speed of 95mph). It has subtle but noticeable vibes and sounds like a sporting single ought to.

The only adjustment for the suspension is the rear shock preload, but despite this, it is flexible and effectively dampens road noise. As required by Euro4, front and rear discs with a four-pot caliper and ABS provide stopping force. The anti-lock is only detectable during hard stops in the dry, and they are not connected. Unexpectedly, you have the option of turning it off.
It is most often known that the TT40 is manufactured in China. It appears to be well constructed, has respectable switchgear, nice chrome, and alloy, and uses stainless steel for the dual exhaust pipes. The package includes a two-year warranty with unlimited miles. It might not have the badge, but it has the appearance.
At the front, a 4-piston caliper and a 320mm diameter disc are used in the braking system. At the back, a 240mm disc and a 2-piston caliper are used. The 3.25/18 front and 130/80-18 rear tires are mounted on the 18-inch aluminum spoked wheels.
Since its release, the Mash Cafe Racer TT40’s cycling portion, which consists of the front fork with 41 mm bars and the rear double hydraulic shock absorbers, has drawn a lot of positive feedback. Proof of the French brand’s efforts in this area is a set that performs well overall and is road-proof in subpar condition.

What Is the Fuel Tank Capacity of Mash TT40?
The fuel tank capacity of Mash TT40 is 16 liters.
The Mash 400 has measurements of length-2130 x width-740 x height-1220 mm, a ground clearance of 160 mm, an empty scale weight of 156 kg, and a fuel tank with a 16-liter capacity. With an 800 mm seat height, it is suited for all users.
When you get on the TT40, it feels like a cafe racer, but Mash claims that the bike isn’t daunting because the riding posture isn’t too extreme, the seat is just 800mm from the ground, and it only weighs 151kg dry. Large pitons might not fit well between the rider and that nice-looking hump, while the seat itself is rather comfortable for one person. There is also no grab rail.
When it was first introduced in 2015, the Mash TT40 Cafe Racer received generally positive reviews. Its main opponent is the Royal Enfield Continental GT, a classic cafe racer with a similar design that is available at a comparable price.
Many motorcycles are sold by the French manufacturer Mash, which for three years in a row topped the sales of geared 125cc motorcycles in France. Early examples of bikes from mainland China had horrible build quality, hand grenade engines, and parts that would corrode in a matter of weeks. As a result, there is still a great deal of skepticism in the market.
But over the last five to seven years, things have changed significantly, and Chinese motorcycles are now competitive with South Korean, Indian, and certain Japanese models. The Mash team designs its motorcycles in France using Chinese motors and chassis that are frequently based on earlier Japanese models, which helps to ensure the engineering’s reliability.
