XV400: Identifying model number and year

PostAuthor: Tash9401 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 6:01 am

Hello guys,
I recently discovered this forum after buying my '94 Virago XV400.
Could this possibly be the 535 model instead? How can I be sure of the exact year and model?

I have the following numbers:
2NT-056194
V0120359286
2NT00 399cm3

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers!
Tash

Welcome to the forum.

I cannot give you specific details, but you have a 400cc version of the 535. It was sold mainly in Japan, but also in a few other markets where insurance regulations and/or learner classes made the 535 unlikely to sell well.

2NT is the 1st three characters in an XV400 frame number


399cm3 ( engine displacement ) tells me it's an XV400

The color for a '94 XV400 would be New Blue Black and Deep Violet Metallic. Your avatar is too small to see the color except that is a dark color.
