A Vulcan 400 ?
Can't say I ever heard of one either.
Did you see it/take the pic, or find it on the web?

Here's another pic of a 2004. This one is a 399 cc v-twin. The one above looks more like an old Vulcan 500 to me.

Found the pic on the web, it belongs to an American stationed in Japan. It was purchased in Japan. She says it is a 400cc

There are 400cc Vulcans, but not in the U.S.
Japan and European models. Don't think they are made any more either.

Check out the VN400 Drifter in Norway!

From what I can tell, all the VN400's are v-twins. Of course, she might just not know exactly what it is. A guy here in town has a Vstar 650 and he told me it was a 750. I don't think they ever made a vstar 750.
