2008 Schwinn Del Mar

2008 Schwinn Del Mar 400


Schwinn has been a name of quality and reliability for many decades now and their touring motorcycle, the 2008 Schwinn Del Mar 400, is no exception. It uses a beefy 400cc, single overhead cam shaft (SOHC), four-stroke engine to deliver approximately 20 horsepower and 21 lb-ft of torque. The engine is liquid-cooled to keep running temperatures to a minimum. Its fuel supply is delivered by a high quality carburetor to prevent flooding and increase fuel efficiency. The transmission is an automatic, continuously variable (CVT) design that ensures smooth shifting and quietly changes gears for a more comfortable ride.

The suspension uses a front telescopic fork and a rear single sided swing arm with a single shock absorber. The seat is made from high quality vinyl to prevent cracking and give the rider good back support. The large floor board area, perfectly positioned handlebars and wide grips keep the shoulders stress free and the back perfectly vertical. All these components combine to give maximum comfort for riding short distances on city street or conquering the long distance touring ride. The Del Mar 400 uses hydraulic calipers with a single disc on the front and rear wheel to keep the bike in total control for the rider.

The 2008 Schwinn Del Mar 400 is a great example of what a rider could want and need in a comfortable touring scooter with the power to get where you are going.
