First incarnation of the CBR400s came about in 1983 as the CBR400F as a naked. The following two years, it came as semi and fully faired as the F3 Endurance. 1986 saw the fully faired CBR400R Aero released featuring the Tri-Arm braced swing-arm. The Aero was superseded the following year by the CBR400RR NC23 Hurricane and the Tri-Arm was carried over. The NC23 also known as the Hurricane. The last of the CBR400s came in the form of the CBR400RR NC29 Fireblade with the Gull-Arm swing arm with production ending in 1994. The NC23 engine followed over.

The NC23 is often referred as the Tri-Arm and the NC29 as the Gull-Arm to distinguish between the two models.

The NC23 engine was used in the Honda CB-1 NC27.
