Its name may sound like the Japanese answer to Nascar’s most famous race, but the Zumo 400 is actually more at home on two wheels than four.That's because, like TomTom's Rider and other Zumo units before it, the 400 is designed purely for bikers. From the glove-friendly controls to the waterproof casing and, ahem, speed camera warnings, every detail has been designed for our doughnut-spinning, wheelie-pulling, document-couriering friends.It comes packed with UK and Ireland maps and usual point of interest accoutrements. And, just in case any light-fingered car owners were thinking of 'borrowing' Zumo for a test drive, be aware that each unit is protected by a four digit PIN, lockable mount, and several large, hairy, and very mean-looking bikers.
