Welcome aboard
I'm not sure on the UK market back then. I was a parts manager in 1976 & 1977 across the pond in New Hampshire. Here in the states only Red, Blue and Yellow were available then.
Have you contacted David Silver Spares or his Museum on your question of color?

This UK article didn't mention White.

BTW the 400/4 is a blast to ride.

hi, no i have not contacted david silver spares, good call , iwill do that.
i have owned the bike since 1995, and have tried to change the colour on the registration document a few times to red, but always reterns as white, so since i rebuilt it a few years ago i have left it as white.
i was told the american market adopted one with a bikini type fairing around the headlight, with mag wheels calling it the honda hawk..

to me it appears odd to have a white model when all others as you say, are yellow, blue or red.

The cb400 hawk were 2 cylinder bikes.
