I guess people get spoiled with choice and also market matters. Back in my home country we were and still riding CBR250RR not as collectable or track but usual sportbike. Just like VFR400RR or any other grey imports. I think it is all down to market - you might have noticed I am on "other side of the pond" - here CBR250RR is blast to ride, but not available.
I just do not get why this new Honda called CBR-R. Perhaps marketing trick.
