Honda absolutely had bikes in this category.

CBR250R, 2011-present

They also had plenty if 175-250cc street-only twins:
1968 CB175 (not in the US)
1969 to 1973 CB175
1974 to 1976 CB200
250 Nighhawk (1987-2008)
CB250 1970's, smaller CC version of both the CB350 and CB360 -- outside the US
1988-1990 VTR250 (I have a 1990)
200?-present VTR250 (not in the US)

One could also argue that the 1968-1973 CL175 and 1974-1976 CL200 were street only, as the "Scramblers" were really just CB175 and CB200 street bikes with a high-mounted scrambler-styled exhaust (and other minor styling differences).

I only remember the KZ200 and the SRX 250, I think.

Honda had none? They gravitated toward twins for anything above 125cc.
Suzuki only had cruiser models, I think.

(Harley had the Italian two-strokes.)

Does that cover it?

Major bonus points for anyone if I'm forgetting something.
