Loved it!

I like it! And a rear fender eliminator would make it look even better.

I personally think that the pipe is still too big for the size of the bike.


GotMojo?: I sent you a pm. Thanks.

Me too! I kept thinking "hey, I should go have a sit on it, but there's probably a crowd of noobs lurking and dropping it....

then someone just barely caught it as I was walking up!

Never did get to sit on it, but it looks great and I overheard they have several sold units already on order, and another guy walked off with the salesman to go place another order.

I'm not buying anything soon but, yeah, these look pretty cool. Very crowded there on Saturday.

I'm dying to see what the real world mpg ends up being, since honda apparently still hasn't released the ratings lol.

On the back roads of Thailands North, two up, we got about 78 MPG. At 60 MPH, the engine is turning 6000 RPM's. Rented the Honda 150 CBR (fuel injected) a few days later, rode over rhe same roads & got 76 MPG. That engine is turning about 7000 RPM's at 60 MPH. Not sure if the 150 will be coming tp the USA. The only down side I found on the 250 CBR was that the suspension travel was very little to none !!! Would be alright if you are riding the roads in Europe, but if you are planning to ride the roads in third world places like Cambodia or Kalifornia, your ride will be very hard !!!

Honda online magazine PDF

this is off the hook... complete breakdown of the CB250 makes me drool, then I scroll down and see me last two bikes featured in a history of Honda naked bikes, the Nighthawk 750 and the 919... please excuse me, I think I need to be alone...

I am waiting for them to hit the floor so that I can see if it fits me. I am 6' and 225 so it might be a bit cramped. Did you go with the red or black?
