The 250 has turned out to be brilliant for me. Just immediately, I prefer the sissy look of the 250s vfr styling, kind of short lived on that. I like the front blinkers on the 250, they have running lights as does the front light.

>>Engine details arenít out yet but it is being said that the bike would sport a larger version of the CBR250Rís single cylinder, fuel injected engine. Honda has put in a lot of time and efforts in developing this 300cc engine and our guess is that the motor would have 35PS of max power, with 29Nm of peak torque

The new 2014 Honda CBR300R boasts of a diamond frame with struss structure and is likely to also sport a new swingarm. The Honda CBR300R will be available with C-ABS.

I think the chassis looks the same as the CBR250R. At least in pictures.

Wonder if I could put these new plastics on my 2011 cbr250......

Mine are damaged from a low side a while back. And I think these look way better the current 250 style.

no 250'cc make a good inline four here's the MC22 20K RPM Screamer of a CBR 250RR, with Keihin flatslides and some tuning did if my memory serves me right a 114mph average speed lap on the Isle of Man TT



as much fun as a single can sometimes be it doesn't beat a bike you can just use the throttle as a scream switch the more you twist the more it goes, my VFR 400 will rev out to 14.5 K can;t imagine what a 20K revvy 250 would be like

It is thoughts like this that make me hunt through craigslist for a ninja 250 late at night. It can't rev to 20k, but... what can these days?





Damn.

I was kinda wondering if Honda would do this after Kawasaki brought out the Ninja 300. Of course a co-worker recently bought a 2012 CBR250 and is quite happy with it as it is. Although a little more power is usually welcome.
Good job Honda, keep up the good work!

Should be everything the 250 was and not as much of what the Ninja 300 has already, so what's the point? A real competition in this class would be awesome, lets see some real improvements, like adjustable suspension and great brakes. One upping the best bike in class would be nice, not shooting for almost as good.

absolutely lovely

this looks very promising for those of us with a taste for small to mid displacement singles

so does this:

Okay, now lets see ithe KTM 390 Duke, and something from the tuning fork camp!

This would be a great back-road/town/commuter bike. I prefer the single for lower speed, start-and-stop riding and I certainly prefer Honda quality, fit and finish, and engineering/details. I also understand gas mileage is better on the Honda than the Kawi. If it'll run 60-65 w/o straining, I'd take it over the multi-cylinder small displacement rides. I don't want any of the small bores for sustained highway speeds. Pick and choose, as always. Get what you want.
