Honda Cbr 250R 2011

5,344 posts in this topic

I really like the 2010 cbr150 and 2010cbr1000 red/white/blue tricolor. will this be available on cbr250?

There is a tri-color for the 250. I saw a pic of it somewhere, but I've browsed so many sights, I couldn't begin to tell you where. But I do remember on the 250 they "switched" the red and blue colors around, and the gas tank is also blue instead of white. Same scheme, different pattern. Looks good.

cool, my GF is talking about replacing her airblade.

Airblade to a 250? That's a pretty big step up.

she s been riding Ninja 650R a couple of thou km, but its a bit heavy for her, and D-tracker 250 a bit to high seating

CBR250 seems perfect in size/weight, price is nice, and power should work for single 55kg

Ok, then that should be no problem. Mine used to ride "choppers" in the past, but now that she's in her early 50's, she's more "sedate". Bought her a new Air Blade a couple of years ago and she liked it. But now she has a new, fully customized Scoopy that she loves! She also loves my CBR tri-color, except for one thing: At only 148cm tall, her cute, sexy legs are just a wee bit too short to shift gears, but that's fine with me. haha.

Ahhhh, thanks, Hili. I knew I'd seen it somewhere, just couldn't remember where. Now, while it's on an European site, I would imagine that it could be ordered for here. Might cost a few extra baht, but.....

On mine, I'm seriously considering changing the front fender from blue to white, and sorta considering painting the whole thing white. I'll have to think on that one some more. lol

I've seen it promoted as the ideal beginners bike.

Nothing to a 250!

Depending on whom... sure. I'm recommending my cousin grab one here in Canada - he's 55, had never ridden and learned ok last summer in a couple of hours on my 450 Nighthawk.

I reckon the 250 will be a doddle for many beginners.

Although, I remember after doing my 360k run I sat on a new 150, and for sure it was lighter (step-through kinda light), but the seat also seemed lower than the 250. But I read the new 150 was higher than the old 150 and the 250.

I'm certainly not flat on both feet, but it's not tippy-toes. The bike is light and I can move it around with my feet fine (I'm 5'6).

Black/silver 250 sitting in Saphan Kwai dealership.

Think they were asking 110k last week.

Owner speaks fluent English, and a good guy all round.

So breaking in:

Get the engine close to running temp.

Spend 20-30 mins going through the gears - getting it up to the redline and letting the engine brake back down.

Let it sit and cool down a bit.

After 20 mins take it out and take it into the redline for a minute or two at a time and let the engine brake back down.

After 30 mins let it cool down a bit.

Then ride the ass off it racing style for 30 or so minutes.

Does this sound alright??

And just for the fun of it...

I just spent 40 hours from Chiangmai to Winnipeg. It's about -20 out, and clear night with everything covered in snow.

It's 4 in the morning, I have five layers of clothing on, and Kodiak boots (!!!).

I'm going for a walk, and I will dream about riding!

Glad people are finally getting bikes.

Sangchai Auto on Ngam Wong Wan Road in Bangkok will be selling at 110k on the road for non ABS. Annie speaks good English. They have a black one just arrived but said it's not for sale as it's a show model. Perhaps if you brought a pile of cash she might change her mind!

Wife just got a call from Honda Chumphon. They have just received their first cbr250, a red on, said they will have abs version in February. We are going to pop in shortly for a quick look.

Oh yes, the real news is the price here................ 96k :lol:

Ok, went to the showroom, bike had just left to be displayed in town somewhere. Spoke to the manageress who said the 96k quote from staff was wrong, actual price is 99k! Was in a hurry but could have left a deposit then at a definite sale price of 99k. Cheapest in the country to date?

Listed as 21.44.

A fair whack down from the ninja.

Torque: 14.49, at 7,200rpm, higher than the ninja's max of 12.70 at 11,000rpm.

By the graphs is certainly seems to kick in quicker than the ninja, then the ninja takes it in the top end.

At least that's my reading of it.

But I'm possibly wrong. :)

Guys testing fuel economy on the Thai forums are listing above 32+ kmpl cruising on the highway in the 100-120 kph range.

They say it's extremely fuel efficient. About 30 kmpl when cruising above that.

Probably coz it has no power.

Only joking. :)

I think those power numbers must be in kilowatts. that would give the CBR 28.7HP and the Ninja 34.9HP which is closer to the factory numbers.
