2011 Honda CBR250R first pictures

Honda’s new CBR250R will go head-to-head with the Kawasaki Ninja 250R in 2011, these pictures released today reveal. The all-new single cylinder CBR250R makes 26bhp from the new liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-valve single cylinder engine, and weighs 162kg fully-fuelled and ready to ride, compared to the Ninja 250R’s claimed figures of 32.2bhp and 169kg.

I was in your position 4 years ago. I had a zzr250 (same engine as the Ninja 250 but higher tune) for a year which was ok for £1,200 (Only 5,500 miles from brand new). But the SV650 I bought whilst in the second year of my restriction was sooooooooooo much better. Plus it cost £3,400 with 700 miles on the clock. - The actual thought of paying £4,000 for a crap 250 with shite tyres and no brakes sounds like madness.

I would suggest you buy a proper bike like a sv650s, Kwack 640 etc and get it restricted. The insurance may even be the same but at least that way you will have a 'proper' bike. Depreciation will be alot less aswell.

All in my opinion of course:)

I use the bike for commuting and i do about 7-8000 miles a year, what's the mpg like on a restricted 600? I'm getting about 98mpg (thrashing it) on my cbr125r... might think about a zzr250

I'm doing my A2 test soon, & would have considered a CBR250R (I'm on a CBR125R at the moment) if they had just made it up to the performance of the Ninja 250R. I don't understand why they made it so clearly lacking in power next to their biggest rival for this market. I'm still undecided whether to get a 2nd hand Ninja 250 or get a bigger bike restricted; because as a bigger bike would mean I have a 'proper' bike & only have to get it de-restricted instead of a new bike, it also means I would have a big bike weight with small bike power. Hmm...

26bhp, that's about the same claimed power that my knock-about 1980 CB250RSA turns out, now THAT'S what I call progress.

seems a bit pointless to me, a 4 stroke 250 is going to teach nothing to riders coming up from a 125. thats the point of a cbr, to be sporty... just get a second hand 600

pointless,  its a mini moto vfr 1200,  thought cbr was sports , c'mon honda style it like a baby blade , and it would sell in the hundreds,  make it as exciting as the nc30 range , or as sporty as the rs250 when that was out

Why the Single?

The VTR250 has a four stroke V-Twin kicking out 32.1bhp, why not use the same engine? I've ridden the 250 and its a cracking little bike, the single cylinder seems a bit cheap in a bike like this.
