I checked this bike out today by accident. I originally went to the dealership to check out a Kawasaki ER6N or a Yamaha FZ6R and ran into the CBR250. I am a beginner and I am having a heck of a time deciding between a 250 and a 600cc or better bike to begin on. The CBR gets excellent ratings for beginners, but I am worried about "outgrowing" it as many people have advised me. I am not a small woman so I am concerned about riding a "tiny" bike, but I also want to feel confident about being able to control the motorcycle from jump street. Decisions, decisions... Great looking bike though!

Just saw one of these in person today. Looks very sharp, and like the newer Ninja 250s, it takes a second good look to figure out it's a 250 and not a more middleweight street bike. The person who owned it was very happy with it.

I have always liked the look of the CBR line. I agree with Nancy, too bad they didn't make it a bit more powerful. The 125cc CBR is nice looking but way too tiny and this isn't much better. I think this one would be fun for a short time and you will see lots for sale the same year because even a beginner would outgrow it fast. Wonder what the ABS is going to add in $$?

I think it's a bummer that they are marketing this as a "beginner" or "female" bike and shows how crazy we are in the US at times. This looks like a wicked fast track or city bike that would be a ton of fun to have anywhere.

If the price point was slightly lower it would be a fantastic option for a cheap sportbike too.

I'm surprised at how much heavier it is than the CBR125R available in Canada though.

Just for the record, Honda has not said this is a "female" bike, nor are they marketing it as such.
