    Yup, that’s right, Honda is making a 250cc singe sporty, and it MAY come to the US…

    Here’s hoping.

    Watch out Ninja…there could be some stiff competition in town.

    But even more, hey Honda, how about some middleweights, huh? Talk about a gap in your U.S. lineup.

    Looks pretty cool, and definitely could be some competition for the littlest Ninja. Too bad it didn’t come out 2 years ago when I was shopping for my first bike. I totally echo your sentiment JT… wish Honda would come out with something similar to the Ninja 650R / GSX650F / FZ6R. I kinda like their NT700V, but not sure I could afford the price.

    We seem to be getting a lot more bikes imported over the last couple of years than you guys in the States…

    Honda

    CBR125R …

    CBR250R…

    CBF600SA…

    Kawasaki Ninja 400R…

    I don’t know if you are getting this one…it is basically a naked GSX-R750…

    GSR750…

    Later.

    I’m really liking that GSR750, standard riding position of the old SV650 and the power and handling of the GSXR750. Hard to go wrong there.

    I haven’t been around for awhile but I’m glad this thread is here. Friend on Youtube just made me aware of the CBR250R (he did so by mislabelling the video CBR250RR… two Rs… which made me briefly believe that my wet dream of having an actual honest to god QUARTERSPORT in the States had come true. Then I saw the video… in which Honda very deftly dances around the fact that this the 250R is 1: a thumper and 2: coming out of their Thailand plant. I am disappointed and unimpressed. It’s something the US market bloody well needs, but it sure as heck is not in any way shape or form what I -want-. Two thumbs and my dog’s tail down. Also take the R out of the name, Honda, this is clearly not a CBR anything. Call it a CB250R if you must sell it. I know CBR will sell more units, but it’s outright dishonest.
