Hi all, I am from India, state of Kerala. I am not a technical genius or not even a in an ametuer level in technical aspects of motorbikes. I just have experience of riding my previous bike (Hero Honda Karizma R, a 225 cc bike with 17 bhp of power, it odo clocked 58,000 km) for the past 6 six and maintaining it almost as good as new. The very next year I bought Karizma R the Cbr 250 R reached our Indian market. From those days onwards I was a fan of this bike. But as my Karizma was newly bought and limited financial recources I couldnt reach the Cbr those days. Today is the day for me. After long waiting I bought my new Cbr 250 R non abs model in red colour. Bought it in a great deal, as the BS3 (Euro 3) model bikes got banned for registration in India last April 1st day onwards, my Cbr was already registered to the bike showroom's owner on the 31st of March. The usual price of Cbr 250 non abs was Rs. 1,85,000. which is equal to 2,885 USD, but due to the bann on BS3 motorbikes I got it for Rs. 1,25,000. only, which is equal to 1,950 USD.
In India Cbr 250's reputation is not like that of in most of the other countries. Here, 250 cc 26 bhp bike is considered as a very powerful bike and a head turner in the public. Bikes with greater than 500 cc are seen very less here on the roads, Cbr is one among the rare bikes in my locality (as there are lots of KTM's and other Indian brands being offered with more power with lesser price). Even before I started the procedures to purchase the bike, I began searching the web to get some basics about maintaining the Cbr in a good condition for a long term. That's how I reached this place, which looks like a great place for me. Hope, you members would be in support for me. I am attaching some pics of my new Cbr 250R (with my phone, so not sure about the picture quality, if low, ll be redoing it from pc soon)
