Mine feels rock solid even at highway speeds and still has power to accelerate or pass. When I get over 80 mph it feels like what it is - fast!
From a stop you can get enough speed to kill yourself in a few seconds. Never ever
think of a CBR250R as a moped.
Island Rick has a very good point, my point was that since you already have a CBR1000 the bike is going to seem very very very very slow. If you've ever been on a Honda Reflex it is very similar in power. The bike handles like a dream and is super fun and well worth the money.
