Get the repsol, you will have a very easy time reselling it.

I have not purchased a CBR250R yet. Now that the Repsol edition is an option, I'm even more motivated to buy.
I am the buyer that Honda has targeted with this new addition.

I couldn't care less if anyone doesn't care for it. Make jokes all you want.
That livery has history, and is loved by many. Including me.

Garage
as a follower of motoGP and a fan of the Repsol Team (Casey Stoner's injury in Brno was a huge suffer for the team, but I hope they still pull through), I would get that just because it looks amazing, why would you get the butt of all jokes? It's a repsol themed bike that is appeasing to the eye, all you need is a motoGP style slip on and you are good to go with the beginnings of a replica bike.

It's way more fun to be sweating than bleeding.

I will be the one laughing Those are my favorite colors, as I am a MotoGP/Honda fan as well, but I would never ride a 250cc street bike Repsol, just seems like a poser move to me.

"So thats a 250?"
"Yea"
"Do you do track days?"
"No"
"its...cool..."
"Yea, it looks like Casey Stoner's Bike!"
"I know..."
"Do you watch MotoGP?"
"Dude, I gotta go."

I've had a grand total of one person come up to me to comment about my bike over the past 6 months but in the unlikely event that i actually did have a conversation I'd guess it would probably go one of 2 ways:

"Nice bike, the orange wheels are crazy"
"Thanks"
"What's 'Repsol'?"
"A Spanish oil company. They sponsor a professional race team."
"Do you race?"
"No, I just like the way the bike looks."
"Yeah it's pretty cool. Well have a good one."
"You too. See ya."

OR

"Nice bike. Who do you think you are, Casey Stoner?
"Well I actually prefer to see myself as Dani Pedrosa but... Seriously, I just like the colors."
"You look like a poser riding a 250 in Repsol colors, I would never do that."
"And there's nothing saying you ever have to."
"Well you look stupid."
"Thank you for your unsolicited opinion, it's been duly noted. Listen dude, I gotta go. Y'all have a great day."



You're the one who's doing the judging here so let me ask you, would you really go up to someone on a Repsol 250 and put them on the spot by initiating the kind of conversation you hypothesized?

Moto3 has Repsl 250 bikes...


Do I believe a store bought 250 Repsol edition has the same performance? No.
Just like when I see a Repsol edition CBR1000RR on the road, I don't believe it's on the same level as Casey Stoners bike.

It's just a celebration of the race teams.
