Well 50 people have seen enough of a point in the poll to respond so far. For 42% the CBR250R was their first bike, and for another 18% it was their second. A bit surprising to me as most would be new or near new. Few of my peers bought new for their first or even second bike.

......now that sound more like the truth
..reckon this is another pointless thread/poll ?
What is the point ,
Maybe the result of a wet dream about your prowess as a motor bicyclist?

Well, maybe. I can imagine becoming an olde farte who has trouble holding up the Goldwing that now shares stable space with my CBR. Would I convert the 'Wing to a trike? Maybe, but I think before doing that, I'd keep riding the CBR as long as I could and then when I can't manage that, just get out of motorcycling entirely . . . .
With luck, I'll be able to ride any motorcycle I want until I'm dead.

For about two thirds the CBR250R is, or will be, the machine for the early days of their motorcycling life. Some may stick with the quarter litre class, while others regard it as just an early step.
For about a third the CBR250R has come much further down the line. Some comments suggest that, for many of those, it is where they are happy to be.
I'm the latter.
I've always loved small displacement motorcycles. I just think they're a hell of a lot more fun than a heavier bike that has more power than you'll ever be able to tap into.
After 10 years or more of having no options under 500cc except the Ninja 250, it's so gratifying to finally have a choice in small bikes again. Now that it looks like Suzuki is getting on board too, I only hope Yamaha feels the need to outdo everything currently on the market soon.
