I normally just ask back "Do you wear a seatbelt?" If they answer yes (and 99% do), I just parrot back "I guess you're planning on crashing too". Normally works. lol

I rode one at a demo day a month or so back and really liked it. As for being heavy/hard at slow speeds I never really noticed it, with the exception of always making sure I leaned it how I wanted...

Congrats on the new bike -- I wouldn't call the 500 light by any means, but it definitely has more grunt than the 250.

Pretty sure the bike has a safety feature where it will not start with the throttle pinned. Best is to just clutch in then try releasing the clutch to see if you can 'push-start' it.

I only really notice it around 6000-6200rpm. I've talked to friends who own other 600cc I4 bikes and most mention the same thing -- there is a small range where the bike seems to vibrate/resonate a...

Top speed and higher speed acceleration doesn't seem that different than the old 250 -- I got mine as high as 163km/h at one point in time. 300 goes higher/faster, but still climbs at the same slow...

things like Tech-Spec or Stompgrip pads, or Tankslapper film are likely your best options. Personally I prefer Tech-Spec, and had them on my 250, but I just have the Tankslapper film on the new 650...

I've been seeing the same thing here in Ontario -- new R is 3499 and RA is 3999, but people are trying to sell bikes as old as 2011s for 4500-5000. In some cases, the bike has even been dropped. lol

With the 250, it was manly rung out in top gear to get around 4.1. I'd get low 3s or potentially even less if I was using it at city speeds. Average was around 3.3-3.5 and that was either 100km/h+...

Nope not Canada -- we only get blue and silver here, both with ABS. I believe Tri-colour is for Europe.

Still can't really comment on the bike as I only have 400km under my belt, but so far so...

Interesting I wonder if Canada is the same. The CBR650F has HISS (or whatever it is called), but when playing around with the cluster I don't recall seeing the HISS light options mentioned in the...

Mine worked flawlessly right up until I traded it in for the CBR650F. Can't knock the 250 for anything, besides needing more passing power for the freeway.

As for others who had issues, I'm not...

Will do -- I think I left some notes from the test ride I did in the 650F thread, but real world does differ. I only have 90km on her now so I can't really say much (besides 'omg power everywhere'...

Given the limited numbers and the fact it is brand new, I really don't think you can negotiate much on the CBR650F. Best I could do on the actual bike was getting them to drop all PDI, freight, and...
