Skyway6- Very good question and I actually pondered it. The reason I didn't do it wasn't because I wanted to save the under-seat storage but because I wanted to be able to easily pop off the...

Very true, glred. It does make mounting the bike a bit more careful since your right leg can't swing as far back as it does ordinarily. That being said, thankfully the seat is so low on the CBR that...

Mission Honda claimed my valves needed adjusting at the 600 mile service. Can't prove they did anything but the engine definitely sounded different when they gave it back.

Oddly, I also hear my engine ticking a lot more after I had my 600 mile service. But runs great and it's only been 150 miles since then so I'm just going to wait and see what happens. :)

I'd suggest if visibility is a priority to choose your bike color based on that and not solely on aesthetics. While I love the black CBR250R, I chose mine in red/silver to help with being seen.

It's almost too embarrassing to say my OTD price but I can tell you in the SF bay area the prices are super high. My red/silver with ABS was 5700 OTD. But I'm loving it and not looking back :-)

I agree that the 2011/2012 Silver/Red is a better combo than the 2013 red/black although the black wheels and black exhaust cover are pretty killer.
