Hey guys

Hey guys,

New memeber checking in from Colorado (Insert legal pot jokes here). New to the forum, old to the bike. I bought my cbr250ra back in 2013 just shortly after she launched. Spent several years being ridden hard and put away wet. Since then several other bikes have accompanied her in the darkness of my garage and while they seem to change more often then most change oil old faithful 250 finds a way to hang on for another season of riding. So i figured it was time to join the club and circulate my experiences.

Welcome friend! I also bought a brand new cbr250 in 2013, but it was a 2011! Glad you joined up, look forward to reading about your experiences.

Not true... in the U.S. market, CBR250RA ABS models were available beginning with the first model year, 2011.

You have a point Schroeder, not every color was offered with abs in the US. Canada however offered abs in every color when the 250 was released in 2011. And of course, Scrapes is welcome.
