Switching Speedo Readout Mode Between MPH & km/h
It appears that Honda has a typographical error in the English language version of the 2012 CBR250R/RA Owner's Manual, regarding the procedure for changing the readout between MPH and km/h:
The first part is correct - Press and hold the Mode button for about 3 to 4 seconds, until the display starts flashing.
Then you press the Reset button (not the Mode button as the O/M instructs you to do) to switch between MPH and km/h readouts.
Once the display is flashing in whichever readout you want, you then press Mode and hold it for 3 to 4 seconds until the display stops flashing, which locks it on that readout.
Also as an FYI, it doesn't matter whether the engine is running or not in order to be able to switch between MPH and km/h readout modes... as long as the instrument cluster is powered up, the readout mode can be changed.
