Year Make Model Topic Be Descriptive!'89 Honda NX250

I like the ergonomics of a standard. This bike is a dual-sport w/ a 32" seat height, water-cooled, 4 valves and 2 OHCams, 11.0:1 compression and an old carb with a real flapper for the choke. Honda claimed 26 hp for it, also.

My interest in the cbr250r is only because I might have to replace the NX some day.

To my way of thinking, the on paper characteristics of the CBR250R engine suggest that it should really have been used in a new incarnation of the NX250, which is a much more practical and versatile machine. It came at the wrong time, at the start of a couple of decades of a bigger is better attitude. Now the quarter litre class seems to have come back in favour, maybe we will see something like the NX again soon. I hope so.

there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists,
but you seldom meet an old bold motorcyclist
