@shisoshin Have you heard whether it will be available in Aussie mate?
I've contacted my dealer and he's finding out for me if it's coming to NZ.

Its very easy.
If Yamaha and Kawasaki sell their R25 and new Ninja 250 in your country, then there's a good chance you get the 250RR later on.
If the two companies sell the R3 and the Ninja 300 in your country, then you will have to wait with the rest of the world for the 300+ RR later on. There's a good chance your NZ dealer says there is no official word from Honda yet.
The only 250cc restricted markets I know of are Indonesia, Japan and Turkey.

I think I read somewhere that this 250RR will only hit the roads in November this year so local market will be given priority till then.

Life has taught me that generally nothing is straight forward.
Will keep you posted on what dealer comes back with.

kiwi - im still off the road, with no special info
about local importation etc.. heres an au link tho;
Honda unveils new CBR250RR for 2017 - BikeOnline.com.au

one factor for new models would be our lams
[learner] limited list of approved motorcycles..

altho this has been widened from the original
250cc limit to include larger motorcycles
within a power to weight ratio, its still
speculation on a possible 35-38hp 250..
if it gets on our lams list then no doubt
many novices would snap them up,
depending on price of course..

heres an up to date nsw lams list, notice 86-96 cbr250rr
[4cylinder] which is still very popular here including
with novices.. [almost exact 249.6cc as the new 250rr]..

The upside-down fork is very cool. Wondering what's going on with the brake setup...looks like a radial caliper at first but it's not. Curious about the extended arm above the caliper...what is it?

Yeah the USD's are a cool feature, glad they went with that option. I heard they are still only 37mm diameter tho which surprised me. It appears the full list of confirmed specs is not available yet which seems odd.

reagrding the extended arm, my best guess is that it's part of the mounting plate for the actual brake calliper, could be wrong tho.

It serves as the upper mounting point for the caliper carrier (two larger socket head screws). The small extension cast at the top of the main casting is the upper mounting point for the fender (button socket head screw).

What a slick looking bike. I think Honda may have beat Yamaha in the "Transformer" styling department.
Looks very futuristic. I've always loved bikes like Fazers that look a couple of years ahead of everything out there.
I'm really warming to that muffler too. Reminds me of a Ducati Monster's.
Man, I sure hope it does well and they bring out a 350cc version eventually.
