It's a cycle of snooze. Nobody comments on new posts, so nobody posts. Nobody posts, so nobody visits. Nobody visits, so nobody sees new posts.

Yep, traffic generates more traffic. Could be worse, I'm seeing four active topics for today so far inc this one.
Weekends can be deathly quiet on the 300 forum Ive noticed. All those people who log in at work not at their computer filling in a quiet moment!

As soon as the CBR300R came out this forum became obsolete.

J/K. I've learned a lot here, and never owned a CBR of any type. Owned a dozen Hondas (still have half of them), but never a CBR.

I do miss some of the colorful regulars that have moved on though. Aufitt comes to mind.
shisoshin and Stichill like this.

Yeah Aufitt sold his CBR and moved to an R3 as soon as it became available. The engine in the R3 is wonderful - loved it on my two test rides of it - but in my opinion the R3 doesn't have the good handling and road feel that the CBR chassis delivers. Which is why I am intensely curious about the CBR250RR...

Unfortunately we will have to remain curious as there appears to be no plans to offer this model to Western markets. I did briefly look into importing one from Indonesia but I would only have been able to ride it at the track or sneakily (read illegally) on the road.

I'm really hoping the new CBR3?? will be based on the 250RR with enlarged engine capacity. If so I'm just concerned how they could keep the price competitive. For example in Japan the 250RR currently commands a 50% higher price tag than the 250R. USD$6,850 vs 4,520 (converted from Yen).
A watered down version of the 250RR would be disappointing.

I have both, the R3 and the CBR250R. The CBR had the Takewaga big bore kit (305cc) fitted with the racing cams and fuel controller. Sadly, I had to refit the original barrel and piston, whilst retaining the cams. At times I let friends borrow the R3, I follow in the CBR. With it's Pirelli tyres the CBR is more than a match for my R3 on the twisties. Agree that the CBR can be more fun.
