Suppose it was a silly thing to comment on but I'm aware of the NSR250r MC11 which was a torquey little sport bike. It came out in 1987 I think; 2stroke, 2 cylinder. It was great on both the track and street, but as was pointed out, it did have a few issues.

A twin? I was really hoping it would be like the original. An inline four that could genuinely rev up to 19,000rpm. I mean, I expected that it would be a twin, but I was really hoping.

I have to agree the old inline 4 would be great in a today model with all the new technology. There are a few for sale here locally the original 250rr, but kinda worried about getting one due to parts being limited availability plus it would be bike #4 setting in my garage and I know the wife would kill me. Maybe once my little brother buys my RR ill sneak in a 250rr new model of course.

Looking at the picture, size and position of the manifolds says, the bike is equipt with 'only' a 2 cylinder engine .
As long it's not a 500cc engine in the picture, ....
Also it would fit the 2 cylinder line, 650, 500, 3xx, 250, methinks
(ops, forgot:
My guess is, Honda is planing a 650 twin bike, like Yamaha and Kawasaki is selling already, too)

I tried to hit "Thanks", but apparently that is beyond my permission. So I'll do it the longer, more annoying (to everybody) way...

Thanks.

Honda already has the 500R. And a brand new 650F. They are not going to make a 650 twin. This new bike is "light weight". It will be 320 to 370cc as needed to make 45hp. Possibly with a 250 destroked variant for countries that still have a 250 licensing tier.

You should put that in the "site news & feedback" section so that the mods / admins are made aware of that.

Note that Honda's 500 models are destroked/sleeved down to 400 for the Japanese domestic market. They wouldn't want the new bike to clash with those so I'd expect it to be closer to 300cc than 400.
