While I was in Japan this year on a business trip, I had an opportunity to see the new CBR250RR in the flesh.

I must say I was pretty impressed with the looks, and the overall package. I sure hope to see Honda release a variant of the new RR here in the US. I'm told that the RR was a big seller in Japan when released there, and sold out pretty quick. I'm guessing Honda might be limiting sales on a broader market basis until it gets its production ramp up ready.

I have several bikes already, but I would seriously consider adding the RR if it comes out here.

There's a guy on the 300 forum based in India who seems to have insider knowledge some how and he doesn't appear to be full of BS.
Anyhoo, he reckons Honda are building a new plant in Thailand at present to manufacture the new RR, what ever size it will be. As u prob know the 250RR has been built in Indonesia thus far.
I recently looked into importing a 250RR into NZ, there's tons of them for sale on the Goobike website. It got too complicated and expensive. There was no guarantee I would be able to get it road registered here so it may have become an expensive (yet fun) track bike only. The killer expense wise was that I was going to have to pay 15% import duties.

Honda has been very busy putting out new models and prototypes, but not much attention shown to a larger 250RR for America -

Everything old is new again, and naked is still "in" apparently.

That Neo Sport really does look as cool as............. and equally impractical for anything more than an hour's riding on a sunny day, which will most likely be enough for a good many buyers.
It'll be interesting to see how they can mount indicators and a number plate without spoiling the lines of it.

The prototypes always look way cooler without the road going gear and generally have a trick exhaust system that your never going to get on a production model. Generally I find by the time these bikes make it into production they are so watered down they have lost the 'cool' edge they had at the prototype stage.
It is a sexy lookin beast tho!
Honda's biggest news at the show this year seemed to be the new Goldwing which is about as far removed from what bikings all about for me as it gets. Yawn.
