I took advantage of Honda Canada's deal on 1 year additional warranty, match a $250 deposit and 90 days deferred payment on bike. My Christmas gift to myself. For the last two years have been driving a Honda CRF 230L and wasn't using it as it should be..Dual Purpose..Two years, 14,000 kilometers..figured buy myself a real street bike and was waiting for the Honda 700 NT to come to Canada. Went on a demo ride and fell in love with the CBR 250R. Tried the CBR 600 and did fit me right. I wasn't comfortable but the 250 was made for me. I'm 5'2" 120 lbs. Drove my husband crazy bringing home all the magazines he finally told me to go buy the bike. Now, just waiting for the SNOW to leave and I can start putting the miles on.
