I'm 183cm/80kg.



More room to move around on the cbr than the little Ninja.

6'1" 240lbs. Find the bike amazingly comfortable (although I may buy a new seat at some point) I don't have a picture of me riding...I feel that photos take away part of my soul. Oh wait, I have no soul!! I'll get that picture to you ASAP

6" tall and plenty of room.
Just got home after an urban ride in the rush hour.
It's unbelievable how easy this thing pass through the traffic jam
feathering clutch in first and second gear... the thumper pushing below 3000rpm...

Only thing is the wind protection from the stock windscreen.
A thing that can be solved with aftermarket, for less than 100$ (shipping to Italy costs)

my wife refuses to allow me to have a soul...
marriage killing soul too shame :(:D
Great thing about being a taller rider is you can place your feet flat on the ground and even stand up at stop lights to give your legs a stretch or to give your butt a rest. ;)
yes,being tall not good all but got a few advantages

You guys are a bunch of shorties. I don't have any pics (yet), but I'm 6'4" (192 cm), 195lbs, and am very comfortable on the cbr250r - as much so as on my tall '05 Duc Multistrada.

Whenever I feel subconscious about looking too tall for a small bike, I just pretend I'm Marco Simoncelli amongst a bunch of Dani Pedrosa's.

I am 5'6" and feel the cbr250 is a perfect fit. I can place balls of both feet on ground while stopped. However, knees are considerably bent while riding. Fine for me, but don't you taller riders find you knees going too high?

The tank is consintently smaller than any other bike I know.
My knees fit perfectly, and legs yes are bent but not tight, so it is confortable even after riding for a while.

I'm 6'2" and fit well, but I do tuck on the interstate, otherwise I feel like a sail.

I'm 6'4", 200 lbs with a 34" inseam and I fit fine on my 2012 cbr250. I dont have any pictures, but it doesn't feel cramped at all, and I can even tuck with no problem. knees don't go above the gas tank or anything like that so I don't imagine that it looks weird
