the reason i actually went with the cbr was because kawasaki wanted almost $1000 more for a pre-owned ninja 250r. in the end i was glad i went with it because of the newer technology on the honda and better looks but no one was making me deals on thoseI doubt this since it would totally dismiss the price point of the current ninja 250R. Which as everyone knows is the driving force on the cbr250r current price. I don’t see Honda being so arrogant that they think that they could offer a more expensive entry bike and compete well against the established current champion which is faster and has a solid reputation and huge following. They could only get rid of the non abs model if they plan to sale the ABS unit at the same price of the ninja and I don’t see that happening.
