Hoping the new CBR250R ABS that I ordered for my wif will get to our dealer in Oregon soon. We have lots of miles to ride this spring and summer and wanna get to it. Honda seems to be taking its sweet ole time.:confused:

Greeb! We should be comparing dealer and delivery notes. I have ordered my bike via Cycle Country in Salem...Todd, my sales guy, says early to mid June now for an ABS delivery. Interesting because they are getting some bikes at many locations in the states now including west coast (CA)...all very modest numbers as you know.

I'm also looking to buy in Portland. Most of the dealers I have called are asking roughly the same markup over MSRP. I haven't put down a deposit yet, but I am hopeful by mid-May I can negotiate a reasonable deal.

Not to interrupt but I am waiting for a black ABS. Just wanted to say hey. Told by the dealer probably June. Dealer said he should know for sure this coming Tuesday IF he is getting a black ABS and when. Hard to resist a black non ABS if it comes in. Arrrgggg!

Dates

The one I ordered is a red ABS at Beaverton Motorcycles. They told me first part of June now! I put money down on it quite a while back and a good thing, They said they ordered 20 and are only getting 3 from Honda, My ABS and two non ABS, 1 black and 1 red. I know there is one coming to the dealer over in Bend also that was not yet sold.

xplorguy,

You waiting for an ABS model like I am? I want a red one. You?
Kutter! Yea...I am waiting...waiting for ABS...in Black. I must say the Red is looking awfully sharp in new owner photos. I was a little bit discouraged when on of our forum members seeing both colors said the RED looked far better!............

My Salem dealer is saying the same date...this is a good sign. The limited deliveries is not a good sign...I guess it will be what it is.......my dealer had ordered 6 only...he did not say how many he was getting but had addressed my black abs with the regional sales rep...so I hope the Honda Rep gives a rip and makes it happen somehow.......

What kind of pricing from your Beaverton dealer? And how about the Bend location? If Bend has one unclaimed...I would wonder why at this point...

Beaverton Honda has a black (non-ABS) in stock that wasn't sold as a preorder. I received the call today. I'm hoping it won't sell today and I can negotiate a cash deal tomorrow. If not, I'll probably wait until I can get a decent price for a red (ABS).

Beaverton said MSRP $4500 + 399 ship and settup fee for the ABS model.
Bend said MSRP $4000 + 550 fee for non-ABS model. I see on this sight that some dealers have told people MSRP with no fees elswhere around the country!
