Try a CBR150R. And go straight back on the CBR250, after.
There is not really a need in driving results, to get the bigger 250cc bike...
Exactly. Which is one of the reasons why AHMC never imported the CBR125R & 150R to the US. That, and they probably figured that those two models just wouldn't sell very well in a country where the motorcycle culture is for the most part all about "bigger is better".in the USA and Europe, superhighway travel is common and sustained speeds over 70 mph/ 115 kph are required which the 150 cannot guarantee. The 300 single is the perfect minumum engine size.
I'm guessing that more than a few marketing types at AHMC were pleasantly surprised by how well the CBR250R sold here during it's first 2 years in the US.
@sendler - Not sure about the age demographic poll... could be one buried in one of the forums. To bad there isn't a way (that I know of) to cross reference just the threads that have polls attached to them.
