Just received the Honda Attitude and Usage Study in the mail....
....and it comes with a $1 bill!
....and it comes with a $1 bill!
Lets see if i can think of anything....Damm, I cant think of any cons to tell Honda when I get the letter.
I am going to buy a lottey with the 1 dollar bill and if I win get a 1000rr. 2011 model.
Just my opinion on it, I'm not sure what you expect a bike that MSRP's for $3999 to be. I never expected German quality fit and finish that's for sure.Lets see if i can think of anything....
How about a new more comfortable stock seat ?...
a better/louder,meatier sounding muffler ?..
I wouldn't mess with that, it's perfect for the target market and the thumper sound is annoying.
a transmission that doesn't get stuck in neutral constantly ?
Mine is never stuck but if the gear set isn't lined up with the input shaft then you have to let the clutch out a tiny bit to get it to turn just enough to slide into gear. I'm told this is normal for a bike by anyone that's owned one.
a windscreen that doesn't direct wind right at your chest & head ?...
It wouldn't be so bad but I like the look of the short one
a first service that doesn't cost $300 ?..
Better not buy a 4 cylinder bike lol, 300 is pretty cheap for what they have to do if it's out of adjustment.
more storage space under the rear seat than just enough room for a pepsi
can and the manual no one knows they have or dont bother to read even when they do ?..
Definitely if they can do it w/o making it obvious!
a fuel gauge that doesnt flash to tell you that you are on empty then you can only squeeze 2.4 gallons into your 3.4 gallon tank when you fill up ?
It is a bit strange, and oddly mines not always consistently low at the same point. Not sure if this will be addressed or not but it's not that big of a deal for me. Unless they meant us to run it till the bar disappeared.
Not putting a 250 sticker on each side of the side of the bike or at least not make it impossible to remove if they do ?
Nobody ever notices mines a 250 lol. I get so many compliments on it.
Buttons that actually work on the dash and dont have to be pressed extremely hard repeatedly to get broke in first before they do ?
This is annoying, it gets better the more they are used but mines still a little buggy.
No more BB in can rattling sound at and over 5000 RPMs ?
This is a problem and I'm sure there will be a TSB on it soon, I just wish it would be fixed under warranty since it is obviously a loose wire/connector rattling under the fairings somewhere.
I could keep going..but i'll stop here...lmao .I actually love the bike..but its far from perfect. good luck on that lottery ticket...i would go for a VRF 1000 tho...they have the CBR250R body style
Have you ever tried or considered the Corbin saddle? It fits on the CBR250R-- I'm thinking about getting one and I'm trying to find somebody who has one who can tell me about it. Google them and please give it a look.i want them to know i think their stock seat is the worse ever made...tho i do know some people in here actually like it very much ? never will figure that one out? lol
I bought a Corbin to replace the stock one in august..$289 total..best $300 i have ever spent....5+ straight hours in the Corbin saddle and my cheeks on the outsides start to burn a bit but thats it...3+ hours in the stock saddle and my tailbone AND cheeks were in pure agony..I literally didnt want to ride again for days afterwards regardless of the beautiful weather.Have you ever tried or considered the Corbin saddle?

I'm hoping sarcasmand Somebody5788...I was simply stating some of the more obvious flaws in a reply to someone who said they couldnt think of one single thing wrong with it...but i could think of lots of things....there is always room for improvement..no matter what the product
and for 4 thousand dollars i expect high end top quality and and not one ounce less...to state that I didnt spend enough money to expect a high quality motorcycle is absurd to say the least
