OK, I love my CBR 250R, it's a brilliant little agile and econonomical COMMUTER, which is just why I bought it, but it is still MUCH SLOWER than most 250 cc SPORTS bikes from 30 years ago. Your comments please. ;)

Here's my take: The CBR250 is a sportbike just like the Honda S2000 is a sports cars. The power and pure performance doesn't compare to a "real" sports car...Corvette, 911, Lambo, etc.. (Maybe the Mazda Miata is a better comparison?)

What is more fun to blast around on every day? No comparison.

Honda could still sell the old CBR250RR, but it would be about the same price as a CBR600. All the good parts cost money even with smaller pistons. High performance 250 = high strung = high maintenance.
