I sent an email to Honda Canada last week about when to expect delivery of my CBR250r or at least when they would arrive in Canada. Below is the response I got back.

Good afternoon Mr. Jones,

Thank you for contacting Honda Canada.

We appreciate your interest towards our Honda Products & vehicles.
Unfortunately, we do not have a specific date available for the 2011
CBR250r to be delivered. At the moment, the only confirmation available is
the units will be delivered during the spring of 2011.

Sincerely,

Kar Lun Wong
Customer Relations Specialist
HONDA CANADA INC.

Not the response I was hoping to hear after reading the thread title. Just that response alone should be enough to make everyone aware, April will be unrealistic for CBR250R deliveries in Canada. What a bummer. Look forward to May

Has anyone heard from any other sources from Honda?

I'm still hoping it is in April as all the advertising online plus the Dealer themselves told me April. Otherwise I'm going to expect some nice swag for being lied to. I'm big on delivering! If I don't meet my deliverables at work I hear about it. So will they. Bitchy I know but come on!

Does anyone know the exact US delivery date?

Well if Canada gets in in Spring it shouldn't be to big of an issues.. as the weather now isnt exactly great. Im considering buying a bike and getting my license as well, but insurance in Canada is a killer.

info from honda canada

Hi everyone - i contacted my dealer in ontario a week ago and he too was saying 'april', but given Honda Canada's vague response to the e-mail inquiry, it makes me seriously question of anyone there knows, or wants to tell us when they may arrive. sure is poor PR. from a business perspective, they would be better to be straight with customers than give them a non-answer like 'spring'. meanwhile, the weather here continues to improve. sure hope it gets here soon or I too will go out and buy a ninja, as there is a modest rebate on them here. it would be unfortunate as the honda is clearly the technological leader, and i'm sure resale will be higher.

I folded- will pick up my deposit from the Honda dealer tomorrow. I am going for a Suzuki SV650- put a down payment on it this evening and will be getting it as soon as my loan gets signed/finalized. It's used, and cheaper (than the new Honda price) so I won't feel as bad if I do drop it.

I don't blame you. If I didn't have my CM450c to ride, I'd probably be screaming around on my new Ninja.

topherguns - That is great to hear. Maybe worth the drive for me just to see one again. Are they offering test rides?

Just checked Dealer website in Bowmanville, Ontario. They too are having a launch of the bike this Saturday. I've RSVP'd to be there. Let's hope I get some info.

Not sure how much I can add to the speculation, but my dealer here in Calgary told me to expect my 250 towards the end of may! I think i'm the second shipment as he mentioned the first shipment was expected mid may. Not sure how much of this was sales but I'm not in a huge rush so I'm willing to be patient. Almanac says a long dry summer for the prairies =D

update from honda canada

just got off the phone with customer relations at honda canada. they confirmed that shipments of the 250 will begin may 16. i asked if shipments will be less than anticipated due to issues in Japan etc, but he said that's not accurate - they are expected to deliver what was ordered. He said i should have my bike by the end of May at the latest. here's hoping this is true...:)

May 16th seems to be the date but like my dealer in Ottawa he is no longer sure which bikes are on what orders or how many they are getting in that first order. Hopefully they all have your guys' orders.
