My ride into work is 30 miles of wide open throttle, redline pushing and some hard breaking. A good 8 miles of high speed canyon carving another 8 of windy country flat lands and then the last 14 into the city is pure lane splitting, cager dodging, gridlock.
I like it. Wasn't action packed but then the video represented the common 250r rider. It's not a super sport bike so why make a vid of the 250r in that light? I found it quite peaceful to watch which is also what I feel when I ride mine
Honda is targeting new riders, not racers with this bike/ad. Personally this one speaks to me (I can relate on almost all points to some degree), and is more suited to this bike than making it appear as a racebike.
