Why do you want a CBR250R?

What is it about the CBR250R that has you wanting one? For me, being an owner of a Honda CBR1000RR already, I want to keep it in the family and I've always had good luck with Honda products. Not to mention the single cylinder should provide more torque than the Ninja 250, which is what I really want on the streets anyway.

At times a small light maneuverable bike is the ticket. One of my favorite by-gone bikes was a Kawasaki KZ440. It had a short wheelbase (shorter than the CBR250R) and tons of cornering clearance. It could be slung around tight corners with ease and a big margin of safety. I'd been toying with the idea of a Ninja 250 for a while but when the announcement of the CBR250R came out my mind was made up to go for the CBR. Like a few others that I see here I have other 100+ HP bikes (CBR1100XX and Triumph Speed Triple). I see no reason to try and 'hop up' the CBR250 engine (suspension upgrades may be another story).. As someone wisely pointed out and I agree "if you want more power, just buy a bigger bike"
