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.

I'm considering a CBR250R because I get less of kick these days from riding bike fast. I own and have owned many bigger and much faster bikes, but am growing tired of riding around on half or even a quarter throttle all the time. Must be getting old but I get more satisfaction out of riding a tight set of hairpins at 50mph than I do from accelerating hard up to VERY illegal speeds.

I'm hoping for good handling (as good as my old Hornet 600 hopefully), good reliability (like my Vstrom 650), lightweight and cheap to run bike that can be ridden much of the time at close to it's peak performance.
