I don't have a CBR 250R yet but I am shopping for a small cc commuter. I rode the Ninja, I like what I got out of it. This would not be my first bike, I currently own a GSXR 600 and TE 450 Husky and have owned a RC51. I need a maximum MPG for a 70 mile round trip commute. My biggest question is,

Does the 250R support heated grips/vest? My commute is the the early morning hours.


Thanks :D

Welcome... not sure of the answer for your question but the CBR can do 70 miles on a gallon of gas pretty easily, depending on your driving conditions.

Really? Maybe it doesn't get as cold on the coast as it does in the high desert, or maybe it's just because I ride year-around, but I use heated gloves for half the year for my 65 mile 0400 commute.

Could be that I'm just a sissy, I guess. ~20 degrees at 80mph makes my fingers hurt.

To the OP - I don't know if heated grips are an option, but gloves and a vest should be OK - it depends on the wattage you want to use.
