Hi,
I bought a CBR 250 R at the end of last month. I live in Thailand so, for here it is a large bike. In fact it is the largest bike sold here that is made in Thailand. My previous bike was the CBR 150 R. When I compare the two, the 250 R is much better. There is more power and better brakes. You can drive confidently at 90 KM/H. Unlike the West, there are very few places that you can go more than 90!
The CBR is great for driving in urban settings as well because it's steering is quite light. The gas mileage is lower than the CBR 150 but still quite good. I have averaged about 350 kms per tank.

Hey Peter,

You answered a question I had today. 350km = about 217.5 miles. The fuel tank holds 3.4 gallons. Assuming you are not running it dry, that means you are getting maybe around 65 MPG. Not bad. Does that include your runs to 90 kph? Makes me think if you take it easy you can maybe push to 70 MPG?

Do you wear a helmet? I do. My bike has done over 275 kph. Pretty crazy, huh?

Were there any other 250s that competed with the Honda in Thailand before you decided on the Honda?
