New Honda CBR250RR

So honda cbr250rr rumours are becoming more viable... Looks like a mix of Ninja 300 & 250rr with tyga kit.

It looks great but the concept images always do. Often the final product is a lot more watered down the concept. I noticed this when I was following the birth of the R3 and the KTM RC390.

Yes, I would be interested in buying something like this but I'd be a little reluctant to go back to a 250cc engine size.

I'm going to wait. I think the current 300's look better. And it would be interesting to see what price they would be put these bikes out for. If the price is nearing the 500r price i would be thing more towards buying the CBR500r

I understand what you are saying Wings and many perhaps feel the same way. But for me the 500 R is a nice bike but its weight kind of turns me off. (Same when I look in the mirror) For me the appeal is a light weight sport (ish) bike that is easily moved around and easily flick-able...that is a really good handling machine.

So even if the new 250 RR was priced close to the 500R I would rather buy the 250 RR...but for outside of Asia.......Honda please make it a least a 300 RR or even better a 350 RR.

I hope it doesn't end up looking this transformer-ish.

Myself I really like the look of the current model.
....I think it looks better than the R 3.

I would be interested, if this concept is a 4 cylinder machine like the old CBR250RR. Now that bike was quick.

Me too. I guess I would prefer 300 ccs too or maybe a little more since I wouldn't really want a bike that was set up for competitive racing mostly. Something along the lines of the Ninja 300 or CBR300r but with 4 cylinders would work for me. A lot of these bikes start out as looking like race bikes, but then the reality of the market kicks in and they decide to make the bikes appeal to a broader group that includes street riders. 4 cylinders would be key. Aprilia riders have been begging Aprilia to come out with a 4-cylinder small race bike for a long time to no avail.

The 300cc market is well established in Thailand so can't see them bringing in a 250.If it was an inline four the price would be doubled but the 300 would have more power.You would only be paying for the sound.
Just put some clip ons and rearsets on the 300 and you have an RR.
