My review on the Honda CBR 250RA


Friday night! It was time for me as I rode home my black ceeber. I had taken test rides at different dealers to satisfy myself I was making the right decision in so much of my hard earned

Finally, I called up and visited the who told me that I can get immediate Awesome

Visited the dealer ( Honda @ Domlur ) and told I want to purchase the bike ABS. They had kept 2 (one of them black, I wanted) in the showroom. I said of some paranoia) that I want the one kept on the showroom

So, they obliged me by taking me to godown and showed me 3 bikes I religiously inspected and finally in on one.

Next up — paperwork. the forms, etc. They got the from the godown to the showroom 2 minutes away) and started the PDI in my When I was satisfied, I took the and left.

Smooth process, no great buying experience Haiku.

Freebies (?)

I got a teflon and seat covers free the dealer. Also, servicing of bike is at 6 month intervals. May and then December. 3 free

The Bike — looks

is one awesome looker, no two ways that. The styling is not flamboyant, but eyeballs. The fat rear-tyre (yeah, like this) is a sight to So is the exhaust (some like it, don’t).

The blue-backlit display is also eye-catching. All said and I loved her from the first I set my eyes upon her.

The Bike — handling and

I am religious and a tad paranoid when it to running-in the engine. So, I keep the below 5k. But trust me, it is DIFFICULT! A of the throttle and the surge in power is The speedo just races to 75 and I have to ease off.

I have to keep a watch on the so that I don’t exceed the

Handling is a breeze. Effortless. in stop and go traffic, holding bike steady is very (I used to do that with my ZMR but this is better). The exhaust is also exhilerating.

Of course, it better as the rpms increase.


Headlight is great . I had fit an HID on my ZMR, but I was NOT with it probably since the who fit it did a shoddy job of it. On this baby I don’t think I need I don’t do a lot of highway riding at so I’m happy with the 55W

Haven’t felt the need to use beam yet, so there.

is wide enough and comfortable.

Fit and is good . I didn’t see any uneven Could have been but hey, I am not complaining.

There are no or weird noises. I had these with my ZMR from day 1 :( Depite the fairing, etc. by the ASC folks, no With this bike, are no unwanted sounds.

Just the of the engine.

The Bad

Fully turning the causes it to touch the fairing, as in, is a limit to which you can turn the and I feel that is quite to get a small turning radius.

The horn is appalling . Wish I fit my ZMR’s twin horns on baby. The sound of the horn is unnoticeable for a bike of this and presence.

In stop and go traffic, the heat is feel-able on the calves. I ridden this bike in yet, it’ll be worse. was a problem with ZMR also but this bike, the heat is a bit

Don’t know where to put the or helmet lock . I wish had some accessories like a bag (like Goldwing) in which at a helmet could fit. release the bike with no for these kinds of accessories.

The and rear brake pedals are uncomfortable . Need to flex foot a lot to change the gear. In an braking situation, it wastes milliseconds to flex your to bring it on top of the brake pedal. have probably been better.

In continous stop-and-go traffic, is a cause of shin pain and knee pain.

The Ugly

The stand! Horrible. I don’t why Honda didn’t give a centre stand to support the of this motorcycle.

The logic (I was by the dealer) is that there is no stand in super bikes. I that hard to digest super bikes are generally and need more support. In the curbs and roads are so non-standard, and sometimes potholed, that you have to THINK where to the bike so that it won’t over to it’s side. a center stand, this have been a no-brainer.

Sorely miss it.

Haven’t in the rain or on watery roads, so I know if the small front is incapable (as reported in other

Overall, I give it a total
