Have booked Honda CBR250R and need some suggestions
Finally, this is my first post in team-bhp and I am quite kicked at the moment having booked a CBR250R. I have just stepped into my 30s and I will be gettin on a Motorbike after almost 10 years and I am seeing the CBR250R as my first step towards getting into riding. I always had the passion but never actually got serious enough. I am not sure still how much I will actually be riding the bike and the next few months will be a test to see if I deserve a superbike down the years. I have booked a Red Std version though Honda seems to have introduced a new color option (HRC) which is infact the blue-red-white combo. The dealer couldn't confirm whether this will be available but there are high chances they could get the HRC models in the new lot.
I had two options - the Ninja 250R or the CBR. My wife says that since this is a kind of an experiment for me, I shouldn't be spending so much money rightaway. If all goes well with this so-called experiment, I am eyeing the Triumph Street Triple
I have a few questions right now and will appreciate if the experienced folks can put in their bits:
1. Should I be buying the C-ABS version or the Std one. My riding will be quite limited (maybe to run a few errands and an occasional ride). Does paying about 27K additional make sense?
2. I have already ordered the following equipment:
- Nuvo Revolution Helmet : Carbon Black
- Alpinestars SP-X Gloves : Black
3. I am planning to get a textile riding jacket (Alpinestars T-GP Plus Air Jacket). Is that good enough?
4. Also, has the quality of the bike increased over time? I have seen a lot of complaints about parts getting rusted, etc.
P.S. Mods, this should be merged to a similar thread please do so.
