Great to hear that. I love both the new Red and the white colour, but the dealer (Ananda Honda) did not have a white one for me to check in person. So, I am waiting for stocks to come in before I book

Sigh. So my wait for this bike gets longer. I don't know what exactly are the problems they have to bring it down to India.

Hello,
Any one planning to buy a CBR250 now?
Please let me know, if so.

Thanks.

Was doing research for a friend, and decided against it because I don't think the Honda dealers give a rat's behind about CBR customers. They're selling enough Activas and Splendor clones to make themselves rich, so there aren't any test-ride motorcycles available at all. What finally convinced me was a letter I wrote to the company asking them why no test ride, and they didn't bother replying. Not so much as an acknowledgement. If this is the way they behave with prospective customers, I shudder to think of the treatment meted out to owners.

KTM, here we come.

Recently i had a starting complaint in my cbr and after diagonising by the service centre they found that the fuel pump is not working due to the blockage by rusting particles from the fuel tank. the fuel tank has completely corroded inside and they are asking me to change the fuel pump which costs Rs 12,000/-. The petrol tank in my pulser which is 2009 model is as good as new. wondering is this a one of or all cbr facing the problem. I have complained to customer care. waiting for the reply. another strange thing i noticed is service technician is telling me not to claim warranty as they will debit it in his account.

The fuel tank corroding is an issue that may or may not be related to manufacturing - I live near the sea, and we have found that if you don't keep your tank topped up, over the years metal tanks tend to corrode because of the moisture and salt in the air. However, the service guy telling you to not claim warranty is crap - he's doing it because if you claim warranty, he can't turn a profit from the sale of a tank and hours invested in the fitment. He'll have to bill the labour to the company, and the company will send another tank to him to replace the one he uses for you.

Go ahead, claim warranty.

You should claim warranty. How old is the bike? Which service centre?

100% wrong information or he might've meant that it might affect the ASC's stake on technical competence with HMSI

I've nearly 4 year old CPR & there's no rust in tank or whatsoever. I would suggest taking to reputed ASC like Saffire Honda in Bangalore & get the issue fixed. Pls check this thread where some reputed ASC has been listed - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...questions.html (Honda CBR 250R : Answers to some commonly asked questions)

The 250s of today are in many ways a step backward. While we're all hoping for a nice affordable 250cc twin, there were inline 4 250s from all the 4 Japanese brands from the mid or late 1980s to mind 90s.

The Honda CBR250RR is yore made its horsepower in the high 30s and revved to 20000rpm. You have got to hear this.

Twin cylinders tend to drone, inline 3s growl, the big inline 4s howl , but these small short stroke inline 4s wail, and wail like they're tail is on fire !



What fun this sounds like !

Mods: couldn't find a better thread to post this, please move this post if there is a more relevant thread.

Woah! Amazing video bro. Thanks for sharing.

I was a little concerned though at the way he passed the cyclist and how close ..... seeing as I am a cyclist now.

Hi folks, I am planning to pick a pre owned(May 2014) ABS variant with 11k on odo. As far as i have followed the CBR 250r in india what i have learned is there were issues with some 2011 bikes. Are their any peculiar issues or things i need to check with this? Secondly does 1.05 lacs sound good for the bike?

I personally find it odd that someone is selling the ABS variant for 1.05L. Most people sell the non-ABS variant for about that much. But then again, the on-road price of the ABS in Delhi is under 2L if I'm not mistaken. Do check for accidents and a service history.
