Default Re: Honda CBR 250R : Answers to some commonly asked questions

Is CBR 250ABS an upgrade from Pulsar AS200 in its current avatar? I like touring more than anything else. My pulsar has aged considerably in 3.5 years, hence I am considering CBR250 and Dominar, unable to decide.

No I don't have; poor low end is a relative term & hence I would say, motorcycles capable of moving without throttle when the clutch is released properly vs moving with the aid of throttle. The latter ones may fit your definition.

I would suggest the Dominar. Nothing against the CBR 250 but Dominar 2019 has all the goodies and safety features at a reasonable price point.

Better yet try the new 300 from Honda.

Couldn't agree more. While I haven't had many instances of stalling the bike, the constant gear-changes needed due to the poor low-end of the CBR is probably the only irritating part of an otherwise nice ownership experience for me.
