    Hi All,

                Beware of Bread, don't say I didn't warn you!
                More than 98 percent of convicted criminals are bread eaters !
                Statistics show that more than 75 % of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread !
                Bread is known to be extremely addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water, actually begged for bread after just two days !
                Bread has been proven to kill. Scientists have now uncovered alarming evidence that 100% of the people who eat bread will eventually die !

                  Congratulations to everyone! Superb Pics!

                  One fact its a weird and negligible one but still a fact, CBR250R is 3rd bike in India to have "Bybre" Disc brake installed.

                  First one is Pulser220, the second one is Yamaha SZ-R (Yes! It has Bybre as front disc ) and Third one is Honda CBR250R!

                    @Stig is it 26.2 bhp ? What does owners manual says? What about run in period as per manual(km/hr to be maintained)?

                              congrats guys!

                              of the three colour options available here... i prefer the silver.

                              i've got my eye on a few CBR250R "spares"...

                              would really appreciate it if you guys know if spares are available... and where too.

                              want a rear rim & that swingarm.
