    160 speedo indicated. True speed ~148 kmph. Stay below 130 and you'll love it. Best cruising speed on an empty highway with good visibility on this bike is 90-110 kmph. You get decent average too.

    If you are hungry for more well:

    * This is a long list of Q&A posted by senior rider @aargee longtime ago related to Honda CBR 250R. Bare in mind, a few things may not remain relevant with 2012-13 model onwards however, it should give you a fare bit of idea about the vehicle you are planning to opt for.: Honda CBR 250R : Answers to some commonly asked questions - Team-BHP

    * Besides that all the senior riders and moderators from xbhp will always recommend you to go through the painstaking (or boring) process of reading all posts in the ownership thread of the Honda CBR250R on xbhp right from page one till the last page. It gives you a fair bit of idea about the product right from its launch to what niggling problems were found in the initial batches, how Honda retified the issues with the 2012 and later batches of CBR, how to identify the root cause of a problem etc. By the time you are done reading the ownership thread, you will have all the tools that you need to maintain, troubleshoot and hopefully at a later stage also contribute to the ownership thread on xbhp from your end. Homework/research before making a purchase decision always helps!

    * Hondas are typically known for reliability and this model is no different. People have crossed over 1.5 lakh kms on the odo of a CBR and are yet to replace their clutch plates.


    I sincerely hope that you are able to close in on a good deal and please do ensure to invest on good riding gears. Xbhp always puts stress on safe riding.


    Cheers,

    Dear Shv18,
    I have been constantly reading reviews on almost all sites, the fun part is that what ever link i click, i would have read it..But again, as you said it has given me a fair idea about the bike. The only thing that is holding me back is the price, which i am yet to get a clarity on. Once i am ok with it, you guys will be the first to know. Even some users have already expressed their interest too

    Many Thanks to all who have helped me with loads of info on CBR 250r. As it turns out, i am not able to get a positive response from the accounts head. I guess they are planning on breeding the CBR's

    So once again, if the CBR is not gonna work out, i had shortlisted Duke 200 and Pulsar 200NS and in a short distance the Apache rtr 180 ABS.

    Read so much about Duke and 200Ns. Many good and bad reviews for both the bike. But as a previous pulsar user(P180), does the chain sprocket sound exist in 200Ns too??? About Apache, heard it cant handle the power, hence vibration is high. I never really thought buying a bike would be this hard.

    About my preferences on bike:
    *Budget-1.5
    *Daily 45 km up and down
    *Occasional touring, and plans on long distance in near future
    *Mileage(40kmpl, is it too much to ask??) i am a 60's rider, saaaaane rider
    *maintenance should not be too harsh for the pocket

    I guess that all i can ask for right now. If there are any other options please do suggest

    Thanks Guys

    lol.. yes as you said lean frame... and yeah 160 on speedo with 7% error so ideally 148-150 ture speed however with my 80 kg frame i haven't anything more than 142 on GPS so 150's on speedo...

    If you are open to the idea of looking out for a used, second hand CBR i would recommend you to do so. Many of us, the moment we hear the word second hand, we have a tendency to look on the other side. Understandably because there is always a possibility you may get a dud piece for a lot of money spent if you don't know how to check things out properly. However, if you take a few nit bits from senior riders like @psr sir, believe me you will be the happiest of the lot. A good used condition CBR with under 10-12k on the odo at your place should be available in the market for 80k - 1.10 lkhs. You may further add 10k more to the budget say for TLC and brand new tires.

    As mentioned earlier, Hondas are known for reliability so a well looked after CBR shouldn't cost you that much to own and barring basic maintenance will not give you any trouble and 10k kms on the belt is nothing for this engine. So would suggest that you do take this into consideration before going ahead with making a purchase.
