    It's any unique bike not like other brands. I have been riding this bike for around 3 yrs n completed 40000 km and above, till now i haven't got any engine related issues. The seat is absolutely good for long journeys and the torque is damn awesome. Keeping aside of all, honda cbr 250r is an awesome bike and worth buying it.And more over compared to other bike like r15, duke, rc, ..Etc i prefer cbr250r maybe it initial pick it low compared to ktm but in between the ride it gives an awesome pick up, like ("drop a gear and disappear" quote) anything.The pros: Handling, breaking system, Cons: Spares are not available every where, some times even in showroom,needed to wait for ordered parts like around 30 days maybe more. Some time difficult to handle in traffic mostly in 1st gear cause, it jumps even though releasing small amount of clutch.

    It's the perfect bike for daily commutes and the occasional weekend ride. It's very smooth and it get smoother with the engine seasoning well, hasn't given any troubles whatsoever.Honda's acclaimed reliability can also be trusted on this.Just their service centres in bangalore needs to be worked on as the people there can't communicate to their customers.

    Late in 2014, i wanted to shift from driving a car to riding a bike. I wasn’t looking for the regular bikes but wanted something i could have some fun with. Pashankar at jm road, pune were very professional and got me the bike on time with finance!The honda 250r fit the bill nicely, with enough power to keep me interested as well as safe! i could push the bike to the limit without any drama thanks to its great braking performance. It’s smooth and vibration free. Great for daily commutes as well as long rides.Needless to say the bike is a head turner, a beauty!Servicing is hassle free, doesn’t cost a bomb! Can’t really find any issues with this bike!

    I bought the honda cbr250r on 2013 and i have been using this bike for daily commute till now, the bike was delivered to me within 4 days of booking. Bike has a very smooth refined engine, very good for everyday commute except at times you might feel the heat of the engine in a long time bumper to bumper traffic. In city you can cruise around from 40 to 70 kmph and in highways you can drag your bike in 130+ kmph. No buzzing or hissing sound. Very good pickup and mid range. Servicing and maintenance goes hand to hand and its pretty low compared to other bikes in this class.

    Pros:

    Very good looking bike - repsol edition.

    Very smooth engine and good brakes

    Less maintenance and service cost

    Around 35 kmpl , which is very good for its class.

    Cons:

    Might feel the heat of the engine in your legs sometimes

    Hey guys i had fallen in love with this beauty the day i saw it first so i decided i will own this one day.Finally the day came i bought a 2012 cbr250r abs red colour.(clocked 45k kms)

    Performance- too good n best in class. No weird engine sound at high speed smooth speeds great stability at high speeds (top speed clocked by me 110 kmph)

    Gearbox- the best gear box no need of slipper clutch gear shifting is butter smooth only its little difficult to find neutral else is smooth and precise.No false gear.

    Build quality- build quality is top notch every part made is heavy and long lasting no rattling sound from any of the parts.

    Tyres- they are pretty good didn't done any off-roading but daily use and some rainy weather its good no complain about it.

    Maintenance- maintenance is little higher compared to other 200cc-250cc bikes.

    Ride-feels really powerful every shift there is power in traffic needs more gear shift but its ok for me at highway the ride is planted as well as thrilling.

    Parts- parts availability is not much good some parts are not available when needed order has to be placed it took 2 -3 days fr the parts no modification done its all stock till date.

    (changed

    Rear brake hydraulic kit 1300

    Front disc 3000

    Footrest 110

    Taillights 260 per light

    Tyres 8000

    Handlebar 800 right side)(thane)

    Mileage- for a 250cc bike mileage is decent i got 28 kmpl it included both city and highway (mostly my commute is in city)

    Comfort-front seat is very comfortable and back seat also comfortable only one issue with back seat is when brakes are applied normally the passenger tends to slip over to front . I guess seat cover will resolve this issue but churning normal and high speed rides both seats are comfortable no pain in back or wrist.

    Brakes- abs does its job well brakes are very good no slip issues applies well when needed and in time.

    The overall experience of bike is damn awesome people stare at bike even if its been 5 years (2012-present) unique and feels proud to own such beauty

    Advice to honda if you are listening please make the spare parts available and have more no. of cbr technician (manpada-thane)

    Give a little more attention to cbr owners.

    Hi all..!

    I bought my cbr250r in jan 2017. At that time i had rc200 ,classic 350 and dominar 400 in my mind. After seeing this machine with my friend i took it from him and had a spin.. We kinda feel nervous while handling others bikes but after hopping onto this machine and starting it.. A unique feeling, mixed with confidence filled me up.

    I've never felt this secure and planted on a motorcycle in my life.. After riding a couple of kms i was blown away with its performance..

    I ran home immediately and went to honda showroom and booked the repsol version.

    Its performance is quite top notch, the best you can get from a 250cc bike of its price.

    Coming to the looks:

    I always feel r15's twin headlight setup is better. But after owning this machine i'm ok with how it looks -

    calm,classy and matured..! handling is pretty great and brakes do their job great, had an abs as well as cbs' advantage.

    Reason for not choosing...

    Rc200: short gearings, ergonomics, lack of comfort.

    Re350: worse handling, misses fuel gauge, can't maintain even an top speed of 90kmph because no one can get enough confidence on an royal enfield.

    D 400: its the toughest because it has everything. In my case wind blast on highway was its rival. And cbr250r has a slight good fuel economy over this.

    Servicing cost was decent around rs. 2000/-

    Things that should have been better :

    Speedometer was of 1900's

    A decent upgrade in power is required as it got a plenty of competition in today's market.

    Its faring,cosmetic changes would be welcomed...!

    i had booked the re continental gt and the next day purchased the cbr250r as i couldn't. The bike was delivered in a day's time and i haven't regretted a single day till now.

    riding experience & 3. Details about looks, performance etc:

    Just 37500 kms young while writing this review, came back from 3800 kms trip. This beast can carry two people and their luggage without braking your bank and your back all day long at triple digit speeds.

    Servicing and maintenance: mostly hassle-free experience, had issues with some part but in about 6 months ,such issues are negligible.

    Service cost around rs 1500-2500 for each service.

    Service interval: 6000kms(but i know people who have run about 10k kms without servicing).

    Pros and cons:

    Bullet-proof engine.

    Comfortable in city traffic and out on the highway at triple digit speeds without breaking a sweat.

    Incredible build quality: had to leap on crater-size potholes at high speeds without issue(not that i will suggest to do often). Great plastic quality,fairing can survive some pretty heavy falls.

    Pretty good ground clearance and torque of engine can help conquer all speed breakers and little-bit of off-roading.

    Great spread of headlight for night rides and over-average wind protection

    Although no mechanical update in 5 years,still can keep up with newbies in the market today.
