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:
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.
