1990 Honda CBR250R
Excellent first bike to learn how to ride and maintain
First bike, treated well throughout its life.
* Front fork seals needed replacing pretty soon after I bought it.
* New chain and sprockets at 55,000kms.
No other (or major) problems. The bike is serviced regularly. Always starts first kick - barely need choke most of the time. Responds well and stops effectively. Excellent in traffic, especially if you intend to lane split.
Servicing and parts can be more $ than you'd initially expect, because a lot of the CBR250R's are grey imports into Australia.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
