2005 Honda CBX250 from South Africa
Fun, functional, reliable
Nothing major, jerked at steady throttle, but cleaned carb, air box/filter, adjusted spark plug, checked valve clearance and running smooth now.
The seat gets hard after 60 kms riding.
Slightly underpowered. A 300cc motor would be awesome I think.
I wrote a review on my Twister a week after I bought it in October 2011 (my first bike, but have ridden before). Had the bike about 4 months now, and she's been real good to me.
I do a lot of city riding, and this is where it excels. It's a great commuter, as it turns and corners well, and has enough power to keep you ahead of the congestion.
I service the bike myself, as it's easy to work on. Only trouble is the short service intervals. She handles better with a 130/80 at the rear, Pilot Activs.
I'm really impressed with the bike, I love mine, once again, super fun ride and good looking too.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
