2011 Honda CBR250RA

It's finally here! The bike Canadian riders have been clamouring for since the introduction of the wildly popular CBR125R has finally been unveiled to the world. And it's a stunner. The all-new Honda CBR250RA is far removed from the sort of cut-corners, parts-bin special often found in this class – it's a true Honda sportbike loaded with sophisticated engineering and high-tech components. Check out the high-revving DOHC, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine with its impressive power-to-weight ratio, the sensuous VFR1200-style bodywork, and the sporty chassis with Honda's Combined Braking System with ABS – the first Anti-lock Braking System ever on a bike in this class. It's all top-shelf stuff. Sure, the CBR250RA's light weight, user-friendly operation and comfortable size make it perfect for novice riders or those stepping up from the CBR125R. But if experienced riders overlook the CBR250RA because they think engine displacement is the sole measure of a motorcycle's appeal, then they'll be missing out on a bike that's destined to redefine fun on two wheels.
