Oook so preeettty much Honda just came out with a bike that is absolutly pointless. I mean seriously. If Honda wanted to cut into the ninja 250 market they should have atleast come up with something that would atleast keep up with freeway traffic. At freeway speeds this motor is prolly gonna be screaming. No good

Everyone has to start somewhere. Manageable power deliver and updated styling are probably quite attractive for first time buyers.

While I agree. And I can't believe I'm saying this. I'd rather buy the kawi. Because it is going to be the all around smarter option

In other countries such as Australia you can't just go buy a 600 or 1000 you have to start on a 250 and work your way up. They don't just sell bikes in the US market. I guess maybe that's a reason to make it. I've heard of people in Australia buying 250s and keeping them in the garage for a year then selling it and getting a 600.

hmmm, 15 pounds lighter than the Kawi 250. That has potential for a great Formula 4 racer.

To an extent, I kinda support that. cause then we get super cool bikes like this little 125'er

125 duke 90 left 01

And people learn how to safely ride a bike instead of killing themselves on a busa

True. Unless they put the bike in the Garage and then go get the busa. If I was going to get a trackbike I think a 250 would be a great bike to learn how to get the most out of a bike. That Duke is awesome. Never seen that before.
