I would like to buy an used Honda CBR250R with ABS brakes.
I am able to pay $3000, cash or cashiers check.

If you have cbr250r sell it to me and then go back to Honda and buy newly released CBR500R for a couple of thousands more!

I prefer non-black but I would still take it.

thanks!

Honestly, on a 250, I don't see ABS being critical.

ABS brakes will be mandatory in Europe soon, for a reason.


Here is a quote from Consumer Reports:

'ABS is commonly offered on large, expensive models, but it has been spreading to several entry-level sport bikes and midsized bikes, adding at least $500 to the cost. ABS is can be money well spent. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has reported that motorcycles equipped with antilock brakes are 37 percent less likely to be involved in a fatal crash than models without ABS.
f4i looks good, but it would be too much of a bike for me.

I am buying my first bike, I would like to start small (and then make a huge upgrade in a year or two!)

Can't help but wonder if those stats take into account the number of Non-ABS bikes on the road vs. bikes with ABS.
I'm sure there are much more without.

Not trying to influence your decision by any means, but I don't always trust statistics without knowing how they were made.

This.

The choice is yours- but I'd prefer to learn without abs. You really aren't going to get into trouble on the 250 anyways. Great starter bike

I just don't think the ABS is what going to make you a good rider or keeping you for messing up. As matter fact I see it all the time on the track the 250's passing the big bikes on the outside of the turn just because they don't need to brake. Here is a great video to show you what I'm talking about. The rider just shifted down a gear or two and rolled the throttle wide open thru the turns...

I need advice.
I found black cbr250r ABS on sale in San Antonio with 3600 miles on it.
here:
https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/mcy/3863848450.html

The bike is repainted in black, which I don't like. No Honda signs or anything is visible on the pictures.

Can that be the sign of some unknown abuse, or is there anything else that I should be concerned with repainted bike?
I just cannot understand why somebody would do such thing

either it's been dropped or it was owned by someone dumb enough to ruin a perfectly good factory job.

I'd 100% skip that bike

for street use, abs won't hurt...I am not sure it would help any, but it won't hurt.
I would avoid the one you found and look for another...nice bike though... and i disagree with the one who said you will out grow it...never happen...anyone who tells me they outgrew a 250 just told me they never learned to ride it...if you ride it right, it will provide excitement no matter how many years you have been riding...
I own 10 bikes at the moment and i wish i had a 250 in the stable...gotta make parking room before that can happpen.

Thanks Obed, exactly my thoughts!
My plan is to keep 250 for some time and then eventually move up.

I don't understand zx-dominance comment that 250 does not need abs. What does displacement have to do with tire skidding in emergency situation. Oh well.

My point is that your statistics are skewed.

PEOPLE who buy motorcycles with ABS are less likely to ride in a manner which puts them at risk for a fatal crash, the "37%" statistic has little to do with the bikes... IMO. Thats like saying "safety concious riders are 37% less likely to be involved in a fatal crash" ... Duh. Just a wild estimate, but I'd say less than 10% of accidents are caused by Locking up the tires. People get scared and run wide in turns, they have cars pull out in front of them and get hit, etc. Yes abs will keep you from locking your tires up... But it will NOT keep your bike upright, and will NOT prevent 90% of accidents.

I am fine with 10% as you say. Good enough.

I needed it only once in last ten years with my Dodge Neon, the abs probably saved my life.

One last thing:

There are ways to stop quickly without grabbing the brake as hard as you can. This would be the riding skill these guys are talking about.

Also- there are times when you want to lock the wheel and dump it, say when you find yourself Headed for a wall/ditch/etc, or someone is going to pull and and hit you and to need to bail.

I'm not telling you abs is a bad thing, just letting you know that cars and bikes benefit very differently from abs
