New Honda CBR250R Hits ~100 MPH?

Posted: 25 Mar 2011 10:00 PM PDT

What’s up people? In the current economy, the trend is to go smaller. Case in point, the creation of Honda’s new CBR250RR, a single-cylinder bike with power output capped to just 26bhp.

Its main competitors are Kawasaki's Ninja 250R, Hyosung's capable GT250R, and even Yamaha's big-selling YZF125R.

In one test ride in Europe, one journalist has found that the Honda 250, in the short distance that was available, was able to manage an indicated 150kph, or 93.2mph.

And this wasn't flat out, either. Flapping waterproof jacket, headwind and slight uphill gradient killed any hope of and actual flat run. Rumors were that the rotund nature of the particular journalist’s physique prevented a more aerodynamic riding position as well.

We here, can’t wait to see the potential of the little CBR.
