We've tested the Honda CBR250R against the Kawasaki Ninja 250R before, but this time we scrap the headlights and blinkers at the track to see how these entry sportbikes perform on a race course.

these baby models are getting heavy too. approaching 400 lb. mark with 20 something hp is not good for the power to weight ratio. could be ok for short little jockeys that weigh a buck i suppose. the last baby ninja was closer to 300 lb. and produced more power.

also why not throw this korean baby into the mix?

How many times have we talked about the virtues of being able to wring out a small bike and having a ball when almost nobody can take their litre bie (or 600) anywhere near the edge of the envelope? There's lots to like about both of these 'babies' but the CBR needs more muscle. I realize these bikes aren't about raw oomph, but if there's a market benchmark, then the manufacturer really should equal that mark if not better it some. Honda's real good at being the best 'second best' latelylol lol


I never get lost, there's always lots of people telling me where to go!
