Single Cylinder Fun

The 250cc sport market over the last few years has been dominated by Kawasaki and Hyosung and this new motorcycle should wake up the competition. The CBR250R is light weight single cylinder water cooled fun motorcycle ready to take to the road.

The seat height of 30.5 inches makes the motorcycle friendlier to the entry level rider by allowing both feet to be squarely planted on the ground. Throw your leg over the seat you will notice that this motorcycle has a thin profile and just feels right. Press the start button and bring the single cylinder fuel injected engine to life and you are ready for the road.

An option not seen in bikes of this size is the option for an Anti-lock Brake System, ABS helps you cope with unanticipated challenges and stop with added confidence. You also have your choice of colors black or a red silver combination to finish off the motorcycle.
