I know exactly why the put them on the 250 - it's a beginner bike and some front is better than no front. But for riders with some experience and who prefer to run the bias to the front anyway, it's a crap system. Better is the BMW system that reverses it and allows the rear to be the independent brake. This only makes sense for smart riders, though. For the unwashed masses who think the front will put them over the bars, Honda is helping them to stay upright and actually stop.
