Don't laugh. I've actually said that to some people. You wouldn't believe the looks on their faces. The CBR250R is a great bike. I just thought it was a little too heavy at 367lbs wet (ABS version) for a 250 single - considering the curb weight of a CBR600RR is only about 48lbs more. My WR250R is around 299lbs wet. The CBR250R handles well, but it just wasn't as flickable at the CBR150R either. It weighed 65 lbs more than the 150R too. Granted - it was wayyy faster. But I've also invested lots more in the 150R. Still - I had to sell two bikes, so I reluctantly parted with the 2011 CBR250R and the 2009 CBR125R. As it stands - I'm curious to see what Yamaha does with its rumoured YZF-R250.
