Bump the 250L to 300 and you're getting somewhere Honda.

Call me crazy, but there is a substantial difference in fit/finish between the Thailand Hondas, and the Japanese Hondas. Especially the random aluminum castings used throughout.

well idk about all the bikes they are building there, but this one does have some downmarket bits on it being its a low cost model. built to a lower price point we don't expect to see upgraded componentry and the highest aesthetic quality

but for what it is, "it is what it is," as they say. and it would seem to be a well made, quality bike with an affordable price tag. simple simon. its "a Honda" no matter where it was built, and its a little inexpensive one a rider can most likely beat to hell and keep on goin' 'til the damn thing rusts out. that would seem a good deal for a cool little bike

Based on my Ninja 300 experiences, come back in around 10k miles and you'll know damn well how they did it.

well based on my made in China elite110 experience with 38k+ miles and crossing the country twice in 5weeks covering 10k+ miles Honda does great. Fact is Honda quality is Honda quality doesn't matter where it is made. Of the four japanese brand Honda overall has the highest quality.

Yeah, many tell themselves that. The CBR250 might as well have been built on the same assembly line as the Ninja 300, (and it might have been).

Most of it looks close enough to be interchangeable, and that is not a compliment.

So far the engine has held together, maybe they used Japanese bearings in that at least?

Outsourcing is outsourcing no matter what decal they slap on the tank.
