Price: Auction, $5,000 starting bid
So I will just say this right up front. This is a killer bike, that is truly rare, but is not exactly represented here very well. There is barely any description on the bike, the mileage is listed as strictly 5,000 (hard to imagine it’s 5,000 on the dot) and really not a lot of pictures. Anyone who keeps an eye on RSBFS would probably know that a bike like this would usually come with a great bit of detail.
Well, this one doesn’t. But, because the CBR250RR is such a monster ride, I decided to write it up anyway. So I guess approach with caution, but if it does work out, well then, welcome to your new awesome ride.
Here’s the pictures-
Here’s the brief, make that very brief, description from the seller-
Honda CBR250RR. Excellent condition. Only 5000 miles. Clean IL title.
So really not much there. But if you want a little more about the CBR250RR, here it is: This is a four stroke 16v in-line four cylinder. Yep, not a two stroke as many bikes in the 250 world are (NSR, TZR, for example). So this thing is is going to scream. And at a claimed 40 bhp at 14,500 rpm and roughly 315 lbs in weight, this will be a fun ride.
There you have it. I love the idea of a four stroke in-line four. I love CBR’s. I would suspect you would want to get much more history on this bike to be comfortable purchasing as I know I would. But these don’t pop up all that often, so it’s always good to have an opportunity. If you feel like digging a little more on this machine, check out this auction!
