2008 Honda Nighthawk 250 CB250

The Nighthawk is where full-size motorcycling meets small-sized budgets in a lightweight, easy-to-use package.

Lightweight. Dependable. Performance packed. And as easy on your wallet as it is to use. That's the Nighthawk®, our 250cc all-arounder that goes way beyond what typically defines an intro bike (although it is peerless in that respect). Whether a total beginner or a seasoned vet, the Nighthawk offers every rider the perfect combination of performance, Honda reliability, and perhaps best of all, value.
