CBR250RR review - Cycle Canada

Just thought women here may be interested in this tidbit.

The current March 2011 issue of Cycle Canada has a review of the CBR250RR written in part by an 18 year-old female who currently rides a Kawi 250 Ninja. Probably worth reading if you or someone you know is in the market for a small bike.

I also saw a review comparison of these two bikes somewhere on the web too. Cant remember where though. Google will find it I'm sure. The web review tries to make it sound like a mystery but it was very clear to me before reading the review that the Honda is underpowered for highway/freeway riding so for most people the Ninja is still the better bike because it has more horsepower and the design is proven and reliable, but you may have a reason to choose the Honda.

Here's the one I saw: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/9/9134/Mo ... -250R.aspx Also, Motorcycle Consumer News magazine is supposed to be doing a 3-way review of the Honda, Ninja 250, and the Hyosung GT250R in their April issue.

Gotta say, I sat on the Honda at the motorcycle show last month and was impressed by the build quality and light weight, and the bike was still rideable for a 6'1" guy, not cramped.
