The only problem with a 250 is that it will be scary worthless on the real highway, where a decent CBR600 that hasn't been crashed, wouldn't.

Me and the Honda CBR 230L resemble that!  Decent CBR 600 would be worthy.

Has anyone got one of those airbag jackets either Hit-Air or another brand? Do they actually work?

never buy less then 500cc if you only ride on roads

post #126 of 389

Agreed. But I might bump that up to a 650 out of experience.

This is me on my 2008 KTM 200 XC in April 2010.  It's a ROCKET.

I would drop a zero from that figure.

500cc is the LOWEST I'd go for a person who tends to use highways. You can keep up, but if you need the omph to get out of a tricky situation you may not have it. On a 250 I'd be terrified to go on the highway lol.

Thanks everyone for the insight.  I'm looking at getting a cbr 600 (f4i) as soon as I have the money. I really do appreciate the insight. Thanks again

This is the highway I drive daily, perfect for a WR.  Agility and visibility, not omph, is required.
