Honda has released a CRF based on the CBR engine. So no more CBF230, but you now have a CBF250L which uses the same mill from the CBR!

Its touted that Hero Moto Corp is licensed to use the engine from the CBR250r and wants to desperately get the product right. Would be interesting if they can make a great do or die product, especially considering whatever they do, still wont let them die! :P

Looks like we can expect a ZMA/ZMR upgrade on the cards...
And if I were to speculate, a bigger Impulse if the baby KTM does well...
I like 'em Naked.

My thoughts

Well i am sure the much needed changes i.e. monoshock, fatter rubber, open chain and better quality plastic:P
HH (no matter what i do i i cant forget that name) should give it decent looks (zmr was more of a last minute assembly if you ask me)
The riding position should change.. Hopefully price it right and get some respect in the performance segment..

Already? I'll likely be in the market in coming year, so exploring all the options. Though past experience with HH (now HMC) dealers has not been so good, and Honda's are supposedly worse.
The new Pulsar(s) , KTM200 , R-15 , Suzuki GW250 if/when it comes, CBR250R - things are looking interesting.
