Great bike for a first timer and for commuting. I've wanted one since they came out. The Ninja (in the US) isn't EFI and this bike is. I've come to hate carbs and chokes. Even though I ride a 1000, I still want that 250 as a daily runner just for the fuel savings alone! I'm surprised it was that cheap in Hawaii. Here? They are asking full MSRP and by the time you get to the OTD price, it's over $5k!!!

not yet, i called today to see what the next course starts, of course no call back....

Great choice for a first bike ! Light and easy to learn on.Just remember to respect it..or it'll teach you things you never thought you'd learn..I learned to fly on my first bike ( deer about 55 mph )

Honda's been making small sportbikes for quite a while, they just didn't import them. They make a nice little CBR150 in Thailand for example.

The CRB250 gets great reviews and should keep you happy for a while. I've actually thought about picking up one to play with around town.
