Honda VTR250 2010

(Queensland Austraila)

So my new bike has arrived - I love it! It isn't scary and I can handle it easily. Very speedy and can't think why I would want some huge thing that I have to haul around. Maybe later when it comes to riding long distances I might like a bit more speed but 160km an hour is plenty surely - I can pass a truck with that and certainly wouldn't go any faster in my car so why compromise on lightness and agility in order to be a speed demon?

An Update
by: Kate

A year on and I still can't fault my Honda VTR250. On the highway she passed every test I found to throw at her. "Fudge" passes semi trucks, moves from 100 to 120 km/h easily and safely (was a bit shocked how easily actually) and has plenty of crazy left in the throttle after that. Yet she dawdles around the carpark looking for a park very patiently and has never looked like stalling. Looks good, feels great and was just as eager as me to be on her feet again after a small dropping episode - didn't even ruin her makeup. She runs on the sniff of an oily rag yet looks tough enough to have a bit of street cred - evidenced by the many looks she gets by males and females. She keeps up with the big boys on the road (to some surprised respect on trips). She runs up our 2km long busted gravel road like a dirtbike then sits on the bitumen like she owns it. Sigh.. no I don't work for Honda - this bike is special and has warmed her way into my heart.

I Agree

Our little Ninja's can go a 110km per hour not that I do but when we first got it, my hubby took it for a highway drive. Our little bikes are just awesome. Enjoy your beauty of a bike, it's not how fast she goes but how well you control her and enjoying the ride:) Safe riding!!

Enjoy your Honda! It's not always about speed, and how fast is too fast is different for everyone! I'm not out to outrun every vehicle in front of me; my "flights" are more leisurely and for MY pleasure!! Again, ENJOY!

I'm not familiar with your bike. But I will tell you, I owned a V-Star 650. Rode it to Sturgis, mountains etc. One particular time I passed a truck heading up an incline. I got around the truck and maxed my power. That truck rode my tail and there was nothing I could do to get away from him. That's when I decided I wanted more power. I thought the 1100 V-Star would be too much weight for me. Not. It's all in the way the bike sits, how your body distributes the weight of the bike. Don't be afraid of a larger/heavier bike. You could have a hard time handling light weight bikes because of the style. Try the bike with more power. I guarantee you will love it..

I'm with ya on that.

I had to Google your bike and... Oh my, what a great looking bike! I wish they sold them here in the US, it looks like a little Ducati. Sweet.

Regarding speed and agility, I could not agree with you more. I have a small bike, a Ninja 250, and I love it for the same reasons you stated. I've yet to find a need to go 100mph, though I guess I can if I want to. Guess I'm just not that desperate for a speeding ticket.
