Getting rid of the silver pieces was certainly a good move.
I had the black silver and guickly swapped out the silver pieces for black and painted the rims and exhaust cover almost 2 years ago when I bought it. It's good to see that they copied my style.
I wonder if these new models have the 5-6k rpm faring buzz that comes from engine vibes at this range. I would guess so.
I think that when they remodel the CBR250 in a year or two we will see the multi-layered farings gone in place of a 3 piece set up like the CBR500. Just too much plastic friction points for a 250 single cylinder not to cause harmonics.
