    Maybe I´m blind, but I could´nt find a HONDA thread down in the brands. Wanted to look, if there are any infos about the new CRF 250. Is it my age or is there realy non?

    Absolutely!

    And I bet one CBR250 lasts longer than some of the other manufacturers total sales of their entire range.

    well, in that case you may include most made motorbikes as many of todays Bikes have chinese stuff mounted.....i am sure even the baby-cbr has some parts "made in china" mounted, no? :)

    There's a world of a difference between "Made In China" and "Chinese stuff"!

    And what I didn´t knew before. A 200cc Phantom is a small bike and a 250cc CBR a big bike. What´s about my CRF-230 in Germany? Small or big? I hope small. I´m a small bike fan.

    How about a generic "Crap bikes" section? No judgement... :p

    The Honda bike thread will come soon. David said so. Right, David?

    The CRF250 will be released in a big Honda event on Tuesday Jan 10th. Along with 6 other Honda bikes! Think a new PCX, a 125cc CB, etc. Can't wait to get one...

    You got my drift, nikster!

    Funny that Honda's big bike thread is one of the last to be created.

    "The CRF 250 will be released on Jan 10" - I assume you're talking about the "L" (street legal enduro) version?
    Hopefully it'll be available here.

    I always thought street legal enduros were "XR...L" and CRs were two-stroke offroad bikes, but according to wikipedia "The CRF line was launched in 2002 as a successor to the Honda XR series." The "CRF...R" and "CRF...X" designation is for offroad, the "CRF...L" is for street legal dual sport bikes (enduros). The R and X offroad versions feature a very potent 38hp engine; the L enduro makes only around 24 horses. So it depends on the last letter if it's a beginner's enduro or an offroad beast.

    Interestingly there are still XRs available - "As of 2008, the XR series includes the liquid-cooled 650R and the air-cooled 650L. The 650L has electric-start and is modeled after the old-school XR600/NX600."

    To make things more confusing the CRF230L is marketed as the XR230L outside the United States.

    Yeah the CRF250 (L or not no idea) is the street-legal, tamed-down, nice, hopefully cheap KLX250 competitor introduced at the tokyo motor show this year. Based on the CBR250 engine. Let's see at the end of the day, then we'll know more...
