This post I am replying to says that new Honda CBR 250 will cost 100,000 B for the regular model and 115,000 for the ABS model. WRONG - - major wrong ! At Central World I spoke with a man who appeared to be a senior sort of guy who was very clear that the price was 115,000 for the regular model and 130,000 B for the one with ABS brakes. He said they were available now but the ABS model would be in the stores about mid-February.
You can imagine my surprise when I waited till Feb 15th, walked into a big Honda dealer ready to pull out my credit card and ride away - but the bastards insisted the price is 130,000 B for the regular brakes and 160,000 B for the one with ABS brakes. They didn't hint at any negotiation. That was the price according to them! And that is a huge huge increase over what I expected to pay!! I'm angry.
A proper spokesman from Honda should explain this.
I took a long walk to get to this big Honda dealer, I went past a Platinum dealer and they have a 200cc model in a cafe racer style not unlike the Honda or Kawasaki for only 57,000 B - which may even be negotiable - and I think I'll give that a serious look.
I am surprised also, because here in Motorcycle Prices it says for the 250 CBR a price of 100,500 B without and 115,500 B with ABS. A official dealer here in CNX told me the price is 115,000 B without and 130,000 B with ABS (smaller dealers here sell it for 114,000 B without and 129,000 B with ABS). After that I went to Kawasaki and bought the 250R Ninja for 147,500 B plus some more things for at least round about 25,000 B.
