I have had this bike for about 3 weeks now and love it. It had 3500 miles on it when I bought it. It now has just a little over 4000 miles on it. I mainly bought this bike for driving back and forth to work (all city driving). As this is my very first motorcycle, I wanted something small and easy to learn on (and cheap). I could not have picked a better bike. I LOVE THIS BIKE. Not only is this bike great for around town driving, it also does well on main roads at speeds of 55-60. This bike is not a speed demon by any means, but it will do 75-80 if needed. And it is light (300 pounds) which makes it easy to learn how to move it around at speed. It is a smooth ride as long as you don't ride it for more than an hour or so at a time. And the best part: 70mpg on average. And another plus is that being only a 250, insurance is dirt cheap for a motorcycle. I only have two complaints in 500 miles. One is that it takes a long time for this bike to warm up from cold so the choke can be opened. Some mornings, I have to ride it for a few miles to be able to turn off the choke with out it stalling out. And the other is the neutral can sometimes be a pain in the you-know-what to find. Sometimes I have to put almost all of my weight on the shifter to get it down into first just to get it up into neutral. Other than those two small things, this is a great bike and I would tell anybody that is just starting out to look hard at this bike.

Solid, reliable, functional, delivers the goods. An ideal local commuter or low-time rider's bike. Fit and finish is of course top-shelf. About 70mpg average; will cruise all day at 55mph. Not meant to be an over the road long distance machine, but in its niche there is nothing that will give you more confidence.

Okay, I'm a bit biased in my praise of the 250 Nighthawk, I've owned three of them. Other than a halogen headlight upgrade in 2001, and a change in the fork oil drain procedure, the bike has remained the same for 14 years. Honda got it right the first time, so why mess with a good thing? As a daily commuter, it is comfortable and as reliable as daylight. As a weekend play bike, it will not disappoint while touring the backroads. The bike handles predictably, and the moderate power will keep you out of trouble. Being of small displacement it's not a crotch rocket, but it has enough muscle to cruise all day at 65mph, or run up to 80mph wide open. Fit a windshield, or the Rentec rack, a tankbag, or saddlebags, it accepts all. If you are looking for a basic, well engineered bike that has a great grin factor, and is easy and inexpensive to maintain, you found it. Less is more.

I have owned this bike for about 6 months and am very happy with it. It was my first bike after spending most of my life wanting to ride a motorcycle. I took the MSF class and bought this bike because I thought a smaller engine would be great to start out on. The styling is really nice because it is a perfect combination of cruiser and sport bike. I have gotten it up to 85 miles/hour and it ran smooth. The only downside to this bike, so far, is that it is not comfortable for longer rides. I'm 5'10" and find my legs cramping on trips over 40 minutes. I put my wife on the back and she gets cramped after 20 minutes. We put the backrest on, and I bought an aftermarket fairing on. If you plan on doing any freeway riding, a fairing IS A MUST. Before the fairing, the wind would blow me around, and my body acted like a sail; the wind trying to pull me off the bike. With the fairing, I tuck right behind it and the bike is hardly affected by the wind at all. Very low maintenance; I'm very happy with this bike. It is small enough to lane split easily and confidently. I believe I picked the perfect bike for my needs. This bike has given me so many miles of pleaure, I'm ready to upgrade to an ST1100 and do some cross country touring! Hard to find aftermarket parts. Ebay has been pretty good. Hondaline is way too expensive.
