It's a Dream for a wannabe biker

AdvantagesCheap, Cheap, Cheap, low maintenance

Disadvantages250cc, once people buy them, they usually keep them

"Yep the old 250 Superdream really is ideal for a new biker. If you have just passed the DAS or want to return to biking after an absence you couldn't do much better. Very cheap, both to buy and run, and insurance companies like them as well it will not matter that much when(?) you drop it or fall off! The bike is taller than most 250cc bikes, giving it the 'feel' of a bigger bike, so when you eventually transfer to a 600 or above it will not feel ..." Read review

Can't have too much of a good thing

AdvantagesEconomical, easy to work on, bounces well

The Humble Superdream

AdvantagesCheap, good for a 250

DisadvantagesThey're beginning to age..........

People who own them swear by them, literally at times, but they really are reliable. Things that tend to go wrong include electrics and rust penetration, they really do rust. Spares are impecably cheap to buy, things like tyres about 20.00 each, and used ..." Read review

Once a Teenagers Dream

Advantages'Tall' so good for tall boy

Disadvantagesthrashed bangers now

"...counties mad laws. This the Honda 250 Dream machine was introduced in a fanfare of publicity to an unsuspecting public. A shock replacement for the previous 250 Dream machine so ugly no teenager wanted it so replaced after only 1 year. This bike was designed for teenagers back in the days when L plates allowed you to drive a 249cc machine for as long as you liked and as much as you liked. It has an upright riding position quite comfortable over ..." Read review

Honda Superdream CB250N, a dream machine



"...are not expensive and with Honda reliablilty built in you can't lose. In my opinion, this is a fantastic first bike after passing the bike test. It has a big enough engine to give you the power you want and the speed you need to keep up with traffic whilst letting you continue learning to ride and getting road miles under your belt. ..."
