Here are some photos.
I took the bike for a 45 mile run and tested it off road first to see how it behaved on rough ground and it coped with it easily. It's a very smooth ride over bad roads, the long travel suspension soaks up any bumps and anything but big holes.
The only real issue I had with the bike was the vibrations (I've been told that the CBR250R has the same problem - they share the same engine), and the small fuel tank. I got 38.31km/l (75miles per Imperial gallon not to be confused with US gallon which is smaller) The milage would have been better but I did quite a bit of higher speed riding at 65-70mph and some riding up hills at similar speeds. Probably Hondas claimed 94mpg could be achieved quite easily if you're not in a hurry.
I didn't mention the tyres before. I was pleasantly surprised by their grip on normal road surfaces in the dry, I don't know how they would work in wet weather. Off road they're fine for a dual purpose tyre.
You can see my KTM 125 Duke next to the CRF for comparison. I put some soft panniers on for some of the pics so you can see how the sit on the bike - I should have tightened the straps up a bit to make them fit better but you get an idea of how they sit against the exhaust.
Some people find the strap over the seat causes discomfort - this can be unclipped and stored in the lockable tool compartment on the left of the bike just below the seat (see pic) for use when carrying a passenger. There are four pins to tie down luggage over the seat/rear fender.
A centre stand would be useful.
I just hope Honda choose to offer the CRF for sale in India, it would be a really great success.
