Honda Drops Age Restrictions for CBR250R Racing Series
With so many European riders in the world series, it looks like the guys from across the pond figured things out: champions start early, and this now means that the 2013 Honda CBR250R Series is open for riders 13 to 25 and older than 25.
Even more, if a rider under 25 buys a new CBR250R, Honda will offer a certified racking kit worth $1,500 for free, upon proof of having raced in at least three SBK official events. For riders 25 and older, the racing kit is offered for half the price.
A deposit check is help by Honda in both cases and returned once proof for the said three races is provided. Failing to compete in at least three races will result in Honda cashing the check.
This program aims to bring up the number of riders involved in motorcycle racing and the number of race-specced bikes: "Honda recognizes the need to develop younger riders and, at the same time, recognizes that others above the previous age cap are also enthusiastic about racing the CBR250R," a Honda Canada official said.
