2012 HRC Honda NSF250R Bike Going Stateside

Launched a couple of months ago, the new Moto3 contender from Honda is making its way through to the United States, the company’s North American division confirmed today. The NSF250R will be included in American Honda's 2012 racing contingency program with levels of awards similar to those granted to racers competing on CBR models.

Complete contingency payout details will follow with the 2012 contingency program announcement. The company says the NSF250R will be made available to all Honda motorcycle dealers who wish to become an authorized NSF250R dealer, and delivery is estimated for February 2012.

However, dealers will only be able to place orders up to the cutoff date of September 2, 2011, so riders planning to purchase an NSF250R will need to visit their dealer before that date to place an order. MSRP for the NSF250R has been established at $28,599.

"This is a great opportunity for people who want to start road racing with a full-on track bike,"
said Keith Dowdle, Assistant Manager Honda Riders Club of America (HRCA). "Now riders have the option of buying a purpose-built race-ready motorcycle right out of the box, as an alternative to modifying a street bike—all at a reasonable price. Just as off-road riders can purchase and race one of our full-on CRF450R or CRF250R motocross bikes, now road racers have the means to buy a race-ready track bike."

In 2012, this globally distributed model will also be legal in the USGPRU Moto 3 and WERA Motorcycle Road Racing classes in the USA, as well as in other local racing events.
