1978-79, 249cc OHC twin, 27hp, 80mph, 55mpg, 400lbs

What to Expect

Podgy twin with strong three valve heads, self-destruct chain driven balancer and gutless motor. Handles okay on newish suspension but top heavy feel intensified when they wear out. Quick corrode exhaust, front disc (use Dunlopads) and paint. The odd one did 50,000 miles but few left now. HONDA CB250N 1979-83, 249cc OHC twin, 28hp, 90mph, 50mpg, 380lbs Similar motor to the CB250T Dream, the Superdream had Euro style and a hotter engine, with same balancer and suspension demise. The Superdream tended to run well to 30,000 miles, giving the impression of good build quality, but hiding the fact that between 40 and 50,000 miles built in obsolescence ruled, the whole bike disintegrating quickly.
