The CL250 was a popular alternative to the CB250 in the States, but had limited appeal elsewhere. As the model developed into the 80's it lost it's way as more specialized trail bikes hit the road in the form of early supermotards. I owned a little white one as above in 1988, and it was a joy to ride around town. Owned a more modern Honda SPADA as well, and preferred riding the CL despite it's humble power. Eventually traded them both for a TDM850.
