Honda Ridgeline Recalled Because Car Wash Soap May Break It

Honda Ridgeline Recalled Because Car Wash Soap May Break It 106,683 trucks are potentially affected. With a simplified trim range, above average fuel efficiency, and a five-star overall vehicle safety score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Honda Ridgeline had a strong 2018 with more than 30,500 units delivered to customers. In fact, 2018 and 2017 were the truck’s two best-selling years in the last decade which is fantastic news for the Japanese automaker. Not everything is perfect, however, as the company will have to inspect 106,683 examples of the pickup for a potential fire risk.

The 1991 Honda CBR 250 RR (also known as the “MC22,” its Honda internal model designation) is a prime example of just how serious the Japanese OEMs were about the domestic market back then. While the styling shows a bit of age, a closer look at the bike reveals componentry that literally

Taking a time machine back to an era when racing was on everyone’s mind, especially in Japan

You may not think that a 250cc motorcycle can get around a racetrack quickly, but a screaming handful of 19,000-rpm four-cylinder CBR goodness from 1991 will change your mind.

Today’s small-displacement bikes are fantastic machines. They all pack a lot more performance than their size and looks would lead you to believe. And all at very reasonable prices. It’s no wonder that the 500cc-and-under category of motorcycles are sales leaders with nearly all the OEMs at the moment.

This is my current bike, pretty much the same thing as the kawasaki I had, inline four, 250cc, quad carbed, water cooled 4 stroke. It has a yoshimura trs

I decided to pull the yoshimura trs muffler off my MC22 for a bit, it sounds so good in person and damn its loud, the video really does not do it justice.

What if we told you we rode a similar 250cc motorcycle from 28 years ago that would lay waste to today’s 300cc machines? In both performance and build quality? You want some of what we’ve been smokin’, right?

Twenty-eight years is an awful long time in motorcycle years, especially bikes of the sporting category. In the not-too-distant past, not making some sort of model upgrade every two years doomed your latest and greatest model to the back shadows of the dealership floor to collect dust. And that’s exactly how the Japanese domestic market was in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

The overall styling may be a bit dated (the ice cube turn signals are a dead giveaway), but even then racebike engineering was filtering down to production bikes, like the integrated fairing intakes directing cool air to the airbox snorkel (remember, this was ’91, ram-air technology wasn’t in mass production yet).

I need to investigate why there was a flat spot around 12,000rpm in first. ill do a proper attempt at some point but this was a good bit of fun. I would say that was unofficially 5.6 seconds for accelerating 0-100km/h, 0-62mph. 1991 Honda CBR 250 RR MC22(L) 41,400km odometer reading.

Because of licensing restrictions, smaller-displacement machines like the 250cc category comprised the bulk of sales in Japan. Motorcycle racing was also reaching its peak of popularity in that country during that time, with races such as the Japanese Grand Prix and the 8 Hours of Suzuka drawing enormous crowds. Thus the hot sellers back then were race-replica bikes patterned after the machines competing in those events; the sales premise “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday” was never more apropos than in Japan during this period.

The 1991 Honda CBR250RR (also known as the “MC22,” its Honda internal model designation) is a prime example of just how serious the Japanese OEMs were about the domestic market back then. While the styling shows a bit of age, a closer look at the bike reveals componentry that literally shames anything in today’s small-displacement categories. The frame is a massive twin-spar aluminum unit with offset main spars suspending the engine below that allow fresh air intake runners (ram air technology hadn’t quite made it to production motorcycles yet) a direct shot at the airbox intake. The gull-wing swingarm (identical to the two-stroke NSR250…that’s a Japanese domestic market story for another day) has undoubted race-ready rigidity while allowing the exhaust to be tucked up tight for ground clearance.

The Japanese domestic market was dominated by supersport machines in the late ’80s to early ’90s, and this quartet of four-cylinder 250cc machines is an example of racing enthusiasm and engineering at its best. From left to right: 1988 Suzuki GSX-R250, 1988 Yamaha FZR250, 1991 Honda CBR250RR, and 1991 Kawasaki ZX250R.

The 249cc, inline-four-cylinder, gear-drive DOHC engine is an engineering and production manufacturing masterpiece, especially when you consider its age. Redline is set at 19,000 rpm—yep, you read that right, no typo. Think about that for a minute: Even F1 auto racing engines didn’t reach that stratospheric number until 11 years later, yet here was a production unit for sale to the public in 1991 with a full warranty that’s expected to easily fire up in the morning and scream at five-digit rpm all day long if need be. To think that four pistons with diameters about the size of your average wristwatch face and 16 valve faces each about the size of a thimble are producing 45 hp (the maximum allowed for the 250cc class in Japan) is amazing.

It's a 1992 Honda CBR 250 RR (n), Unrestricted 45HP 4 Cylinder motorbike from the exciting era of Japanese motorcycles. It has a simply insane redline of 19,500 RPM and a decent amount or torque. The mc22 engine is a legend due to it's 100,000Km+ reliability and ease of maintenance.

The Honda may be 28-year-old technology, but it will more than hold its own against any modern 250–300cc machinery available today. To think that a motorcycle this old can possess this kind of performance is mind-boggling, and it demonstrates that sound engineering is timeless.

Despite its hard-core racing persona, the CBR has a very amenable riding position, with a short reach to the bars, low seat height, and average legroom. The engine starts readily on cold mornings using the cable-operated choke knob, and quickly settles into a smooth, 1,200-rpm idle once warm. Because of its ultra-high rpm ceiling, the gearing can be short enough in the lower gears that taking off from a stop doesn’t require tons of clutch slip unless you’re trying to holeshot traffic. While not exactly a powerhouse below 10,000 rpm, the Honda still has enough torque to pull quickly through the gearing, and is easily a match for any modern 300cc machine.

The CBR250RR’s tailsection reminds us of the 1993 CBR900RR that debuted in the States, and is a stark contrast to the minimalist tailsections of today. “Super Response Quarter” is a “Jinglish” translation for “super responsive quarter-liter” (250cc is one-quarter of a “liter” or 1,000cc) motorcycle.

1992 Honda CBR 250 RR MC22 This bike was in production for the following years 1990 Z Car Reviews . Time to let my baby go. I have got my full Licence so letting this one go. 1992 Honda CBR 250 RR MC22.

The little CBR really comes alive above 13,000 rpm, the tiny engine vibes smoothing out and acceleration accompanied by a soundtrack not that far off from the screaming V-10 F1 auto racing engines of yesteryear. Peak power occurs just above 18,000 rpm, but doesn’t seem to drop off much as the engine continues revving on up to 19,000 rpm and beyond. We can only imagine how the Honda would be uncorked with a full exhaust and other derestriction measures; 20,000-rpm screaming bliss, anyone?

The CBR250RR’s handling is sublime, with quick handling and sharp steering that allows you to put it anywhere on the racetrack, coupled with a stability that permits you to carry tons of corner speed over any pavement despite the near-30-year-old suspension components.

Granted, you’ll be doing a lot of shifting to make time. Keeping the little engine on the boil is paramount, but luckily the transmission is crisp and positive in its action. There’s no slipper clutch (remember, this is ’91 we’re talking about here…), but the close-ratio gearbox—and a little work from the rider to blip the throttle and match engine-to-road speeds—helps keep everything working smoothly.

But while the wailing four-cylinder is certainly an impressive piece, the CBR’s chassis is the star of the show. It may not have the latest components like a shock linkage or inverted fork or full adjustability, but the Honda’s twin-spar aluminum chassis simply works well despite its early origins. Steering is light yet neutral as well as precise yet stable, and with abundant ground clearance, corner speeds ramp up easily. Feedback from both ends is excellent, and while the 249cc engine doesn’t exactly have the type of power for rear-wheel-steering corner exits, the front provides enough communication to attack corner entries with an aggression that maintains momentum and makes the horsepower deficit much less of a liability.

Despite its race-replica image, the CBR’s riding position isn’t overly race-jockey-ish, with a short reach to the bars and decent legroom that won’t have you seeking a chiropractor after 20 minutes in the saddle. Even then, the fairing allows you to tuck in nicely, and the ergos work just as well for racetrack riding.

The CBR’s brakes are also ’90s tech, with smallish 275mm dual stainless steel discs mounted on rubber-damped steel buttons attached to stamped-aluminum disc carriers. The two-piston slide calipers on each side might not look as flashy as today’s monoblock pieces, but the whole brake system gets the job done. There’s good power and decent feel, enough for excellent control and deep entries into the corners that further exploit the potential of the chassis.

That a 28-year-old motorcycle could go head to head with the latest 250cc machinery is amazing. The 1991 Honda CBR250RR represented a time when racing was king in Japan, and the domestic motorcycle market reflected that engineering enthusiasm. Alas, that era has long passed, and supersport bikes don’t have that same popularity with the buying public, in Japan, here, or abroad. But at least there are still bikes like the CBR provided here by Iconic Motorbikes (iconicmotorbikes.com) to remind us of a great period in motorcycling.
