The Honda Nighthawk 250 is a Honda standard motorcycle. It has a 234 cc (14.3 cu in) air-cooled parallel twin engine. First manufactured in 1982, the motorcycle has changed little except for color. The Nighthawk 250 is essentially a light, maneuverable, inexpensive, economical, and easy to maintain bike. It is often used in Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) motorcycle training. Its small size and low seat make it a popular model for riders of smaller stature. It has drum brakes and spoked wheels at front and rear, though front disc brakes and alloy wheels are on Australian, U.K. and Japanese models.
In contrast to the Honda Rebel 250, which offers very similar specification, the Nighthawk is considered to be an urban street-use bike, standard street motorcycle. The bike's lineage can be traced back to the Honda CM200 Twinstar of the early 1980s, it has the same bore at 53mm and an increased stroke of 53mm resulting in a capacity of 234 cc (14.3 cu in).
