The 2001 Taiyo Honda CR250R is one of several 1/6 scale RC motorbikes released by Taiyo using a 6.0V battery pack. While small and convenient, the 5xAA Ni-CD inside provide JUST enough power to make it worthwhile, though they’re not fast by any means, and in our opinion are ideal for bashing around indoors (jumps, stunts, etc.) more so than outdoors where the lack of speed will be obvious.
These bikes will lean around corners like a real bike, and while not especially fast or powerful, the unique two-wheel ‘driving’ experience is alot of fun.
This particular bike, the Honda RC211V isn’t especially common, and does not appear to have been sold outside of Japan. As a result there’s only one video on YouTube that I could find of this model, taken 15 years ago!
Wait, YouTube has been around that long?! I feel old…
