The Honda CBR250RR 2016 was first publicly introduced at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show last year and made rounds among bike lovers due to its aggressive styling. Its popularity and design is making it one of the best-looking motorcycles in the 250 cc segment worldwide.
Price and Availability:
The bike has been launched in Japan and sales will begin later. Also the availability in the South East Asian country is not yet revealed. But if this bike will come to India, it is expected to come between a price bracket of Rs. 3,50,000 to Rs. 4,00,000.
In India Honda CBR250RR could face tough competition with existing winners like Hyosung GT250R, Yamaha YZF-R3, DSK Benelli TNT300 and Kawasaki Ninja 250R or could be Bajaj’s upcoming Pulsar RS400.
This looks muscular naa? Yes It is. Features some of the sharpest curves and has been designed with the key phrase “strong presence” which is so described by its next-generation super sport concept model, low crouching position and long nose which will give the rider a sense of speed.
This has an overall length of 2060mm, width of 724mm and height of 1098mm. The seat height is 790mm and the wheelbase is 1389mm. Ground clearance is 145mm.
Engine and Fuel:
The Honda CNR250RR has been powered by 4-Stroke 8-Valve parallel twin DOHC Engine with new water cooled technology. The official power has not been released yet but it is expected to produce maximum power of 35-38 BHP and maximum torque of 26-29 NM. The output figures delivered by the bike can be more than the other quarter litre fighters. The fuel tank has capacity of 14.5 litres with 1.9 litres reserve capacity.
The engine will come with a six speed gearbox with multi-plate wet clutch and coil spring. Also Honda claims that the motor is easy to handle for urban riding and is comfortable on the circuit giving out a smooth output. The Japanese company has also confirmed that the engine will come with Throttle-by-Wire (TbW) that will make it possible to use 3-way engine mode. This will let the rider tap into the linear power output at his will.
When the bike was showcased it had a USD suspension setup at the front and pro-link suspension that featured 5-step preload at the rear. Rumours suggest that the braking duties are performed by 310 mm front and 240 mm rear wavy disc brakes. It will also come with dual-channel ABS option.
Expecting super fast? Yep, this bike can run upto 180km/h. What did you said, not enough! Don’t worry it could go more than 180 kmph but mileage figures are not yet officially released by the company.
Tyres and Colours:
Honda CBR250RR will be equipped with Alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. The bike will be available in three stunning shades, which includes Honda Red Racing, Matt Gun Powder Black and Anchor Grey Metallic.
