The Honda CBR250RR sports bike recently got an upgrade in Indonesia. The difference in the new and old variant can be judged by the new shades on offer while the brand has not made any mechanical changes to the motorcycle. The 2020 model of the CBR250RR is available in Bravery Mat Red and Black Freedom, along with the other two 2019 shades (Mat Gunpowder Black Metallic and Racing Red).
Honda CBR250RR is one of the smartest quarter-litre motorcycles across the globe. It features a sharp design, an aluminium swingarm and loads of segment-leading electronic components. Honda offers the sports bike with the smartest all-LED headlights around this segment that not just look good but also aids in low light visibility.
The not-so-good news for the CBR fans in India is that the chances of CBR250RR’s launch have gone down further with the introduction of CB300R in the country. The brand’s focus will now stay on single-cylinder bikes in the lightweight category. The 2020 CBR250RR retains dual-channel ABS, gold-finished upside-down front forks, dual exhaust system, ride-by-wire, and three riding modes.
The 250cc sports bike is equipped with an advanced all-digital instrument console, featuring every bit of information, including Comfort, Sport, and the Sport+ riding mode indication. The motorcycle is equipped with a powerful 249.7cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that generates a maximum power of 38.7HP @ 12,500 rpm and a peak torque of 23.3Nm @ 11,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Built on a Truss frame, the Honda CBR250RR features a 5-step adjustable rear monoshock, hydraulic disc brakes with ABS at both ends and a 140/70-17 rear tyre. The sports bike measures 2060mm in length and 1389mm in wheelbase, offering track-spec control through its impressive dimensions. The standard variant of the CBR250RR weighs just 165kgs while those looking for ABS variant will witness 3kgs of weight increase.
The highly aerodynamically-efficient motorcycle offers 145mm of decent ground clearance. The Indonesian market also offers some mouth-watering accessories like fender eliminator kit, single-seat cowl, hand-guard, aero fin, stunning tank pad, and metal radiator protector.
At present, the ABS model of the sportbike is available in Indonesia for IDR 72,302,000 (INR 3.79 lakh, approximate). HMSI has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of the CBR250RR in India though the brand may consider the sports bike for the Indian market at a later stage in future.
