CBR250R may not be the most appealing quarter liter motorcycle of India currently. The blame goes more into the brand than the motorcycle as a new generation motorcycle has been out in the international market from a long time. Honda has brought CBR250R Repsol Racing Replica to the country, which is practically nothing more than a new livery to the aged motorcycle. The motorcycle will be sold in two trims, Dani Pedrosa 26 and Marc Márquez 93.

The new Edition is launched to celebrate the success of Honda in MotoGP 2016. Honda says that the motorcycle’s livery is inspired from RC213V and contains the MotoGP graphics as well as the matching paint scheme. The motorcycle was one of the favorite among Indian when it was launched back in 2011. It started showing its age when most other manufacturers launched new offerings in the sport bike section.
The motorcycle is powered by the same 249.6 cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 26.15 BHP and 22.9 Nm of torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and became popular with its accessible 780 mm of low seat height. It is no doubt one of the best sports tourer by its engine values in the country but a new edition has been on sale in the international markets from a long time. It claims 145 kmph of top speed and weighs 163 kg.
