The Honda CBR250RR sports bike recently got an upgrade in Japan. The difference in the new and old variant can be judged by the new shades on offer while the brand has also upgraded the engine to generate more power and torque.
The 2021 model of the CBR250RR is available in Japan with a starting price tag of JPY 8,21,700 (INR 5.79 lakh, approx) for the basic shades. Honda is also offering the sports bike in Grand Prix Red (Striped Version) at a price tag of JPY 8,54,700 (INR 6.02 lakh, approximate).
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 2021 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 249cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine that is now capable of offering maximum power of 41HP which is 3HP higher when compared to the 38HP offered by the last-gen variant.
The torque figure of the new Honda CBR250RR sports bike has also been increased to 25Nm which is 2Nm higher than the last-gen version that was good for 23Nm. The engine remains 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 2065mm in length and 1390mm in wheelbase, offering track-spec control through its impressive dimensions.
The highly aerodynamically-efficient motorcycle offers 145mm of decent ground clearance. 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.
