2022 Honda CBR 250RR Launched in Stealth Black in Japan

2022 Honda CBR250RR just gets a new color to the palette – black! This takes the total tally of colors to four…

If there is one quarter liter motorcycle that we would love to see on our roads – it has to be the Honda CBR 250RR! It is sold in various countries including Indonesia, Thailand, and that gives us hope. But that unreal hope aside, let us talk about the latest update on this international model.

Honda Japan has updated their race-track inspired CBR 250RR line-up with a new color – Graphite Black – for 2022. This color is the fourth one available in the CBR250RR offering.

Honda CBR250RR is a 249 cc race-track inspired sports bike which uses a twin-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valve DOHC engine which produces 41 PS of power at 13,000 RPM and 25 Nm of torque at 11,000 RPM.

It utilizes a 6-speed constant mesh transmission to put its power to the rear wheel. It runs on a diamond frame attached to 17” tyres on each end. It stops with the help of disc brakes at both ends and is equipped with upside-down shocks at the front. 

The updated Graphite Black color adds to the already available options of Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic with Red Highlights, Pearl Glare White with Red Highlights  and their special Grand-Prix Red featuring their special red, white and blue race-inspired livery with gold-finished wheels.

Other than adding the new colour to the line-up, the 2022 Honda CBR250RR remains unchanged visually and mechanically. Honda Japan has announced that the 2022 CBR 250RR will start rolling out from 20th of January 2022. The company aims to sell 3,500 units in the year 2022. 

Honda to Locally Make 250cc+ Engines; Should Prices Drop?

The Honda CBR 250RR is available in Japan for a starting price of ¥821,700 (Approx. Rs. 5.44 Lakh) for the normal colour variants and ¥854,700 (approx. 5.66 Lakh) for the Grand-Prix Red colour variant. 

Apparently, there appear to be no plans from Honda to bring this quarter-liter beast to our shores. However, that doesn’t stop us from wanting and dreaming of one day riding this machine on our roads. After all the CB500X also came without any prior intimation…
