As the speculations were about the new Honda CBR 150R and the news about the CBR 250R was kept aside, the pictures of the actual new Honda CBR 250R has been revealed.
Here’s what the press release had to say about the new CBR 250R and it’s launch details in India.
“Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (Pvt.) Ltd. will also start production of the CBR250R next spring and extend sales from India to South America. Honda will also offer the CBR250R at a more affordable price in the diversified Indian motorcycle market by effectively carrying out global procurement of parts and materials in the same way as Thai Honda”.
The CBR250R is equipped with a newly-developed liquid-cooled 250cc 4-stroke 4-valve single-cylinder DOHC engine that is easy to handle. High environmental performance that meets Euro 3 emission standards and Thailand’s sixth emission standards was realized by adopting an electronically controlled fuel injection system (PGM-FI) as well as an O2 sensor and taking advantage of the combined effect with a catalyzer fitted inside the exhaust pipe.
The full-cowl body presents a highly advanced design full of functional beauty. The light and compact frame, made of a highly-rigid diamond shape in a truss structure, offers agile handling and steady maneuverability as a sports model, while the cowl design enables optimal control of the wind toward the engine or the rider.
In the area of safety technology, the CBR250R’s specifications incorporate Combined ABS, a world first for a 250cc-class road sports model into a designated type.
The Combined ABS makes vehicle movements more stable during braking by bringing together a Combined Brake System (CBS, a front- and rear-wheel interlocking braking system) and an Anti-lock Brake System”.
