Vehicle Overview
Kawasaki Ninja 250R was discontinued to make way for the Ninja 300 in India. The twin-cylinder, 249cc machine was good for 32.5 HP and 22 Nm of torque. It was last sold for INR 3.03 lakh and had no direct rivals during its popularity. It came with a single headlight design while the new Ninja 300 supported dual headlights with a more appealing design. Internationally, Ninja 250 competes against Yamaha R25 and Hyosung GD250R.This may not be a piece of good news for Honda fans but the launch of CBR250RR in India is only possible via local production route. At present, the 2021 model of the sportbike is available in Japan for JPY 8,21,700 (INR 5.79 lakh, approx). An aggressive and affordable price tag via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route is not possible as placing the CBR250RR at around INR 3.75-4.00 lakh (ex-showroom) would not get the number of buyers required by Honda to keep the operations going. If Honda starts the local production of CBR250RR and manages to price the sports bike at around INR 3 lakh, only then the brand would be able to get a decent sales number in India. As of now, HMSI has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of the CBR250RR in India. The brand may consider the sports bike for the Indian market at a later stage in future.
