Vehicle Overview
CBR250R is the flagship product that has been locally manufactured by the company. It carries a fully faired design with three shades in availability. The bike comes with a 249.6cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine that produces 26.5 HP and 22.9 Nm of torque. It is one of the most reliable motorcycles around its price tag. CBR250R comes with a seat height of just 784 mm and claims a top speed of 135 kmph. It rivals Mahindra Mojo, Benelli TNT 25, Bajaj Dominar 400 around its price segment. CBR250R was recently relaunched in India for INR 1.64 Lakh.KTM RC 390 is being offered in India with a different paint scheme from the last-gen model. The refreshed theme now covers more Orange, Jet Black and White shade on the body panels. It even offers a new exhaust system, making it heavier by few kg for sure. The engine is the same 373.2 cc, 1-cylinder liquid cooled and fuel injected motor, which now develops 43.5 PS of maximum power and 36 NM of maximum torque. The torque has been increased by 1 Nm and the power has been decreased by 0.5 PS.Hero HX250R is still one of the most awaited products in India. The quarter liter segment actually lacks competition while Honda CBR250R enjoys an exclusive space for fully faired sport bikes in the country. HX250R will rival the same and seems quite good on paper with its 249cc engine producing 31 BHP and 23 Nm of torque. The weight was quoted to be 139 kg by Hero MotoCorp, providing the HX250R with loads to power on every front. It claims a top speed of 165 kmph while the rivals on the list includes KTM RC200, Benelli TNT 25 and Mahindra Mojo. It may get priced around INR 1.40 lakh.
