Honda CBR250R (Old Model) Review

27 Dec, 2021 04:24 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

2018 Honda CBR250R was recently launched in India for INR 1,63,584 (ex-showroom Delhi). Not just that, Honda even brought the ABS equipped model in India for INR 1,93,107. The design language remains exactly the same as first generation CBR250R while use of better LED lights and paint combinations has made CBR250R a great option to own.

It comes powered by the tried and tested, ultra reliable 249.6cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 26.5 PS at 8500 rpm and 22.9 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Honda uses 110/70-17 front and 140/70-17 rear tyre for maximum grip levels. ABS version offers Nissin brake calipers and thus, command suh high premium than the non ABS version.

Front disc measures 296 mm while rear is 220 mm in diameter. As the bike weighs 167 kg, it performs extremely well when compared to heavier bikes with bigger engines. Fuel tank still carries 13 liters of petrol and thus, one can expect 400 kilometers of overall range. Highway riding can offer even better range as most owners use their CBR250Rs for long distance touring due to its reliable nature.

CBR250R is available in Matte Axis Grey Metallic with Orange and Striking Green (two different shades), Pearl Sports Yellow and Sports Red shade. Front LED headlight is placed within the same sort of space and thus, one can replace their existing halogen units with this one easily. Instrument console on CBR250R is semi digital with analog tachometer and digital speedometer. Honda CBR250R rivals many bikes but closest possible option is KTM RC200.


The price gap is minimal between both these. When it comes to ABS variant, it challenges recently launched TVS Apache RR 310 in India. Both have a price gap of INR 22,000 in some states and just INR 3000 in Kerala.

  • Will Honda CBR250R BS6 Model be Introduced in India?
    13 Sep, 2021

  • When will Honda CBR250RR be launched in India?
    26 Jul, 2016 | By Maxabout Team

    The Honda CBR250RR has been officially unveiled yesterday in the Indonesian market and will be available for sale there by the end of 2016. The automaker hasn't planned the bike's production in Japan in order to keep production costs low and thus Indonesia is a suitable place.

    There are no official updates on when this bike would be laynched in India. But if launched, then we can expect it to be priced between Rs. 3,50,000- Rs. 4,00,000. The new Honda CBR 250RR is going to prove a tough competitor for Yamaha R3 which is already on sale as a CKD model in the Indian market along with Ninja 300.

    26 Jul, 2016 | By Maxabout Team

    The recently unvieled Honda CBR 250RR will get its power from a parallel-twin motor. Although there are no official torque or power values released yet but we can expect this premium quarter-litre offering from the Japanese two-wheeler giant to generate around 35-38 Bhp of power and around 26-29 NM of torque. Riders may also get a chance to enjoy goodies on the bike like ride-by-wire and switchable riding modes.

    The chassis has been tuned for more efficient handling dynamics. The bike's braking duties will be performed by petal disc brakes on both the ends. The bike will be launched with optional ABS.
