Honda CBR250RR Review

09 Jul, 2017 02:19 PM


Honda has come up with its lightweight, highly efficient, twin cylinder bike named as 'CBR250RR'. The ‘Light Weight Super Sport Concept’ (CBR250RR) was unveiled earlier at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The production model has now been unveiled in Indonesia on July 25. Although doubtful to be launched in India, but if launched it is expected to sweep away its rivals with its high performance figures, design and much more. The key rivals of CBR250RR in India would be Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha R3.

Design and Style

Since the 250RR comes from the CBR series, so undoubtedly it is going to have a head turning design. It features some of the sharpest curves for cheating the wind over its passage. It has been designed with the key phrase “strong presence” which is so depicted by its next-generation super sport concept model, low crouching position and long nose which gives the rider a sense of speed. Its plane architecture indicates its hardness and solidity whereas the sharp edges give it the aggressive look. On the exterior, the bike features matte-black-based low-contrast graphics which adds more to its remarkablility.

The 2017 Honda CBR250RR is based on a newly developed steel truss frame, with aluminium gul type swingarm. The right-side swingarm has been shaped to reduce exhaust pipe extrusion which makes the bike look slimmer while retaining the bank angle. The CBR250RR has got a similar front face as that of the CBR series. To add on its beauty, the bike has dual-LED headlights, sharp wedge-shape, long nose, acute tail, sharp body lines, sculpted fuel tank and chiselled tail section. It features conventional single side exhaust muffler which is supposed to be a 2-1-2 system that is compatible with the overall bike design.

Dimensions and Fuel capacity

Honda CBR250RR is a big step by the bikemaker in terms of design and styling. The bike has got an overall length of 2060 mm, overall width of 724 mm and overall height of 1098 mm. The seat height is 790 mm and the wheelbase is 1389 mm. The bike has got a 145 mm ground clearance. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 14.5 litres with 1.9 litres oil tank capacity.

Engine and Gearbox

Honda CBR250RR is a one of its kind machine which would boost the quarter litre motorcycle segment by delivering much more than the expected performance figures. Honda CBR250RR will get its power from the twin cylinder, 249.7 cc, 4-stroke, 8-valve, liquid cooled engine which generates 38.2 Bhp @ 12,500 rpm of maximum power and 23.3 NM @ 11,000 rpm of maximum torque. The output figures delivered by the bike are more than the other quarter litre fighters around the world.

The engine is mated to a six speed gearbox with multiplate wet clutch with coil spring. The Japanese bike maker claims that the motor is easy to handle for urban riding as well as comfortable on the circuit giving out a smooth output across the entire rev range. Honda has also confirmed that the engine comes with Throttle-by-Wire (TbW) which makes it possible to use 3-way engine mode settings through which the rider can tap into the linear power output at his will.

Brakes and Suspension

As was showcased in the concept, the CBR250RR is equipped with a USD suspension setup at the front and pro-link suspension featuring 5-step preload at the rear. The braking duties are performed by 310 mm front and 240 mm rear wavy disc brakes. The bike has got dual-channel ABS option.

Instrument Console

CBR250RR has got a fully digital instrument console which includes digital speedometer, trip meter, tachometer, odometer, clock and fuel gauge. The instrument panel also includes ABS light, gear indicator, service reminder, low oil indicator, low battery indicator and rev limiter indicator.

Top Speed and Mileage

The bike is expected to have a top speed of more than 180 kmph. There are no mileage figures released officially yet by the company. But we can expect the bike to have a powerful acceleration along with good mileage.

Shades and Tyres

The bike will be available in three exciting shades: Honda Red Racing, Matt Gun Powder Black and Anchor Grey Metallic. CBR250RR comes equipped with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. It has got a 17 inch 110/70-17 54S front tyre and 17 inch 140/70-17 66S rear tyres.

Expected Price and Launch Date

The 2017 CBR250RR will be manufactured in Indonesia and will be largest displacement Honda motorcycle manufactured ever in the country. The sales for the bike in the South East Asian country will commence likely by the end of 2016 and sales in Japan will begin at a later date. Regarding the launch of Honda CBR250RR, Honda has come up with no official statement. Reports claim that the 350cc version is also in the pipeline so, it would be difficult to predict whether the bike will be launched in India or not.

If launched, the bike is expected with a price between Rs. 3,50,000-4,00,000 and would prove to be a tough competitor for Yamaha R3 and Ninja 300. One thing remains obvious that the bike is going to prove a tough competition for its rivals globally and it is expected to make a big place in the hearts of the riders, once launched.
