Honda has applied for a model design in India for its CBR250RR. On May 5, 2023, the request for permission that was made earlier this year was journaled. The Honda CBR250RR is the latest in an extensive range of items from the firm that are patented in India that will never be seen on Indian roads.

India Launch Update 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.

Honda CBR250RR Review

20 Oct, 2022 03:02 PM

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team


The Honda CBR250RR is the company’s entry-level twin-cylinder SuperSport bike, which is already available in a few international markets. It has got some new schemes, and the engine has also been upgraded. The upgraded version is already available in Japan.

Honda CBR250RR Design and Style

There are no major changes in terms of fundamental design except for the added colour schemes in the CBR250RR, continuing to flaunt the aggressive style with its twin-LED headlamp setup with double-barrel exhaust, an aluminium swing-arm, dual-channel ABS, gold-finish upside-down front forks and gold alloy wheels. It is installed with an all-digital instrument cluster which comes with Honda Connect, 3 ride modes and many interesting features.

Honda CBR250RR Engine and Gearbox

The upgraded BS6 compliant engine is a 249.7cc 4-stroke 8-valve DOHC parallel twin-cylinder PGM-Fi (programmed fuel injection) liquid-cooled with auto electric fan and is set to generate a max power of 40.2 HP @ 13,000 rpm and a max torque of 25 Nm @ 11,000 rpm. It is still mated with a 6-speed gearbox with a multi-plate wet clutch with coil spring assist and slipper along with an optional quick shifter at 168 kg of kerb weight and 14.5 litres of fuel tank capacity.

Honda CBR250RR Suspension, Brakes and Tyres

2023 CBR250RR is suspended on the Diamond Truss Frame with Inverted Telescopic Golden USD Forks at the front and Aluminium Swing-arm 5-adjustable mono-shock suspension with Pro-link System at the rear. 310mm Hydraulic Disc dual-piston at the front and 240mm Hydraulic Disc single piston and rear is installed to regulate the braking duties. The front wheel is a 17-inch 110/70-R17 54H (tubeless, alloy) and the rear wheel is also a 17-inch 140/70-R17 66H (tubeless, alloy) adapted with dual-channel ABS at both ends.

Instrument Console of Honda CBR250RR

A full digital console that demonstrates high performance. The width of the bezel surrounding the liquid crystal area is designed to be as thin as possible. The liquid crystal part is designed to enhance visibility to acquire all the information presented by it. It displays information like gear position, two-type trip meters, clock, fuel consumption meter, water temperature gauge, riding mode and such. It is also equipped with a 5-unit REV indicator that notifies the shift timing that has been set arbitrarily by lighting and blinking the LED, and a lap timer function. There are three Ride Modes available, Sport, Sport+ and Comfort. It also comes with Bluetooth connectivity, which can be used to connect to the Honda Connect App and also gets a smart key with theft detection.

Key Features of Honda CBR250RR

Some of the key features include LED headlights, DOHC in-line twin-cylinder engine, Impressive Design, Assist and Slipper Clutch, Dual-channel ABS, 3 Riding Modes, All Digital informative Console, Smartkey, Theft Deterrence, Quick-shifter, Throttle-by-Wire System. Comfort features include a step-up seat/split seat, electric seat, riding modes, engine kill switch, pillion footrest, pillion grab rail, self-canceling indicators, etc.

Top Speed and Mileage of Honda CBR250RR

2023 CBR250RR can reach 0 to 60 kmph in 2.75 seconds and 0 to 100 kmph in 6 seconds, and the top speed it can achieve is approximately 180 kmph. Honda has claimed the mileage to be 40.1 kmpl at a 60 kmph of a constant value.

Honda CBR250RR Colour Options

2023 Honda CBR250RR is available in 4 new shades namely, Graphite Black, Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic, Pearl Glare White and the Grand Prix Red (stripped).

Honda CBR250RR Price

The standard CBR250RR is suggested to be around 821,700 Japanese Yen (including the consumption tax) which is approximately 4,88,966 INR and the Grand Prix Red (striped) is suggested to be around 854,700 JPY which would amount to 5,08,510 INR (including the consumption tax).

Honda CBR250RR Competitors

The closest rival to the CBR250RR is the Yamaha R25, which is more affordable than the Honda sportbike, but R25 also lags behind in terms of performance and safety. R25, with its twin-cylinder engine, can deliver 35.5 HP @ 12,000 rpm of max power and 22.6 Nm @ 10,000 rpm of max torque.

India Launch Expectation

This may not be good news for Honda enthusiasts, but the CBR250RR will only be available in India through a local production method. A competitive and accessible price via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) approach is not conceivable since pricing the CBR250RR at roughly INR 3.75-4.00 lakh (ex-showroom) would not attract the number of purchasers necessary for Honda to keep the operations running. HMSI has yet to make a formal announcement on the launch of the CBR250RR in India. The brand may consider the sports bike for the Indian market in the future.

Cross Beam Racer 250 R

Samrudh Dixit | One year ago
helpful 4

CBR should be a genre of Cross Beam Racer but not this 250R. Its more of a compromise on quick bike to make a to do all tourer. Comfortable stance with good wind block from the fairing. Quality of components is really good but misses out on no. of components, like side stand indicator and no radiator protection. First thing I did was dump those ContiGO's/MRF's and put Michelin Street Pilot radials the accuracy on leans and grip is way sorted than stock (note rounder profile of rear tyre makes it a bit shaky after 100kph). It's a infantly sensitive on 1st to 3rd gear (forearm clutch exercise in traffic) but post that 4th-5th have a mid range hammer to 6th, which can take 5k to 8.5k revs; from 70kph to 130ish kph. But passing power in 7. 5k to 8. 5k revs is non-existent/mellow. To conclude, if you want one bite of all types of bikes it's a good option and is a really exciting one. Though the price and updated competitors make it hard to recommend it now. (Honda should desperately launch 300 etc.)

Best Features: 6th gear is an overide, smooth gearbox and throttle response.

Pros: Mid Range - usable power & Well dressed - fairing works.

Cons: Minimal display & Low end wrt to gear ratios.

The bike is really good and comfortable for touring or long rides, its a sport tourer and not completely a sport bike so don't mix and compare with KTM RC 200 or Ninja. It is best in its sphere of 250cc. Considerable mileage of 30-40kmpl if u ride it with passion rather than rudely. And last but not the least nothing is perfect so make it perfect if u want and assurance lies with brand honda itself, get the road side assistance while purchasing and extended warranty.

Best Features: Comfortable with long rides, braking system, smooth and low-mid pickup, instant pickup, horn power

Pros: Handling, comfort, smooth pickup, sitting posture, pillion comfort, grabrail, storage inside bike, exhaust sound and braking with combined abs

Cons: Headlight power comparitively low though 55/60w, cornering is not confident with this, huge difference between 1st and 2nd gear, rear mudguard not enough to resist mud splashes

Perfect Tourer for India

raghav - | 7 years ago

Fantastic bike for touring and a great starter bike, but lacks in low end torque which is needed in the city, and looks a bit outdated. Would have been nice if the 300r was released last year. Probably has the best seating position in class. Has a meaty mid range and top end, ideal for high speed cruising on highways, very stable at high speeds. Engine is not stressed and is mod capable. City riding is manageable. Very very decent return of mile age depending on the riders' s riding style. Non existent exhaust note, poor low end torque.

Best Features: The engine, coolant system, seating position

Pros: The mid range and top end, cost of spares ,engine, coolant system

Cons: Non existent exhaust note, low end torque, slightly outdated looks, display, satisfactory braking (non abs)
