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

29 Apr, 2022 12:08 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

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

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

2022 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most Popular FAQs for Honda CBR250RR
  • I want to know if there are any spare part availability issues with the Honda CBR250R?
    13 Sep, 2021

    As far as we know, all of the Honda CBR250R’s spare parts are made in India. Hence, there is no issue of importing or else. However, you can contact the authorized dealer to check the availability.

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

    The Honda CBR250R has been discontinued in India owing to its poor sales and introduction of new emission standards. The company find it costly and worthless to launch the bike with BS6 norms. Hence, the relaunch of the Honda CBR250R seems difficult in India.

  • 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.

  • What are the power and torque figures of Honda CBR250RR?
    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.
