Honda CBR250R Registers 97% Sales Drop in October 2019

The huge 97% drop in sales for the Honda CBR250R confirms that faith on older products is getting weaker with each passing day. The model is now only available with an ABS-equipped braking setup and comes with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.96 lakh. Options like Jawa 300 and other above quarter-litre bikes have given the freedom of selection to the buyers that were earlier missing from this segment. Buyers can even consider the Bajaj Dominar 400 at INR 1.90 lakh. Not just that, a lot of motorcycles priced lower than the CBR250R have more power output and features.

 Honda is using the same old single headlight design for their product and getting options like TVS Apache RR 310 and the KTM RC 390 with a slight increase in the budget further worsens the situation. The brand is facing tough times for all the products considering the recent downfall in the two-wheeler industry. In addition to this, the decline in sales is also justified since the customers are waiting for the BS6-compliant models to be revealed soon. The 249cc, single-cylinder engine on the CBR250R is good for 26.5HP of maximum power. The entry of the all-new Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 at INR 1.71 lakh has further made the situation uneasy for Honda as the motorcycle undercuts its nearest rival by INR 25,000. Yamaha FZ25 is another reason for the downfall of Honda CBR250R in India.

Most Popular Answers for Honda CBR250R
Which is the best sports bike to buy? Either Honda CBR250R or Bajaj Pulsar 220F?
2022-12-29 06:06:09 AM
Pulsar 220 F is the best bike as it offers the most powerful engine at the best price tag in the Indian market. The CBR250R is a bit expensive at INR 2 lakh on road but performs better due to its bigger engine whereas the Bajaj Pulsar 220F comes with an economical price tag and performs excellently well in its class. It is powered by an oil cooled 220 cc engine producing 20.8 BHP and 19.12 Nm of torque. The bike weighs 15 kg less than the CBR and comes with a top speed of 134 kmph.
(1) How much is minimum down payment (2) How much minimum EMI (3) How many colours are available in Honda CBR250R?
2022-12-29 06:05:53 AM
The CBR250R is available in the following colors; Sports Red, Sports Black, Pearl Amazing White. The minimum downpayment you can expect to pay is 10% of the bike’s ex-showroom price. However, banks have very strict criteria so getting a loan upto 90% of the bike’s value could be little tough. You could instead pay 15% of bike’s ex-showroom price which in this case is, 15% of 160, 585 (ex-showroom delhi), Rs 24087. You’ll have to pay for the RTO and insurance. The EMI will reduce as you increase the downpayment. To get the lowest possible EMI, pay as much as you can upfront and, for the remaining amount, apply for a 5 year loan.
I am 5'5”, is KTM RC 200 comfortable for me? Or Honda CBR250R is better?
2022-12-29 06:05:48 AM
The KTM RC200's seat might be a little high for you, at 820mm. The CBR 250R is an ideal choice. It has a seat height of 780mm, 40 mm less than the KTM RC200. Your feet will easily touch the ground so it'll be easier to handle a CBR250 R.

I want complete details for Hero HX250R, can it defeat Honda CBR250R?
2022-12-29 06:05:07 AM
Hero HX250R is expected to launch with the same design as it was recently seen at the Auto Expo 2016 with no changes to the design displayed 2 years ago. The 250 cc engine on the HX250R is good for 31 BHP and its lightweight 139 kg of body makes it sure than it sprints better than Honda CBR250R, R15 and maybe 200 Duke. The things are different with the Ninja as it is a 2-cylinder 300 cc motorcycle with loads of more power than the the HX250R. It even costs more than double the expected price of INR 1,50,000 for the HX250R. It would carry the twin headlight design and support yellow halogen bulbs in both the lights.
