Honda has officially launched the new Trico Edition of its CBR250RR quarter-litre motorcycle. This new edition will be sold in the Malaysian market. This new paint scheme is inspired by the brand’s CBR1000RR-R SP superbike and replaces the one introduced in 2020. It also needs to be mentioned that the price of the new variant remains unchanged at RM 25,999, which equates to approximately Rs 4.67 lakh (ex-showroom).
As the name suggests, this new paint scheme is a combination of three colours: red, blue, and white. Besides the colour scheme, everything else remains unchanged. This new Honda CBR250RR doesn’t seem to come to our shores anytime in the future owing to the low volume of sales of fully-faired quarter-litre motorcycles in the country. Instead, the brand will focus on the mid-weight motorcycle segment in India.
Honda CBR250RR is equipped with a 249cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine that is now capable of offering maximum power of 41HP which is 3HP higher when compared to the 38HP offered by the last-gen variant. The torque figure of the updated motorcycle variant has also been increased to 25Nm which is 2Nm higher than the last-gen version that was good for 23Nm. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed gearbox while the motorcycle claims 180kmph of top speed and takes approximately 6 seconds to reach 100kmph from a standstill.
Honda CBR250RR features a digital console with inverted colours. The speedometer value is accompanied by a borderline tachometer, a ride-mode indicator and a gear-shift indicator. The overall space is very well divided to bring the digital clock and odometer into action. The console looks directly derived from a 1000cc superbike-spec machine.
