The Honda CBR250RR made its maiden appearance as a concept model – the “Light Weight Super Sports Concept” – at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show in 2015. And now the production model of that sub-300 cc sportbike is finally out. Here are a few things that we know about it:
- It will be the largest displacement Honda motorcycle to be manufactured in the Indonesia.
- The CBR250RR’s front face shares face with the rest of the CBR series and features dual-LED headlights.
- It is powered by a newly developed water-cooled 4-stroke 4-valve straight-twin DOHC 250cc engine and will feature Throttle-by-Wire (TBW) system and selectable three-way engine mode settings. Power figures have not been disclosed, yet.
- A newly designed steel pipe truss frame is in place. Also, the bike’s new swing arms are aluminum gull arms, located on the right-side allowing the motorcycle to be slimmer whilst maintaining bank angle.
- The suspension features high rigidity inverted forks for the front, and Pro-link suspension with five-step preload for the rear.
- As for the braking mechanism, the CBR250RR will use 310mm diameter (front) and 240mm diameter (rear) wave discs. ABS will be optional.
Honda plans to begin sales of the all-new CBR250RR in Indonesia and Japan by the end of 2016. And there is a possibility of them bring this to the United States and India…but its a waiting game!
