Showcased as a concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show last month, the Honda CBR 250RR has now been rendered as a production ready motorcycle. One of the most important motorcycles that Honda showcased at the show, the twin cylinder CBR 250 cc is expected to enter production in 2016.
Called Honda Lightweight Supersports in its concept avatar (image below), the production version will most likely be called CBR 250RR. Once launched, Honda CBR 250RR will take on the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 250 and the new Yamaha R25.
Compared to the concept, CBR 250RR’s production ready variant imagined by render artist does retain most of the styling features. The muscular fairing now houses rear view mirrors and turn indicators. It also gets twin projector headlamps along with LED DRL strips above. Fuel tank design has been left unchanged, and now features Honda wings logo while the fairing has the CBR sticker. At the rear, you can see the Akrapovic exhaust of the concept being replaced by a standard exhaust, resembling very much like the on on-board the existing CBR 250R.
Speaking about the engine, the new twin cylinder 250 cc liquid cooled 4 stroke engine on board the new Honda CBR 250RR is expected to generate 35-40 PS. Other features of the bike includes upside down front suspension, mono-shock at the rear, front and rear disc brakes with ABS, digital speedometer, split seats, LED taillights, clip-on handlebars, etc.
It is still not certain whether the Honda CBR 250RR will be launched in India or not. If it does get launched, it will be priced in the range of INR 3 lakh.
