A recent media report emerging from Indonesia suggests that a Honda CBR250RR based naked bike is under development. The sharply styled fully faired CBR250RR has been teased ahead of its world debut later this year.
Not much is known about either of the products except the fact that both will house a twin-cylinder 250 cc liquid-cooled engine. The naked variant is likely to have a slightly different state of tune compared to its faired sibling.
The CBR250RR is estimated to have a power output in the vicinity of 40 PS. Both motorcycles will employ a 6-speed gearbox. Features like LED headlamps, fully digital instrument console are expected to be carried forward to the naked model as well.
In terms of design, the upcoming quarter litre Honda street fighter is likely to adopt new bodywork without losing the aggressive character of the CBR250RR. The twins would lock horns with the Yamaha R3 and MT-03 siblings.
Honda’s compact sportsbike onslaught comes in time to take advantage of the global trend that is favoring quarter litre motorcycles. The new Honda twins will cater to both novice riders who are entering the world or performance bikes and experienced riders who are looking for an affordable yet capable set of wheels.
