Honda CBR250RR concept (Lightweight Supersports) unveiled at 2015 Tokyo Motor Show [58 photos]
The Honda Lightweight Superports concept which previews the CBR250RR production model has been unveiled at the ongoing 2015 Tokyo Motor show. The Honda CBR250RR will be a powerful track focused machine which will be positioned above the existing single-cylinder CBR250R.
The mean looking concept is finished in matte black color theme with cabon fibre inserts throughout and this accentuates its myriad of sharp surfaces. The angry looking front fascia houses blue illuminated LED slits in place of headlamps – something that would be watered down on the production model. The massive full fairing completely covers up the mechanicals save for a part of crankcase.
The funky digital instrument console sure to be retained by the production model. The muscular fuel tank too is heavily contoured to go well with rest of the motorcycle and the sculpted tailpiece with split seats and twin blue LED brake lights is a pure superbike stuff. The concept is equipped with telescopic front fork and monoshock rear suspension, a petal disc brake at each wheel, clip-on handle bars and Akrapovic exhaust system.
The engine details are not revealed yet but the closer observation reveals twin exhaust manifolds, indicating that the concept houses a compact liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine whose displacement is estimated to be around 250 cc. Expect the power output to be somewhere around 35-40 PS.
