Near Production Honda CBR250RR concept unveiled ahead of Tokyo Motor Show debut
Honda has unveiled a near production Lightweight Supersports Concept motorcycle through a single image. The concept, which is likely to employ the Honda CBR250RR moniker when it goes on sale will make its world premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show towards the end of this month.
The image shows an extremely aggressive fully faired compact sportsbike which is made of numerous sharp edges and accentuated surfaces. Designed with “Strong Presence” as its theme, the matte black finished motorcycle has a long nose with LED daytime running lights, a heavily contoured fuel tank, side fairing panels with low contrast decals, petal discs, single-seat tailpiece and an Akrapovic exhaust system. The riding position appears to be set for track riding.
Technical details have not been revealed yet but the bike is suspected to be packing a new 250 cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine with a power output at least matching the Yamaha R3‘s 42 PS. A six-speed transmission would be harnessing the power. The final production version is expected to offer several upmarket features including ABS
The Honda CBR250RR is likely to be watered down marginally before it meets the assembly line. The twin-cylinder quarter litre warrior would be an ideal fit in HMSI’s portfolio, between the CBR250R and CBR650F.
