The Honda CBR250RR has been on sale for quite some time (not in India). At the ongoing 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda Motor Company showcased a new Customized Concept of the CBR250RR.
Seen in a shade of white and with red stripes, the customized concept comes with the same overall design. Except for a few changes like new white alloys, racing tyres, race-spec Akrapovic exhaust, carbon fiber tyre hugger, etc.
Honda CBR250RR’s twin cylinder motor will be able to generate peak power of 38.7 at 12,500 rpm while the peak torque output stands at 23 Nm at 10,500 rpm. The latest Honda is propelled by a 249.7 cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which benefits from throttle-by-wire technology as expected. Transmission is a 6-speed unit. The engine breaths via 8-valves. Below is the detailed specs of the bike.

New Honda CBR250RR is 2,060 mm long, 724 mm wide, 1,098 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 1,389 mm. The motorcycle has a ground clearance and ride height of 145 mm and 790 mm respectively. The aggressive fuel tank can hold 14.5 litres.
Coming back to design, the CBR250RR is easily the sharpest looking quarter litre sportsbike on the planet right now. A tall windscreen, angry-looking headlamps, edgy fairing panels, sporty tailpiece with split seats and air-intakes, twin canister exhaust system and meaty tyres make up for a mean character.
Sadly, it is not on sale in India. Though, the bike was recently patented in India, but it is still not clear whether it will be launched here or not.
