The motorcycle features throttle-by-wire technology, and much more tech than any other bike in the segment.

The Honda CBR250RR made its world premiere in Indonesia earlier this year. Now, the bike has been officially launched in Indonesia at the ongoing Indonesia Motorcycle Show. Available in two trims, non-ABS and ABS, price ranges from IDR 62.9m (INR 3.2 lakh) to IDR 68.9m (INR 3.52 lakh).

A quick first glance is more than enough to ascertain that the fully faired supersports motorcycle doesn’t disappoint. As expected, the CBR250RR is essentially a marginally watered down version of the Lightweight Super Sports concept.

Though Honda revealed every other detail of the bike at debut months ago, they did not reveal two important details. Its peak power and torque output. At that time, they said that those figures will be revealed once the bike is launched.

Honda CBR250RR’s twin cylinder motor will be able to generate peak power of 27.1 kW (36.8 PS) at 12,500 rpm while the peak torque output stands at 22.5 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.

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.

USD front fork and rear monoshock constitute the suspension system while braking is courtesy of front and rear petal discs. Higher variant will offer ABS.
