A sportier and more powerful quarter-litre Honda sportsbike has been in the news for quite sometime now. Young Magazine of Japan has come up with an interesting rendering of the Honda CBR250RR which is expected to be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015 next month.
Whereas the Honda CBR250R adopts a milder tourer friendly character, the upcoming CBR250RR seems to be a trackbred beast with aggressive styling and a forward biased riding stance. The rendering portrays the quarter litre warrior with razor sharp fairing with twin projector headlamps and eye-brow like daytime running lamps. The design inspiration has clearly come from the popular Fireblade litre class superbike.
Technical details of the motorcycle are still scarce but the the Honda CBR250RR which is said to codenamed K64A is most likely to adopt a new twin-cylinder motor to keep pace with its rivals like the Yamaha R25, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and so on.
Given that the competition is getting fiercer by the day in the global compact sportsbike segment, Honda will be packing its contender with top-spec equipment. It’s safe to expect the bike to offer ABS, a fully digital instrument console, an inverted telescopic front fork, etc.
The sportsbike segment in India looks promising and the Honda CBR250RR would fit in nicely in the brand’s portfolio between the existing CBR250R and newly launched CBR650F but it remains to be seen if HMSI would be interested.
