Chatter in the Indonesian media suggests that the Honda CBR250RR compact superpsort motorcycle will benefit from the ride-by-wire technology. This feature would make for sharper throttle response and better power delivery compared to the conventional cable operated system.
The new quarterlitre variant will be positioned as a more focused and upmarket alternative to the CBR250R single-cylinder motorcycle. Previewed by a design concept at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015, the Honda CBR250RR will feature a razor sharp design with multiple surfaces, a futuristic fully digital instrument console, LED taillights and quite possibly, LED headlights.
The motorcycle will employ a new parallel-twin 250 cc liquid-cooled engine details of which are being closely guarded. It’s safe to assume that the latest Honda sportsbike will employ a 6-speed transmission. Expect the power output to be in the vicinity of 45 PS.
Going by the concept, the CBR250RR will be suspended by an inverted telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Both front and rear wheels employ petal disc brake each. ABS is expected to be a standard feature.
