The eagerly anticipated Honda CBR250RR quarter litre supersports motorcycle has been teased for the first time, signalling that the world premiere is not far away. The bike was previewed by Lightweight Supersports concept at the Tokyo Motor Show last year.
The teaser confirms that the production version will indeed by called as the CBR250RR. The design stays faithful to that of the concept.
The aggressive multi-surface fuel tank with matte finish sets the tone for the design. Highlights include clip-on handlebars, split seats, contrast red finish for the tailpiece, USD front fork and single front disc. We can also expect the quarter litre contender to sport LED headlamps and a fully digital instrument console.
The teaser also shows that the CBR250RR is equipped with ABS. Powertrain details are scarce as of now but we expect a 250 cc twin-cylinder high-revving motor which is mated to 6-speed transmission. A power output in the vicinity of 45 PS would complement the racy looks. We expect the CBR250RR to be available with a number of performance enhancing accessories.
The motorcycle would be aiming to take advantage of the booming compact sportsbike market worldwide. It would target both budding riders as well as experienced ones.
