Honda’s Indonesian subsidiary has announced a new product unveil on 25th of July. Considering that the Honda CBR250RR’s teaser video was released by Honda Indonesia last week, it’s safe to assume that the vehicle to be launched next week is indeed the eagerly anticipated quarter litre sportsbike.
Previewed by the Lightweight Super Sports concept at the Tokyo Motor Show last year, the CBR250RR sports an aggressive design.
The motorcycle which is developed to go head on with the Yamaha R25/R3 will come packed with technology. Going by the leaked patents, we expect the production ready CBR250RR to be equipped with LED headlamps and a fully digital instrument console.
The bike is also reported to boast of ride-by-wire technology which enables multiple riding modes, a first for the compact sportsbike segment. Dual-channel ABS, USD front fork, rear monoshock, adjustable clip-on handlebar, and meaty tyres are the other noteworthy features.The CBR250RR is based no the Lightweight Super Sports concept pictured here.
The final details of the powertrain are under wraps as of now but the displacement will be around 250 cc. The twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine is expected to be a high revving unit that can dish out around 40 PS. A 6-speed gearbox will transmit the power.
