Unveiled at the Honda RevFest event in the first week of August 2015, the updated Honda CBR250R with a new range of color schemes is now available across the showrooms. With the introduction of the refreshed model, Honda has phased out the old color options.
The quarter litre fully faired motorcycle is now available in Black, Pearl Amazing White and Sports Red color options. The aesthetics is spruced up by the sporty decals on the fairing and fuel tank. The alloy wheels, engine, belly pan and silencer guard are all painted in black.
There are no mechanical changes whatsoever. The CBR250R continues to be powered by a very refined 250 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine producing 26.15 bhp and 22.9 Nm of torque. The motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle continues to employ telescopic front forks, rear monoshock, and front and rear disc brakes with optional ABS. Other noteworthy features include clip-on handlebar, digi-analog instrument console and tubeless tyres.
Priced at INR 1.62 lakhs and INR 1.89 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the standard and ABS variants respectively, the Honda CBR250R rivals with the KTM Duke 200 and the newly launched Mahindra Mojo 300. The Japanese compact sportsbike attracts riders who are looking for a sporty yet comfortable motorcycle that would make an effortless tourer.
