The Honda CBR250RR has finally shown itself to the world, after having been unveiled in Indonesia – and from we’ve just seen – we think it would be safe to say that it has what it takes to make one go weak in the knees. It is the first Honda motorcycle in Indonesia to be produced with a high-displacement motor, but will hit the showrooms in the country only by the end of this year.
Nestled between the frame is an all-new water-cooled, 4-stroke, 2-cylinder 250cc motor; the bike will also feature a throttle-by-wire system with three engine mode settings. Up-front, the 250RR sports a somewhat identical theme with the CBR range; also notice the modernistic and attractive LED headlamps. Honda says that the new steel pipe truss frame adds to strength and flexibility. The twin exhausts on one side give it big-bike appeal, taking it to the levels of the litre-class superbike segment. At the front, the bike boasts of high-rigidity inverted forks and Pro-link suspension at the rear.
At the moment, Honda has remained tight-lipped about the CBR250RR making its foray into the Indian market, but going by the competition here, we predict that it will make it to our shores perhaps sometime later next year. A fresh video of the bike accelerating reveals a very unique and sporty exhaust note of the bike. So boys and (biker) gals, start saving up – as this could be your next ride.
