THE ALL NEW HONDA CBR 250RR REVIEW

REVIEW:

Honda has come up with its lightweight, highly efficient, twin cylinder bike named as ‘CBR250RR’. The ‘Light Weight Super Sport Concept’ (CBR250RR) was unveiled earlier at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The production model has now been unveiled in Indonesia on July 25. Although doubtful to be launched in India, but if launched it is expected to sweep away its rivals with its high performance figures, design and much more.

The key rivals of CBR250RR in India would be Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha R3.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Top Speed:179 kmph
  • Fuel Tank Capacit:14 litres
  • No. of Cylinders:2

DESIGN AND STYLE:

Since the 250RR comes from the CBR series, so undoubtedly it is going to have a head turning design. It features some of the sharpest curves for cheating the wind over its passage.

It has been designed with the key phrase “strong presence” which is so depicted by its next-generation super sport concept model, low crouching position and long nose which gives the rider a sense of speed. Its plane architecture indicates its hardness and solidity whereas the sharp edges give it the aggressive look.

On the exterior, the bike features matte-black-based low-contrast graphics which adds more to its remarkablility.
