For Honda, Honda CBR250R has brought the same popularity in the two-wheeler sector as Honda City brought in the car sector. The bike because of its competitive pricing and breathtaking performance qualities became an immediate success in the 250 CC segment. The bike impacted the sale of both Yamaha R15 and Kawasaki Ninja 250R and the reason why it succeeded was the pricing as Yamaha offers the R15 at 1.07 Lakh sporting a 150 CC engine and Bajaj Kawasaki offered Ninja at around 3 Lakh.
The pricing of the above two helped CBR move ahead as it is rightly priced around Rs. 1.5 Lakh. But now the brand is focusing on the 150 CC bike segment as it is the most popular and successful segment of the market as is being exploited by every other manufacturer.
