Popular Japanese bike maker giant Honda came up with the CBR250RR last year. Ever since its debut, the bike has been in news for all the right reasons. The new quarter-litre bike is based on the Honda Lightweight Supersports concept and looks like a proper track tool.

Here are all the details on Honda CBR250RR India launch date and price.
The CBR250RR gets a very sporty and an aggressive design that make it very attractive.

There are rumours that this bike will make its India debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. Subsequently, it could finally launch in our market by mid-2019.

Honda CBR250RR India – Design Review
The new Honda CBR250RR borrows in plenty from the Lightweight Supersport concept. Hence, the quarter-litre bike looks really sporty with a dual headlamp setup which boasts projectors and LED DRLs. There’s also a huge windscreen to enable the ride to duck down at high speeds. The chiseled fuel tank further enhances the sportiness quotient of the design, Other major highlights of the design include a digital speedo console, split seats, and twin exhausts. We feel that this bike looks sleeker, sharper and sportier than both Yamaha YZF R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
