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 chiselled 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. honda cbr250rr official image side profile
