RUMOUR – Honda CBR250RR India Debut at 2018 Auto Expo!


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. While we don’t see the Honda CBR250RR India launch taking place anytime in near future, speculations are rife that the bike could be just a little more than a year away from making it to our soil. Here are all the details on Honda CBR250RR India launch date and price. honda cbr250rr india

The CBR250RR gets a very sporty and an aggressive design that make it very attractive. The bike’s dual-LED headlamps, chiseled fuel tank, digital instruments, inverted front forks and other such bits make it a ‘Race Replica’ in true sense. Powering this bike is an all-new twin-cylinder 250cc liquid-cooled engine that outputs 36 BHP and 22.5 Nm. Honda claims the bike is suitable for use on both public roads and race circuit. The bike offers 3 engine modes and Throttle-by-Wire (TBW) technology. The motor comes along with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Honda CBR250RR India Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) Mid-2019

Like we’ve been saying, there’s no official word on the Honda CBR250RR India launch prospects. However, it does make enough sense for Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India to bring this mean machine here as models in the 250cc-300cc category are fast gaining popularity. 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 Price in India

Price (expected) INR 3.5 Lakh

The CBR250RR won’t come cheap. Thanks to high import duties on CBUs, the bike could have a sticker price of as much as INR 3.5 Lakh. At this price point it will rival the likes of Yamaha YZF R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.

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. honda cbr250rr official image side profile
