The 2017 Honda CBR250RR made its debut in Indonesia in July 2016. Recently, the motorcycle was showcased at the 2016 Indonesian Motorcycle Show. The new 250cc sportsbikes will be available in two variants; ABS and non-ABS. The non-ABS version will cost about IDR 62.9M (£3829) and the ABS version comes with a price tag of IDR 68.9M (£4195).
A quick first glance is more than enough to ascertain that the fully faired supersports motorcycle doesn’t disappoint. As expected, the New Honda CBR250RR is essentially a marginally watered down version of the Lightweight Super Sports concept.
The engine is brand new 249.7 cc PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) liquid-cooled straight-twin unit and it is paired with a 6-speed transmission. Another interesting fact is that the engine is operated via a Throttle-by-Wire (TBW) system that offers three selectable modes. The motorcycle also gets a 310mm disc at the front and 240mm at the rear with optional ABS.
Honda CBR250RR’s twin cylinder motor will be able to generate peak power of 27.1 kW (36.4 BHP) @ 12.500 RPM, while the peak torque output stands at 22.5 Nm @ 10.500 RPM. According to the report by Indonesian Magazine, the new Honda CBR250RR is capable of doing a top whack of 168 km/h. It’s due to be launched in Japan at a later date but there are no plans for it to be sold in Europe, according to a Honda spokesman in the UK.
