Honda CBR250R

The Honda CBR250R was first introduced in 2011 and was intended primarily for Thailand and India, but is exported to other countries, including Europe and North America. The introduction of the Honda CBR250R was driven by the popularity of the Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Honda's desire to gain market share in the small budget motorcycle market.

It should be noted right away that the Honda CBR250R model has nothing to do with the Honda CBR250RR model produced for the domestic Japanese market from 1986 to 1996. and having a 4-cylinder engine.

Unlike Kawasaki Ninja 250R, the Honda CBR250R has a more interesting appearance, reminiscent of the flagship sports tourist Honda VFR1200F and the availability of versions with a combined ABS system, which was luxury. Also, the Honda motorcycle was equipped with a 1-cylinder engine, while Kawasaki installed a 2-cylinder engine, which made the motorcycle not only more serious, but also allowed to give out a little more performance.

The main feature of the Honda CBR250R is the 249cc, 1-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine producing 26 hp. power and about 24 Nm of torque. The maximum characteristics of the motor were achieved in the range of 6800-10000 rpm.

Other features of the Honda CBR250R include a steel frame, electronic fuel injection (there were no carburetor versions), simple suspension in the form of a conventional telescopic fork and mono-shock absorber, and a 6-speed gearbox.

In late 2014, Honda introduced the successor to the Honda CBR250R, which was the Honda CBR300R, which in appearance resembled the Honda CBR1000RR. The updated model, just like the previous one, was Kawasaki's answer, but to another model - Kawasaki Ninja 300.
