Do we see Honda CBR250RR in India?
The Honda CBR250RR is a sportbike produced by Honda. It is known for its aggressive styling and performance-oriented features. The has a liquid-cooled, 249cc, parallel-twin engine delivers a strong power output.
It appears Honda has patented the CBR250RR in India, but it is unlikely that the bike will be introduced in the Indian market. The standout feature of the CBR250RR is its liquid-cooled, 249cc, parallel-twin engine, which delivers 38.7hp and 23.3Nm of torque in the standard version and 42hp and 25Nm in the higher-spec SP version.
The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox equipped with a quickshifter. The CBR250RR is slightly lighter than the KTM RC 390, weighing 166kg (168kg for the SP version).
However, it is essential to note that the Honda CBR250RR does not share significant components with any of the Honda two-wheelers sold in India. As a result, the chances of this sportbike being launched in India are slim.
Small capacity market
The small-capacity sportbike market in India is already crowded, with established competitors such as the KTM RC 390 at the affordable end and the parallel-twin Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 dominating the premium segment.
Moreover, the imminent launch of the Yamaha R3 further limits the space for the CBR250RR in the Indian market. Considering that the CBR250RR would be an imported product, it is unlikely to have a competitive price tag. Honda may have patented the CBR250RR in India to protect its intellectual property, similar to trademarks like the Forza 350, Hawk 11 cafe racer, Winner X, and NS125LA scooters.
While the specific details of the CBR250RR may vary depending on the model year and market, it typically features advanced technologies such as fuel injection, a multi-function digital instrument cluster, LED lighting, and high-quality suspension components. It is often praised for its nimble handling and responsive performance.
