Honda CBR250R makes a comeback in its 2018 avatar, missed to impressed many of us again.
Out of the market for over 11 months, the Honda CBR250R has made its comeback in the Asian market with a small list of changes. Expectations from Honda for getting the CBR250RR or even the CBR300R have been turned down as the CBR250R relaunches. Honda should have at least packed the bike with some cool list of features. Alongside the Pearl Sports Yellow, Sports Red and Vibrant Orange (Repsol) colours, the automaker is also offering Mars Orange and Striking Green colours.
Powered by the same 249.6cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, it produces the same 26.5 PS of power at 8500 RPM and 22.9 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. However, the engine is now BS4 complaint and the bike gets ABS as standard. Other features include AHO with an all-new LED headlight and new graphics which give it a fresh look. The cluster also gets red touches for a fresh look yet remains the same analogue-digital unit.
There are not many changes that have been done mechanically except for the CBR250R being BS4 compliant and the list of visual updates is very small reminding that this is still an old schooler. Price for the BS4 Honda CBR250R is yet to be revealed. Question is how many of you guys will still buy the CBR250R over the Bajaj Dominar, KTM Duke 390 and TVS Apache RR 310.
