Honda has showcased the new CBR250RR based on the Light Weight Super Sports Concept in Indonesia. The company has unveiled the concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The Honda CBR250RR is powered by an all-new 249.7cc parallel twin engine that puts out 38PS of power. While Honda might not bring the CBR250RR in India anytime soon, it is expected to arrive in Japan this year followed by its debut in the Europe and US markets. Get all the details of the new Honda CBR250RR here.

The Honda CBR250RR owes much of its styling to the Light Weight Super Sports Concept. The design uses ultra-aggressive slashes and flat planes to create a very Italian sort of design

 

Honda CBR250RR Red

This is the red colourway for the Honda CBR250RR. It looks friendlier in this and vastly more menacing in grey. Note cool stacked exhaust shapes

The front view, especially with all the graphics, looks a bit busy on the new Honda CBR250RR

The Honda CBR250RR goes on sale in Indonesia and is only expected to go on sale in Japan this year. More markets next year

 

Honda CBR250RR rear view

The Honda CBR250RR is perhaps the most aggressively styled Honda we have ever seen. Could this be the sort of design that’s coming on the new Fireblade due later this year?

 

Honda CBR250RR engine detail

The engine is an all-new liquid-cooled, 8-valve parallel twin that produces 38PS at 12,000rpm. Honda says the engine uses packaging ideas from the RC213V to create an engine as wide as a conventional single

The base frame is a steel trellis with a beefy pivot plate and a slinky rear subframe. The engine is a stressed member of the frame

 

Honda CBR250RR intruments

Isn’t that cool? The dark blue lighting and the white text and graphics make for a modern, cool instrument cluster. Note the bike is in comfort mode and there is a lap timer function visible

 

Honda CBR250RR Left side switch detail

The right switchgear includes the usual light controls plus a switch that looks like it work with a lap timer function

 

Honda CBR250RR instrument cluster

The simple looking instrument panel is all-digital and extremely compact

 

Honda CBR250RR rear detail

The rear wheel wears a 140/17-17 tubeless tyre with a 240mm single disc. ABS is optional

 

Honda CBR250RR swingarm detail

Is that carbon fibre? Chances are it is textured plastic, but the Honda CBR250RR is full of lovely details that remind you of European motorcycles

 

Swingarm detail

Honda calls its aluminium swingarm a ‘gull arm’ implying that the right side is pinched to allow the exhaust to be placed closer to the bike for handling as well as cornering clearance

 

Honda CBR250RR detail

The Honda CBR250RR’s sculpted twin exhausts look very cool. The three slashes are details a lot of Aprilias have though

 

Honda CBR250RR exhaust detail

The twin stacked exhaust is probably a detail born out of the Euro-IV requirements. But Honda’s CBR250RR has the classiest version of the twin exhaust we have seen yet

 

Honda CBR250RR seat detail

That is the single-seat cowl on the Honda CBR250RR

 

Honda CBR250RR head lights

A quartet of LEDs leads the way for the Honda CBR250RR

The Honda CBR250RR owes much of its styling to the Light Weight Super Sports Concept. The design uses ultra-aggressive slashes and flat planes to create a very Italian sort of design

Note the ABS system’s speed pick-up ring on the front rim. ABS, however, is optional. From this angle, it is hard to tell how small the motorcycle really is

 

Honda CBR250RR switch detail

Simple swichgear on the left only has the engine kill switch (the head light is always on). Note the etched Throttle-By-Wire text on the unit

 

Honda CBR250RR rear

Just look at the aggressive panels that are all over the Honda CBR250RR. The tail unit looks stunning and for a small motorcycle, the CBR250RR has some very cool details

 

Honda CBR250RR front fork, brake and tyre

The front brake is a 310mm Nissin unit mounted to the 37mm Showa USD fork. The tyre is a tubeless 110/70-17

 

Honda CBR250RR fork cap

Showa supplies the front 37mm upside-down fork which is non-adjustable

 

Honda CBR250RR detail

The Honda CBR250RR gets throttle by wire which allows Honda to offer three riding modes. Traction control is not listed. ABS is optional

 

Honda CBR250RR top view

Look at those extensions on the top of the tank! Honda’s new CBR250RR is so aggressively styled! That is a 14.4-litre tank
