Honda has introduced a new Pearl Glare White colour variant for its quarter-litre, the Honda CBR 250RR for the Japanese market. The colour variant is only for the ABS model, and will be available from April 20, 2018.
The new colour model adds to the already existing Matte Gun Powder Black Metallic, Sword Silver Metallic and Victory Red. The white colour version, along with Black and Silver cost JPY 806,760, MSRP. The Victory Red colour costs JPY 828,360, MSRP.
The Honda CBR 250RR made its world debut in July 2016, and its design is radically different from the quarter-litre CBR that Honda sells in India. Honda introduced the bike in Japan in April 2017. The bike gets an all-LED lighting system, ride-by-wire throttle, and an in-line twin engine. The 249 cc DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection makes 38 PS at 12,500 rpm; and 23 Nm of peak torque at 11,000 rpm. The engine works in conjunction with a 6-speed gearbox.
The diamond type frame suspends on upside down front fork and ProLink monoshock at the rear with 5-stage preload adjustability. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 110-section front and 140-section rear tyres. The bike comes to a halt using petal disc on both ends, with dual-channel ABS.
