Expected to launch in Indonesia anytime now.
Ahead of its launch which is expected to take place anytime in Indonesia, the Honda CBR250RR has been teased in a new video by Astra Honda, the Indonesian subsidiary of the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer.
The video gives short glances of the sportbike, which is expected to derive design cues from the Honda Lightweight Supersports concept which was presented at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The teaser points to the sharply-styled muscular tank, a large, ventilated, petal-shaped front disc with ABS and an overall profile resembling the Supersports concept.
According to reports, the Honda CBR250RR will be powered by a 250 cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine developing around the whereabouts of 37 hp, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Honda could also equip its new sportsbike with a Ride-by-Wire technology, given Austrian rival KTM is keen on bringing this technology to more of its products.
Other features on the Honda CBR250RR may include LED headlights and LED taillights, cruise control, multiple driving modes, dual-channel ABS, a fully-digital instrument panel and an upside-down front suspension and a monoshock rear unit.
When launched, the Honda CBR250RR will rival the likes of the KTM Duke 250, Kawasaki Ninja 250 and the Yamaha R25.
