The Honda CBR250RR Custom Concept and the Honda CRF 250 Rally made their Japan premiere at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Here are the bikes’ live images from the show.
Honda CBR250RR Custom Concept:
The Honda CBR250RR Custom Concept has an all-white theme, with subtle red accents on the bodywork. The alloy wheels are also white. Other notable additions to this concept bike include carbon fibre Akrapovic performance exhaust, tank pad, and a carbon fibre rear fender. The mechanical underpinnings of the motorcycle are likely to be the same as the normal variant.
The Honda CBR250RR draws power from a 249cc in-line 2-cylinder DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The powerplant punches out 38 PS of power at 12,500 rpm, and 23 Nm of torque at 11,000 rpm. Ride-by-wire controls the throttle and features three riding modes- Sport, Sport+ and Comfort. The engine mates with a 6-speed transmission. For suspension, the motorcycle uses inverted front forks with gold finish; and Pro-Link monoshock at the rear. Brakes include 310 mm front and 240 mm rear petal discs, both with ABS.
Manufacturer's suggested retail price for the stock bike starts from 756,000 Yen in the Japanese market for the non-ABS model, and 806,760 Yen for the ABS model.
Honda CRF 250 Rally:
The Honda CRF 250 Rally is essentially a dirt bike that is street legal. The bike features distinct Rally-style bodywork, with a tall windscreen and a beak-type front fender. The twin headlamps are uniquely asymmetrical LED units. The indicators are LED as well, but the tail light is of bulb type. The instrument cluster is an all-digital affair. There’s also a large lockable toolbox on the left side of the rear sub-frame to store small items.
Powering the Honda CRF 250 Rally is a single cylinder 249.6cc DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. It generates 18.2 PS of power at 8,500 rpm and 22.6 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. The engine pairs with a 6-speed transmission with hydraulic clutch. Cycle parts include 43 mm upside down front fork and a Pro-Link rear monoshock. The bike comes to a halt using 256 mm front and 220 mm rear petal discs, with dual channel ABS. The bike costs 702,000 Yen (MSRP) for the ABS variant in Japan.
