Honda launches new sporty tri-colour in CBR 250R

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd (HMSI) entered the high performance 250 cc segment with its affordable global sports bike - CBR 250R in March 2011. Since its introduction, the model has received  overwhelming  acceptance among customers and critics
leading to become 'India’s Most Awarded Motorcycle of 2011'.

To further delight customers, Honda launched 'Pearl Heron Blue' - the new stunning tri-colour sporty option in CBR 250R. This is in addition to the two existing dual-tone colour options - Candy Ruby Red (with Accurate Silver Metallic) and Asteroid Black Metallic (with Accurate Silver Metallic).

CBR 250R’s newly developed liquid-cooled 250 cc, 4-stroke, 4-valve single-cylinder DOHC engine delivers 25 bhp power and 22.9 nm torque. The model  incorporates Combined Anti-lock Braking System (World first in 250 cc motorcycle category). The electronically controlled fuel  injection technology - PGM-FI significantly enhance performance and fuel efficiency while O2 Sensor and Catalytic converter make CBR 250R more Eco-friendly and meet Euro-3 Emission norms.

The  dynamic design of CBR 250R is inspired from Honda’s globally successful fun bikes VFR 1200F and CBR 1000RR Fireblade. Its sporty full-cowl body and distinguishing Y-shaped headlights present a highly advanced design full of functional  beauty. The aerodynamic layered style fairing and cowl design enables optimal control of wind both for engine cooling and ride comfort.

Upping the style quotient are 5 spoke aluminum cast wheels, tubeless tyres, stylish rear grip and sporty split seat. Lending a futuristic effect is the brilliant blue LCD backlit instrument panel. Completing the feel & sound are the unique pentagonal muffler and compact exhaust system.

CBR 250R’s compact single-cylinder engine reduces front projection, provides comfort through 130 mm stroke telescopic front suspension and highly flexible seating position. The light, compact and highly rigid diamond frame offers easy handling and steady control as sports bike. The lockable  utility space and center wet air cleaner with viscous element add to user convenience.

The new CBR 250R comes in two variants – Standard and C-ABS. The existing 2-tone colours are priced at Rs. 1.44 lakh (Standard) and Rs. 1.69 lakh (C-ABS), while the new tri-colour option comes at Rs. 1.45 lakh (Standard) and  Rs. 1.70 lakh (C-ABS). The new CBR 250R will be available at all Honda Exclusive Authorised Dealerships starting early March, 2012.

“We revolutionised performance category in India with the launch of CBR 250R in March’11. With global styling, advanced technology and high performance at very affordable price, CBR 250R has become the favorite of biking enthusiasts across India. The model garnered 17 prestigious awards including ‘Indian Motorcycle of the Year – 2011’ (IMOTY) by key auto critics. Now, continuing this legacy in 2012, we have enhanced the aesthetic appeal of CBR 250R and introduced the new Pearl Heron Blue tri-colour to cater to expectations of young Indians”, said Mr. N.K. Rattan (Vice President –Sales, Marketing & Corporate Affairs, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.)
