Japanese manufacturer Honda unveiled the CBR 250RR in Indonesia in July 2016. A few weeks back a detailed spec sheet of the model surfaced revealing the power output is 36bhp.
Now, Honda has managed to tweak the powerplant and revised the power output number to 38.1bhp at 12,500 rpm. The new power output makes it the most powerful production quarter litre motorcycle.
The CBR 250RR has a kerb weight of 168kg and the fuel tank is 14.5 litres. The torque output is also revised to 23.3Nm. Honda official revealed that there was an error in the measurement system used by the Indonesian division.
The CBR 250RR gets switchable riding modes, throttle by wire (TBW) system. These features are added to the quarter-litre machine for the first time.
An acceleration position sensor unit is placed at the left end of the throttle grip which measures the throttle input given by the rider. Then, the ECU judges the output characteristics according to the selected riding mode and adjusts the valve opening angle for the throttle body to the TBW motor.
The engine is a brand new 249.7 cc PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) liquid-cooled straight-twin unit. The powerplant is mated to a 6-speed transmission.
The Honda CBR 250RR's booking has started in the Indonesian market. As of now, Honda has no plans to launch this baby CBR in India.
