Honda CBR250RR To Provide Base For Naked Street Fighter

Honda engineers are planning on producing a Naked Street Fighter model using the CBR250RR motorcycle. Both models are likely to share several components to keep costs in check for Honda.

The CBR250RR by Honda is their most potent quarter-litre motorcycle on the planet. Now, the Japanese manufacturer is planning on producing a Naked Street Fighter version as well. Honda has so far not confirmed this development, however, it is the most likely route.

Powering the Naked Street Fighter version of Honda CBR250RR will be the same 249.7cc parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This engine produces 38.17bhp, along with 23.3Nm of peak torque output and will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

In terms of design, the Naked Street Fighter model will draw parallels to the fully-faired CBR250RR motorcycle. The chiselled fuel tank and a step-up seat will be retained, along with the dual outlet exhaust. Designers will expose the chassis thus, reducing weight and making it agiler.

There is a possibility that Honda could use the CBR250RR as a base for more models. Once the Naked Street Fighter version of Honda CBR250RR is launched it will compete with Kawasaki Z250 and Yamaha MT25 models in the international market. Honda is unlikely to bring the CBR250RR or its Naked Street Fighter avatar to Indian shores.
