Honda CBR250RR could get ride-by-wire technology and LED headlights
The Honda CBR250RR is not close to a production ready version as of now. As this is going to be a major product for Honda, the production-spec model is expected to come equipped with some of the latest technologies. If certain rumours are to be believed, then the bike will get ride-by-wire technology as against cables along with LED headlights. Because the motorcycle will be launched in the not so near future, Honda might equip the CBR250RR with these technologies.
The bike was showcased back at the Tokyo Motor Show this year. A lot of details of the bike were revealed at the same event including a 14,000 RPM redline, which is higher than the model retailing in our country presently. No details regarding the powertrain is out in the open as of now except the fact that it will be powered by a 250cc engine that will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Honda CBR250RR’s design is something that caught the fancy of everyone. It looks nothing like any other motorcycle in the quarter-litre space. The masculine fuel tank gets lots of layers with a carbon fibre finished refueller. The side panels, front fender, chain guard and rear tyre hugger look super cool as well in the concept model. We sincerely hope that all of these characteristics are taken further into production.
Other mechanical features will include a linked Ohlins monoshock setup at the rear in addition to an inverted telescopic setup at the front. Retarding power will come from petal disc brakes at both the ends and ABS is also expected to be offered as standard.
The Honda CBR250RR will most likely enter production by March 2016 in Indonesia. Unfortunately, Honda has revealed no plans of bringing the bike to India. Even if it does make it here, pricing will be a key part of its success.
