The Honda CBR250RR is not considered to be the fastest quarter litre production bike for no reason. Tipping the scales at 165kg, it makes way more power than it needs to. Being a race replica though (RR, remember), it has to offer a blanket for rider safety. After all, the only ones who can fully appreciate this bike’s capabilities without rider aids on are seasoned riders. For the rest, there is more.
Honda CBR250RR Features
|Three riding modes|
|ABS as optional|
|310mm front disc|
|Preload adjustable rear suspension|
|Throttle by wire|
|Fully digital instrument cluster|

While the Honda CBR250RR may not offer much in terms of features. It does not need to either. It is a quarter litre racing motorcycle which will be bought by people for track days. Since it is not as powerful as a middleweight superbike, it will be used by people to learn how to ride on a racetrack. For that purpose, it offers enough features while keeping its weight in check.
Honda CBR250RR Colours
|Matte Gun Powder Black Metallic|
