The new 2020 Honda CBR250RR will be a lot exciting than before. As you must have read the headline, the new model will not only pack in more power but will offer better and new features as well. Powering the new 2020 Honda CBR250RR will be a parallel-twin motor that is good for developing a maximum power output of 40hp compared to the previous model that used to make 37hp and hence, a 3hp increment. When it comes to the torque output, the engine on the previous model used to make 23Nm and the figure for the new model has not been revealed as of now. The new CBR250RR will also get ride-by-wire technology along with a bi-directional quickshifter.

Not only this, the new model will also come with three riding modes namely Comfort, Sport and Sport+. In terms of aesthetics, the new 2020 Honda CBR250RR looks essentially the same as the previous model and the resemblance with its elder siblings like the CBR650R and CBR1000RR is still very much the same. Apart from this, the new 2020 model will be offered in a new range of colours. What appealed to us the most is a white coloured body with red frame along with golden coloured alloy wheels.

The new 2020 Honda CBR250RR gets upside-down forks upfront along with petal disc brakes at both ends. The new 2020 Honda CBR250RR will be launched in Japan and Indonesia first and when it comes to India launch, it seems highly unlikely at the moment due to the high price tag.  The only quarter-litre fully-faired motorcycle by Honda for the Indian market is the CBR250R but that too will be discontinued once the BS6 emission norms kick in starting next month.

This will leave the space vacant for a Yamaha Fazer 25 challenger. Nonetheless, let’s hope for the best and pray that Honda brings in a more affordable version of the CBR250RR and price it sensibly for it to make sense for the buyers here in India. Stay tuned for more such updates!
