The dual headlamp section looks menacing and the angular fairing too makes the Race 250 a sporty-looking motorcycle. Moreover, the rear end is sharp and sleek and from some angles, it might remind you of the new Benelli 302R. Speaking of powertrain, the bike is powered by a 249.4cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that churns out 27 hp of power and 23 Nm of torque.
Suspension system of this motorcycle comprises of USD forks at the front along with a rear monoshock. The Race 250 comes to a halt with the help of a single disc brake fitted at both ends while an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) will be offered as standard.
