2017 Honda CBR250RR Announced

Hondas Indonesian subsidiary Astra Honda announced the new CBR250RR, the production version of the Light Weight Sports Concept showcased last year at the Tokyo Motor Show. The double-R is a significant step up from the CBR250R, offering aggressive styling, an all-new Twin-cylinder engine, throttle-by-wire, selectable engine modes and other features usually expected from larger-displacement sportbikes.

At the moment, the CBR250RR has only been confirmed for Indonesia and Japan; Honda will likely introduce a larger-displacement version for western markets to compete against models like Yamahas YZF-R3 and KTMs 390 Duke.

The CBR250RR is powered by a newly developed water-cooled four-stroke parallel-Twin. No performance figures are available yet, but Honda says it is aiming for class-leading performance. A throttle-by-wire system allows for three selectable power modes to suit different needs.

The chassis is comprised of a steel truss frame with an asymmetric aluminum swingarm design with the right side shaped so the exhaust can be positioned closer to the center line, allowing for a slimmer shape and more lean angle. The swingarm is hooked up to a Pro-link monoshock with five-step preload adjustability. Up front, the CBR250RR uses an upside-down fork.

A twin-piston Nissin caliper is paired with the single 310mm front disc while a single-piston caliper is fitted to the 240mm rear rotor. ABS is optional, at least for the Indonesian market.
