Honda CBR 250R gets Pearl Heron Blue triple tone color. Dearer by Rs.1000

| February 29, 2012 | 22 Comments

Indian premium motorcycles segment is surely getting hotter. Only a few days back, we were the first auto website (and still are the first) to come up with a complete first ride impression of the upcoming Pulsar 200NS. That is not all as we also pitted the 220 against the 200 and tried to rightfully judge if 200NS is a worthy upgrade from the 220F. Now, the bike that is really looking for a tough future ahead has to be the Honda CBR250R. The recently launched KTM 200 Duke will not be the only one to eat into CBR’s sales, what with the news of the new Comet soon coming to us. Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India (HMSI) has been busy working on its flagship Indian bike and has launched a new tri color tone on CBR 250R model. It may be noted that this new version, billed as the 2012 edition, was present at the recently held Delhi Auto Expo.
The Indian wing of the Jap bike maker is surely having a few glitches with the components supplies that come from Thailand.We expect that with the launch of the new version of the baby CBR, the quality blips will cease to exist.The new version is dearer by Rs.1000 bucks and it remains to be seen if merely a paintjob can push the sales of the bike.
The 2012 CBR250R Standard is available at a price of Rs 1.44 lakh (non ABS) and Rs 1.69 lakh (C-ABS).What can really turn tables in favor of the Honda is the upcoming CBR150R that will be priced at INR 1.15 lakhs. But another story for another
time. Watch out for the space!

  5. Nothing has happened to CBR sales. And what does make motoroids believe the brand CBR is in trouble. All I have seen is hype on other launches (and I am sure with days to come that stupid hype created by yourself will die down with people coming to their senses very soon and see the true value the products they own). Do you have figures to show if the sales have been dwindling for CBR 250? If so bring them on please. Do not shoot in dark and especially just to create a news. The thing is this bike has been maligned to such a degree that I am fed up listening to this standard relation CBR=bad quality. They had issues who doenst have issues but the performance is unmatched and which brand in India gives a prompt service name one please. Nobody. Hence thinking that Honda means X, Y and Z which all equal to products who don't make any profits or always are behind the competition or they produce two wheelers with least charm is misleading. This is what I have seen all over motoroids each time I saw an article or post on this particular bike the CBR 250. Motoroids please stop becoming a site like all and sundry and stand for what you proclaim. A fair motor journal albeit online.

    Think Honda may have missed a trick by not upgrading the CBF stunner to a 150 – 200 cc engine & use better graphics on it. With Bajaj 200NS & KTM Duke the CBR 150 may not have many takers as it loses out to their power-2-weight.

  14. Well one of my friends booked the new one…surprisingly it costs 1.72 now. Well is it just the colour or do I smell the rumoured ECU keeda that was in the news.
