Honda may not bring this motorcycle to India but it’s worth a mention, especially considering the fact that it could be a perfect rival for the recently launched Yamaha FZ25. The two-wheeler manufacturer recently extended its product portfolio in Brazil with the launch of the new CB Twister 250.
The motorcycle features a 249.5cc OHC, single cylinder air cooled engine with fuel injection. The engine dishes out 22.4 bhp of power at 7,500 rpm and 22.4 Nm torque at 6,000 rpm and comes mates to a six speed transmission. Folks in Brazil have an option select a ethanol powered version too which is good for 22.6 bhp of power and 22.8 Nm of torque. A 16.5 liter fuel tank seems like a perfect platter to serve that engine and should offer a decent range between refueling.
Braking duties are performed by 276mm single disc upfront and a 220mm disc at the rear. The CB Twister 250 also comes equipped with an optional ABS version. Other bits include a full digital instrument cluster and a LED tail light. The motorcycle is built around a diamond frame. Suspension department comprises of a conventional telescopic fork upfront and a monoshock at the rear.
The motorcycle rides on 110-70/17 section tyre upfront and a 140-70/17 section tyre at the rear which is near identical to what the new quarter-litre Yamaha uses.
As aforementioned, the possibility of this motorcycle coming to Indian shores is bleak. Do mention your views about the quarter-litre CB Twister through the comments section below.
