It isn’t clear if the model has been completely ruled out for the Indian market. Currently, the Japan based motorcycle manufacturer sells the CBR 250R in the Indian market in the quarter litre segment. The upcoming models are most likely to be updates of its current model range that will be tuned to meet norms such the mandatory Automatic Headlamp On (AHO) and the BS-IV emission standards.
