Honda CBR250RR and CBR300R will not be launched in India, says HMSI Senior Vice President
We hate to break it to you but, according to a report, Honda 2 Wheelers India will not bring the new CBR250RR in the country, at least in the foreseeable future. Speaking to a publication, Yadvinder Guleria, Senior Vice President, HMSI, said that the CBR250RR and the CBR300R would not be launched in the country, but instead, the company would be launching other new products.
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.
Showcased at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show as a concept, the Honda CBR250RR is propelled by a newly developed water-cooled 4-stroke 4-valve straight-twin DOHC 250cc engine mated to a six speed transmission. Available in shades of Racing Red, Anchor Grey Metallic, Mate Gunpowder Metallic, the motorcycle is built up around a steel pipe truss frame.
Features on the CBR250RR include dual LED headlights, two piece LED tail lamp, Throttle-By-Wire, a selectable three way engine mode setting, dual channel ABS, 310 mm and 240 mm disc brakes at the front and rear respectively, upside down telescopic fork upfront and a Pro-link suspension featuring 5-step pre-load for the rear. Currently, the motorcycle is only available in the Indonesian market with Japan launch likely to happen very soon.
