SCOOP: 4 cylinder Honda CBR250RR coming?

Added in: Honda Bikes

It’s easy to dismiss motorcycle renderings that Japanese magazine YOUNG MACHINE manages to scoop up on its covers. But if the track record of the magazine has to be examined- it has been bang on target.

For instance, the Honda CBR250R, CBR400R, Yamaha R25 and even Honda’s street-legal MotoGP replica now known as the RC213V-S have all been in the magazine’s spotlight in the past, but present day realities. The latest revelation to flash on the covers is the new Honda CBR250RR- the rendering that seems a mix of a Panigale, Fireblade and the CBR650F! Now if people who know what kind of animal the bygone CBR250RR was- should have their ears ringing in glee. A crazy revving four banger with a 20,000 rpm limiter- the 142 kgs 45ps package was nothing short of a legend.

So going by similar lines, if indeed there is a new Honda CBR250RR in the pipeline- we could probably take liberty to assume that the four cylinder scoop does make sense. There was already a four cylinder Kawasaki Ninja 250 doing rumour rounds a few months back and the now Honda CBR250RR possibly hints at opening up of a new inline four segment.

The 250RR rendering shows a twin-spar frame (as on the CBR650F), conventional telescopic forks, single disc brakes at both ends and a beefy rear swingarm (again similar to the 650F)- but for enthusiasts in this part of the world, the case of curiosity would definitely be the engine. And we hope it indeed turns out to be a four pod. Be assured- we’ll be keeping a close watch on this.
