Honda’s principal Indonesian dealer, Astra-Honda, has released a teaser video of one of the most highly anticipated motorcycles for 2016, the CBR250RR. The CBR250RR made its debut in the form of a sinister looking concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. In June this year, a leaked image, claimed to be of the upcoming CBR250RR, got most of us excited and this new promotional video has made the wait that much harder.
Check out the teaser video of the upcoming Honda CBR250RR:
The teaser video reveals certain details about the upcoming quarter-litre from Honda’s stable. We could certainly see some bits of the tank’s design along with the RR badge on the fairing. The teaser video also reveals the upside down telescopic fork upfront and petal disc brake that we already saw on the concept motorcycle. We could also see the exhaust that was earlier revealed through leaked images. While the video does not reveal a specific launch date, it would be safe to assume that we would see the final product in the upcoming months.
Mechanical details are yet unknown but the digital cockpit on the concept showed a heady a 14,000 rpm redline. The new quarter-litre is expected to receive a parallel twin-cylinder 250cc liquid-cooled motor with ride-by-wire technology and different riding modes. Power output figures are expected to be around 35 bhp which is in the range of what the current breed of quarter-litres from Japan are delivering.
The 2016 Honda CBR250RR will initially be manufactured in Thailand, where its rivals will include the Yamaha R25, the Kawasaki Ninja 250, the KTM RC250, and BMW Motorrad’s G310R. As reported earlier, the CBR250RR, with its premium set of features such as LED lights and upside down front fork, is likely to carry a relatively hefty price tag.
