Japanese manufacturer Honda today took the wraps off a model that is set to conquer the world, filling in the huge gap between its 125cc and 600cc sportbikes. A model very much anticipated until now, the design of the newly launched 2011 Honda CBR250R is inspired from the 2010 Honda VFR1200F sports tourer and the CBR1000RR sportbike. The all-new CBR250R model is powered by a newly-developed liquid-cooled 249cc 4-stroke 4-valve single-cylinder DOHC engine coupled with a six-speed transmission, and that meets Euro 3 emission standards. This is thanks to Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection System (PGM-FI) as well as an oxygen sensor, accompanied by a catalyzer fitted inside the exhaust pipe. Safety wise, the machine packs Combined ABS (a world first for a 250cc-class road sports model), which makes the bike more stable by bringing together a Combined Brake System (CBS) and an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). “What was on our minds during the development of new CBR? It was to realize an attractive quarter model that can meet the demands of the times to come and provide customers all over the world with joy and at an affordable price. What we aimed at was the 'Sport Quarter for One World, CBR250R.’” a statement fro Honda reads. The 2011 CBR250R will now enter production in Thailand, with sales launching in November. It will be launched as a global model for export to a wide range of countries such as the ASEAN countries, Japan, Europe, North America, and Australia. In the company’s home market, namely Japan, the CBR250R is scheduled to begin sales in the spring of 2011. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will also start production of the CBR250R next spring and extend sales from India to South America. Pricing, which varies depending on the market, is yet to be announced.
