The Japanese manufacturer’s latest sensation, the CBR250R, has already caused a stir in the motorcycle world, a fact that was not left unnoticed by Honda’s in-house tuner. Mugen has therefore taken the new 250cc sportbike on an upgrade tour, and the result is a hot, mouth-watering ride.

The Honda CBR250R Mugen is a more sporty and aggressive sportbike, mostly thanks to the combination of black and red color scheme.

In addition to that. coming to match the body color, the seat that accommodates the rider and the pillion comes colored in red with Mugen emblems. The Mugen logo is noticeable also on the body, in the front of the bike. The windshield has also been replace with a much more attractive one.

The tank of the CBR250R Mugen also sports gold-colored lines. The alloy wheels have a red line with Mugen writing. To boost power and sporty sound, standard muffler was replaced with an upgraded chromed from Mugen. The engine, however, has been left untouched.

This means the bike is still propelled by the 249 cc four-stroke, four-valve single cylinder DOHC engine that uses liquid cooling and is mated to a six speed transmission. The unit features the company’s Programmed Fuel Injection System (PGM-FI), an oxygen sensor, as well as a catalyzer, in order to meet Euro III emission standards.

Other features of the regular model that can still be found on the Mugen version is the Combined ABS feature, a class-first system that includes a Combined Brake System (CBS) and an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).

Unfortunately for most of us, the Honda CBR250R Mugen is only available in Thailand, where the bike is manufactured.
