Honda unveiled the highly anticipated 2011 Honda CBR250R, which is set to fill the slot between its 125cc and 600cc sportbikes. The newly launched 2011 Honda CBR250R gets inspiration from the 2010 Honda VFR1200F sports tourer and the CBR1000RR sportbike.
The all-new CBR250R model features a newly-developed liquid-cooled 249cc 4-stroke 4-valve single-cylinder DOHC engine mated to a six-speed transmission.
It is able to meet Euro 3 emission standards due to Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection System (PGM-FI) and an oxygen sensor that comes along with a catalyzer placed inside the exhaust pipe.
In terms of safety, 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).
Honda released a statement, saying that the new CBR was developed as part of the company’s aim to come up with 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.” Honda said that what it envisioned was to create the “Sport Quarter for One World, CBR250R.”
