Honda has launched its latest product for the fans of motor sport, Motorsport launching a few months ago this is the Honda CBR250 R.
American Honda hasn’t had a 250cc sport bike in its lineup since the VTR250, last seen in dealerships some 20 years ago. Unlike that bike’s V-twin, the CBR250R’s heart is a single-cylinder engine that cranks out a modest 22.3 rear-wheel horsepower at 9000 rpm.
Its piston reciprocates below a four-valve head operated by dual overhead cams, and the whole compact assemblage is water-cooled and fuel-injected for reliability and efficiency. Just thumb the starter button and go.
Like all Hondas, the CBR250R is built to last. The owner’s manual suggests letting the engine stew for 8000 miles between oil changes, and after the initial 600-mile inspection, the valves don’t need attention again until the 16,000-mile mark.
That leaves you with a lot more time and gas money with which to ride and master this small-scale CBR before moving up to the real thing.
