The 2011 Honda CBR250R is a lightweight and compact sportsbike
which offers fun, responsive handling, in an easily managed
and confidence building package.
The new Honda CBR250R is available in two versions; the CBR250R
and the CBR250R ABS which is equipped with an Anti-lock Brake
System - a first for small displacement sports bikes.
Powering the Honda CBR250R is a single-cylinder, fuel injected
engine which provides excellent fuel economy, and features a
broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque. The output
figures for the engine stand at 26 hp @ 8,500 rpm, and 17 lb-ft
Because Honda have fitted the engine with a counterbalancer,
the CBR250R's engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow
overall dimensions and power advantages of a single cylinder,
along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.
The 2011 Honda CBR250R features front and rear hydraulic disc
brakes. According to Honda, the single front disc helps keep
things simple and lowers unsprung weight. But it could also
be argued that they tried to save some money.
The Honda CBR250R uses a single-shock adjustable rear suspension
system that not only gives you a smooth ride, but allows you
to tailor the ride to suit your style and needs.
The low seat height of the Honda CBR250R means that it will
fit a wide variety or riders - and it'll be especially useful
for those riders who weren't blessed with the 'tall gene'. Being
able to get both feet flat down when waiting at traffic lights
will be a welcome feeling to many budding sport bike riders.
A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail, and standard
passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you
go riding - another example of the Honda CBR250R's versatility.
