The new Honda CBR250RR is an all-new motorcycle that exactly different than the older generation of CBR250R. The machine structured basing a brand new lightweight truss frame. The steel pipe truss frame is significantly lighter but stronger that ensures maximum stiffness and stability.
Accordingly, the swing arm also redesigned. Now it’s aluminum gull arm that a bit sliced in the right side to get better placement of the bulky exhaust pipe. Here the wheels are featured with light weighted 7-spoke aluminum alloy rims with wider tubeless type tires. The tires are 110mm in front and 140mm in the rear

2019 Honda CBR250RR – Engine Feature & Performances
The new Honda CBR250RR is an all-new machine that comes with newly developed parallel-twin engine & electronic updates. The engine is a four-stroke and liquid cooled engine that featured with DOHC 8-valves. Hence, this Supersports tuned engine compresses in the ratio of 11.5:1 where the fuel supplied by the PGM-FI injection system.
This highly calibrated engine profiled with higher rev characteristics. Hence with significant high rev operation, it produces the peak power of 28.5kw@12,500RPM and the torque of 23.3NM@11,000RPM. So, you can see the performance figures are leveled in a higher line that’s twisting in terms of quarter-liter engine.
Coming to the electronic updates the throttle cut off the conventional cable control system. Honda adopted the TBW, therefore, Throttle-By-Wire to offer optimal control in any throttle position. The feature shadowed from the bigger RC213V model and CBR250RR is the first quarter-liter model that has a TBW system.
Hence Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) positioned in throttle-bar that detects the twisting position and send signals to the ECU. Thus the ECU controls the entire intake and fuel injection system electronically. So this feature brings a more précised feel when rolling in situations.
New Downdraft Intake & 3-Step Riding Mode
Coming to the next, the engine intake system also enhanced in a new dimension. Honda adopted downdraft air intake design in this new power grinder. Here the air box is larger with superbike inspired front air intake tunnel. Later the dual intake channel is directly forwarded to the intake valves. Resulting, the new design allows a bulk RAM and shorter path for the air-fuel mixture.
Finally, in this new machine, Honda provided three different engine modes like Comfort, Sport & Sport+. Accordingly, riders have the freedom to avail economy, moderate and thrust riding mode. Hence the rider can run in the economy or further can run in the optimum frequency of fun. So whatever the rider’s choice, with updated intake channel and developed electronic mapping the engine provides responsive solid acceleration and superior performances.
