At Rs. 1.63 lakh, the 2018 CBR 250R gets a new LED headlight and a new paint scheme.
At the Auto Expo 2018, two-wheel giant Honda launched the CBR 250R with a price tag of Rs 1.93 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the ABS variant and Rs 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the standard one. Last year, the CBR 250R was discontinued after BS-IV compliant engines were made compulsory. With the Auto Expo, the Japanese manufacturer has brought back the 250R with a BS-IV compliant motor that also gets a new LED headlight and an all-new paint scheme.
The same quarter-litre, liquid-cooled four-stroke motor which churns out 26bhp and 22.9Nm of twist, mated to a six-speed gearbox is powering the 250R 2018 model. The company claims a top speed of 135kph for its new BS IV complaint CBR. This time the bike is equipped with telescopic suspension at the front and pro-link mono shock at the rear. The whole bike weighs 167kg sitting on the twin-spar frame. As far as brakes are concerned, 2018 CBR 250R is launched in two variants- with ABS and without ABS one and gets 296mm breaks at the front and 290mm at the rear.
The bike has been launched against the Apache RR 310, Bajaj 200 RS and the KTM RC200.
