PT Astra Honda Motor, Honda’s
joint venture company in Indonesia for motorcycle production and sales,
announced the world premiere of the “CBR250RR,” an all-new 250cc sports model
The CBR250RR will be
manufactured in its major market, Indonesia, making it the largest displacement
Honda motorcycle to be manufactured in the country. Honda plans to begin sales
of the all-new sports model in Indonesia by the end of 2016.
Newly Developed Straight-twin
The CBR250RR is powered by a
newly developed water-cooled 4-stroke 4-valve straight-twin DOHC 250cc engine,
which aims for class-leading output performance. The engine is easy to handle
for urban riding, while it is just as comfortable on the circuit, with smooth
output characteristics across the entire revrange. In addition, its
Throttle-by-Wire (TBW) system and selectable 3-way engine mode settings allow
the rider to tap into its linear power output at will, for a superior, solid
Unique Styling presenting Strong and Fast Appearance
The CBR250RR’s front face
inherits the CBR series’ identity with its dual-LED headlights, enhancing its
strong, fast and exciting image. The sharp wedge-shape leading from its low,
long nose to its high, acute tail inspire awe in the eyes of the onlooker.
Newly Developed Frame and Suspension
The CBR250RR’s newly designed
steel pipe truss frame realizes both strength and flexibility. Its swing arms
are Aluminum gull arms, and with the right-side swing arm shaped to reduce
exhaust pipe extrusion, allows the bike to be slimmer, while retaining bank
angle. The suspension features high rigidity inverted forks for the front, and
Pro-link suspension featuring 5-step preload for the rear. For the brakes,
front and rear ABS is available (for the ABS model). Large 310mm diameter
(front) and 240mm diameter (rear) wave discs provide outstanding
The CBR250RR was first
publicly introduced as a concept model, the “Light Weight Super Sports Concept”
at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show last year, catching the attention of many
