If launched in India, Honda CB250R will go against the KTM Duke 250, Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, Yamaha FZ25, Suzuki Gixxer 250.

Honda has launched the updated CB250R in Malaysia at a price of 23,999 RPM, which is equal to 4.27 lakhs when converted. The CB250R is a neo-retro motorcycle that has received a number of mechanical updates. The motorcycle is not expected to be released in our country because the CB300F and CB300R are already available.

The CB250R now has Showa’s Big Piston Separate Function Inverted Fork in the front. A mono-shock with five adjustability steps is located at the rear. Honda also added a new LCD instrument cluster, which now includes a gear position indicator as well as other information.

The CB350R’s engine is a 249 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 27.6 PS and 23.4 Nm of peak torque. In comparison, the KTM Duke 250 has 30 PS of maximum power and 24 Nm of peak torque. The Duke 250 appears to be more powerful on paper, but it is important to note that the CB250R weighs 26 kg less, at 144 kg.

Honda has made no changes to the braking system. As a result, it still comes with a 296 mm front disc and a 220 mm rear disc. As standard, there is a dual-channel anti-lock braking system. The 17-inch wheels, combined with the light weight, make the motorcycle feel agile. The width of the front tyre is 110, while the width of the rear tyre is 150. Honda does provide LED lighting throughout the vehicle.

In India, Honda offers the CB300R, a neo-roadster powered by a 286 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine producing 31.1 PS and 27.5 Nm of peak torque. The Honda CB300R is priced at 2.77 lakh rupees (ex-showroom).
