- CBR250RR new paint scheme launched
- Mechanically remains unchanged
- Won’t come to India soon
Honda has pulled the wraps off the Trico Edition of their quarter-litre motorcycle, the CBR250RR. This variant will be sold in the Malaysian market.
This new paint scheme has been inspired from the brand’s CBR1000RR-R SP superbike. For 2022, other than this new paint scheme, everything else remains unchanged. The reason for this new update was to add some newness to the motorcycle as the company decided to discontinue the red paint scheme for 2022.
In terms of performance too, the CBR250RR remains unchanged. It gets the same 250cc engine that produces 40bhp at 13,000 rpm and peak torque of 25Nm of torque at 11,000 rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox with assist and slipper clutch. Quickshifter comes standard.
The Honda CBR250RR is unlikely to come to India due to its price point. In Malaysia, it is sold for close to Rs 4.7 lakh (ex-showoom). Plus, the Japanese prices their CKD premium models quite high in India, making it generate poor sales.
