The Honda Difference.

The new CBR250R offers the perfect balance of beginner friendly features and the typical Honda refinement that more experienced riders will appreciate. Light weight, superb handling, excellent power and unmatched build quality and attention to detail combine all that with Honda’s famous reliability and the new CBR250R is an instant winner.

Counterbalance Shaft Because it features a counterbalancer, the CBR250R engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi cylinder bike.

Single Cylinder Engine A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CBR250R. It's light, simple, returns excellent fuel economy, and features a broad powerband with plenty of low revving torque just what you want in a first motorcycle.

Fuel Injection Fuel injection means the new CBR250R starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel economy.

Layered Style Fairing Take a close look at the CBR250R's unique bodywork, which is designed for style and functionality. It routes airflow for both engine cooling and rider comfort, while creating a unique sportbike style.

Analog/Digital Instrumentation The CBR250R's digital gauges with analog tachometer provides vital riding information in a styled, hi-tech instrumentation package.

Combined Anti lock Brake System Our Combined ABS can be a big help in making controlled stops in less than ideal conditions. Like on wet pavement, or when there's sand on the road or other debris. It's a perfect choice whether you're using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun since it helps you stop with added confidence.

Disc Brakes The new CBR250R features front and rear hydraulic discs for excellent stopping power and brake feel. The single front disc helps keep things simple and lowers unsprung weight, too.

Pro-Link Rear Suspension The CBR250R uses a single shock pre-load adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride, but helps enhance handling as well, just as on some of our larger sport models.

Low Seat Height A low 30.5" seat height does more than help make sure the CBR250R fits a wide range of riders. It makes it easier to put your feet down at stoplights and in parking lots–a big confidence builder.

Passenger Ready A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail, and standard passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding–another example of the CBR250R's versatility.

Underseat Storage Removing the rear passenger seat provides a lockable area to throw a map, gloves, or a spare set of sunglasses.
