The last MotoGP round in Motegi saw the showcase of the 2019 Honda CBR250RR HRC.
Clad in Honda’s racing tricolour scheme, the colour is inspired by the much bigger Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade.
The colour scheme is still being considered for the Japanese market and if all goes well, they will be able to get it by November this year.
It seems that the Honda CBR250RR is still very elusive when it comes to its major arrival here in Malaysia. While we wait for its uncertain official introduction, Japan is set for its most beautiful variant yet in the form of the 2019 Honda CBR250RR HRC and we are JEALOUS.
The 2019 Honda CBR250RR for the Japanese market (still under consideration) is heavily inspired by its bigger and most powerful sibling in the CBR range, the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. This iconic colour combination which represents Honda’s rich history in racing certainly blends in superbly well with the bike’s sharp lines and edges.
Underneath it all, the 2019 model retains its 250cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine which is able to produce around 37hp at a screaming 12,000rpm and 23Nm of torque at 11,000rpm. Base on the stats, we can see that the bike will be very exciting at a higher rev range that is able to propel the bike to a maximum speed of 170km/h.
Other respectable specifications include:
- Dual-channel ABS system
- USD telescopic forks
- Pro-link rear suspension with a five-step adjustable pre-load
- Full digital console
- All-round LED lights
- Ride-by-wire system with selectable riding modes
The 2019 Honda CBR250RR represented in the HRC colour scheme was showcased last week during the MotoGP round at Motegi to basically conduct a survey on the people’s perceptions of the bike. By the look of things, we won’t be surprised if they fast-track it into production because it is a BEAUTY.
Expected price and time of launch? Around 810,000 Yen (RM29,988) sometime in November (for Japan) if all goes well. We figured that the bike will be globally unveiled during EICMA 2018 in Milan, Italy.
