Boon Siew Honda has finally announced that the 2021 Honda CBR250RR will be launched here in Malaysia on 18 December 2020. BSH already informed us that their latest 250cc sports bike will arrive in the local market at the end of the year back in September, and they’re ready to deliver.
In fact, bookings for the 2021 Honda CBR250RR are already being accepted by authorised dealers like Honda BigWing Setapak since the start of October. BSH also stated that this will be the latest model which comes with specs like bi-directional quickshifter, assist/slipper clutch, ride-by-wire throttle system, and selectable riding mode.
Weighing in at just 168kg, the CBR250RR is powered by a 250cc inline-two DOHC engine that produces 41hp at 13,000rpm and 25Nm torque at 11,000rpm. We’ve asked around and we were told that the expected price should be below the RM30,000 mark.
If you happen to be in Japan, you have a choice of four different colour options – Matt Gun Powder Black Metallic, Pearl Glare White, Grand Prix Red and Grand Prix Red (Striped). Its price tag for that region starts from 821,700 yen (around RM33,062) all the way up to 854,700 yen (around RM34,401). That’s 500cc territory, folks.
