Honda CBR 250R Overview
The quarter litre that started the quarter litre revolution in this country. Yes, the ninja 250 brought with it more performance and a twin-cylinder engine, but at almost double the price it was not going to set the sales charts on fire. This Honda has got a refined engine,a practical usable power band and quite possibly the best sales and service network in this segment. The looks are good too. Having said that, the suspension is spongy, the stock tyres don't have that much grip and do not have as sharp response as the gnat on Red Bull R15. Don't forget to take the Ninja 300 and the KTM 390 for a spin, before committing.
Honda CBR 250R Engine & Transmission
The engine is a 250cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, smooth revving unit that produces around 25bhp and 23 Nm of the torquey stuff. The engine is a smooth unit, with just a little bit of vibrations in the top end. The transmission is a good six speed affair and is fabulous at meeting the demands of the engine and your wrist. Overall a match that shaadi.com could advertise.
Honda CBR 250R Mileage
If ridden with a sane wrist, the bike can easily give at least 30 kms to a litre of fuel.However, that would not be the case, so expect around 23-25 kmpl, which if you notice the speedo, is not bad at all. Moreover, its average is better than most of the bikes in its segment.
Honda CBR 250R Performance and Handling
If you are stepping up from a commuter, you would feel a strange world, where everything passes you by in a flash. The power upgrade is remarkable, the sitting position is not that painful and engine is as happy to rev as a Labrador's tail at the mention of fetch. The power is adequate, for Indian traffic conditions at least, the bike will easily do 120-130 kmph all day long. The Ninja is more powerful and more aggressive, but this one is, in a strange way, more suited for this country. The brakes are better on the ABS version. Overall a brilliant bike, with flaws for sure, but which, over time for sure, will be called quirks.
