Automakers revealed their upcoming offerings and concepts at the Auto Expo 2018, which is currently open for public. At the Honda India’s (HMSI) stall, the automaker unveiled a host of products including the 2018 CBR 250R, which has received several updates including new colour options, decals and a full-LED headlamp. For those not in the know, the model was taken off production last year after it did not receive the mandatory BS-IV upgrade. With all the necessary changes made to the two-wheeler, it has now made a comeback at the Auto Expo 2018.
The 2018 edition of the Honda CBR 250R gets an all-LED headlamp with position lamp. Sporting new elements, the bike looks refreshing and more stylish. It also features new graphics on the body and gets new colour options including mars orange and striking green, in addition to the existing shades. Aside from the above-mentioned styling updates, the bike retains its basic design and continues offering an optional dual-channel ABS system.
As for the power source, the prowess propels on the 249cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with maximum power of 26bhp at 8500rpm against 29.2Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. This is the same unit that powered the previous model and comes linked to a 6-speed gearbox. The suspension set-up on the 2018 Honda CBR250R includes telescopic forks at front and monoshock absorbers at rear. Stopping power is derived from the disc units at both the ends. It is expected that Honda will launch the new version of the CBR 250R in March this year, with prices tagged slightly more than the previous model.
