Honda CBR250R BS4 Engine Edition
Honda CBR250R BS4 is getting ready for the launch this Year or in the early 2018. The CBR250R has been the only full faired racing spirit 250 cc motorcycle available in India since long time. The company contained the outlook of the CBR250R from the year 2011 to till date, with very minor changes made recently that too in the graphics and color department.
In this situation, a recent news has confirmed the launch of the BS4 CBR250R and CBR150R variants, but the date of launch was’nt disclosed and mention as, that its early to talk about the launch details. Furthermore, the BS4 engine variants will get new features over the BS3 edition.
“Moving forward, there is a plan to come back in this segment. However, it is too early to disclose details of the same.”, Said, the officials.
Another flagship motorcycle from the Honda is the CBR 150, which is the best rival for the Yamaha R15. However, both the CBR250R and the CBR150 were found missing from their official website shocked the whole lot fans of the CBR series.
This is mainly because of the recent BS3 norms posed on the Indian Motorcycles pulling the Honda back to produce the BS4 compliant engine.
We hope, that the Honda is busy in the production of CBR250R and CBR 150 with the BS4 standard. The upgraded version of entry level CBR series is expected to hit the market by July of 2017, with slight variation in price.
The Honda CBR250R BS4 engine will produce a maximum power of 26.15 BHP @ 8,500 rpm and 22.9 Nm @ 7,000 rpm of peak torque. Other specifications like 249 cc, mono cylinder, Double overhead camshaft (DOHC), 4 valve and Six-speed gearbox remains the same.
The shocking news about the Honda CBR250R and CBR 150 is, the banned BS3 variants are still available in some showrooms kept hidden and registered. Such BS3 variants are sold for cheaper cost.
We feel, this is the right time for Honda to hold the market back about the CBR250R. It is noteworthy, the CBR250R sales got a significant reduction in 2017, compared to the sales of the previous year.
