2012 Honda NSF250R vs Honda NSR250R

Honda’s Moto3 bike, the NSF250R, pretty hot!

Honda Corporation (HRC) recently its all-new Moto3 machines – the – which will be raced 2012 onwards. As you would know, the new Moto3 class, machines powered by single-cylinder 250cc engines, will 125cc two-strokes next The class is expected to be wildly and, indeed, aspiring will be able to buy the Honda from December this for a mere 23,600 euros.

The Honda NSF250R Moto3 is fitted with a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder, DOHC, engine that produces 48 at 13,000rpm and 28Nm of torque at The bike weighs a featherweight 84 (kerb weight) and has a fuel capacity of 11 litres. Suspension include a USD fork at the front and monoshock at the rear.

An aluminium frame and aluminium swingarm the racy little package.

As expect for a machine that’s designed for Moto3. the Honda is fairly high-tech, with valves for both the intake and nickel silicon carbide cylinder surface treatment for friction, cassette-type close-ratio transmission and radial-mount callipers for the brake disc. And yet, to us, the new NSF look nearly as interesting as the Honda NSR250R, which, with the Suzuki RGV250 and RS250 of the same era, was one of the best super-sport two-… streetbikes ever built.

1990s racer-replica exotica at its best — the Honda SP

The original Honda NSR250 its debut back in October when it was unveiled as a 1987 It was nimble and quick and a ‘proper’ and Honda made it even in 1988 when they the first ‘SP’ (Sport version of the NSR. Gradually, the next few years, the NSR250R got like fully adjustable wider radial tyres, magnesium-alloy wheels, bigger discs, dry clutch, racier and ‘Gullarm’ swingarm etc.

In Honda also introduced an version in addition to the SP and standard R

The 1992 Honda NSR250R SP was at 770,000 Yen and production was limited to 1,500 units. The bike had a ‘memory card’ instead of a ignition key and bits like instrumentation and GPs-style ‘Proarm’ added to the cool factor.

about 45 horsepower from its 250cc engine, and razor-sharp and suspension, the Honda NSR250R was a scalpel for the street – on tight, roads, it would easily bigger, more powerful gasping for breath. The bike popular until the mid-1990s, but had to stop production in 1999 of ever-tightening emissions norms.

Today, bikes like the NSR250R SP, Suzuki RGV250 SP, RS250, Yamaha TZR250R SP and KR-1S simply do not exist. In of outright performance, the existing Ninja 250R and new Honda simply aren’t in the same as their late-1980s/early-1990s predecessors. But the new NSF250R could provide a of hope.

Maybe – just – an enterprising specials builder buy a batch of these new Honda and use those to build a series of machines? A street-legal Honda with lights and turn-indicators, -)
