Honda CBR 250R – Review Road Test

Every bike maker in India has one product in the 150 cc segment. This is the why there is a fierce battle here in this segment, like the Premium hatchbacks in the wheeler passenger car segment.

the present scenario into 250 cc bikes are the very next for those who are fed up with the (traditional) 150 cc India, at present can only with two 250 cc bikes and the best is that both these are Japanese by nationality. One being the Ninja 250R and the other the Honda CBR 250R, both International models and successful as

I, for BikeAdvice reviewed the latest among these two which is the CBR 250R. Here, in this I have consolidated my insights with incorporating the bike’s

It’s Not Infatuation, Its Love @ Sight!

It’s very for a bike to impress the rider, at the very first sight and not bike does it well. The CBR 250R has got that hot looks to you to get your hands on her. I not say that the bike is completely and is capable enough to boast its size.

The visual looks are cool and Honda has proved the very well that not the body graphics which the looks of the bike. There are two from Honda that can be within the CBR 250R. The front of the bike is the exact replica of the VFR and the rest of the body gives you a that you are in a bike which is from CBR FireBlade.

It’s in ideal to mention this as ‘Baby FireBlade.’(How is BFB? a TLA – Three Letter Acronym!)

The of the bike is not perfectly racing but offers the best of looks. The two colour scheme is made in all the three colours available in  The colours of this also reminds the VFR 1200F.

The VFR is available in 2 colours schemes and these schemes of Candy Red and Seal Silver Metallic are as incorporated in the CBR 250R, though is an additional colour of Black as The CBR 250R is one of the few bikes in India looks stunning when from any angle, irrespective of it front, rear or the side.

Of The CBR 250R

The Honda CBR 250R is impressive in almost every factor that we’ll about in the following paragraphs. The shape is very gorgeous and the steel coating on it adds to the beast.


The 4 … cooled engine with a of 249.6 cc does a brilliant under the frame. It aids the in providing a smooth ride any vibes observed, thereby way for a brilliant riding experience. It a power of 25 bhp, which the bike really fun to ride and the fact that the CBR is to be pushed full throttle at higher I loved revving up the bike in and more in the second gear.

is exactly where the power is As in the case of every high bikes, the CBR 250R is also with Fuel Injector and to be more specific, it houses the system which is Honda’s FI in most of its bikes across the This aids in the bike’s fuel efficiency despite its displacement.  Riding it for just a distance is enough to make you the power and potential of this

The engine alone (as most of would have known by has as much as 9 patents registered. engines are always highly across the globe and the CBR 250R is no to it. I was able to feel the heights of refinement as I tested her.

Size is Inversely Proportional to the

This is the most interested any review writer would be in. I rode this bike the open highway at both low and speed, apart from the Bangalore city traffic The bike is capable of handling irrespective of where you ride gorgeous woman.

Along the its well designed aerodynamics the air resistance considerably if leaned and this can be clearly felt enjoyed too!). It’s is inversely proportional to the handing. anyone believe when I say But, it is true.

The machine is big but handling is comfortable to the core.  The base is another important for the bike’s stability at high It never makes you feel The cornering capability of this is also stunning. Agsin, the makes the tyre gets on to the tarmac, thereby offering a cornering experience.

This me feel that I’d rather this bike in Chennai or so that I could have this ‘Baby FireBlade’ in the track, which is yet another place for this beast.


The bike I tested for BikeAdvice is the top end with ABS. It was indeed fun to ride a bike with If you wanna experience what braking ever means, is the machine to be tried. Get your set on the brake pegs, hands on the and throttle her up and up and up. Then you gotta her hard.

You’ll notice the bike comes to an instant without pulling the front up. Oh, that was great man. I pulling the front disc I was at 120 kmph and what I saw was amazing.

Within a fraction of a second, I saw the speedo showing 72, 48, 22 and the bike

With a Combined – AntiLock System like this, the within you will increase when you rev up this bike the open highway. Coming to the wet part of it, there was a small or road along the Bangalore – NICE road which was wet (It is different story that I hunting for a wet road for miles just to brake the tyre).  knows the fact that the would not skid and that’s the ABS is for.

But, I’ll to also tell you that the was as precise and smooth as it can be on a regular This C-ABS adds feather to the Honda CBR 250R’s apart from the rest of the that this bike about. To end with, lemme you that ABS cannot be disabled in bike unlike the Apache RTR ABS.

Instrument Cluster

The cluster is neatly laid out and the matches flawlessly in the gap between the fairing and the clip handlebar. The cluster is a combo of analog and meters. The major area is by the Tachometer which is the only meter out here.  The rest is all The silver coloured finishing more beauty to this

The best part about cluster is the Blue backlight is offered by Honda.

This the meters look very even when the bike is used in the night time. It has a meter, speedometer, trip and a clock. But, there is one feature which disappointed me. every other bike the CBR 250R houses only one rather than two in most bikes.

  But, there are lotta who don’t make use of the second so this should not be an issue for But, for someone like me who use of both the trips during drives. But still, it’s of blowing this issue

The clock is very utilitarian and for that. The headlamp is another on this bike you can really on. The 12V 60/55W H4 lamp offers to you during night rides and is one area where many lag.


I know there is no word like (Speedability) but still it conveys it intends, right? Well, bike is capable of touching 100 within short strips, is enough boast about its I pushed this bike to 148 and the bike didn’t just to pant and puff.

There was a little throttle left but the flow grew over a of time which restricted me pushing her still. There are who have crossed 150 mark this bike, which proves that speed is not at all issue to be worried and hence is an apt bike for ‘SpeedManiacs’ who consider as an important criterion. The rear tyre with a dimension of 17 plays its role very here.

City Slicker or or Cruiser?

This is the most question to answer. Hmmm, but lemme try. The bike is of commuting easily despite its size.

But, why do you need a 250 cc for merely commuting within the limits? But, surely for the two options mentioned, the CBR 250R can both of them very

Yes, its amazing cornering combined with the high delivering engine, it can bring out the inside every biker.  bike is also an amazing The reason for this is its seating which leaves you with no ache at the end of the day.

It is also to be specially mentioned neither the engine nor the body vibrate at any point of time and at any as well. This aids in dependability of the bike which is mandatory for a bike used for rides.

Negative Deeds

all the above mentioned appreciations for the there are also a few drawbacks are to be rectified by the company (atleast) a period of time.

The sound of the is something which is not at all suited for bike. How did the company even to install this horn,

I observed heavy vibration the fuel tank is too high the key in inserted into the slot and is on. The meters in the console are the point of of these vibes which have to be rectified by Honda. managed to design an engine doesn’t vibrate at high then why can’t you do this thing?

The rear part of the lags foot peg for ladies. being the case, what is the in having saree guard? Of, the company has got nothing to do with issue.

 I observed the fit and finish of the in two different coloured bikes. In black one which is tested, the of the plastic doesn’t appear to be too as it matches perfectly with the scheme. However, when it to the red one there are signs that the quality all along the body have improved and so is the finish of the

Honda could have LED lights for the rear lamps. pretty outdated when it to this factor.

The Rear Mirror looks too dated any exclusive shape. Could worked on it.

The rear seat is too slippery. the R15 V2.0, the CBR 250R too should come up with slip seats.
