2011 Honda CBR250R

Honda CBR250R
Honda makes  an  entry-level sportbike market with its 2011 CBR250R. The 250 CBR  will directly challenge Kawasaki’s genre-defining Ninja 250R.
A liquid-cooled 249.4cc Single powers the CBR250R (Ninja 250 is a Parallel Twin), with a 76mm bore and 55mm stroke. A four-valve head tops the Single, actuated by dual overhead cams. Smoothing out the Single’s inherent vibes is a counterbalanced shaft. Where the Ninja 250R is carbureted , the CBR will utilize Honda’s programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI). A six-speed gear box will divvy out the power, with a final chain drive.

Honda CBR250R will go head to head with the Kawasaki Ninja 250R. The all-new single cylinder CBR250R makes 26bhp from the new liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-valve single cylinder engine, and weighs 162kg fully-fuelled and ready to ride, compared to the Ninja 250R’s 32.2bhp and 169kg.

Honda is claiming impressive fuel range for the CBR250R – the firm states that the 13-litre fuel tank gives over 346 KM – that’s 27 kmph.
The Honda CBR250R has a steel frame with unadjustable conventional forks and a Pro-Link rear shock. A single brake disc with a three-piston Nissin caliper provides braking power. In the tight stuff, the CBR 250′s smaller stature and light weight are a plus, allowing it to move comfortably through the turns.  arger, faster bikes are a blast to ride and have a studly factor that is hard not to enjoy. The Honda CBR250R cannot compete on that level. Novices looking for a confidence-building first date can’t go wrong with the forgiving, but spirited, 250 and it is a great stepping stone to faster sport bikes.
