Honda has just revealed their CBR250RR concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The concept shows the modernization of the starting range sports model.
While Honda has not divulged any further information regarding the specifications of the motorcycle, the digital cockpit reveals that the bike can achieve a redline of 14,000 rpm which is quite high compared to the current crop of CBR250 and 300 machines, but considerably lesser compared to the CBR250RR models of the past (four-cylinder machines that were made between 1986 – 1996).
The lightweight sports concept features an aggressively styled front end that consists of LED DRLs a large fuel tank and sharp tail section. The front fender, side panels and the unified rear tyre hugger, all get a special carbon fibre treatment. For the suspension system, the front end consists of upside down forks, while the rear carries a Ohlins monoshock. The exhaust comes as a carbon fibre end can made by Akrapovic.
While this is just a concept, it indicates the sporty and agressive design direction that Honda is moving towards for its small-displacement sport bikes. We have already seen some shades of this latest design concept in the updated, more aggressively-styled 2016 Honda CBR500R and Honda NC750X.
