Honda announces worlds first Combined ABS for a 250cc-class road sports bike- CBR250R
Honda will produce the new CBR250R road sports model in Thailand and launch sales in November. This CBR250R will have the largest engine displacement of any vehicle produced by Thai Honda and will be its first full-fledged road sports model. The Honda CBR250R is equipped with a newly-developed liquid-cooled 250cc 4-stroke 4-valve single-cylinder DOHC engine that is easy to handle. High environmental performance that meets Euro 3 emission standards and Thailand’s sixth emission standards was realized by adopting an electronically controlled fuel injection system as well as an O2 sensor and taking advantage of the combined effect with a catalyzer fitted inside the exhaust pipe.
The full-cowl body presents a highly advanced design full of functional beauty. The light and compact frame, made of a highly-rigid diamond shape in a truss structure, offers agile handling and steady maneuverability as a sports model, while the cowl design enables optimal control of the wind toward the engine or the rider.
R&D for the CBR250R was advanced in both Japan andThailand starting with the development phase.In the area of safety technology, the CBR250R’s specifications incorporate Combined ABS, a world first for a 250cc-class road sports model into a designated type. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will also start production of the CBR250R next spring and extend sales from India to South America.
