Honda CBR250RR naked version could join its faired sibling soon; could share the same powertrain, chassis and other mechanical bits
The Honda CBR250RR is making headlines with its amazing power output of 38.7 PS. The faired sportsbike is the most powerful quarter-litre model in its segment at present. For those, who seek more aggressiveness from this model; Honda may introduce a naked streetfighter version of this bike.
The Motoblast has published a rendered image, which imagines the CBR250RR minus its fairings and it looks absolutely appealing. Honda is yet to confirm about the naked street fighter officially. If this bike enters production, it will use several elements from its sibling; including the frame and engine. Upon its launch, the bike will lock horn with the Yamaha MT-03 and Kawasaki Z300.
Like its faired sibling, the naked avatar of Honda CBR250RR could sport sleek dual LED headlamps, LED turn indicators and a fully digital instrument cluster. Apart from that, it would also feature muscular fuel tank with a sculpted look, split seats, narrow and sharp tail section with LED taillight. The bike will come with the masculine dual-barrel exhaust, just like its sibling.
The new lightweight steel frame of the Honda CBR250RR is claimed to be capable of offering extreme rigidity and superior balance. Shedding the fairing could help this bike to return extra mileage, compared to its faired sibling. The CBR250RR gets a 310 mm front disc and a 240 mm rear disc, combined with a dual-channel ABS. For suspension duty, the bike comes equipped with inverted telescopic front fork and aluminum swing arm with 5-step adjustable mono pro-link system at rear. Expect the naked version to share the same brake and suspension system.
Power source for the naked version of Honda CBR250RR is going to be the same 249.7 cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, four-stroke engine. Mated to a 6-speed transmission, the engine churns out 38.7 PS of peak power at 12,500 rpm and 23.3 Nm of peak torque at 11,000 rpm. Power and torque output are likely to remain similar.
