2019 Honda CBR250RR gets premium features like dual-LED headlights and a ride-by-wire throttle system with three different ride modes
Honda Thailand has released a new commercial video for their popular fully faired sportsbike, the 2019 CBR 250RR. In this video, you can clearly watch the quarter-litre sportsbike handles the corners of a racetrack quite confidently. The video also highlights the new features that the 2019 CBR250RR gets. For those of you who are still not aware, the motorcycle is already available for sale in the markets of Thailand and Indonesia.
The sportsbike was introduced back in 2016 and to be quite honest, nothing much has changed in terms of its styling and features since then. The updated motorcycle was showcased at the 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show last year.
In this new video, you can watch the 2019 CBR250RR gets a sharp looking double layered dual full LED headlamp, ride-by-wire throttle system, stylish LED taillamp and a full LCD instrument cluster with a lap timer. The motorcycle has been designed to go fast and that is also the reason why it gets an aerodynamically layered velocity cowl inspired by aircraft.
The CBR250RR is powered by a 250cc, parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 8-valve, DOHC engine. The unit has been tuned to produce 38.7 PS of peak power at 12,500 rpm and a peak torque of 23.3 Nm at 11,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. What is interesting is also the fact that it gets a throttle-by-wire system which allows the rider to select from three different riding modes: Comfort, Sports, and Sports+.
The rider can toggle between these ride modes on-the-go by pressing a switch positioned on the left side of the handlebar. To bring the motorcycle to a halt, it relies on a 310 mm disc brake towards the front and a 240 mm rear disc brake. A dual channel ABS is offered as standard for the safety of the rider.
The suspension duties of the motorcycle are carried by an inverted telescopic front suspension and a 5-step adjustable monoshock setup with a pro-link system at the rear. The motorcycle also features an aluminium swingarm and dual exhaust pipes which promise to offer a throaty exhaust note.
