CBR250R / Overview
Truly versatile, naturally sporty
Progressing onto bigger and better bikes as a rider becomes more experienced is ingrained in motorcycling. For decades powerful, big-capacity machines have presented an obvious incentive to upgrade from smaller bikes as quickly as possible.
But in the 21st century, the sense in using powerful, big-capacity machines is becoming hard to see. Busy roads, increasing fuel prices and the way we feel towards the environment all help make small-capacity motorcycles more relevant than ever.
So there’s never been a better time to introduce the new 2011 CBR250. It unites the inherent virtues of a 250cc machine with the timeless CBR qualities of high performance, intuitive handling dynamics and unrivalled ease of use.
The result is a stylish looking machine that’s versatile and able to take on any task while delivering an exciting ride, every time you get on it.
A sportsbike to satisfy all types of riders. The CBR250R
Different riders look for different things in a motorcycle. For example, modern riders look for low running costs, outstanding fuel efficiency and easy handling. All without having to sacrifice the sophistication, riding thrill and styling of big-capacity machines that old-school riders look for. To have it all in one bike is a big demand. One that the CBR250R confidently responds to.
Designed around an all-new 249.4cm3 single-cylinder engine with an efficient 4-valve DOHC cylinder head and PGM-FI fuel injection, the CBR250R is a lighter, more compact and more fuel efficient motorcycle that still boasts a supremely usable torque curve.
As for the rest of the CBR250R package, it’s similarly balanced. Combining satisfying performance with the kind of refinement and easygoing usability that makes every single journey enjoyable.
Any rider would appreciate the CBR250R is a truly versatile 250cc sportsbike, with unrivalled fuel economy.
