The Honda CBR 250R is returning to India with minor changes, something that should be music to the ears of a lot of people.

For the styling, this CBR 250 comes with some new color options, such as the combination of Blue-White-Red. The plastic quality has been increased and the engine is now more powerful and efficient due to the re-mapping of the ECU.

Speaking of the engine, the CBR 250R employs a 250 cc one-cylinder engine that produces 25 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 22.9 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. Compared to the KTM Duke , the CBR 250R is heavier, weighing 167 kg compared to only 136 for the Duke. Nevertheless, the difference shouldn’t be all that significant considering the CBR 250R carries some additional features that its rival does not.

Among these features include a Combi Brake System (CBS) and a re-setting of the ECU that riders can have as an added option.

One-liter sportsbikes usually carry an aura to them; one built on the assumption that they shatter whatever class stereotype they may come across. In the case of the Honda CBR1000RR , that assumption might very well be stated as a fact.

As a potent, high-powered sportsbike, the CBR1000RR blends magnum-level performance along with a near-perfect blend of streetability, versatility, rider feel, and balanced character.

The bike’s layered fairing design is the highlight of its aggressive bodywork that produces aerodynamic flow and high-speed handling, creating a large pocket of calm air around the rider and improving comfort while also helping draw air through the cooling system. The bike also has an integrated chin spoiler in the nose that reduces aerodynamic lift to improve handling. In addition to that, there’s also a multi-function LCD instrument that communicates important information with the option of four readout modes for tachometer display, lap timer, five-level shift indicator, and gear position indicator.

The true calling card of the CBR1000RR, though, is the engine.
The bike is the essential superbike—the perfect balance of power and handling designed to work together as one complete package. Packing a 999.8cc engine that pumps out huge mid-range horsepower and torque for class-leading real-world muscle, the bike offers a high-performance package that’s unmatched in the market.

For 2012, the CBR1000RR also boasts even better handling courtesy of a patented Balance-Free Rear Shock, Big Piston Fork, and new wheels. The suspension set-up features a Unit Pro-Link rear suspension that comes with a new, patented Balance-Free Rear Shock from Showa. This set-up incorporates a unique double-tube design featuring a damper case, plus an internal cylinder for more responsive damping and smoother damping action.

In every sense of the word, the Honda CBR1000RR is the quintessential dream superbike at a price of just $13,800.

The Honda CBR600RR has a history of racing engineering that’s unmatched in the industry. After all, if you’re a bike that has been honed to perfection on racetracks all over the world, and can match all that research and development with impeccable racing credentials, then you’ve definitely earned your stripes as one of the best sports bikes on the market.

The sports bike packs an impressive 599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine that’s more impressive if you dive deep into the science behind its capabilities. The CBR600RR comes with the Dual Stage Fuel Injection System (PGM-DSFI), an advanced fuel system that utilizes a set of four 12-hole fuel injectors mounted in new, larger 40mm throttle bodies to go with another full set of 12-hole injectors mounted high in the roof of the airbox. At its maximum red-line limit of 15,000 rpm, the intake and exhaust valves on the bike open and close 125 times a second - the valves will open and close 31 times before the rider can even blink - providing the engine with the kind of throaty power few bikes in its segment can match. Even at speeds below 5,500 rpm, the CBR600RR’s throttle response is as sharp and precise as an atomic clock, and when you combine that with the airbox-mounted showerheads, the sky is definitely the limit as to how much power this sports bike can muster.

Talking about its performance capabilities, the Honda CBR1000RR is powered by a powerful 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine with a close-ratio six-speed transmission. This setup is joined by an inverted HMAS cartridge fork with spring preload, rebound, and compression damping adjustability and a Unit Pro-Link HMAS single shock rear suspension with the same spring preload, rebound, and compression damping adjustability of the front suspension. The bike also features 320mm front brake discs with dual radial-mounted four-piston calipers to go with a single 220mm brake disc.
