The fuel-injected CBR250R offers everything you want in a first-time or all-around great bike: Light weight. A powerband that’s immensely user-friendly. Excellent fuel efficiency. Unmatched reliability. And a fun factor that’s off the chart.

Since the CBR250R is a Honda, it’s full of features few other bikes in its class can match. And it offers a build quality that means you’ve got dependable cross-town or cross-country transportation.

Best of all, the CBR250R is available in two versions: the CBR250R and the CBR250R ABS with our Anti-lock Brake System – a first for the segment and a really valuable option that both first-timers and experienced riders will appreciate. And for 2013, there’s even more color choices: Black, a new all-Red, and a new Pearl White/Blue/Red—all featuring blacked out wheels and exhaust. Plus, there’s an amazing new Repsol replica version!

Light weight, superb handling, broad powerband and unmatched build quality and attention to detail—combine all that with Honda’s famous reliability and the CBR250R is an instant winner.

Analog/Digital Instrumentation

Honda CBR250R

The CBR250R’s digital gauges with analog tachometer provides vital riding information in a styled, hi-tech instrumentation package.

Low Seat Height

Honda CBR250R

A low 30.5" seat height does more than help make sure the CBR250R fits a wide range of riders. It makes it easier to put your feet down at stoplights and in parking lots–a big confidence builder.

Passenger Ready

Honda CBR250R

A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail, and standard passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding–another example of the CBR250R’s versatility.

Underseat Storage

Honda CBR250R

Removing the rear passenger seat provides a lockable area to throw a map, gloves, or a spare set of sunglasses.

Layered Style Fairing

Honda CBR250R

Take a close look at the CBR250R’s unique bodywork, which is designed for style and functionality. It routes airflow for both engine cooling and rider comfort, while creating a unique sportbike style.

Fuel Injection

Honda CBR250R

Fuel injection means the new CBR250R starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel economy.

Single-Cylinder Engine

Honda CBR250R

A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CBR250R. It’s light, simple, returns excellent fuel economy, and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque–just what you want in a first motorcycle.

Counterbalance Shaft

Honda CBR250R

Because it features a counterbalancer, the CBR250R engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.

Pro-Link® Rear Suspension

Honda CBR250R

The CBR250R uses a single-shock pre-load adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride, but helps enhance handling as well, just as on some of our larger sport models.

Combined Anti-lock Brake System

Honda CBR250R

Our Combined ABS can be a big help in making controlled stops in less than ideal conditions. Like on wet pavement, or when there’s sand on the road or other debris. It’s a perfect choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun since it helps you stop with added confidence.

Disc Brakes

Honda CBR250R

The new CBR250R features front and rear hydraulic discs for excellent stopping power and brake feel. The single front disc helps keep things simple and lowers unsprung weight, too.
