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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
