Honda has just announced the pricing for the refreshed 2018 Honda CBR 250R launched with increased pricing for India. While we are still sad that we do not get the updated CBR 300R or even a cosmetically updated 250R the refreshed CBR 250R should have already reached showrooms. This CBR 250R comes with a new LED headlight, new colour options and 2 channel ABS instead of the combi-ABS system. For the uninitiated the combi-ABS was a system that along with the ABS duty also applied a bit of the front brake when the rear was applied. The new dual channel ABS is the regular ABS system where the anti lock system is activated on wheel lock detection.
Apart from this the bike remains the same as before. The 249.6 cc engine still produces 26.5 PS @ 8500 RPM and 22.9 Nm @ 7000 RPM. It will be available in four new colour options namely Gray metallic with orange highlights, Gray metallic with fluorescent green highlights, Pearl sports yellow and Sports Red.
The Honda CBR 250R standard non-ABS version has be priced at Rs 1,65,703/- ex-showroom Bangalore. The ABS version has been priced at Rs 1,95,226/- ex-showroom Bangalore.
