    Stay away from Honda CBR-250Rs BS4 editions. Beware it’s just the name Honda Sells in India not a quality product or service now a days. I am already a victim of this, so just sharing my experience. Most of the ownership reviews you find online are for older editions which make you fall for CBR250R if you like refinement.So does most of the bike rental services like Wicked Ride or DriveZy have older 2016-17 editions and they are awesome to experience.That was my validation & research before I bought the CBR on May 11th 2019. (CBR 250R Sep 2018 Manufactured)Issues I faced from day 1 of bike delivery are: HMSI Ticket No 1-71490982781.1.Heavy engine vibrations due to slipped engine mount bolts also they replaced Rocker arm, CAM, Shims & Sprocket set to address overall vibrations. 2.Handle wobbling between 70-80 kmph, they replaced Cone set assembly and didn’t resolve the issue. It seems they are defective tyres, they replaced rear tyre still issue not resolved.3.Metal clicking noise from frames and under tank. Issue was addressed by applying foam tape between frame (chassis) and Tank and Side body panels.4.ASC damaged radiator during water wash- which they had to replace after a fight proving their incompetence.Most of the new BS4 CBRs have these vibrations issues just check any CBR forum on FB or online.. In a nutshell you might be lucky to get a good unit. However, ASCs service competence is crap. You will suffer with their trial and error method of fixing issues.They trust in your patience to cover their incompetence. My 79 days old CBR250 R spent 30 days in ASCs- 8 attempts - still handle wobbling issue is not fixed. HMSI BLR regional head is also aligned for this since 3 weeks for last 3 attempts.

    The bike had a butter smooth engine , and made almost zero sound comparing to others. The vibrations were the least of all the single cylinder bikes that I had ridden. It was light weight and IIt weighs only 167 kilograms, and feels even lighter. The mileage rating is around 35 kmpl and itThe engine is the smoothest amongst all the single cylinder bikes and there is very less engine noise. This bike is known for its touring capabilities and it sure is, it can easily do highway speeds. waiting eagerly for Honda to launch cbr300 in any time 😅😅😇

    This is the best daily ride as well as touring bike in india now. The engine is super refined. The quality and comfort are the main usp of this bike. Where it lags is the low end torque. Initial pick up is much less than its competitors. If you love to race singnal to signal, this bike will not make you happy. This is for a lovely long ride.

    My one was the pearl heron blue man it's was eye-catching I bought in back in 2012 .....It was so comfortable...I had to sell it for some reason.....I still miss it...Bit now in 2019 much better bikes r available at this price it seems ....But still if some 1 gives me choose for free between other bikes I will choose cbr250r

  • 4.2

    Good bike and the very comfortable for all age group people. Especially for those who are using bikes daily. But if u think of mileage is also important little oscillation will be in this. Mostly I prefer CBR250R for those who is a very bike lover

Honda CBR250R Highlights

CBR250R Specifications

Powering the new CBR is a new BSIV-compliant engine that is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The 249.6cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine produces 26.3PS of power at 8500rpm and 22.9Nm of torque at 7000rpm. This makes it half a PS more powerful with no change in torque figures when compared to the earlier model. The diamond-type frame is the same, with telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock unit at the back. Braking is handled by a 296mm front and 220mm rear disc brake, with dual-channel ABS on the higher variant.

CBR250R Design and Features

On the design front, not much has changed on the 2018 CBR250R. However, the key differences that separate it from the earlier versions is the all-black treatment on the alloy wheels, exhaust pipes and rear fenders. The 2018 version also gets an all-LED headlight as a major highlight, followed by a new set of graphics and a blacked-out instrument console as well. New colours include - matte grey, orange, gray and green, and yellow and red.

Honda CBR250R Competitors

Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 ABS: The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 certainly scores a few brownie points when it comes to engine refinement and performance. It is also well loaded with nifty features such as projector headlamps with LED DRLs, a backlit semi-digital instrument console and ABS. All in all, those looking for an affordable, fully-faired bike with sporty characteristics, the RS200 is certainly an attractive buy.

KTM RC 200: In terms of sheer track riding experience, the KTM RC 200 is still the best in its class. The bike received a facelift recently and is now BSIV-compliant as well. The updates make it even more tempting than before, but it isn’t ideal for daily use thanks to the stiff suspension setup and the committed riding posture. This blend, however, does make it fun to ride around the twisties.

The Apache RR 310: The Apache RR 310 comes across as a welcome addition to the line-up of entry-level sports bikes in India. While it's far more accessible than the Benelli and the Kawasaki it does face some fierce competition from the KTM RC 390. So if you have a budget of around Rs 2.5 lakh and aren’t looking for something that is too track focused and want a good balance of everyday usability as well, then the Apache RR 310 should be the go-to bike.


The Honda CBR250R is now Rs 13,000 costlier than the earlier STD version and Rs 16,000 costlier than the earlier ABS variant. With just the addition of LED lights as the only major change, the hike in prices is not really justified. Add to that the lack of power and torque in comparison to its closest competitor the Apache RR 310, which is a lot more potent. Be it the track, highways or running around in the urban jungle. The CBR250R is otherwise a fair bet to opt for, offering enough pep to keep you thrilled. It’s also got commendable highway and city cruising dynamics, which should make it a good everyday motorcycle. Especially with the more relaxed ergonomics, unlike the KTM RC 200.
