The ever so reliable and a thinking man’s sports bike maker Honda has come out with overhauled 2017 versions of its no-nonsense 250cc CBR250R and its naked twin the CB250F. The new bikes feature slight cosmetic changes such as changed colour scheme and new plastic bits around the engine, on the cylinder head-cover and the crank case.

The faired 2017 Honda CBR250R will get three colour schemes to pick from which include Millennium Red, Black and Ross White. The colour scheme follows the one introduced on the 2017 Honda CBR650F at EICMA last year.

As always, the bike remains mechanically similar to last year’s production. Both the 2017 Honda CBR250R and CB250F share the venerable 249cc, single-cylinder, dual overhead cam mill coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The bikes can carry 13-litres of petrol each and while the faired version has a ground clearance of 145mm, the naked rides 150mm above the ground. The engine churns out 29 PS of maximum power and 23 Nm of peak torque.
