Honda has discontinued the sword silver metallic colour on the CBR250R. The Japanese automaker recently launched the Honda CBR250R in pearl heron blue tri-colour shade, which looks stunning. The reason for discontinuing the silver colour can be attributed to the lack of popularity of this shade. When Honda initially launched the CBR250R, it was available in red and black colours only and the silver colour was introduced later. The 2012 Honda CBR250R’s are now offered in three colours, with the red and black colours getting 3D emblems. While these changes will certainly not swing buyers towards Honda dealerships, its nice to see Honda altering variants based on customer demand.

The Honda CBR250R is powered by a 250 cc, 4-stroke, 4-valve, liquid cooled engine which produces power of 25 BHP and torque of 23 Nm. Mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the CBR250R reaches a top speed in the region of 150 km/h. The twin spar chassis gives it a good balance of handling and high speed stability, while the optional C-ABS brakes give it one of the best stopping power in its segment. The CBR250R is competing with the KTM Duke 200 with competition only set to get more intense with the arrival of the Hyosung GT250R.
