The Japanese automotive industry has commenced its switch to the country’s latest Reiwa 2 emission norms and has launched the updated 2022 CB250R. 

Powering the updated CB250R is a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. The new version has 26.6bhp and 23Nm on tap, but its kerb weight is just 145kgs. For reference, the KTM 250 Duke, which produces 3bhp and 1Nm more, is 25kgs heavier than the new CB250R. 

A few other aspects of the motorcycle have also been tweaked. Along with an engine with lesser emissions, Honda has also equipped the motorcycle with Showa’s Big Piston Separate Function front fork. In addition to this, the new iteration will now also have a slip and assist clutch and a gear indicator. 

 The motorcycle has been launched in three colours, including Matte Gun Powder Black Metallic, Matte Pearl Agile Blue, and Candy Chromosphere Red, with different colours on the front fork casing, wheels, headlight ring, and radiator shrouds. 

The chances of the motorcycle making its way to our shores is slim. In India, Honda already has the CB300R, which comes with the same goodies, a larger engine, and more performance.
