CB250R Overview

The resurgence of the café racer with the millennial generation has inspired many motorcycle manufacturers to bring out their own take on the concept. The Honda CB range is certainly one of the most charming of these little-naked motorcycles. Honda has decided to bring the 250 cc version of the bike here. They could have similarly launched the 125, 150, 300 or 1000 cc version too. Here in Malaysia, it stands out in the quarter-litre segment due to its classic yet futuristic appearance. Does this give it a big enough advantage over the likes of the Kawasaki Z250, KTM Duke 250, and BMW G310R apart from all the other sportier quarter litre motorcycles? Or does its price of RM 23000 prove too high for its classic styling?

Honda CB250R Design

Neo Café Racer. This is what Honda has decided to call the new design language of their CB range. And it isn’t hard to see why. From every angle, the CB250R looks like a café racer made for the modern age. The round headlight and the indicators mounted on top of it uses LEDs. The boxy dial on top of it houses an LCD screen with a digital display. The muscular haunches of the tank make their presence known even from the front view. But only when we move to the side profile are we exposed to the rugged and futuristic beauty of this bike. From the shape of the tank to the minimalist tail section with recessed grab handles - the bike captures the essence of café racer very well. The stance of the bike - with a length of 2012 mm, width 802 mm, height 1052 mm, wheelbase of 1352 mm, ground clearance of 151 mm and 17-inch Y spoke alloy wheels with 110 / 70 front and 150 / 60 rear tires - ticks all the right boxes. Even added conveniences like the radiator shroud and the engine cowl look just right. The beefy exhaust, blacked out engine components, and the exposed framework give it some added muscle.

The body panels carry a sculpted and layered yet minimalist look that goes very well with the overall design. This is complemented by the bike’s color schemes and a general lack of decorative embellishments. Some might argue that the CB150 Exmotion does a better job, but the CB250R is undeniably an attractive bike. The only complaint would be the overly extended rear mudguard that also carries the LED indicators. Also, that instrument panel displays a lot of information (including a gear indicator) and feels a bit cramped.

CB250R Ride & Handling

The 41 mm upside-down front forks and a Showa pro link monoshock at the rear make for a decent setup. The ride is set on the softer settings and works very well in absorbing road imperfections. For riding around town this setup will not pose any problems. The bike is very stable at higher speeds. The seating position is upright and relaxed with well-placed foot pegs and slightly raised handlebars. The only gripe is the slightly raised seat height of 799 mm. Some shorter riders are surely going to be left disappointed.

Honda CB250R Engine & Fuel Consumption

Producing 28 PS at 9000 rpm and 23.3 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm, is a liquid cooled and fuel injected DOHC single-cylinder engine. While it is a bit low on power than the equivalent KTM Duke, the power delivery is refined and controllable. The six-speed transmission is equally smooth. As an urban naked it has learner friendly dynamics. Weighing just 145 kg, it is nimble and zippy. This is no streetfighter but more akin to an urban cruiser. And this much power is decent for its intended purpose. The fuel tank has a capacity of 10-litre that should last for a good while without a fill-up.

CB250R Braking & Safety

Braking gets great setup with a 296 mm floating disc with a radially mounted Nissin 4 piston caliper and a 220 mm disc ina the rear with a single piscalliperiper. The CB250R also comes with a 2 channel ABS as standard. The brakes themselves are not the best but sufficient for normal use.

Honda CB250R Verdict

The Honda CB250R then is the best combination of modern features with retro design that anyone could ask for. Its asking price and learner friendly nature makes it very attractive to beginner riders. So, what if it isn’t going to tear up the roads? It simply doesn’t need to.

    Nazmi Oct 19, 2021 for Honda CB250R

    The Honda CB250R is the best of everything in motorcycling. It has great styling, is an able cruiser, and a good negotiator of city roads. It’s a multipurpose bike for daily commuting and occasional highway trips. ABS comes as standard and the suspension is soft, absorbing all bumps and potholes. The riding position is ergonomic. The round headlight forges a Read More

    Best part of the bike is it won’t fail to offer you a similar sort of thrill and excitement while riding without categorizing if you are falling into the experienced or a beginner segment. Say I am a seasoned rider and my brother is a newbie in this field, but we both have fallen for the machine. There is a Read More

    Honda bikes are well known for their superb styling and powerpack performance, and Honda CB250R is an apt example of the above saying. This modern cafe racer can easily beat any bike currently available in the Malaysian market, in my opinion. Its liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single-cylinder DOHC engine is way more powerful than it seems. It is also well packed with Read More

    A bike that allowed me to get my first ever experience on racer bikes and I am very proud of my choice. This bike is itself a beast and given its sporty look delivers amazing performance on road. Honda CB250R has a special aura of its own and that I could feel when I first rode it. There is no Read More

    Ruwayfi Nov 21, 2020 for Honda CB250R

    The 2019 Honda CB250R is meant for both beginners and experienced riders. The 250cc single-cylinder motor starts rather quickly and is typically quiet like all Honda bikes. So is the exhaust. The tapered handlebar is runner-mounted and it insulates your hand from engine vibration. The CB250R revs quickly. A blip on the throttle and the tachometer leaps up. The CB250R Read More

    This bike has a special distinct aura of its own. That I could sense when I tried a ride on this. Firstly, like any other Honda bike this never delays to start. The quiet engine also makes your journey peaceful and fun filled. The rubber handlebars of this two wheeler ensure that you do not feel any vibration in hand. Read More

    Does it sound too unrealistic if I say I got to know a bike that can be handled well by newbies and any experienced rider in equal manner? I know many of you will not believe in such a concept as this is rare. But that is exactly what you get when you decide to select a bike like Honda Read More

    Being on the wrong side of 25 and dangerously close to 30, I wanted to invest on a real good bike with greater piece of reliability. I ll admit that Honda CB250R has these features with amazing looks. The astounding style reminds me of the old Hornet generation but the build quality, you would not have ever thought of….
