2022 Honda CB250R goes official in Malaysia: Check features
Honda has launched the 2022 iteration of the CB250R in Malaysia with a sticker price of RM 23,999 (approximately Rs. 4.23 lakh). The motorcycle is roughly RM 1,000 dearer than the previous generation model. The Japanese marque had recently introduced the two-wheeler in its home market as well. The bike gets 41mm Showa SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork - Big Piston) inverted forks as standard.
Why does this story matter?
- The CB250R is Honda's answer to the super-competitive quarter-liter streetfighter segment across the globe.
- The bike takes on rivals from KTM, Kawasaki, and Yamaha with the help of premium components, usually found on big capacity offerings.
- The bike is highly unlikely to make it to India, as we already have its bigger sibling, the CB300R available on our shores.
The bike sports all-LED lighting setup and split-type seats
The 2022 Honda CB250R retains most of its design elements from the previous generation model and has a muscular 10.5-liter fuel tank, round LED headlamp, split-style seats, an upswept exhaust, a wide handlebar, and a slim tail section with a sleek LED taillamp. The bike packs an LCD instrument cluster and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in road-biased, wide-section tires.
It is backed by a 26.8hp, 250cc engine
The 2022 CB250R is powered by a 250cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that is paired with a 6-speed gearbox along with a slipper clutch. The mill churns out a maximum power of 26.8hp and a peak torque of 23.2Nm.
It is equipped with disc brakes and dual-channel ABS
For the rider's safety, the 2022 Honda CB250R comes equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better braking performance on every terrain. The suspension duties are taken care of by 41mm Showa SFF-BP inverted forks on the front and a 5-step preload-adjustable mono-shock unit on the rear end of the motorcycle.
