Journalists are starting to get their hands on the 2017 Honda CBR250RR. The bike is being introduced first to Indonesia, and we expect a 300cc + version to eventually reach the U.S. market (probably, next year). Honda officially claims this 250cc version has a top speed of 104 mph (168 kph), and makes 36 peak horsepower at 12,500 rpm.
In the video below published by an Indonesian magazine, the new CBR250RR actually exceeds this speed (at least, as indicated on the speedometer) on a race track. Honda states the new bike has “class leading power”, so a larger displacement U.S. model might prove quite potent for the category. Have a look.
