Honda Unveils Entry-Level Sportbike for 2011

Beginner riders have more options

10/29/2010

American Honda is releasing an all new 2011 model designed for those entering the sport of motorcycling, the CBR250R. "This is really an amazing machine we're adding to Honda's list of models for 2011," said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. "The CBR250R is specifically aimed at new riders, yet it's packed full of high-tech features and offers great performance, all in a lightweight, affordable package. This new model expands another segment of the market for Honda buyers."

The CBR250R has a seat height of just 30.9 inches with a curb weight of 359 pounds making this entry level model manageable for most smaller riders.

“Up until now, riders entering motorcycling who wanted a sportbike instead of a cruiser were limited on options,” said Genevieve Schmitt, editor of WomenRidersNow.com. “Other than the Kawasaki Ninja 250R, there are no other 250cc sportbikes that cater to beginner riders. The Honda CBR250R gives beginners seeking a sportier ride another option.” WomenRidersNow.com offers content aimed at women riders as well as new riders and those interested in motorcycling.

The CBR250R is available in metallic black, shown here, and red/silver color schemes. ABS is also available as an option

The 2011 CBR250R is powered by a efficient 249cc liquid-cooled single cylinder engine, an all-new design featuring a sophisticated four-valve DOHC cylinder head, engine counterbalancer, and fuel injection. This lightweight machine delivers nimble handling, a broad spread of easily accessible power and low operating costs all in one. Whether the day calls for a commute to work, quick trips around town or all-day explorations in the countryside, the CBR250R offers riders a new way to get acquainted with the many faces of motorcycling. Pricing will be announced November 12, 2010 with the new motorcycle showing in dealerships in the spring of 2011.
