Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced the August 1 (Fri), release of the 250cc new Road Sport Model "CB250F".

The CB250F was developed with the goal to allow an easy experience of the joy and fun of motorcycling. With its strongly dynamic “naked” style, and the single-cylinder engine that has amazing output force and response, it is very much so the manifestation of the new development concept “New Light Single Naked”.

Its styling is made to display the “Street fighter style”, in which it is refined to appear as a muscular athlete. Not only do the V-shaped headlight and the sharp front cowl make the front look dauntless, the use of the shroud and the under cowl gives a light and speedy impression.

The CB250F is powered by the 4-stroke DOHC 4-valve sing-cylinder 250cc engine, which was also used in the “CBR250R” model and received many praises for its good response and excellence in fuel efficiency and output force. No matter in medium or low speed ranges it is easily controllable, and even at high speed ranges it provides a relaxed feeling. Moreover, it holds a good fuel efficiency of 50.1km/L in the 60km/h steady-state test.

As it is formed with the truss-structured diamond type frame, it carries flexibility that makes riding feel easier and safer. The front is equipped with telescopic type suspension, and the rear with a Pro-link that includes a 5-step pre-load adjuster. Its dedicated CB250F handles, followed by the upright riding position is designed to make riding easy even in urban areas.

A digital meter is used for the liquid-crystal display of the tachometer, fuel gauge, time, and other information for advanced visibility.

The choice of colors (applies for the ABS type too) includes the dauntless black, and the aggressive millennium red.

* 1 The value of the fuel consumption rate is based on the given conditions of the test environment. The rate may vary depending on the environment (climate, congestion), the operating method, the state of the vehicle (equipment, specifications), and its maintenance state.

* 2 The WMTC mode value is an international standard that is calculated based on the vehicle’s exhaust gas test results in different running modes the includes startup, accelerations, decelerations. The class of the running mode is classified by the displacement and the maximum speed.
