If the Honda’s “Light Weight Super Sports” concept (super high-resolution photo above), which will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show, is any indication though, the Japanese manufacturer is about to blow the competition out of the water with what will likely be the Honda CBR250RR.
All we know for certain right now is the following statement from Honda:
Designed with the key phrase “strong presence”, this next-generation super sport concept model features a look possessing a sense of speed derived from its long nose and low crouching position. The combination of surfaces – creating a sense of hardness and solidity – and sharp edges, emphasize the aggressive look. Moreover, the exterior featuring matte-black-based low-contrast graphics underlines its beauty and eye-catching form.
However, many take this as a sign that Honda will return to its history of making high-revving small-displacment sport bikes for hardcore riders and track day enthusiasts.
We can only speculate to the changes under the hood, though enhancing the photo in Photoshop suggests a parallel-twin engine. The edgy bodywork indicates that the concept has the performance to match it.
Hopefully Honda will reveal more information at the Tokyo Motor Show, and fingers crossed we see a screaming Honda CBR250RR in our near future.
