HRC’s Honda CBR250R Cup Bike

In Japan, Honda has a nice spec-series brewing that features the new Honda CBR250R sport bike. Naturally for the cup race there needs to be a racing version of the CBR250R, and HRC has happily obliged. Nothing too fancy, after all this is supposed to be an entry-level series, but the HRC CBR250R racer features race bodywork sans lights and signals, as well as a fully-adjustable ECU that has come pre-loaded with various HRC fuel and ignition maps.

Other goodies include a toggle for different fuel/ignition maps, a quick-shifter, and a pit lane rev-limiter. The bike is seemingly available from HRC in Japan only, though we wouldn’t be surprised if it spread to other markets in the future, as the street-legal mini-CBR did with its launch.

At $3,999 for the stock model, the HRC CBR250R is likely to be a cheap racing solution for racers on a budget, and an intriguing offering for racers already smitten with the Kawasaki Ninja 250R.
