2013 Honda CBR250R
Fun. Cool. Capable. CBR250R.
The CBR250R brings motorcyclists an innovative approach to riding, one that’s both appealing and fun. Beginners and experienced hands alike will recognize the economy and extreme versatility of this sporty little ride. Equipped with an extremely efficient 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine featuring a sophisticated four-valve DOHC cylinder head, counterbalancer, and PGM-FI fuel injection, plus the option of ABS and more, this dependable lightweight delivers nimble handling, a broad spread of easily accessible power, excellent fuel mileage and low operating costs, all in one. Put it to work for your daily commute, quick trips around town or weekend back-road explorations; the CBR250R does it all while delivering as much fun per mile as anything around, all at a price that just about anyone can afford.
If you’re looking for an affordable, smart, capable and fun way to enjoy life on two wheels—have we got a bike for you: the Honda CBR250R! The fuel-injected CBR250R offers everything you want in a first-time or all-around great bike: Light weight. A powerband that’s immensely user-friendly. Excellent fuel efficiency. Unmatched reliability. And a fun factor that’s off the chart.
Since the CBR250R is a Honda, it’s full of features few other bikes in its class can match. And it offers a build quality that means you’ve got dependable cross-town or cross-country transportation.
Best of all, the CBR250R is available in two versions: the CBR250R and the CBR250R ABS with our Anti-lock Brake System – a first for the segment and a really valuable option that both first-timers and experienced riders will appreciate. And for 2013, there’s even more color choices: Black, a new all-Red, and a new Pearl White/Blue/Red–all featuring blacked out wheels and exhaust. Plus, there’s an amazing new Repsol replica version!

2013 Honda CBR250R Key Features
Light, Narrow, Low.
Because it’s a single-cylinder machine, the CBR250R is narrow, and with its low 30.5-inch seat height and light 359-pound curb weight, putting your feet down in parking lots or at stoplights can be a lot easier.
The Power of One.
The CBR250R uses a single-cylinder engine with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Sure that’s tech talk, but the architecture offers some very real advantages. Maybe the most important is power delivery: a single offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.
Stop With Confidence.
Analog/Digital Instrumentation – The CBR250R’s digital gauges with analog tachometer provides vital riding information in a styled, hi-tech instrumentation package.
Layered Style Fairing – Take a close look at the CBR250R’s unique bodywork, which is designed for style and functionality. It routes airflow for both engine cooling and rider comfort, while creating a unique sportbike style.
Fuel Injection – Fuel injection means the new CBR250R starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel economy.
Single-Cylinder Engine – A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CBR250R. It’s light, simple, returns excellent fuel economy, and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque–just what you want in a first motorcycle.
Counterbalance Shaft – Because it features a counterbalancer, the CBR250R engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.
Pro-Link® Rear Suspension – The CBR250R uses a single-shock pre-load adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride, but helps enhance handling as well, just as on some of our larger sport models.
Low Seat Height – A low 30.5″ seat height does more than help make sure the CBR250R fits a wide range of riders. It makes it easier to put your feet down at stoplights and in parking lots–a big confidence builder.
Passenger Ready – A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail, and standard passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding–another example of the CBR250R’s versatility.
Underseat Storage – Removing the rear passenger seat provides a lockable area to throw a map, gloves, or a spare set of sunglasses.
Disc Brakes – The new CBR250R features front and rear hydraulic discs for excellent stopping power and brake feel. The single front disc helps keep things simple and lowers unsprung weight, too.
– Transferable one-year limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
