Another great modification to 2011 Honda CBR-250R from the land of modders paradise, Thailand. This one is by Kittisak Racing which is inspired from the Bumble Bee in the Transformers movie. It can bee seen from the usage of the yellow colour on the overall coverset of the bike down to the colour of the wheels. Headlight which is being changed to angel eyes version like the one from BMW headlight adds to Transformers-like look. The exhaust pipe has been upgraded to the one from Yoshimura which should adds more power to the bike. The tyre, is it Pirelli Supercorsa?
The 2011 model of the Honda CBR150R which has been available in few countries such as Thailand, comes in full fairing version. The full fairing version is also great design which resembles the bigger brother CBR250R.
The Thais has modded this 2011 Honda CBR150R nicely for touring in naked version, which in my humble opinion, are great modification well done properly.
The modification parts that I can observe from the picture is the usage of pro-Arm suspension taken from Honda NSR150SP. The front fork suspension also has been changed to upside-down fork which usually are reserved for bigger displacement bikes. The big fuel tank of this CBR150R adds the muscular look when viewed from the side.
Finally, the long awaited 2011 Honda CBR-250R has made its appearance on official webpage at boonsiewhonda.com.my. This CBR-250R is a global model, means that in every country that is available, there are no changes to its engine, styling or anything.
It comes in three colours for the Standard version (non-ABS) that is Candy Ruby Red Metallic, Asteroid Black Metallic and Sword Silver Metallic whereby the ABS version comes in two colours only that is Candy Ruby Red Metallic and Sword Silver Metallic. The Standard have lighter weight since the ABS system weight about 9 pounds (4.08kg). The ABS version weighs at 165kg and the Standard version is at 161kg. Lighter weight can reflect to better acceleration and better braking. So, both models are both desirable and makes sense.
Every bikers are now eager to see the 2011 Honda CBR250R launched in Malaysia anytime soon. I know this since the statistic of the visitors show a spike of Honda CBR250R searches.
Almond Karim has uploaded many pictures of the Royal Malaysian Police 2011 Honda CBR250R which are going to be available soon to police station maybe somewhere near you. The colour white is nice with few signature to show it is a CBR250R and matches the overall of the luggage box on the both side.
This CBR250R features combined ABS for both of the brakes; front and rear, which is supplied by Nissin. There is some kind of sensor attached to the caliper with special groove disc at the inner ring of the disc plate. This looks much different than the many brake setup that I have seen before.
Going to be launched anytime now and while we waiting for the CBR250R, what about the siblings; CBR150R?
