Honda CBRHonda CBR250R parts250R Photo Gallery (2011-2013)

Entry-level sportbikes have garnered much attention in the past few years, the quarter-liters offering the looks of a powerful superbike with the ease of riding for newbies.

Before 2011, one bike dominated America’s entry-sportbike market since 1986 – the Ninja 250. But in 2011, Honda brought its CBR250R stateside, and the bike was an immediate hit.

Honda CBR250R torqueAvailable with ABS, the CBR250R arrived with a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that featured a sophisticated four-valve DOHC cylinder head and counterbalancer, and PGM-FI fuel injection, something the Ninja 250 lacks (the Kawasaki 250 Ninja still had a carburetor, though the Ninja 300 that replaced it in 2013 arrived with fuel injection.)

Except for color options, the CBR 250 R didn’t receive any major revisions since its introduction in 2011. The major news for the 2013 CBR250R was the additional colors – Pearl White/Blue/Red, Red and Black, and the one that everyone MotoGP fan will surely enjoy – Repsol (only available in standard model without ABS).

Nothing has been reported about 2014, though a 2014 CBR300R is expected…stay tuned!

For now, here’s a photo gallery of the Honda CBR250R in all colors offered from 2011-2013. Each photo also makes for great wallpaper; to download as wallpaper, simply expand the desired thumbnail, right click and save as desktop background.
