When did a 250 last look this good?

HERE'S a more detailed look at Honda's CBR250RR, courtesy of the Indian site, which photographed it at a show in Indonesia. 

The 250cc parallel-twin was officially revealed last month in Indonesia, with Honda confirming it's got a ride-by-wire throttle and three riding modes.  

It’s also got an all-new steel frame with a gull-arm-type aluminium swing-arm, a five-step pre-load adjustable shock and upside-down fork.

We think it looks pretty sharp, too. 

Honda said at the launch that it would go on sale in Japan but there were no plans to bring it to the UK. 

However, we always knew this exact model wouldn’t be sold here, where its main competition would be the bigger Yamaha R3 and KTM RC390. Instead rumour suggests we’ll see a bigger version, possibly up to 350cc in size and renamed the CBR350RR accordingly.

Suzuki is also thought to have a new sub-500cc GSX-R on the way, as revealed in recent patent images.
