Great Starter Sport Bike with ABS brakes The CBR250RA is far removed from the sort of basic commuter bike often found in this class – it’s a true Honda sportbike loaded with sophisticated engineering and high-tech components. The good stuff starts with the CBR250RA’s jewel of an engine. Purpose-built just for this bike, the 249 cc liquid-cooled single with PGM-FI electronic fuel injection was conceived, engineered and built to provide an optimum torque curve for street riding, impressive top-end power, and the superior power-to-weight ratio that makes riding a high-performance 250 so exciting. The compact size of the engine was a key element in allowing engineers to create a sporty chassis and rider ergonomics that comfortably fit riders big and small. With its centralized mass, compact wheelbase, full-size 17-inch wheels, nimble steering geometry and light overall weight, the CBR250RA achieves that magical state of feeling like it’s responding to your very thoughts. Plus, it’s the only bike in its class to offer the benefits of ABS brakes. Standard Features Engine / Drivetrain The 249 cc single-cylinder engine has been purpose-built for the CBR250RA, and boasts such high-performance features as dual overhead camshafts driven by a Hy-Vo-type silent chain, forked roller rocker arms, a compact four-valve cylinder head, a counterbalance shaft, and liquid cooling. The light and compact engine contributes to the CBR250RA’s nimble steering, intuitive handling and impressive power-to-weight ratio, which allows it to outperform twin-cylinder bikes of similar displacement. Shim-style valve adjustment allows easy inspection and maintenance, although with a recommended inspection interval of 48,000 km, you’ll ride a long, long time between any needed adjustments. The engine countershaft sits lower than the mainshaft in a “stacked” formation to further reduce the engine’s front-to-back dimensions. Bore and stroke measurements are equivalent to those of the CBR1000RRA’s high-performance engine. The engine produces a remarkably broad torque curve for strong low-rpm performance, and peak horsepower kicks in at 8,500 rpm—well before the 10,500-rpm redline. This wide spread of power makes the CBR250RA easy and confidence-inspiring to ride, in both stop-and-go situations and on the highway, while also returning impressive fuel economy. The crankshaft runs in plain bearings for quieter operation and the big end of the connecting rod spins in a needle bearing, both contributing to the engine’s high-performance credentials. A gear-driven counterbalance shaft helps quell engine vibration for enhanced rider comfort. It’s located so close to the crankshaft that the balancer weight passes between the two crank weights to keep the engine as compact as possible while improving mass centralization. Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors several variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for the current riding and atmospheric conditions, thereby d
