Thanks to the new paint scheme for that the 2013 CBR 250R ramp is blessed with the shade of Repsol Honda official factory team's racing superbike. Additionally the line up is ornamented by new blue/orange/white/red color, and full red color, instead of red/silver shade.

The motorcycle can produce a maximum power of 25 bhp @ 8500 rpm and a good amount of torque up to 22.9 Nm @ 7000 rpm. Its engine is mated with a 6-speed constant mesh gear transmission.
