Honda India gets about 1800 CBR250Rs booked before it is launched

1800 Honda CBR250R bikes booked in one month. Now this should give a picture of India's maturing bike market to willingly accept bigger and sporty bikes.

The response to the Honda CBR250R with 1800 plus bookings in just a month even before the bike is launched is a telltale sign of enthusiasm that the Indian biker is harboring for high displacement bikes. Thanks to the aggressively priced baby Ninja a biker can now own a 250cc Honda CBR250R for a lakh lesser than the price of Kawasaki Ninja; call it perfect tapping of the market to frame the CBR250R with a tag of Value for Money

Honda has always been a respected brand in India and even now it has models which calls for waiting period of more than 3 months yet people give the waiting to own them; this despite the Honda's production being in full swing.

With such demand the auto major has opened the pre-launch bookings to just get surprised by the overwhelming response, especially considering the bike to be premium and high-end model.

Honda CBR250R

The CBR250 produces just that big impressive power of 25 BHP, and the bike sports all that you say latest biking technology. Looks wise, the CBR250R has taken after its bigger brother VFR1200 and the bike has every alluring attraction you must have seen in biggies. With little competition though, the pricing of 1.5 lakh makes the CBR250R a winner in the 250cc segment. All said, if the waiting gets longer and tests patience of bike lovers, and if in the interim Bajaj or TVS roll out Pulsar 250cc or Apache 250cc with maybe even same price and with little or no waiting period, there is likelihood that Honda CBR250R might lose at least half of its bookings as people will withdraw and it could be a big blow to the pre-launch hype.

Guys at Honda...are you reading this?
