Honda CBR 250R to reach the showrooms by the first week of April
Any major launch in this year cannot come close to the eagerness with which bike enthusiasts are waiting for the Honda CBR 250R and much to their relief, the bike isn’t that far now. Recently launched in Thailand, Honda’s latest single-cylinder, 250-cc offering will reach the showrooms across the country by the first week of April. Due to the unfortunate catastrophe and loss of life in Japan, the company has planned not to hold any formal launch event. The bike will be available in standard and combi-ABS variants and has been priced at Rs 1.51 lakh and Rs 1.77 lakh respectively (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
Talking about the company’s future plans, Shinji Aoyama, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd, said- “ In India Year 2011 marks beginning of a new Era for Honda. With new aggression, Honda has set up plans for rapid expansion to serve customers better. To meet the expectations of existing customers, our second manufacturing facility at Tapukara, Rajasthan will soon be operational from early 2nd half of 2011 taking our total production capacity to 22 lakh units in FY 2011-12.”,
