16 February 2013. The Honda VTR250 has been around since 1997 and remained pretty much the same design ever since. The engine is a 90 degree V-Twin with a capacity of 249cc, a slightly more fun one than the one on the CBR250R. It churns out a healthy 29.5HP @ 10,500 RPM and 21.9Nm of torque at 8,500 RPM.
The 2013 Honda VTR-F gets a semi faired version that houses a VFR’ish reflector design. Also new is the instrument cluster that gets a analogue tachometer with a LCD screen, while the VTR standard version uses a smaller LCD screen with two analogue dials. Apart from these differences both the versions are pretty similar.
Both feature a 5 speed gear box with a well sorted gearing, the brakes are twin piston ones with 140/70-17 rear and 110/70-17 front wheels to work with. Both versions feature 41mm telescopic forks and a rear mono-shock. The VTR weighs 161 kilograms and the VTF-F weighs 164.2 kilograms and comes in Magna Red, Graphite Black and Pearl White.
