The new 2013 Honda CBR250Rs have been announced! Check them out here.
2013 Honda CBR 250R
Except for the mild color scheme changes, I can't find any technical change in the specs.
But their promotional language sure has changed from the 2012, to 2013 model. They're trying their best to explain how single cylinder is the ideal for smooth power delivery, or something...
In 2013:We equipped the CBR250R with a fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, with double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Why? Because when you put it all together, you end up with a bike that delivers consistent power, mid-range torque and loads of confidence.
The CBR250R uses a single-cylinder engine with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Sure that’s tech talk, but the architecture offers some very real advantages. Maybe the most important is power delivery: a single offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.

Seems like Honda wants to beat Ninja 250 in Sales as soon as possible!
Don't Honk Unnecessarily
So; no changes technically...
Only additional colors - Pearl White/Blue/Red, Red and Black, and the one that everyone MotoGP fan will surely enjoy - Repsol (only available in standard model without ABS). Also new for 2013 are black wheels (not available on the Repsol), and a new black exhaust cove...
Just color changes are being introudced as new year models? Is it because Honda thinks 250 is so perfect that no further changes are required or is Honda is running out of steam?
Any of the above reason doesnt suit Honda's style. May be some big changes are being planned for next year?
