NEW bike FOUR: Honda’s super sweet, retro-esque VTR250 gets new colours and tweaks for the faired and naked versions


There’s few technical details about this bike at the moment (largely, because it’s going to be Japan-only and isn’t unveiled until tomorrow) but we figured we’d still show you these pretty neat new colours for the Honda VTR250.


The retro-ish bike is coming in for a cosmetic tweak because, according to our Japanese source, the factory is trying to take advantage of the recent pro-retro trend with a motorcycle that’s – in a stylistic sense – got both feet firmly in the 1980s.


The two colours that are new on the bike are the two-colour Pearl Sunbeam White and Candy Prominence Red, both get contrasting frame colours too. Looks pretty trick with or without the half-fairing, we think. What do you reckon? Is it retro enough to get your wallet twitching?
