What a difference a little color can make. The 2012 Honda CBR250R now comes in traditional red/white/blue tri-color while Shamu is utterly transformed by the addition of some candy blue paint. Its V4 has also been massaged for a fuller torque curve between 2,000 and 4,000rpm and it gains switchable traction control (on/off only). DCT models receive “intelligent” mapping, but don’t adopt the Integra’s 2nd gen system.
