It would rival Yamaha R15 V3 primarily till Suzuki GSX-150R is launched internationally. The engine on the CBR150R now produces more torque than before.

Honda CBR150R (New) Review

09 Jul, 2017 02:06 PM

Overview

The importance of Honda CBR150R would always be alive in the Indian hearts as most of the fans have been waiting for the twin headlight version from a long time. Missing out the first twin headlight version, Honda may launch the facelift of the same, which has been recently launched in Indonesia at a price tag of IDR 32.5 million (INR 1.64 lakhs).

Design and Style

Honda finally delivers the aggression which CBR brand name was missing in the entry level products. The front looks very much improved whereas the side profile now matches to that of the elder CBR500R. The perfectly surrounded full fairing looks more sporty and eye catchy than ever. It uses LED headlight for the Indonesian version. The lights add more charm to the bike, thereby providing a better front fascia. New exhaust as alloy wheel design makes it practically look better than a current generation R15. It comes with a more precised fuel tank for better leg placement while the rider comes over sharp turns. The extended front visor would provide better wind blast protection.

Dimensions and Weight

The bike measures 1983 mm in length, 694 mm in width and 1038 mm in height. The bike comes with a ground clearance of 166 mm and gets a 1311 mm of wheelbase. The bike weighs just 135 kg, with 12 liter of fuel tank.

Instrument Console

CBR150R comes with an all-new fully digital instrument console. The screen is divided into two sections with the upper section for the tachometer and lower for all the other available information like gear, odometer and speedometer.

Engine and Gearbox

The bike comes with a 149.16 cc engine producing 16.9 BHP @ 9000 rpm and 13.7 NM @ 7000 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and gets fuel injection as well liquid cooling for the engine. The 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine would be more refined than before and performance figures for the motorcycle are expected to improve in this version.

Brakes and Suspension

Honda CBR150R comes with 276 mm of front disc brake whereas the rear disc measures 220 mm. It misses on the ABS part and may come with Honda's CBS for India. The front gets telescopic forks whereas the rear uses a Pro-link suspension. The bike comes with 100/80-17 front tyre whereas the rear measure 130/70-17.

Variants and Shades

The CBR150R is expected to carry a single variant for the Indian market. Chances for an ABS version would stay on as Indian government has made ABS mandatory on bikes above 100 cc from the coming year. It would be available in Revolution White, Honda Racing Red, MotoGP Edition and Nitro Black.

Expected Price

Honda is expected to price the new CBR150R for around INR 1.30 lakh. It may get a higher priced ABS variant at a later stage in the international as well as Indian market. As of now, Honda has no plans to launch the 2016 model of CBR150R in India.
