Honda has introduced a Repsol Edition of its CBR150R motorcycle in Malaysia and it is limited to 800 pieces. The vehicle is painted orange on the fuel tank and alloy wheels, with red and white accents and "REPSOL" graphics on the side panels. However, the design, features, and mechanicals remain the same.
The Honda CBR150R Repsol Edition has only received a new MotoGP-inspired livery, which gives it an air of exclusivity. Only a few units of the vehicle are available, and it is unclear whether the limited-run model will arrive in the United States. If it does, competition in the segment will be significantly increased.
A bi-LED headlamp flanked by narrow LED indicators, fairings with vents, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, and a side-mounted exhaust distinguish the Honda CBR150R Repsol Edition. The motorcycle has a windscreen, an LCD instrument cluster, and mirrors with arrowheads. It has 17-inch wheels with a 100-section tyre on the front and a 130-section tyre on the back.
The Honda CBR150R Repsol Edition motorcycle is powered by a 149.16cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The mill has a maximum power output of 16.09 hp and a maximum torque output of 13.7 Nm.
The Honda CBR150R Repsol Edition is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, as well as dual-channel ABS for improved road handling. The motorcycle's suspension is handled by inverted telescopic forks on the front end and a shock absorber on the back end.
The Honda CBR150R Repsol Edition is priced at MYR 13,499 in Malaysia (around Rs. 2.42 lakh). Later this month, the supersport bike will be available at dealerships across the country.
The Honda CBR150R is an intriguing proposition and a worthy rival to the R15 in this category. It is unlikely to be released in India anytime soon. On that note, Honda plans to launch a new product in India next month.
