Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Limited has a wide range of products in almost every category. It is no surprise that the Japanese automobile manufacturer will replace the CBR250R in India with its CBR300R, which gets an all new design.
The Japanese manufacturer, however, has gone ahead and launched its 2015 CBR150R in Indonesia. The motorcycle sports similar styling to its older sibling CBR300R. Honda also sells the same motorcycle in India and the 2015 model is India-bound.
The CBR150R faces tough competition from fellow manufacturer Yamaha and their YZF-R15. Honda have priced their motorcycle at higher price and have omitted some key features. The 2015 model, however, will get all features that were missed.
The 2015 model gets cosmetic changes in the form of its front dual headlamps. Honda has also redesigned the motorcycles bodywork for a more aerodynamic package. They have also introduced a pro-link suspension, which was missing in the earlier generation model.
The Japanese manufacturer has not fiddled with its engine. Honda will provide a similar 149.4 cc single-cylinder, liquid cooled mill. The 2015 model gets a new chrome plated exhaust, instead of the stubby exhaust. The ECU has been revamped to make their CBR150R more responsive than before.
The 2015 CBR150R generates 13 Nm of peak torque, along with 16.85 horsepower. Power figures have been improved over the outgoing model. Honda has ensured its motorcycle will be efficient without compromising on performance.
Honda is sure to bring its 2015 CBR150R to India, when launched it will continue competing with Yamaha's YZF-R15. We expect the motorcycle to be priced aggressively, when launched. In Indonesia, Honda has launched the 2015 CBR150R in Repsol livery, which can be expected to come to India as well.
