2019 Honda CB150R Streetster Unveiled — Will It Makes Its Way To India?

Honda has unveiled their new CB150R Streetster. The new 150cc naked-street motorcycle is launched in Thailand for 99,800 bhat (approximately Rs 2.16 lakh, ex-showroom India price).

The new 2019 Honda CB150R Streetster comes with a new paint scheme and red paint detailing on the brake calipers. The CB150R follows the same neo-retro styling as seen on the CB300R, which recently launched in the Indian market.

The Honda CB150R was first showcased at the 2017 Bangkok International Motor Show in its concept form called the 150SS. The CB150R also carries forward some of the components and tech from its larger sibling, the CB300R.

The 2019 Honda CB150R comes powered by a 149cc single-cylinder engine. Although its exact power figures aren't revealed in the Thailand website, it is expected to produce around 20bhp. The engine is further mated to a six-speed gearbox.

The Honda CB150R also uses the same 41mm upside-down front fork and a rear monoshock suspension set up as the CB300R. It also features the same brakes; this is in the form of a 296mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes, supported by dual-channel ABS as standard.

It comes with similarly designed round LED headlamps, carrying forward the neo-retro styling. Other features on the Honda CB150R include a fully-digital instrument cluster and tyre profile exactly identical to the CB300R offering.

The Honda CB300R was launched recently in India and is priced at Rs 2.41 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). The CB300R is imported into the Indian market, via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) unit. The 300cc neo-retro offering from the brand will be sold exclusively through Honda's 22 'Wing World' Outlets across the country.

Thoughts On The 2019 Honda CB150R

There is no news yet regarding the Honda CB150R's entry into the Indian market. However, we do expect the brand to bring it to the Indian shores. If launched in the country, the Honda CB150R is expected to demand a price of around Rs 1.8 lakh. Also, the Honda CB150R if launched in India will rival the likes of the recently introduced Yamaha MT-15 and the KTM 125 Duke.
