Honda CB150R Streetster vs Yamaha MT-15 (BS6 Model)

Honda CB150R Streetster vs Yamaha MT-15 (Quick Comparison): At present, the updated BS6-compliant Yamaha MT-15 is available in India for INR 1.39 lakhs, leaving everyone stunned with such a high price tag for a motorcycle that is not equipped with premium features like 2-channel ABS, USD front forks, and aluminium swingarm in comparison to the international-spec model.

Last year, Honda unveiled the fully-loaded CB150R Streetster in Thailand. However, the model seen here can also skip most of the fancy components in favour of a lower ex-showroom price tag in India. The CB150R Streetster comes with a lightweight chassis, wide tyres and a long list of performance-enhancing features.

As of now, Honda has no official plans to launch the new CB150R in India though, we can expect the brand to launch the same in the Indian market by early 2021. Here is a quick comparison between the BS6-Compliant Yamaha MT-15 and the new Honda CB150R Streetster.
