2019 Honda CB150R Streetster is now officially available in Thailand for 99,800 baht (INR 2.16 lakh approx). The motorcycle is essentially an upgraded version of the CB150R ExMotion, adding graphics that were never seen before on the motorcycle.
The combinations now include sporty stripes on the fuel tank, 150 monikers on the rear under-seat panels and red brake callipers. The disc brakes are petal-type while front USD forks are finished in a golden shade. The ExMotion design lines are intact on the bike, clearly visible through the round LED headlight and short tail section with an extended plastic fender. The exhaust is almost positioned close to the engine section.
Honda has launched the CB300R in India and CB150R Streetster can be safely seen as a compact version of the motorcycle. If Honda plans to bring this lightweight machine to India, they can share parts among both the bikes and place the CB150R Streetster at INR 1.40 lakh (approximate ex-showroom price). The launch of Yamaha MT-15 has further opened the doors for the premium 150cc streetfighters in India.
The muscular design language will gain popularity at a faster pace while Honda can use the same single channel ABS from Hornet to keep the pricing competitive for India. Another product that rivals these two options in India is KTM Duke 125 with single channel ABS at INR 1.18 lakh (ex-showroom).
The exact engine details for the CB150R Streetster were never revealed by the brand. However, the estimated 20 HP of power and 15 Nm of torque by various sources makes CB150R the most powerful option among the rivals.
