2019 Honda CB150 Verza can be the next big thing for the Indian arm of the Japanese brand as falling sales number demands new products with not just performance but, mass-market approach. The Unicorn has aged well and the halt of production for the 160cc variant means that Honda has a slot left for a product that balances the equation. CB150 Verza comes with a round headlight, not so similar to the premium LED unit of the Neo Cafe series but, carrying a unique feel with the two suspension-mounted parts.
The all-digital console is placed right above the headlight while front, as well as rear suspension components, totally belong to the commuter segment. The fuel tank is well shaped, carrying extensions that are sporty enough to define the overall character of the bike. Honda Unicorn nameplate is very important for the brand and branding the same motorcycle under the Unicorn lineup can be another possibility for sure. The plain black alloy wheels, all-black exhaust, and long seat will help Verza carve a name for itself in the commuter-specific market of India.
The motorcycle is available in Gloss Black, Matt Black as well as Bold Red shade in Indonesia while the Indian market can get more colours influenced from the CB Hornet series. Honda is using designs with round headlights in the 2019 options, making most of them look similar due to their common design inspiration. The CB150 Verza is slightly different due to its commuter-centric profile and launching the same for under INR 80,000 can be the best bet for Honda India.
The motorcycle is expected to arrive in 2020 as BS6-compliant engine can be used for the first time under the Verza nameplate. Also, the price mentioned here can be for the single-channel ABS model. The engine will use fuel injection and other important additions for a refined character.
