Honda CBR150R/CBR300R India Launch in Coming Months

A recent report from AutoCar India claims that Honda is almost ready to launch an all-new product in the category of CBR150R and CBR250R in India. They are expected to replace both the bikes with better options but one of them will make its way into India this financial year.

BS3 to BS4 conversion for both the CBR motorcycles was avoided by Honda and thus, they went off production from April 1, 2017. As Honda has updated the CBR250R with 300R in most markets, India is also expected to get the same model for better competition with KTM and other mid capacity bikes available in India.

New Honda CBR150R

After the introduction of Africa Twin and Cliq in India, Honda still has two new products that would enter India this year. As they even hinted at two scooters and two bikes, one of them could belong to anyone from these two (2017 CBR150R and CBR300R) bikes. This could even be a beneficial move if considered from TVS Apache RR310S launch time frame as both will be closely performing within the same segment.

On the other hand, if New Honda CBR150R comes into action, it can prepare well for upcoming Yamaha R15 V3. Bulk of buyers are buying sub 1 lakh 150cc bikes presently and entry of both these bikes could help them climb a segment up into performance 150cc biking.

    I think it will be flap series as many of them needs the pilion rider shorter like old CBR but it’s too tall like r15

  2. Deep Jyoti karmakar says

    Honda CBR 300 need more power as like Yamaha R3 and Kawasaki 300. It should be double silinder and need near about 40 bhp top speed 180km/h . That’s it
