Honda CBR150R Coming to India or Not? – Here’s What We Know

Honda officially revealed the new model of the CBR150R sportbike in Indonesia last year with a starting price tag of Rp. 35,900,000 (INR 1.92 lakhs, direct conversion, approximate). It’s a big upgrade and the brand has equipped the new CBR150R with golden USD front forks in addition to CBR250RR-like twin LED headlights. The side fairings and some of the other body panels have also received an upgrade to set the 2022 model apart from the last-gen version of the motorcycle.

Mechanically, no changes have been made and the New Honda CBR150R continues to be powered by the same 149.1cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine, which is good for 17.1HP of maximum power and 14.4Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission.

In terms of hardware components, the motorcycle is equipped with a 276mm front disc brake and a 220mm rear disc brake. Honda is offering the new CBR150R in Indonesia in two variants: one with ABS and one without ABS. The suspension duties are handled by USD forks at the front end and a monoshock at the rear end.

The new model continues to feature the same all-digital instrument console as the old-gen model. The new version of the bike is available in five colours: Dominator Matte Black, Matte Black, Victory Black Red, Honda Racing Red, and Orange-White (MotoGP Edition).

With the emerging trend of entry-level performance bikes in the country these days, Honda also seems to be bringing the next-gen model of the CBR150R. The company has recently filed a patent for the bike in this regard.
