The Thai market gets an all-new Honda CBR150R. The model was unveiled at the recent Bangkok International Motor Show.
It features new fairing, an all-new color instrument cluster, and adjustable suspension. Honda has also updated the disc brakes to a new petal-style, with 2-channel ABS.
It’s powered by a 149 cc, liquid-cooled DOHC, 4-valve engine. It produces 17.3 PS at 9,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm at 7,000 rpm. It’s been tuned to provide better torque across the powerband. This is paired to a 6-speed transmission. The exhaust muffler features Kevlar protection.
The bike sits on a newly-designed lightweight frame for a low and sportier stance. This results in a wet weight of just 135 kg. It’s also quite accessible for many riders with a seat height of just 787 mm. Bad roads won’t be a problem with a 166 mm ground clearance. Speaking of bumps, the new CBR150R features front and rear suspension with adjustable preload.
All of the vital info is displayed on a new two-color (white and red) instrument cluster with a trip meter, fuel consumption meter and gear indicator.
The CBR150R comes with a 12 liter fuel tank. Honda Thailand says the bike is capable of reaching a top speed of 135 km/h.
