New Honda CB150R is a production model of the Honda 150SS Racer Concept
Honda has unveiled the production model of this Honda 150SS Racer Concept, which was first introduced in the Bangkok engine show in March this year. Also the DOHC, 4 valve motor with a six-speed transmission is fuel-injected, and Honda bikes have motivated the Honda CB150R design and can be future-ready, fulfilling Euro 6 emission regulations.
“The new game bikes, produced for Honda customers today, are carefully designed to be ideal. I’ve named five greatest components for the version. To begin with, the programmers of the RC211, RC213V-S and the supersport series such as CBR600RR are the experts in sport bike who could perfectly transfer the DNA of sport bikes to the new CB150R,” said Yoichi Mizutani, president of Honda’s Thai subsidiary A.P. Honda Co., Ltd..
“Second, the new 150cc motor that has been developed for top driving performance with excitement. Third, the meticulous design of the body that has shifted the middle of gravity to be near the rider, to make the automobile to be milder and easier to control. Fourth, the spec of this model is that of a big bike, including X-ADV 750, front suspension, radial mount 4 pot calipers, and ABS with G Sensor that were borrowed from CBR1000RR. Last but not least, we have worked with Japanese top accessory brands like Moriwaki, G’Craft, and Kitaco to design exceptional items to make the CB150R even more outstanding.”
Other features of this Honda CB150R ExMotion include ABS with G sensor, 296 mm floating disc brake with radial mount four-pot calipers swingarm as well as a 150 mm back tyre. Even the Honda CB150R is intended to be marketed in other East Asian markets, and Thailand, in case there aren’t any plans of this a version and we aren’t sure yet.
A Honda official advised CarandBike that there aren’t any plans of developing any bikes in the future. The Honda CBR150R and the Honda CBR250R are now not listed on Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India’s site, although Honda has refused to comment on those two versions for now. A supply in HMSI says the upcoming products will probably be below 200 cc, and that certainly seems to imply that Honda will soon be starting a commuter motorcycle. Could that be the CB150R? It’s early days, and a long shot . And with Honda staying it’s difficult to say anything concrete, at least for now.
