Honda CBR 150R Compared With Yamaha YZF R15

Rating: 5.7/ 10 (3 votes cast)

Honda’s latest offering in the 150 cc bike segment is pitted against one of the most popular 150 cc bikes in India the Yamaha YZF R15. Motorcycling in India saw an alteration in perception once Yamaha plunged the YZF-R15 in mid-2008. This 150-cc from Yamaha altered everything that a 150-cc motorcycle signified for the Indian buyer.

Honda Motors India now would like to switch the manner India considers a 150 cc bike and has brought out its edition of Honda CBR 150R bike in the Indian market. Both are Japanese, both are 150-cc super sport motorbikes, both have their dates with legacy and both are priced competitively, but there are a couple of matters that separate the two bikes. The advanced Yamaha R15, edition 2.0 as they call it, is a straight-out sharply styled machine.

Its abrupt borders and straight lines brand it a sensational smasher. Honda acquires its styling prompts for the CBR 150R from the CBR 250R, established last year. It is a bit on the delicate side that would befit a sports tourer to a higher degree than a super sport rider.

It would be really arduous to pick out which of these two motorcycles appears better, for each one mouths its own design language and each is imposingly styled.

As far as the tone of material and fit-and-finish go the R15 hits over the CBR. Yamaha YZF R15′s sitting position is such that it calls for a lot of lean-forward expressive style. The seat is big and the clip-ons and tank are low providing a feel of stretched forth position.

The CBR 150R provides a more at ease seating. The handlebar, seat and foot-pegs geometry is complete for an easy ride – whether in the city or on the main road.  Both the motorcycles have four-stroke, four-valve, 150-cc engines, liquid cooling, and fuel injection system and are coupled with six-speed transmission systems.

As far as power and torsion figures are related, the R15 attains 17 PS and 15 Nm whereas the CBR draws 17.8 PS and 12.66 Nm. the R15 employs the SOHC mechanism whilst the CBR make the best of DOHC. While the R15 earns maximal power at 8,500 rpm, the short stroke engine of the CBR executes it at 10,500 RPM. In case of the torsion as well, the R15 brings out the maximal torque at 7,500 RPM whereas the CBR arranges so at 8,500 RPM.

Both the motorcycles have a monoshock suspension system at the back end and neither gives up pre-load adjustment. Both are dependable in the corners and dedicate themselves to what is called for. The lonesome little difference that is ascertained between the 2 machines was how briskly they worked out while lashing out a corner bluntly. The R15 has a highly committed posture; it mechanically imparts itself better to sport riding function.

It is a cracking machine to challenge the corners. The CBR could serve alright in just about every aspect. It has a comfy seating for commutation everyday and could make for an adept machine over the weekend.
