Honda CBR 150R Ownership by Vishal

Hi guys I’m Vishal, Kerala. I’m an engineering student 1st year mechanical engineering. all of you I’m also a great bike I bought my cbr 150R just than 6 months ago.

I’m to give you A review of my bike, so sit and enjoy.

Flash Back

The CBR is my first bike. I always about bikes from my hood. I’m very fond of bikes and each day my

passion is increasing. My dream is to own a superbike and I’m that I’ll definetly it one day. I learned to ride on my friend’s Yamaha FZS and the bike was smooth and easy to ride.

I was in 12th most of my friends bike and I doesn’t have Like everybody I started my parents for buying anew But they were against it. Its of the more bike accidents and our bad conditions.

By march 2012 I my 12th and again I started my parents and at last they it.

Which Bike?

Now I started on which bike I should I searched internet, automotive watched lot of reviews and at last I to go for Yamaha R15 v2.0. But my friends say R15 will not suit for me. The main is my height.

I’m about 6ft tall and it I’ll be a giant sitting when I it. So I’m again in confussion, at that specs about launching of the new Honda CBR spreads out.on 15 march ’12 officially announced the booking of

Before launching in India the was introduced in Thailand and some East Asian markets. I got feedback about the bike many thail blogs and I was even more impressed I first saw the pictures of Indian of 150R especially in vibrant and I was sure that this is the for me.

Finally after spending on internet watching reviews, and many bike journals I to book the bike. On 11 june “12 to the showroom and at first sight I had in love with the ceeber. I the deluxe version in vibrant Deluxe version priced 1k than the standard version.

The amount was 5000.

The Worst

Same thing happened to me like every other the long long waiting While booking the showroom that the bike will be with in a week. But after two the bike doesn’t come.

I up every day to showroom and every they reply ‘your has not yet come’.

At last after a waiting my bike reached on 8th july. But again They can’t give the because of some problem the temporary permit.finally on 12july got my ceeber.


The best day ever in my I reached showrrom and cleared all the and got the keys of my ceeber. I just explain how happy I was. I the engine and I feel like its taken to the road every were on my ride. You will be a star when you ride it.

moment with my ride mo so proud.

Now get in to the actual review. that I have to say some The bike is completely in stock No engine modifications have done.

Only add on’s keiti transparent tank LED park bulbs and nitrogen in tyres. The bike has now covered and two services has been done.

and Engine: (8.5/10)

This is the 150R really shines Like every other motorcycles, the 150R is also refined. Its powered by a 149.4cc cooled engine with (Double Overhead Cam shaft) and 17.58 bhp of power at 10500rpm and a torque of 12.66nm at 8500rpm.

It appear that the engine was to be a high revving machine produces most of power at rpm’s.

Even at high the silken smooth engine has no But when it comes to city the performance is slightly sluggish and on it will be a blast. The 150R with Honda’s famous (Programmed Fuel Injection which makes sure a throttle response every

The 6speed gear box is smooth and into every gear

Looks Design: (9/10)

you stop by a signal you are going to heads, that kind of you will enjoy when you it. The physical appearance of the bike similar to its elder sibling The sporty colours and graphics, extend to the tank gives a appearance to the 150R.

The black in engine case and alloys great. The Y shaped headlight black surrounds and eye like pilot lamps add a brutish

The multi layerd side enhances the styling and also it easier to replace single rather than the whole in case of crashes. The short design helps in the mass of bike. The exhasut note in 150cc segment.

The instrument is same as that in the 250R.

It is designed and gives good under all comes an orange backlit. The meter shows basic information turn indicators, odometer, meter, fuel meter, and engine temperature. The wide tank offers a good to clamp on with knees and its position gives it a bigger feel.

The inlet of fuel is such that it has a metal across its diameter from that prevents the dispenser from going in completely.while attendants at every pump about it. (pic attached). tank of fuel gives a around 500km, so frequent for fueling can be avoided during

Fit Finish: (8/10)

The overall fit and is good. The plastic quality and quality is good. Panels are finished with no panel

The seats are wide and gives comfort for the rider as well as the The pillion seat got a rear rail also which is usable one. But there is some things which the first is switch gear.

The of switch gear is not up to the mark and it straight from cbstunner, but an fact is that its big brother CBR also got the same design (pic attached). The 150R misses the engine killing and the passing flash switch. The foot peg design is also not

Small metal pegs have been better is now common. Another thing is the position of number plate is mounted on bracket thats way too up front. While go over the front mudguard will hit on the plate.

Thats why I put number on my visor.

Ride, Comfort, Braking: (9/10)

The ride is not too but neither too stiff. I never wobbling or vibrations even at higher speeds. The riding is perfect for sport riding as as touring purpose also. The of bike is really awesome. It unbelievably quickly.

The bike is steady on straights. The stability tonnes of confidence to go faster and

I haven’t faced any problems excessive engine heating at worst traffic conditions. The bars doesn’t feel not pressure on palms and wrists, and won’t be a problem of backpain as the posture is comfortable. The short base and light weight, really boost the flickablity of

It also gives good wind stability.

The 150R to corner and turns in quickly, its diamond type twin-spar encourages to ride on the limit. The always steers precise and The nissin brakes are razor and it gives excellent feedback. The clearance of 150R is 190mm.

under very bad road there is no issues with the clearance. Suspension is soft and I felt that the front dive’s a bit too much. But the rear is perfect.

Accessories Miscs

The pillion seat detaches for a compact area and can pretty hold bike’s documents, gloves. The 150R comes a tool kit with 2 spanners and drivers. It comes with a as stock, its functional but looks without it.

Headlight: It has a 12V 60/55W which are very powerful and good visibility on highways.

It comes with MRF zapper-Q tyres, they ensure cornering, excellent traction and

1st Service

I did the 1st service at 435kms. Oil and engine oil were changed. oil is fully synthetic with the being 10w30 from Engine became lot smoother the service.

Also there is an improvement in the note.

Kitna Deti

Well CBR 150R has a good economy. It gaves a decent of 45kmpl. I got a maximum of 49 kmpl on (at 6000-7000rpm).

Full tank gives a range around thats pretty good for purpose.


A comparison 150R’s rival r15v2.0.

are 150cc supersport machines and are japanese.

R15 comes with system and CBR hav DOHC.

R15 has 17ps and cbr makes 17.8ps.

comapared to cbr r15 has up pillion seats and since the of gravity is moved up it affects the

The aluminium swingarm on r15v2.0 is an one.

Compared to r15v2.0 the cbr little bit more sharper of its shorter wheelbase.

It would be difficult to decide which one better each is impressively
