The Honda is a rider’s delight, and although not fast, it does put a smile on face every single

When Honda launched the at the 2012 Auto Expo, was taken by surprise. The reason the shock was that the motorcycle was present in India at the Chennai race track for Honda school. Honda decided to this fast growing 150 cc

Just a year before the Honda CBR150R was updated fuel injection in Thailand, was subsequently launched in India. The has been received well by the market and Honda is selling numbers of this machine We ride it for longer than the to find out how it’s like to with the baby CBR.

The appearance of the CBR150R is similar to of the CBR250R. The edgy panels and the tank looks sporty every angle. It’s a attention grabber.

The full-faired CBR150R grabs a lot of eye balls, the “Repsol orange” being here, we think the paint and job does not do justice to the design. The Y-shaped headlight with pilot lamps looks and adds character.

The switch is a massive disappointment on the Honda The indicators and lights are on the wrong than usual. This when you want to indicate, you on the high beam and vice a thing which irritated to the last day of the test.

Neutral in the middle of the speedometer looks an afterthought. Only a single meter is a shocking fact at price. The riding position is bit for the first 2-3 days, no back but wrist does take the After some days on the CBR150R . one gets easily to the position.

After you are used to the long trips are not a problem. We the Honda CBR150R for 250 kms and 500 kms weekend and there were no aches the entire ride.

The seats for the rider and the pillion on the are extremely comfortable, well-cushioned, size for every type of We have really bad roads which are part of the daily and the ride quality truly us. Ride quality is excellent to the … setup and massive 190 mm clearance, which also

The Honda CBR150R has been for its poor low down torque and in the city, but as the kilometers rise, one used to the drivability and finds grunt under 6000 RPM to you at pace with moving The CBR150R is easy to manoeuvre in the the short wheelbase helps to the bike into gaps. is no heaviness in the steering either.

was never an issue even in the traffic jams and even if the fan on, it’s utterly quiet.

The CBR150R is powered by a 149.4 cc, DOHC, 4-valve short engine which produces a power of 17.6 BHP at 10,500 RPM and a torque of 12.66 Nm at 8500 Surprisingly, the engine idles at a high, 1800-1900 RPM! The is, this engine is an engineering

This is only a 150 cc motor but it at a stratospheric 11,800 RPM. other bikes may redline up to the it is not in the same tune as that of the It’s similar to the VTEC which is found in Honda which means, it becomes berserk after it reaches a RPM range all the way to the redline.

The precise fuelling, the ballistic and the stupendous top end power are the party of the CBR150R.

A bike which is under 8000 RPM, turns into an immensely screamer all the way to the redline. It’s the after 8000 RPM which is addictive and makes it impossible to slow on an open or twisty This engine is mated to a gearbox which is slick and Gearing is spot on but acceleration is not off the line. But when it reaches the it makes rapid progress.

gear tops out at 52 km/hr, one at 78 km/hr, third at 105 km/hr, at 122 km/hr, and fifth gear you upto a speedo indicated 141 The braking performance is as good as the performance.

Dynamics of the Honda are astonishing. The motorcycle responds fast to steering inputs, to the clever rake and trail The bike turns in sharply but that little bit of crispness we would have liked. The short wheelbase of 1305 mm, suspension setup and the able makes turning the CBR150R corners a delight.

You can enter a corner at high and exit without any rear drama and then blast extremely quick due to the top end surge, makes the baby CBR extremely to ride. At the very limit, it wide, but in an entirely predictable no nasty surprises. The tyres an important role; our test was equipped with soft MRF Nylo Grip rubber aided a lot of confidence during and braking.

Apart from the buzzy rear view and the windshield at higher RPMs, no or vibrations were experienced at the redline. Red line cut-out is smooth with absolutely no the rider can hold the redline as much time as he wants. light blinks when 2-litres of fuel is left in the Despite the service, brakes squeaking, a problem which is by owners and has not been addressed.

production bikes are shod TVS tyres, which are extremely and don’t inspire confidence riding spiritedly. We highly switching to REVZ radial from MRF for leech level of and safety. There is wind at medium and high speeds and the helmet, it gets annoying some time.

After service, the bike’s economy dropped by 3-4 km/l, the valves were cleaned? is usually done at Honda centres which is subjected to all Km/l number did return to after some 400 odd kms.

seems messy, full of not as tidy as the CBR250R. Fuel cap when lifted, comes in the shocking fact is that the mechanism is omitted on the baby Spring loaded rider pegs are also missing on the Oil dip stick is black in color; you can the quantity, but not the quality. Rear is not an adjustable unit on this

In spite of riding in this weather and dusty area, lubing was not required for our entire period and no chain noise was whatsoever, and the chain sprocket the very end was lubricated. Headlights do an job, illumination and spread in the is quite spot on. Rear mirrors are wide enough and do an job to show what’s behind.

No that the Honda CBR150R is an day practical sports bike, it apart, it’s extremely for both the rider and the pillion, excellent fuel economy, has a engine and equally amazing But it lacks a lot of essential goodies at price point. During the period the Honda CBR150R how user friendly the bike is and how it can be by a newbie.

While most companies you exactly what you want a compromise to live with, on the other hand gives you a easy, everyday bike and you to become better and extract as as you can from the motorcycle. There is one we can vouch for too, we have first blood, and it’s delicious!
