Honda launches the CBR 150R in India in two variants
Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the smallest CBR ever. Honda have launched the CBR 150R in India in two variants, Standard and Deluxe. While the Standard will retail for Rs. 1,16,385, the Deluxe variant will set you back by Rs. 1,17,385 (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The Standard variant will be available in 2 shades– Black with Pearl Sunbeam White and Sports Red with Pearl Sunbeam White while the Deluxe model (with special graphics) will be available in Black with Candy Palm Green & Vibrant Orange with Pearl Sunbeam White colour.
Powered by a liquid-cooled fuel-injected DOHC engine producing 18.3PS of peak power and 12.6 Nm of peak torque, this CBR packs a sizeable punch that belies its small package. Disc brakes are standard at both the front and the rear. Visually, the CBR 150R bears a striking resemblance to its bigger sibling, the CBR 250R, thanks to its adoption of Honda’s dual layered full body cowling, albeit smaller in every aspect. Apart from the powertrain, the only major difference is the twin tubular frame on the CBR 150R, which endows the bike with excellent rigidity and stability.
Honda has already started taking bookings for the CBR 150R and the first deliveries are expected to happen by the end of this Month.
