Honda CBR 150R for India?

by Deepak on December 13, 2008

Yamaha and Suzuki have had more exposure than any other bike company in India because of the launch of FZ16 and R15 from Yamaha and GS150R from Suzuki. But Hero Honda and Honda are busy stickering up their bikes. New CBZ Xtreme, New Passion Pro are both just sticker upgrades and has no change in the engine or performance, which seems to be quite lame. And many Indian bikers got disappointed with the launch of Honda Unicorn Grand Prix edition, another sticker work, which is not so good looking and gives an idea that Honda is just trying to catch up in the two-wheeler market.

Will Honda susprise us in 2009? I am also a fan of Honda cars and I feel that Honda is not intimidated by the bike launches from Yamaha and Suzuki. The people at Hondas may have something bigger in store for us and are waiting for the right time, I guess. Now, Introduce yourself to Honda CBR 150R!

Honda CBR 150R

The CBR series of bikes from Honda is more than just a famous brand name. Now with the launch of Yamaha R15, India is in need for competing sports bikes with latest technology. This may lead to Honda bringing the CBR 150R to India. This bike is far more technologically advanced than the R15 and is a real sports bike, not a sporty looking bike! Anyway this is not a news, but just a speculation. Stay tuned for more bike news.

Honda CBR 150 Technical Specifications:

Engine : liquid cooled DOHC 4 Valve

Hi,
Honda aint getting the bike to India – they are using the bike only for the races down south

The biggest flaw with this bike is it does not have FI. Nowadays FI is in and i am sure Honda won’t launch this bike without FI, so they need to do something.

ANAND March 5, 2009 at 3:54 pm

i dont think dis bike will be a success…
because,in india looks are being more considered than the performance…

secondly,it doeSNT have the fuel injection dat means a lot of vibrations in the upper powerband..

HOPE,THE CBR WILL BE GIVEN FAIRING JUST LIKE THE BIKE IN NEW ZEALAND…

hi. now honda needs to improve as it is cheating us by providing lower qualities bikes. as per my opinian cbr 150 must have fi, digital speedo, max speed 160 kmph and avg abt 40 km./ltr

honda cbr150r isnt cheating bout lowering the quality..we got that bike like 6 yrs ago and thats still the same model w/ different decals but consider that this baby is 6 yrs old and have to beat most of 150cc bikes here. however honda needs a new model for the cbr 150r line-up

It is highly unlikely that honda will launch in India immediately. first of all the design look outdated considering the current 150 cc bikes available in India, its direct competitor will be YZF R15 and Pulsar series. compared to both this machine would look outdated without a serious revamping.

Apart from this the current waiting period of unicorn is running close to 3 months!,instead of increasing production capacity and tapping the full potential of that bike it would be unlikely for honda to invest in a new production line and produce another 150 cc bike and confuse their own potential customers

This is what i feel..anyway big companies may have totally different plans! u never know

Guys, I live in Indonesia, here we are very happy bcoz honda sell their CBR150, and other manufacturer also sell a similar bike like Suzuki FXR150 (DOHC, 21PS) Kawasaki Ninja 150RR (30PS) Yamaha Vixion 150 (15PS). here engine capacity is not the only aspect on performance, Indonesian biker are provided some racing parts, such CDI aftermarket, exhaust tube, valve, etc by local suplier. so its easy to upgrade a 125cc 4 stroke for gain 21PS. For CBR150 also, there are racing parts to upgrade engine performance, so it can head to head with Kawak N250R on road.

Dudes, this bike is already in india since a year but its going track race tests down the south. Expected to launch in sep 2010…

ram July 7, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Editor Note: Yes, this bike is in India for almost an year and can see burning the tracks of Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore. But, mind that these bikes have brought down by Honda only for racing purposes and definitely not for sale nor testing purposes, and this was confirmed by a Top most Honda official who i know personally. If at all this bikes comes to India at a later stage, the price expected by Honda is a whooping 3.2 Lakhs and not a mere 1 Lakh price tagged bike.
