If the specifications published above are the same, then Yes, the New CBR 150R produces more power than the old version by 0.9Bhp and much more than the Japanese rival Yamaha YZF R15 that produces 16.76Bhp. Yes, the new Honda CBR 150R in spite of the bigger rear rubbers will be faster than the rivals who will only be visible in the rear view mirrors.
