Honda Supremo Almost Confirms New CBR150R & CBR250R Facelifts to Us

At the launch ceremony of the Livo, Honda announced that they will be hosting a press conference on August 4, 2015.

While the CBR150R will get a different more ‘CBR’ like face and better mechanical updates, it is NOT confirmed if Honda will replace the existing CBR250R with the new more powerful CBR300R or instead, bring its (250Rs) facelift to India. With this, let us wait for 4th August which will unravel Honda’s plans…
