Honda CBR 150R Overview
Honda has been in the 150 cc segment for long, but it really did not have anything to rival the likes of R15, which mind you is still the word in handling. Enter the new contender 150R.Younger Sibling of the 250R which in itself is no bad looker or performer. The 150 is lighter and much more rev-happy than its bigger brother. While some might find the low slung exhaust a bit of a put off, it does keep the centre of gravity low and makes this little bike a sharp handler. While every bike in the 150cc segment might sound like competition to this bike, honestly there is only one other bike you need to audition if you are interesting in CBR 150R and that is Yamaha's brilliant R15 or at a stretch the Duke 200 and the Pulsar 200NS. None of the other 150-200cc are a competition.
Honda CBR 150R Engine & Transmission
As the wings on the badge say, it's a Honda. Expect smoothness and reliability, even after years of thrashing. The 150 cc engine is good for 13 bhp and the transmission is a six speed affair. True to the pocket rocket image you have to thrash the bike to enjoy it the most. The engine is high-revving and the transmission loves the engine very much, which means none of the gears go missing or has to be asked rudely to engage. Everything works flawlessly for the rider, rather than tiring the rider to do all the work.
Honda CBR 150R Mileage
For every litre of fuel you put in the 150r will make you smile for around 42 kms. Which is not the best you can get out of a two wheeler, but remember if you smile for 42 twisty kms you cheeks are going to hurt. And once you think about that you will realise it is awesome what this bike can do and deliver per litre.
Honda CBR 150R Performance and Handling
Performance is not earth shattering but adequate. Don't get it wrong, it is quite food for its category but don't expect the performance of its elder sibling. That said it is a fun bike to make love to turns. In fact for that it might be just a bit better than the bigger CBR 250R. Combined with the smooth transmission and a lighter kerb weight, it is the bike to take to the hills. Overall you get the looks of the bigger bike, while the handling of the benchmark.
