The Japanese moto-maker, Honda, planning to update its CBR 150R  in international markets with several cosmetic changes. Incepted in 2002, the major revision this model had received was back in year 2010 when conventional carburetor unit got replaced with modern time-fuel injection system: however the power output went down after this advancement. Later, it got a few cosmetic revisions to become more appealing against its nemesis like the Yamaha R15.



Now, Honda is planning to revise this entry-level sports tourer once again. As seen in the render above, the new 150R will get a new split headlamps unit at front to join the CBR league like its elder siblings. Other visual changes will include reshaped body panels and a new round-shaped silencer, replacing the current model's VFR-like exhaust.

Mechanically, it has been speculated to sit on a tubular frame instead of the twin spar frame as seen on the current model. This frame is likely to be taken from the CBR 250R. The rest of the setup will remain same and the bike will continue to get power from the same 149cc unit that produces 17.8 BHP and 12.6 Nm of torque. Honda has not made any official announcement regarding this new model but we expect it to reach the Indian market before the end of this calendar year.
