Final Verdict On Honda CBR 150R
Honda CBR 150R is a good motorcycle in the premium 150cc segment, and honda must bring this amazing bike to India. Due to the emission norms the power and torque output has taken a dip, but still, it is a good overall package.
CBR 150R is a lightweight machine that can be easily used for daily rides. Due to its easy riding posture, it also can be used as a sports tourer. However, the pillion seat on the new CBR 150R is not that comfortable.
If honda launches this bike in India under the Rs 1.5 Lakhs price range, then definitely it will pose a threat to Yamaha R15 v3 sales numbers.
