Honda CBR150R (Yamaha R15 Rival) Design patent filed in India

Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Honda does not have a performance-oriented 150cc motorcycle in the Indian market, which is currently dominated by Yamaha R15. The company had discontinued the previous generation CBR150R from our market. Things may change in the near future as Honda has registered the design of the new CBR150R in India.

The current generation Honda CB150R is currently on sale in select Asian markets, including Indonesia. The new model looks like a mini sportbike, with a sharp fairing, raised tail, rear footpegs for a sporty riding position and a chiseled fuel tank. The bike gets an LED lighting system and a reverse LCD instrument console.

The new Honda CBR150R is powered by a 150cc, DOHC, 4-valve, liquid-cooled engine capable of producing 17.1PS at 9,000rpm and a peak torque of 14.4Nm at 7,000rpm . Power is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox. The bike rides on 17-inch alloys shod with 100/80 and 130/70 section tires front and rear respectively.

The suspension mechanism includes USD front forks and a mono-shock unit in the rear. 5-level adjustments for each front and rear suspension further improve overall comfort and handling. For braking tasks, the motorcycle is equipped with disc brakes at both ends.
