PT Astra Honda Motor or Honda Motor Indonesia has taken the covers off its latest 2021 Honda CBR150R for their local market yesterday evening. Marketed as the new baby brother of the Honda CBR250RR, this 150cc sports bike comes with a number of big-bike parts with a reasonable price tag.
Design-wise, the 2021 Honda CBR150R does carry the CBR250RR cues, especially its front headlight setup. All LED lights from front to back gives the bike a more modern and aggressive appeal while its fully-digital meter display further amps its sporty look and feel.
Underneath all that jazz lies a 150cc single-cylinder DOHC PGM-Fi engine that produces around 17hp at 9,000rpm and 14.4Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. All that power is sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed manual transmission with the addition of an assist/slipper clutch.
Just like the CBR250RR, the 2021 CBR150R also comes with inverted front forks, which are becoming more common on entry-level bikes nowadays. Two variants are up for grabs, with and without ABS. The ABS model comes with Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) for added safety.
Four colours are available for both the ABS and non-ABS versions – Victory Black Red, Honda Racing Red, Dominator Matte Black, and Matte Black. There’s also the Repsol Honda MotoGP edition reserved exclusively in the ABS offering. Price? From IDR39.3 million to IDR40.2 million (around RM11,290 to RM11,550).
