The 2016 Honda CBR150R has undergone some serious cosmetic and mechanical updates. Honda says that the 2016 model is a completely new motorcycle. The bike features a new design, LED headlights, LED indicators, completely digital instrument cluster, a sportier looking split seat setup and a re-designed exhaust.

The earlier 150cc DOHC liquid cooled engine has been re-tuned and now produces a power output of 17.1 PS at 9,000 rpm while the peak torque of 13.7 Nm comes at 7000 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a 6 speed transmission. A longer swing arm replaces the conventional one in the outgoing model with the difference standing at 13 mm.

The Repsol variant is priced at IDR 33.3 million (Rs 1,69,486). Honda hasn’t revealed any details about the India launch of the 2016 CBR 150R but we expect to see the updated motorcycle in the sub-continent in the current calendar year.

    Thats sure.. And for that it will have to launch first! I don’t think Honda is interested in its Indian fans! The CBR 250R is the same model since 2011 in India, while globally it updated with twin headlamps and all in 2013, and even this year HMSI is not going to launch the new one! I just can’t understand what’s wrong with them, Globally Honda is seen as a race focused machine, while in India they are just interested in beating the sales of Hero. They have launched cheap quality machines like Dream series and Livo! By the time HMSI will launch this new CBR 150R in India (God knows how many years from now) it will be outdated globally and Yamaha will have a new R15 or any 200cc bike, which will beat this (then) hands down!

    For God’s sake launch this bike in India as soon as possible HMSI!! Else any of your remaining fans will have to switch to Yamaha or KTM or even Pulsar (at least Bajaj takes care of its Indian fans!)
