The naked motorcycle market seems to have grabbed a lot of attention. More and more manufacturers are introducing the naked avatars of their fully faired motorcycles as these products are more convenient to ride within the urbanscape. Recently, we saw Kawasaki introduce the naked variants of the Ninja 300 and Ninja 650 as Z250 and ER-6n respectively in India.

Now, building on its CB150R Streetfire nakes, the Japanese two-wheeler major showcased the 2014 variant of the motorcycle at the Indonesia Motorcycle Show 2014, the naked variant of its entry level sports motorcycle, the CBR150R, at this year’s Indonesia Motorcycle Show. For starters, the new variant of the CB150R gets new graphics and a new engine under cowl for 2014. Besides the usual bits, the red CB150R also gets body coloured rims. We wish they would have painted the frame red instead of the wheels though. The exhaust also gets a mono colour treatment with the heat shield painted black, same as the canister. Rest of the motorcycle remains more or less the same.

The CB150R is powered by the same 150cc liquid cooled engine that produces 17.5 bhp of power and 12.5 Nm of torque that is found on the CBR150R. The CB150R never made it to India as Honda somehow didn’t deem it fit enough for our market. But with the rise in demand for affordable entry-level performance motorcycles, we feel that it would be a great idea to introduce the CB150R in the Indian car market.

    Yes, We want honda to launch CBR150R naked version. I have been waiting for long for this bike. There are no good bikes in Indian market now.honda Unicorn is the only option left now and HONDA has not launched a new bike in 150-200 CC segment.
    CBR 150R with Fairing with 150 CC goes out of budget for common man.
    My Opinion: Launch of CBR 150R would be a great hit at this point of time

    HONDA SHOULD LAUNCH CB STREETFIRE 150R ASAP IN INDIA .IT WILL BE A HUGE HIT AMONG THE MASSES .Y IS HONDA DELAYING GOOD NAKED BIKE LAUNCH IN INDIA .ESPECIALLY IN 150CC SEGMENT AND JUST SELLING UNICORN FOR A DECADE .

  • T.R.Natarajan says:

    I personally like the model, as it resembles CB unicorn one of the best selling 150cc model in India. If it is launched with rim painted either in black or silver definitely it will be a big hit. so honda should consider launching this model without any hesitation ASAP.

  • This bike should be launched in India, considering that Honda CBR150R hasn’t really been able to entice the Indian audience as much as the R15. The naked version if launched should do justice to Honda’s market share in the 150cc and above segment.
