2021 Honda CBR150R Revealed With New Paint Schemes
It does not sport any mechanical changes and the update is purely cosmetic.
Honda has revealed the updated 2021 model year CBR150R, with new paint schemes, in Thailand.
The entry-level fully faired motorcycle can now be had in any of the following colour options – Black with Orange, Grey with Red, Matte Black with Red and Red with Black, in the southeast Asian country.
Although the traditional Red colour does suit the bike more, the Grey with Red paint scheme with the Red front wheel and underbelly cowl and CBR logo in Yellow, does stand out.
Of course, for those who like all things black, there is the Matte Black option to choose from as well.
Overall, the bike’s styling has not changed. It continues to sport the dual LED headlight cluster with LED DRLs, a windscreen, mirrors mounted on the fairing, a sculpted fuel tank, split seats and a sharp (and high-set) tail section.
Bikers who like a committed riding posture will also like this motorcycle what with its low-set handlebar and rear-set foot pegs. Also, there is a full-LCD digital cluster.
No hardware changes have been made and thus, it continues to sport telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear (both are adjustable), there are petal-type disc brakes with the option of ABS.
Riding on 100-section front and 130-section rear tyres, the 2021 Honda CBR150R weighs 135 kg overall.
Powering the motorcycle is a 149cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes a maximum of 17.1 PS at 9000 RPM and 14.4 Nm peak torque output at 7000 RPM. It comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.
Priced at Thai Baht 99,700 (Rs. 2.44 lakhs), the Yamaha R15 rival is unlikely to be launched in India anytime soon.
