    It often takes a humiliating overtake to understand that an early jump off the red light won't help them lead the pact. All I want to say is - Go after green.

    I spoke to one of the Honda representative in Auto Expo. He said bookings for CBR150 will start by late March. And both siblings - 250 and 150 will be available in HRC colors as well. The price quoted by him for CBR 150 was 1.2lakhs(not sure if he said ex-showroom or onroad). If its onroad, its going to give the R15 a run for the money.

    Hope this information helps.

    Yes it is a high revving bike.
    Peak power at high rpms
    It is low on torque though at 12.6Nm

    They only said it will be priced below 1.2lakhs which could be ex showroom.

    All in all, i told a few people here last year that HMSi was going to be taking the market like a storm individually after splitting from HH/HMC
    And i was gunned down as a Honda fanboy! by a few people.
    Well this is what i predicted and this is so far so good!

    Today morning I called Planet Honda, Bangalore and enquired about 150R.

    They said more details will come only after one and half month & OTR price would be around 1.25 lacs.
