    Thumbs up Critics on my baby Ceeber150r

    Despite all the good&bad criticisms, i decided this baby Motor on my own instinct.
    No Regrets.
    Flying a thousand mile, my baby Ceeber is made for each other. Her 'appeal' is the talk of my Town. Refined engine and the class of grip and confidence after 100's are the 'wow' factors.

    I agree the 'Pass light' switch miss is a 'mistake' of HONDA. Sorry HONDA!
    HONDA Techz have to admit and solve. The new factory 'accessories' look Great. HONDA-pls keep improving from Riders feedback and thatz Life.

    I am confident the Performance will still Grow with the mileage. Thanks to the new 4 way Tracks and butter smooth Roads of Madurai. Ride SAFE!!!

    it will start however you should not keep running in reserve.. the fuel pump is in the tank as far as i know and they are wet type..
    due to low level of fuel they sometimes run dry and that causes them to burn up and go kaput...

    and fuel pump is a costly affair.. dont know how much for cbr but for R15 is costs 8k so assume somewhere closeby..

    top up at the earliest when you get the blinking fuel indicator

    I'm sorry but you're not right here. ZMR doesn't use the last drop of petrol as assumed. The last bar blinks at ~1.5-2 L remaining in the tank and its always advised to refill ASAP!
    If the petrol goes dry for a few times, the entire FI unit shall conk off and then a replacement for 12k isn't cheap either

    yes i know that last bar blinks at 1.5 L in ZMR but it can use up all the remaining fuel means completely dry petrol tank .
    but according to CBR salesman the last 2.5 L of fuel cannot be used by the bike hence CBR wont start is dis true ??

    Its the concept of usable reserve. Even in Pulsar/Discover, the usable reserve is less than the amount of petrol actually left in the tank. Say you have 4 litres left over when the bike comes in reserve, but only 2 litres is usable. In that case, once you finish those 2 litres, the bike won't move any further (even with 2 litres remaining).

    Maybe, that's the case with CBR. It is done to protect the FI mechanism from going kaput. Its a wet dip system and needs to be submerged in petrol all the time. ZMR doesn't have this mechanism and hence, the FI getting conked off is an Achilles' heel to a very potent bike.

    To be frank, I for one believe that CBR150R is more suited for those that want to have several options available like a ride that can be taken to the track. One that also provides good pillion comfort so that he doesn't have to get another bike for that. And also one that provides good ride comfort so that he can do the normal everyday commute without too much problems. It gives equal if not more performance compared to the R15. The 150R is not as good as the R15 in terms of looks, but that is subjective. Other than that, its quite good. If you are ready to spend close to 1.3L and looking for a good all round bike, the CBR 150 R is your best bet.

    You're wrong, none of the bikes you have mentioned belong to the SuperSports category. The Ninja 650R, GT650R are more like a Sports Tourer while the FZ6 is a naked/street bike. True SuperSports are the likes of Yamaha R6, Ninja ZX-6R, CBR 600RR. Some people may think that because the 650 rides have a higher CC they're more powerful than the 600 CC SuperSports. But if you look at the specs closely, you'll realise that 600 ones have the true power to be ranked as SuperSports. The ST7 doesn't even come into the picture here as its an obvious cruiser.

    Just for all future bikers opting for a CBR150R.

    The bike now comes with a pass switch + a switch to just turn on the pilot lamps and the tail lamp without the headlamps.

    To most of the previous post out there. Just because an R15 or a Duke sells in large numbers does'nt make it a better bike.
    In India it sells more if its cheaper... but does it mean that the bike is better.

    A CBR's comfort is in-comparable. Sit in an R15 and everything starting with you ass upto your wrists and neck start paining.
    Not only that a CBR's comfort for a pillion is an added advantage. Its a sports bike not a track machine without a pillion seat like the DUKE RC200 / RC390.
    Better pillion seats are welcome. Sad for those who dont have a good pillion seat, I mean what can we do about it...?

    Coming to riding. Torque figures..? why dont the R15 guys cry about the power figures...? Higher maintenance costs..?
    Pulsar guys about their cluncky gears and clutches. Where is the build quality there buddy..? A pulsar vibrates like hell on speeds near 100.
    I agree with the power and pickup, but what about the rest..? You guys just highlight the goods in those bikes, do also cry about the cons.

    I'd say these guys really dont know to compare bikes.
    The CBR150R is an all rounder, jack of all trades, I can say a CBR150R would have "been there and done that" in any situation.
    I really doubt if an R15 looks better than a CBR. I mean it looks sharp angles and has some aggression due to sharp edges here and there.
    But a CBR's styling looks more defined, classy and sombre...


    Plus there is a newer version of CBR150R rumored to be released from Mar 2015, and a CBR300R Dec 2014.

    I never cared about pilot lamps or pass seitch, but engine kill switch is important when riding in daily stop go traffic. I hope they will include engine kill switch in 2015 CBR150R
