    After seeing the CBR150R thread locked, for the cited reason of no proper review, it came into my mind that why xBhp has not reviewed the CBR150R? Thankfully, its up now, and I am happy for that.

    A Nice review...there are already many detailed review on Honda CBR150R itself...but it would have been better if u did a R15 vs Honda CBR150R comparison instead of comparing with CBR250R...pics of R15 & CbR150r together would have also helped..anyway..hope u write a comparision between R15 & Honda CBR150R soon...

    Very well written impressions. Short and precise. Answer all my questions.

    Default Better comparison needed!

    CBR 150 R and CBR 250 R except for looks share little similar, could have been way better had R15 V2.0 and CBR 150R are compared between each other!

    And while comparing the peak power of CBR150R and R15 V2.0 I accept CBR peaks a couple of RPM above the R15 but then the power figure at the same rpm for both could have been even more helpful(say what is the power of the baby CBR at an rpm where R15 peaks)

    Great photos! CBR150R looks good, initially I did not like it but Its growing on me. Saying so I still love the classical looks of my Ceeber. Everyday morning I get up the first thing I wanna see is my Black babe So looks are very very subjective.

    Bajaj Pulsar 180 - dts i |

    Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.

    It was not that far on the map.

    Why are the Honda machines priced higher than most other bikes ? What are the things they import ?

    CBR150R: Revvy engine that develops spunk at high rpms like a track bike, but has comfortable ergonomics / stance for the street.

    R15: Ergonomics / stance like a track bike, but has more torque lower down for better street performance.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Plonk the R15 engine in the CBR and vice versa and you would have 2 very focused specialist bikes.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    The switches are damn pathetic! Disappointment for a fan like me! Seems as if they're giving out the bike for free... If it was really pinching them, they could have raised another thousand to save the bike from ugliness! Or, could have declared seats as accessories and charged separately for it..

    They are increasing their dealerships like crazy, expecting at least 2 new ones in 2-3 months in my small town, wonder if they'll increase production..

    Funny actually since till now the R15 was flogged for developing power/torque at high rpms and now it seems that it actually has a street friendly engine.

    Not just the switches but the seat cover material, footpeg rubber, finish around the speedometer, finish of the black plastics seemed out of place on a 1.3 Lakh bike. The R15 and 200 Duke definitely has much better fit and finish.

    Just noticed that... true disappointment... I could understand why they ruined a good design as Twister by putting in Shine foot-pegs and other ready-made parts of other models incorporated in it, as it was a low segment bike.. but seriously... CBR150R is murder of fetus..

    Seems Honda has got two departments, one makes initial designs which are good and other gets to make it as ugly as possible, cost-cutting is a by-product.
