CBR150R Repsol is another super bike developed by Honda which has a new twist on the stripping that makes its body sporty and sharp. Its design was derived from the contemporary look of CBR1000RR to its line stripes on the fairings but with added cool racing graphics since its the Special Edition. Its aggressive design and riding position makes it a head turner on the street. Honda CBR150R Repsol is armed with OHC, 4-stroke, single cylinder liquid-cooled engine with the capacity to release a maximum power of 13.11 kW @ 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 12.66 Nm @ 8,500 rpm. With such power, the bike can be able to reach a long mile range. This powerful engine combined with the PGM-FI technology are responsible for the bikes ultimate performance, smooth response and Eco-friendly emission. The liquid cooling system is able to maintain the appropriate temperature for the entire motor and parts that supports the reliability and consistency of the bike on the road. Furthermore, the CBR150R Repsol Special Edition arrives with a truss, or lightweight trellis frame and a Pro-Link rear suspension. The CBR150R machine is also geared up with a digital dashboard that includes a fuel meter, speedometer, trip meter, odometer, clock, and engine temperature readings that will guide the rider all the way. New rearward sets and new brakes are added to the bike for more comfortable riding with less energy spent. Driving on low, mid and high speeds is still stable thanks to the bike’s mono-shock suspension.
We are truly impressed on the ride quality of Honda CBR150R Repsol though we took it to bad road surfaces. It is an excellent motorcycle for daily commuting this is due to its advanced setup and enormous ground clearance which is also a big help. Riding it in the city, the engine reveals its power and torque which satisfies of expectations. It became even more interesting because as we go farther we get used on how to handle and control the bike’s capabilities. It can grunt under 6000 RPM to keep us at pace with the moving city traffics. CBR150R Repsol is easy to maneuver with no heavy steering. Hitting the red line at 85000 rpm makes CBR150R scream and we were not able to go on twisted roads under that speed. The 6-speed mated gearbox delivers smooth and slick response. The perfectly setup rake and trail aids for an extreme feedback to our steering inputs. Without a doubt, Honda CBR150R is the most practical commuter bike which is comfortable to ride, fuel efficient with exceptional engine. The bike is quite under 8000rpm but it suddenly became a screamer once we reached the redline.
