22 Feb 2021: Special editions of Honda CBR150R, CBR250RR motorbikes launched in Indonesia
Japanese automaker Honda has unveiled special edition models of its CBR150R and CBR250RR motorbikes in Indonesia. Their availability in India, however, seems unlikely.
The two vehicles sport HRC livery similar to the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade, which combines bright red paint with blue and white highlights. However, other design elements, tech, and engines are the same as their standard models.
Here's our roundup.
Design: The bikes have a fully-faired look
The Honda CBR150R and CBR250RR have a sporty fully-faired design, featuring a muscular fuel tank, stepped-up seat, an upswept exhaust, a raised windscreen, a split-headlight cluster, and golden-colored front forks.
The bikes pack a digital instrument cluster with an LCD display as well as an all-LED setup for lighting. They ride on blacked-out designer alloy wheels.
Fact: A 6-speed gearbox takes care of transmission
The Honda CBR150R is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder engine that makes 17.2hp and 14.4Nm. Meanwhile, the CBR250RR runs on a 249cc, parallel-twin motor that generates 41.5hp and 25Nm. The mills are linked to a 6-speed gearbox along with a slip-and-assist clutch.
Safety: Rider safety is ensured by disc brakes on both wheels
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Honda CBR150R and CBR250RR are equipped with disc brakes on both wheels. The latter also comes with a quick shifter, three riding modes, and ride-by-wire for better handling on roads.
Suspension duties on the motorbikes are taken care of by inverted USD forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Fact: Honda CBR150R and CBR250RR special editions: Pricing and availability
In Indonesia, the special edition of Honda CBR150R carries a price tag of IDR 40,600,000 (roughly Rs. 2.10 lakh) while the CBR250RR is priced at IDR 77,300,000 (approximately Rs. 4.01 lakh). However, they are unlikely to make their way to India.
