2021 Honda CBR150R breaks over, to rival Yamaha R15
Honda has launched the new yearly updated CBR150R in the Malaysian market. The bike has been priced at RM 12,499 which is equivalent to ₹2.21 lakh, as per the current exchange rates. The new motorcycle has been given an updated exterior styling along with a revision to the features list. It has been made available in two colour shades - Matte Charcoal Grey Metallic, and Candy Scintillate Red.
The MY21 Honda CBR150R gets a slightly tweaked exterior design that is reminiscent of CBR250RR's design. There is a very sharp-looking quad-LED setup at the front end that appears to be very distinctive and aggressive. It now also sports a slightly longer front visor that has been aimed to improve aerodynamics at high speeds. There is a fully digital LCD screen that (apart from the regular data) also displays a gear position indicator as well as fuel consumption readouts.
