This is my new bike. Merah!
One of the latest “hot” yet relatively affordable sports bikes in the Malaysian market is the Honda CBR150R, brought in officially by Boon Siew Honda Malaysia and it costs RM10,363.17 on the road including insurance. The Honda CBR150R is powered by a 150cc (149.4cc) 4-stroke carburetted single cylinder 4 valve DOHC engine with 11.0:1 compression and CDI ignition, mated to a 6-speed wet clutch manual transmission. It produces 18.98 PS at 10,500rpm and 13.5Nm of torque at 8.500rpm.
The engine is water cooled with an electric fan that turns on automatically when needed. The bike has a 10 liter fuel tank which will cost RM19.20 to fill up at current RON97 fuel prices. Front suspension uses telescopic shocks while the rear is a monoshock. The meter panel has a speedometer, an RPM meter, a fuel gauge and a temperature meter. Brakes are discs at both the front and rear, sized 276mm and 220mm respectively.
