This is really Honda CBR-150R not the CBR-250R. While we are still waiting for the launching of the Honda CBR-250R in mid-February in Malaysia, I’ve stumbled upon this image while browsing through Google. On further checking at AP Honda Thailand website, it is really an all new 2011 Honda CBR 150R after all. This is not a breaking news since this bike is already soft launched in October 2010. CBR-150R looks like the bigger brother CBR-250R which makes it looks much bigger and wider. It is said that this one is identical mechanically to CBR-125R which is in Canada and Europe market.
This is really a great line-up to already great line-up by AP Honda Thailand. Expect to get more of the aftermarket parts from DBS, LHK and POSH from Thailand manufacturers.
Honda Malaysia has offered to test ride their upcoming bike that is the Honda CBR-250R on their webpage. The webpage is accessible here at: http://www.boonsiewhonda.com.my.
I have registered my name there and I think you should too. 250cc bike is a great entry-level superbike for us, moped riders to upgrade our ride as our age (and money) progresses. I am thinking to get the Kawasaki Ninja 250R with the fuel-injection, but for now, I’m still saving for it. I like to experience higher torque and higher horsepower under my control along the road with wind-blowing to my full-face helmet and feel the freedom of biking.
Honda CBR-250R will be officially launched in mid February 2011 in Malaysia. All the details like pricing, dealers and other information will be available at that time.
