It will produce a whooping 18.3 bhps and 12.6 Nm of peak torque. One can say this will be some competition for the Yamaha R15 v.2, though the lower torque can give the R15 an edge. But Honda’s spot on engineering and good will in India and great response to its elder sibling in the market will ensure its success.

The Motorcycle will be priced around 1.20 lakh which i believe will be on the higher side as CBR 250R is available at a price of 1.59 lakh. The most important competiton on price front will come from the Yamaha R15 v.2 which is priced very sharply around a lakh of rupees. Its a bike worth waiting and its a bike you should not miss if you are looking to buy a premium performance motorcycle in 150cc segment.
