Honda launches CB150R streetfigter aka Trigger bike in India

HMSI as popularly known for Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India was all scheduled to launch CB150R motorcycle in India today. The Honda Streetfire CB150R retains the engine and cycle parts of the fully faired CBR150R, which means that is is powered by the same 150cc, DOHC, 4 valve, single cylinder-liquid cooled engine good for 13.8 Bhp of peak power at 8,500 rpm and 12.5 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox. The company claims the efficiency of 60 Kmpl for this bike.

It is equipped with a five speed manual gearbox that shifts in a 1-down and 4-up pattern, via a heel-and-toe shift lever. However, Honda offers an optional CBS system on the Honda CB Trigger CB150R. This makes the CB Trigger the first Indian 150cc motorcycle to feature the combi-braking system, a braking system that allows safer braking as both the front and rear brakes work in tandem during braking. HOnda CB150R features a 240 mm front disc brake and a 220mm rear disc brake.
