THE design of the Honda RS150R has evolved further with a focus on sportier design and sleeker attribute with premium finishing.
In line with this concept, the rear fender has been redesigned to feature a sleeker brake light with independent placement of the signal light for better visual impact.
Aside from the distinctive design changes, the new RS150R received modern amenities for rider comfort. It now features a digital LCD speedometer panel to suit the overall sporty outlook.
This instrument cluster offers the rider a range of information characterised by a digital rev counter and a central speedometer display.
This feature subtly conveys the RS150R’s rider-focused character and performance potential.
“The RS150R delights the rider with the latest graphic stripe design, elevating the model sportiness design attribute to an all-new standard,” says Boon Siew Honda.
“It now adorns the Honda Trico colour (pix, above). It is available alongside the other three existing colours with an updated livery scheme – Pearl Magellanic Black, Pearl Nightfall Blue and the ever-popular Repsol Edition.”
As for the engine, Honda’s flagship kapchai continues to be powered by a liquid-cooled 149.2cc, four-valve DOHC engine able to produce 15.4hp at 9,000rpm and 13.6Nm of torque at 6,500rpm.
The engine is matched to a six-speed gearbox and manual clutch, with a chain final drive “for exceptional riding performance”.
