The Honda 150SS Racer is expected to be launched in Thailand in a few weeks followed by other markets internationally
Honda 150SS Racer has been recently spied while being used in an ad shoot, the exact location is still unknown. For the uninitiated, it is a naked street bike which the Japanese bikemaker revealed at the 2016 Bangkok Motorcycle Show. Comparing it to Honda’s current lineup, the 150SS Racer is a concept representing next generation of the company’s products. The design of the motorcycle is futuristic incorporating components which all the Honda motorcycles are expected to come with in the coming days.
At the Bangkok Motorcycle Show, the Honda 150SS Racer was showcased as the neo-cafe racer concept, something on which they spent Rs. 1.6 crores to develop. This motorcycle is a glimpse of what Honda has in its books included in the chapters left pending for coming years. The components used on this bike are a notch higher than what we get to see on 150cc motorcycles today. It might make them expensive but way more efficient.
The photos acquired now show that the cycle parts are different from the concept signalling towards its production very soon. On the front, it is suspended by a pair of dazzling golden USD fork and petals disc, contrary to the round rotors on the concept. The swingarm is box type and narrow which will help in weight reduction and the tyres are held by 10-spoke alloy wheels. The rear section looks floating on a higher level boasting of a taillamp which may be the traditional pattern for all the upcoming bikes from Honda.
All in all, the Honda 150SS Racer is designed to intensely enthral the riders of coming generation. It is expected to be launched in Thailand in the coming few days. The response obtained there from the buyers will help Honda in making the decision of launching it in other countries. As for India, it is still uncertain whether it will reach our shores. Given the budget-conscious nature of Indian buyers, they might hesitate in spending a hefty amount on a 150cc motorcycle.
