Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
At the 2017 Bangkok International Motor Show in March, Honda introduced the Honda 150SS Racer concept. Just months later, the company has its production version ready.
At a dealership conference in Thailand, the production version of the Honda 150SS Racer concept was teased. This model is reportedly called ‘Honda CB150F’, and Tmcblog.com has published its teaser images clicked at the conference. Note that the same name is used for an economical commuter sold in Pakistan too. The LED headlamp and seat design look largely unchanged from the concept version, but changes are immediately evident on looking at the rear.
A bigger and horizontal LED tail lamp has replaced the clear-lens LED tail lamp strip. Below the LED tail lamp, clear lens turn indicators appear on the sides, and further below, there’s a light reflector. The rear disc brake has also changed, but the exhaust looks very similar to that of the concept version.
Honda had invested over 6 million Baht (INR 11,548,880.38) in the R&D of the Honda 150SS Racer. At BIMS 2017, the company had confirmed that it will launch this model. The modern cafe racer was developed by Honda R&D Thailand Team, under the Street Sport Racing concept. There’s no word on the production version’s specifications. Thai media say that the launch of production Honda 150SS Racer may take place in about 3 months from now.
