Honda CB 190R – Nepal Live
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Syakar Trading Company, Honda’s authorised distributor in Nepal has launched the Honda CB 190R at the 2017 NADA Auto Show in the country.
The bike is available in two colour variants- Repsol and Red. The cheaper Red colour model is priced at NPR 5,99,000; while the Repsol colour variant costs NPR 6,14,000. The naked street-fighter motorcycle employs a 184.4cc single cylinder OHC engine with fuel injection. Coupled with a 5-speed transmission, the mill makes 15.68 bhp of maximum power at 8,000 rpm and 15.3 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm.
Design-wise, the motorcycle carries a mass-forward look, thanks to the muscular fuel tank with extensions on the sides. The bike gets an all LED lighting system, and a digital instrument cluster as well. An upside down front fork and a rear monoshock hold the diamond-type frame.
The bike comes to a halt using 276 mm front and 220 mm rear petal disc brakes. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 110-section front and 140-section rear tubeless tyres. The fat rear tyre gels well with the stubby exhaust and the overall street naked look of the bike. The CB 190R gets a 12-litre fuel tank, and the bike has a kerb weight of 140 kg. The bike is more expensive than its smaller sibling, the CB Hornet 160R by NPR 3,33,100.
