Honda has unveiled a new neo-retro scrambler style motorcycle called 'CBF190TR'. The new product has been developed for China, and it is unlikely to reach India.
The Neo-sport Café theme from the Honda CB series is clearly evident on the new scrambler. Thus, you would find a spherical (LED) headlight, along with a brushed aluminium mask at the front. The round shape of the rearview mirrors further enhances the retro looks.
The cockpit comprises a digital instrument console. The ride-related data such as the fuel gauge, tachometer, speedometer, gear position indicator, odometer and a clock are neatly arranged on the round display. The telltale indicators and the toggle switches sit on the left side of the screen. On the left side of the console is a 5V2A USB charger.
The fuel tank gets a muscular look with pronounced knee recesses while the shrouds feature an asymmetric design. The left side shroud features an air-intake design, while the other gets a flat look. The dual-tone paint scheme on the fuel tank includes a matte black top-centre. Honda branding is visible through decals on the tank, while the side panels feature the CBF190TR badge.
The saddle has a single-piece, flat layout with a ribbed pattern for the seat cover. The tail section features a LED taillight that is accompanied by blinkers. Meanwhile, the rear number plate and its illuminator sit on the tyre hugger. Chrome highlights on the exhaust tip and the heatshield further accentuate the old-school looks of the CBF190TR. The scrambler persona of the motorcycle is emphasised with the use of knobby tyres and a skid plate for the engine.
The motorcycle, similar to the CB range of products such as CB300R, packs premium hardware such as inverted front forks and a monoshock suspension at the back to perform the shock absorption tasks. The anchoring department comprises petal-type disc brakes on both wheels. The engine specification on the CBF190TR includes a 184cc air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that pumps out 16 hp of peak power.
Meanwhile, the Honda CB300R is reporting positive sales performance in the Indian market. It used to cost INR 2.41 lakh* at launch, but now, it retails at INR 2.49 lakh*.
