News about Honda New CBR 150 R (and New CBR 250 R as well) become hot issue in news portal including blogs and also social media ex. facebook and twitter.
There is a question, Why Honda change its platform, from Racing Style become Sport Touring Style?
Just my opinion, it’s a good idea from Honda. Maybe Honda try to make CBR 150 R market more globally. As we know, Sport Touring bike was more compatible for daily use. And today, there are more biker using their bike for daily use. Especially found in Developing Country like as Indonesia, Philiphines and others.
Usually, a Developing Country have a big problem about traffic, Jakarta as example. Road stuck found everyday, so many people exchange their transportation equipment to a motorbike. A Racing Style bike wasn’t comfort for this condition.
How about possibility to used CBR as Racing bike? For racing, a bike must be be modified. There is no standard bike in circuit. So it’s so easy for modificator and racing tuner to change it’s style from a Touring to a Racing Style. From many information, New CBR 15o R using the same engine and frame with old one. So! there is no matter about it.
