2013 Honda CB150R Streetfire Unveiled in Indonesia

Share this Article

Honda‘s Indonesian affiliate Astra Honda Motor unveiled a new CB150R Streetfire at the Jakarta Motorcycle Show. At this point, the Streetfire is only destined for the Indonesia market as the naked version of the Honda CBR150R (which itself a smaller version of the CBR250R), but it does give us an idea of what a potential CB250R would look like, if Honda decides to produce one.

The Honda CB150R Streetfire is powered by the 150cc liquid-cooled  engine as the CBR150R. Honda claims an output of 17.6 hp at 10,500 rpm and 9.3 ft-lb. at 8500 rpm from the CBR150R, and the CB150R will likely have similar numbers.

While the CBR150R sports a large fairing, the CB150R exposes its engine and twin spar diamond trellis frame. The suspension is also the same as with the CBR150R, featuring a telescopic fork and rear linked suspension.

Don’t expect to see the CB150R Streetfire in North America however. It’s designed for the Asian market as a naked option to the CBR150R, while U.S. consumers will probably not be interested in anything smaller than the CBR250R. Putting the quarter-liter engine into the same chassis to make a CB250R might be a different story however, though it’s unlikely we’ll see that any time soon, with Honda expected to unveil its new CB500R, CBR500 and CB500X in a couple of weeks at the 2012 EICMA show.

Honda presented four versions of the CB150R at Jakarta, a black version, a white version, a Honda tricolor version and an orange version loaded with add-on accessories.

    When Honda sell Honda CB150R Streetfire in vietnam

  • Roko

    I wonder, could they really make this thing look even more boring. Impossible I’d say…. Does Honda care even to peek at what design Cagiva and Aprilia do for their small bikes?

  • John Jubo

    Whats the rims and tire size?Same like the fairing version?Look smaller in my view.Is it 2.50×17 100/80-17 3.50×17 130/70-17?

  • overbore

    no, that’s only use 80 (front) and 100 (rear), tubeless. Honda CB150R Streetfire comes to challange Yamaha Vixion (naked version from yamaha R15)

  • Wickidm

    Looks exactly like the suzuki inazuma 250 but with a fatter body, Probably made in exactly the same factory in china. The question is, If this is the case why does it take a long time for these model designs to reach US and europe considering the design is relatively widespread already across asia?

  • wong jowo

    Sama saja tk honda yamaha suzuki dst, yang penting bisa beli kagak? Semua desain di industri pasti akan saling contek mencontek. Samsung apple, bebek injeksi di indonesia honda dulu baru yamaha.
