Honda CBR150R

 

 

Enthusiast Motorcycles up to 180cc:

Honda CBR150R:


Following on the lines of its elder sibling the CBR250R, the youngest CBR of them all, the CBR150R is surprisingly sportier for its size and very much in tune with the iconic CBR legacy. Quick, agile and energetic, the Honda CBR150R adds a lot of chutzpah to the premium 150cc segment with its rival-beating performance credentials and gorgeous styling but loses a few brownie points for its rather high pricing.

Hyosung GT250R

 

 

Hyosung GT250R:

The Hyosung GT250 does not have too many glitches and does exceedingly well when it comes to rewarding the rider with jollies, especially those who are looking for a 250cc no-nonsense super-sport, race-focused machine.
