Honda CBR 150R

The Honda CBR 150R has been available in international markets since the early half of the last decade. The bike launched in India in March 2012 and has since then become one of the popular motorcycles in the 150cc segment. The bike comes with a 149.4cc displacement 4-stroke engine that can deliver a max power of 13.1 kw and 12.66 Nm torque. Features on the CBR 150R include a liquid-cooled engine, a responsive PGM fuel injection technology that is responsive to changing conditions, and wide tubeless tyres.

Honda CBR 150R Mileage

If you are someone who is serious about the CBR 150R, you should not be worried much about the mileage given the fact that the bike is priced at over a lakh of rupees. Considering the fact that this is a sports bike, the mileage is expected to be pretty low and as far as I know, Honda has not announced a mileage for this bike. Please write in the comments if I am wrong here. Nevertheless, here is a review of the mileage delivered by Honda CBR 150R from other sources.

Customer Reviews

BikeDekho has reviewed the Honda CBR 150R on their website and according to their site, the bike can deliver a mileage of 40 kmpl. IamaBiker writes from their test drive that the bike can deliver an impressive 48 kmpl on the highways although on city roads, the fuel economy can drop to 40 kmpl. Similar on the review from MakeShout where the mileage has been pegged at between 35-40 kmpl.

In fact, the average mileage reported by several sources is consistent around the 35-40 kmpl mark. IndianAutosBlog reports 35 kmpl while the consensus on IndiaGarage is 40 kmpl fuel efficiency. However there are some reports where the tested mileage is vastly different. For example, TechnoAddiction and MyIndiaGuide both report a mileage of 50 kmpl. MaxAbout delivers the most balanced mileage review reporting 32 kmpl mileage on city roads while the highways mileage for the Honda CBR 150R is reported to be 45 kmpl.

There are 16 reviews for the Honda CBR 150R on MouthShut and the users have in all rated the bike 3/5 for fuel efficiency. Surprisingly from the reviews that have reported a mileage, the fuel consumption appears to be extremely good at between 45-50 kmpl. I have my doubts over these reports considering the bike segment the 150R belongs to, and so take these reviews with a pinch of salt.

Overall, should you go for this bike? First off, you should not be basing the performance of a sports bike from the barometer of fuel efficiency. In any case, do note that the bike offers pretty decent mileage for its category. The price is expensive but should be worth every paisa. Here is a snapshot of mileage reviews from various sources:

    Is there any chance of launching CBR 125r in India???

  3. utkarsh 8 October 2013 at 9:29 am Permalink

    As the price difference between 125r and 150r is less, therefore people will prefer 150r hence 125r will not be launched in india

    My CBR is giving a mileage of only around 25-28 kmpl. Please tell me what the problem is on my bike.

      Drive at a constant speed. More power = More speed = More fuel consumption. So change your riding style.
