Awalnya James Bons begitu antusia smengikuti halaman demi halaman artikel di MotorBeam tentang CBR 150 vs R 15 yang begitu nampak fair di tulisan tersebut. Beberapa sisi mengusung supperioritas CBR 150 dibandi si R 15. Ya dari tenaga kan bisa dilihat :
“Both the CBR150R and R15, come with the 150cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 4-valve engines and this is where the similarities end. While the R15 comes with an SOHC engine, the CBR150R comes with a DOHC unit. This is the sole reason which makes these bikes poles apart. The R15 produces 17 PS of power at 8000 RPM and 15 Nm Of torque at 7500 RPM which you might think is pretty high in the revv range. The CBR150R produces a power of 18 PS at a whooping 10,500 RPM and a low 12.66 Nm of torque at 8500 RPM, which on paper makes the CBR150R slower than the R15 because they weigh almost the same and power comes at very high RPM.”
Sementara dari Harga jelas R 15 Lebih murah:
“While the Yamaha R15 is priced at Rs. 1.35 lakhs, the Honda CBR150R is priced at Rs. 1.55 lakhs (all prices on-road, Mumbai). Yet it’s difficult to choose either one of them.”
Namun setelah beberapa saat baca kok tiba-tba muncul artikel baru di motor beam,lalu di bike decho lalu di laman atau warung india lain tentang recallCBR250. Alamak begitu membahana ternyata berita ini di India kini. Pasalnya ini adalah recall kali ke 2 CBR 250 India setalah bebereapa saat lalu juga recall karena kualitas plastik dan baut yang kurang baik. Dalam lamannya sampai0sampai Bike Decho mengatakan hal itu:
“It is a well known fact that the CBR250R is one of the most advanced bikes available in India, but the bike has been facing issues since its inception. Most of the problems arise due to the poor material quality. Honda CBR250Rmotorcycles have already faced a recall in initial phases to fix problems like poor plastic quality and paint peeling issues. However, the later bikes have got better plastic and paint quality.”
“As above mentioned, the latest recall is to fix the front brakes of the standard variant of the CBR250R, the company said that the brakes of the bike can lead to failure in some certain conditions and Honda will replace the master cylinder of the front brake through this recall. Honda has introduced a service campaign on its website, where the respective owners can check whether their bike come under this recall or not. So, if you owned a Honda CBR250R Non-ABS motorcycle manufactured between March 2011 and September 2012, go and get your bike fixed.”
