Honda Streetfire revealed

Or, ‘How to make a 150cc single look interesting’

Speak loudly and carry a small stick

HONDA has revealed its new CB150R Streetfire in Jakarta – and for a bike aimed squarely at markets like Indonesia it's surprisingly attractive.

Not as attractive as the modified versions that the firm displayed alongside the new model, though, which included this upside-down-forked, radical-braked, slick-shod special that looks like it should be powered by at least a 1000cc four rather than a 150cc single.

While the CB150R isn't likely to appear over here, the chassis is near-identical to that of the CBR250R, sparking speculation that we could be on the verge of getting a similar-looking CB250R naked bike.

It does look good, but when are we going to be given front mudguards again? What on earth is that thing guarding!?

it is a hideous bike!!
like something a garage builder attemps on his first go!
Look at the pathetic frame design, the engine didnt fit nicely so they had to bold on an extra bit of subframe to suspend it properly!
...disgusting bike, leave it in indonesia!
