In the footsteps of the new VFR, and subsequent launches from Honda, the CBR 150R also has dual layered full body cowling, which Honda says improves aerodynamics and performance of the bike. CBR 150R also has the characteristic Y shaped Headlight, short pentagonal muffler and the taken for granted digital meter.

CBR 150R comes with Front & Rear Disc brakes, Mono-Suspension and wide front and rear tubeless tyres.
Advance O2 sensor ( closed loop fuel injection) and air inductor leads to low emissions from the bike says Honda.
CBR 150R will be available in 2 variants – Standard and Deluxe. The Standard variant will be available in 2 shades – Black with Pearl Sunbeam White and Sports Red with Pearl Sunbeam White.

Honda Dio for 2012
Ah, the most loved scooter in the country, probably. Motorcycle riders have for long made the mistake of disrespecting this little scooter and have had to ward off the fierce loyalists of the Dio.
Dio’s new frontal design expresses dynamic and youthful moto-scooter look through its sleek and aerodynamic wedge design says Honda. Other changes to the design are the sporty shaped integrated rear with a new tail lamp and 3D badges.
Matt Axis Grey Metallic is a fantastic color!
The New Dio has a 110cc engine that replaces the 102cc engine. This engine is has roller rocker arms, reduced valve spring load, reduced cooling fan diameter size and better stability of weight roller & load of pulley spring leading to reduce friction and thereby 15% more mileage than the previous Dio.
Honda Dio is the first automatic scooter in the Indian market to come with tubeless tyres. Honda’s new Combi-brake is a welcome addition. Wonder what it will do to stunters in the country who prefer the Dio over motorcycles.The leg space has also increased.
The new Dio will be available for sale from January 2012 end in five exotic colours – Sports Red, Matt Axis Grey Metallic, Pearl Sunbeam White, Candy Palm Green and Leblon Violet Metallic .
