Honda CBR 150 Review

Honda is also trying the strategy to conquer markets by introducing lite versions of superbikes.The success yamaha got when introducing R15,the stripped down version of R1 may be the inspiration behind the move.CBR250 is a similiar version of VFR which got international attention due to it's technical excellence and style has been the front runner of this trend.And now another CBR with a 150 cc engine.Only time will tell whether CBR150 will be a threat to Hero Karisma and R15.

Only the trained eye can find the difference between CBR150R and CBR250 on first glance.Y shaped headlamp, fairing, engine caul, tail lamp etc has been copied from CBR250.A way to distinguish the two is by checking the silencer.CBR150R has got the shorter one.It's design is in sporty style in aluminium finish.Another aspect is black coloured alloy wheels.The machine is available in four different graphics and colours.

Instrument panel is both digital and analog.Silver finishes have been avoided from the panel copied exactly from CBR250.Digital cluster that comes in orange backlit consists of speedometer, fuel guage,trip meter etc.Tachometer is in analog.The main defect in production is it's switches that are exactly stunner switches.Also kill switch has been removed.Other than the defects which came because of honda's cost cutting strategy, the vehicle is a better deal than other competing models.

Engine and Ride
149.4 Liquid cooled four stroke DOHC engine delivers 17.58 bhp power @ 10500 rpm.The highest torque is 12.66 Nm@ 8500 rpm.The motorcycle weighs 136 kilograms only.The sporty riding position has given racing feel of honda.Even though CBR150R has got 2 kg weight more than R15, it has better stability in city traffic and at high speeds.Pillion rider has also got no complaints.Tube time suspension and 190 mm road clearence make it indian road friendly.Six speed gear transmission and 1305 mm wheel base gives more stability at sharp bends.276mm, 220mm front,rear brakes works good.Wide MRF tubeless tires is used in this vehicle.CBR150R is available in standard and deluxe variants.The exshowroom prices of standard and deluxe models are 1.22 lakhs and 1.23 lakhs respectively.

Final Verdict
Honda CBR150R is a challenge to it's competing models because of it's style and power.Company offered mileage of 42 kmpl and trusted brand value of honda makes sure it succeed.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
