Honda 150 2023 Model: Customers’ Expectations
Now, let’s discuss the expectations of customers from the Honda 150 2023 in Pakistan.
Improved Top Speed
It is among the much-discussed issues of the Honda CB 150F. Although it is a 150cc bike, its top speed is reported to go just 105 km/h. We always discourage high speeds and racing. But what is the company giving to people who are well equipped and take every precautionary measure?
Even Honda’s CG 125 has a higher top speed than this. So, the company must eradicate this issue now.
New Grab Rail / Carrier Rack Design
Grab Rail or carrier rack design is among the much-criticized elements of Honda 150’s design. Its sporty and modern look is appreciated but when we see the grab rail, its design looks old-fashioned. So, the company can introduce a modern carrier rack in Honda 150 2023.
Better Front Tyre
You will find many people complaining about the front tyre and its texture in Honda CB 150f. It is now time that this premium 150cc bike gets a better tyre just like Yamaha YBR 125G (Panther Trekker). The tyre must be useful in both city and off-road conditions to facilitate most customers.
Digital Instrument Cluster
Although the instrument cluster of CB 150 has many advanced features, it is still an analogue cluster. Honda is charging nearly 3.5 lac rupees for this bike. It can at least give a digital instrument cluster for its customers.
Reduced Spare Parts Price
Well! Spare parts of Honda CB 150F cost a lot. It is because most of them are not localized yet. It can be a good thing at the same time as the quality of parts is impressive. But on the other hand, you have to pay much more. The price is especially higher when we compare it with the cost of Suzuki GS 150 spare parts.
Improved Spare Parts Availability
Not only is the price of spare parts high but their availability is a big issue as well. Customers have to wait for specific spare parts to become available sometimes. So, this issue must be resolved now as the bike has been here for over 5 years now.
You must be wondering how there can be quality issues with CB 150F. Well, many customers reported that the CB 150F engine releases smoke through the exhaust after some time. Most people reported that it happens after the bike is driven 20,000 km.
New Alloy Rim Design
The design of Honda 150’s alloy rim is outdated now as it is the same design that was introduced 5 years ago. Now is the right time to upgrade it as customers need something new in terms of design.
Better Silencer / Exhaust Sound
The exhaust of the Honda 150 is more like a CG 125’s modified exhaust (talking about sound). Many people buy it due to its sporty looks. So, the exhaust sound can be a little sportier as compared to the conventional one it has.
Honda 150 2023 Price in Pakistan
Honda CB 150F price in Pakistan starts from Rs.353,900 (Red and Black) and ends at Rs.357,900 (Gray).
With the dollar rate lowering constantly now and fuel prices coming down, we can expect that the company will launch the Honda 150 2023 model at the same price with additional features.
Honda 150 2023 model is much anticipated for the 150cc bike lovers in Pakistan. Let’s see if the company launches the bike with the same old features or brings improvements as per the customers’ requirements mentioned above. If you don’t want to wait, you can buy Honda CB 150F existing models.
