Honda’s Indonesian affiliate company P.T. Astra Honda Motor has updated the company’s popular 150cc adventure bike, the Honda CRF150L, with new colour schemes. The bike is now available in two new shades: Extreme Green and Extreme White, in addition to the existing Extreme Red and Extreme Black. All colour variants now also get redesigned graphics. The bike starts from IDR 34,745,000, which is around Rs 1.83 lakh.
Of the four, the Extreme Green, in particular, looks properly rugged. The military-esque shade fuses really well with the bike’s go-anywhere demeanour. Even the new livery -- with grey and neon yellow highlights -- look out-and-out sporty. The new white-colour variant gets orange, black, and grey highlights, whereas the red-colour variant comes with blue and white highlights. The stealthy-looking black shade features red and grey highlights.
The new colour schemes aside, the motorcycle remains unchanged mechanically. It continues with the 149.15cc single-cylinder (linked to a 5-speed transmission) air-cooled fuel-injected engine, churning out 12.91PS at 8000rpm and 12.43Nm at 6500rpm. The motorcycle is built on a semi-double cradle frame suspended on a 37mm inverted front fork (with a generous 225mm travel) and a Prolink monoshock (with 207mm axle travel).

Staying true to its ADV genes, the CRF150L gets a large 21-inch spoke wheel up front and a smaller 18-inch unit at the rear, both wrapped with block pattern tyres. Braking is via 240mm front and 220mm rear petal discs without ABS.
Honda is unlikely to launch this motorcycle in India as it’ll be too expensive for the kit on offer. Moreover, its tall 869mm seat and the puny 7.2-litre fuel tank will not be practical for our market. Thankfully, Honda offers the CB200X here, a road-biased tourer based on the Hornet 2.0’s platform.
