The peak torque stands at 12.73 Nm and the powertrain is linked with a five-speed transmission. The Honda CB150 Verza’s performance numbers and its retro appeal suggest that it could be on par with the newly launched Yamaha FZ-X in India. The Honda CB150 Verza is equipped with telescopic front forks and adjustable dual rear suspension.

In addition, it uses a front disc setup with a hydraulic system and a drum brake at the rear. The entry-level neo-retro motorcycle is available in three colours in the Indonesian market such as Bold Red, Macho Matte Black, and Masculine Black. Honda has long been expected to bring the CB150 series to India but nothing really came to fruition.

The chances of the Honda CB150 Verza reaching India are very slim as well. Honda recently introduced the CB350RS, a scrambler based on the H’ness CB350 and is sold through BigWing dealerships. It uses the same engine as the H’ness but has visual differences including the updated front and rear ends and a new tuck and roll seat.
