The matter came to light during the world motorcycle exhibition Bangkok International Motor Show 2017. It featured a new compact motorcycle Honda 150 SS.
The Fight For Leadership In The Mini Racing
As noted by the manufacturers, the name of the bike hints at a single-cylinder engine with a capacity of 150 kW/L. This, in turn, is more than currently motorcycle competitor MSX125 Grom has. In fact, the skeleton and technical stuffing of the Honda 150 SS Racer really can resemble the unit of the company The Honda Grom, because the manufacturers worked on the basis of the already existing model.
However, unlike other Honda motorcycles, though engine configuration and overall shape of the Honda 150 SS Racer mini-bike have similar analogues, but its unique conceptuality is just beginning. Firstly, being a mini-bike, the new model has too large wheels, a strong and wide frame. Secondly, the bike looks quite aggressive with a new body kit design and a classic semi circle headlight. Thirdly, the mini-bike engine is in a more upright position, and the link rods are adjusted too low for the driver's hard position.
Another important feature of the mini-bike is the fairly solid rotors and a cool side exhaust system. Therefore, a motorcyclist, depending on the weight, can reach a maximum speed of 90 km / h. And the fact that the Honda 150 SS Racer is water-cooled, provides more engine power than the MSX125 Grom has. As a result, the mini-bike engine will produce up to 10 horsepower at 7000 rpm with a maximum torque of 8 N.m at 5500 rpm.
