Honda customer Harjinder Nijran swears by The All-New CB150X’s reliable performance for adventure seekers like him.
Dads can be picky at times, especially with gifts that he feels will steal the show. They usually don’t ask for much, but can be quite discerning about what they receive.
So whether you’re looking for something for the man in your life or someone who’s currently on the lookout for a ride to match your zest for adventure, look no further than The All-New CB150X. This latest adventure from Honda Philippines, Inc., (HPI) the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, is considered the ultimate dad bike, perfect for thrilling adventures and rewarding weekend explorations.
A macho ride that ages well
Despite the occasional fashion blunder, every father wants to look good on the road. They dream of a ride that makes heads turn and their peers nod in respect. Drawing on the imposing adventure styling from the CB500X, The All-New CB150X gets the job done.
This new ride features muscular fairing, adventure-styled undercowl, a sturdy-looking bash plate, a tall windscreen, and a tapered handlebar and cockpit design. According to motorcycle enthusiast and businessman Harjinder Niran, even his young son is a fan of the macho design.
“Every day when I get home from work, my son would always tell me, ‘Papa, I want a ride on the new bike.’ Those words make me feel very happy and a proud dad, because I can see my son is a bike lover as well,” Nijran says. “I can visualize that someday, we will ride together, and that will be a precious moment!”
Combining comfort and performance
The All-New CB150X has a seat height of 817 mm and ground clearance of 181 mm—measurements that are just right for the average Filipino rider, even for dads.
“I like the upright position of the handlebar to give comfort to my arms during the long rides I usually do,” Niran says, who often sets out for adventures to destress, chasing sights of nature and breathing in the fresh air.
In terms of performance, The All-New CB150X is equipped with a 149cc, 4-stroke,4-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled, and PGM-FI engine, capable of producing 11.5kw @ 9,000rpm, and 13.8Nm @ 7,000rpm of torque. It’s an amount of power that riders have control of at all times, thanks to superior handling that also enables easy cornering and banking.
Peak fuel efficiency
Dads want to have fun without going overboard. This is an important consideration when it comes to the fuel efficiency of motorcycles. With a staggering 38km/L fuel consumption with a bigger 12L fuel tank capacity, The All-New CB150X makes for a fun yet economic ride.
“I use my The All-New CB150X as my everyday bike to travel around, giving me around 38 to 40 kms per liter average, good enough for city driving,” Narin says. “I also took it to the mountains of Sierra Madre, Marilaque, and Infanta, Quezon. I love the ride of The All-New CB150X: very smooth and comfortable.”
The All-New CB150X is available in Honda 3S dealerships nationwide with a suggested retail price of Php163,900. The ride comes in two colors: Valiant Red, and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic. The latter features an emblem and matte brown-colored engine cover, handlebar, and cast wheel, for an added boost of masculine appeal.
