Honda 150SS Racer Concept Revealed in Bangkok

Honda‘s Thai subsidiary presented a futuristic-looking cafe racer concept at the 2017 Bangkok Motor Show called the 150SS Racer.

Few technical details were provided as the 150SS Racer is likely only intended to be a design exercise rather than a harbinger for a production model. The engine is a 150cc Single, likely based on the powerplant of the CBR150R offered in Thailand. The wheels are carbon fiber discs which presents an interesting visual contrast with the solid brake rotors. The fenders are also formed of carbon fiber.

Visually, the concept looks a bit like a mashup between a Honda Grom and the Husqvarna Vitpilen. The stubby tail and underslung exhaust look neat while the sculpted tank and radiator shroud give it a premium feel. A large white space under the subframe and the transparent panels alongside the seat give the sense the 150SS Racer is very light weight, though Honda did not provide any info on the concept’s mass.

Cameras are mounted to the tail and the front of the instrument unit above the headlight, though it’s unclear what purpose they serve other than to say “hey, it’s got cameras!” A rear camera might make sense on a futuristic bike if it replaces the mirrors, but with nowhere to display the image, that isn’t the case on this concept.
