In terms of suspension system the ExMotion also adopted updated suspension. Here front suspension is 41mm upside down (USD) telescopic fork type which is really rear in lower capacity bike of Honda. Whatsoever here the rear suspension is swing arm attached mono suspension. So Honda didn’t keep any corner to question its suspension system.
Honda CB150R ExMotion – Seating & Controlling
The seating position of ExMotion is sporty upright. As a café racer its riding is neither aggressive nor full upright but position is quite sporty and comfortable. The handle bar is a single piece pipe handle positioned in upright. In addition the seating & foot peg is positioned for very comfortable ride. This position is really suitable for both city and also stressful long ride.
The seat of ExMotion is very compact but of-course it designed with spacious and comfortable arrangement both for rider & pillion. The seat is split type where the rider seating is carved for better controllability and the pillion seat is flat & straight.
In terms of controlling café racers are constructed for easy & premium controlling. The ExMotion is a 123kg light weighted full naked bike. The 795mm of lower saddle height along with light weight allowed the bike for superb controlling both in city and highways.
But again there is a lack of a back support for the pillion though there are two grab notch under the seat. As a café racer Honda completely cut off its butt just after the pillion seat.

Honda CB150R ExMotion – Engine Feature
The concept model Honda 150SS showcased at Bangkok Motor Show 2017 with the old engine of Honda CBR150R. Hence that time enthusiast’s concentration wasn’t on the engine and its specification. But when the production version therefore CB150R EXMotion launched in market then people got it’s an all new engine fitted with new ExMotion.
According to A.P. Honda this engine block has never been used in any of the Honda bike previously. And more importantly this engine cylinder dimension doesn’t match with existing sports model of CBR150R.

Here the cylinder dimension completely different and its quite square engine. Even the stroke also doesn’t matches. Hence no way of matching the connecting rod and other related major parts. So this ExMotion got all new engine.
We are really surprised as Honda still hasn’t revealed the engine power and torque rating. But there is a rumor as that engine power can be around 20PS! So whatever the reason we expect there positivism is hidden. Not to be disappointed but there are some clue for being the engine powerful.
This square engine with significant compression ratio of 11.3:1 clearly shows the capability of the engine. And one thing is very much sure with capable wheel, braking system and suspension system Honda will never release a low powered engine with their new bike. Hence we are positive and hope for the test ride after releasing that machine in our land.
