Honda never sold the CBR150R in the US, but at least two examples have somehow made its way to the States. This one has just 2 miles and it’s currently on display on the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.
Specs on this were harder than expect to find, but from what I can tell the 149cc single produces 10 horsepower and 9 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is 78 miles per hour. Per the seller, this example (VIN: NCB-150-0012200) probably has never had any fuel in the tank. Because of that, he/she has not tried to start or ride it to verify that it works, but I don’t think that matters because the seller could not get a title from the DOT as the bike “did not have the USA federal safety standard tag.” Basically, this is stuck being a display bike or a race bike, and I don’t think anyone’s going to want it to race with.
The seller claims to have spoken with an employee at Honda’s headquarters who said that this was a Repsol edition built specifically for Thailand. The seller hooked a new battery and says all the electrics work and it retains all the original warning labels in Thai.
