UPDATE: 2011 Honda CBR150R power and top speed figures released!

Update (26th October 2010):
The 2011 CBR150R photos you saw earlier in this post came from Thailand when their local media got their hands on the all new CBR150R around the Thailand Golf Circuit. The same journalists have now released info on the power and top speed claims of the new Honda entry level CBR. From what the journalists have come to find out, the CBR150R can manage a top speed of 160 km/h – that’s close to the Ninja 250R’s territory and higher than its immediate rival – the Yamaha YZF-R15. There is however no info provided whether this top speed was a speedo-indicated one or true speed tested through speciality equipment like the VBOX.

The other claim is that of the power output. According to what these journalists have found out, the 2011 CBR150R produces 19.5 hp (19.7 PS) @ 10,500RPM. If that claim is true, then the new CBR150R is up by 0.9hp (0.91PS) over the previous generation CBR150R, which produced 18.6hp (18.8PS) and 2.7PS more than the Yamaha YZF-R15 (17PS). There still no information on the CBR150R’s torque output. To read the rest of the specs of the CBR150R,
