Looks like a cross between a CB300 and a scooter.

 

Does the Thai market really need another 150?

 

A light 400cc twin to fit between the CBR/Ninja300/R3 and the CBR500 and 650's could be nice.

Yes light and not stupidly expensive would be nice too

Recently I saw a  Honda CB650F and  Yamaha MSLAZ 150  parked next to each other 

virtually identical in size (not weight) 

thought perfect size for me...onto the Honda big wing page   288,000 baht  or  6400 UKP at todays horrible exchange rate...errm maybe I'll make do with my 150 for a bit longer ....

Ninja 400 @ ฿196K to ฿205K fits into that slot nicely.

 

But as far as the 150 class is concerned, I would take the Suzuki GSX-S150 over the MSlaz or the CBR for myself.

All of my previous Suzukis have been absolutely bullet-proof.

It's just a shame that Suzuki shops are not as easily found as Honda and Yamaha shops, particularly up here in the NE.

The CBR150 hasn't been updated since 2010.... Eight years.

 

Which is just crazy.

150cc is new big market Siam.

This Suzi looks very nice.

Best looking of the bunch IpHA.

Is price known?

But USD/beefy forks be way good.

//MSlaz//

& add ABS, way gooder.

//top CB150//.

;-)

I have a 10 year old CBR150 which I still love but feel it might be time for a new bike.  I've always been a fan of Suzuki as I was eight when Barry Sheene won the world championship on a Suzuki so my first bike in the UK was a DR650 which came from watching Kickstart on BBC.

I'm in Chiang Mai so I guess there must be a dealer somewhere.

I've been out of the country for a few months and just got back.  Are these bikes on the streets now?

I can recommend this Suzuki shop in Bangkok

http://www.motorcyclesbangkok.com/new.html

This is one of the very few Suzuki shops which are authorized sellers, part and service (see Suzuki WWW).

The boss Chatree speaks fluent English.

 

I bought my Raider 150 there about 4 years ago. I am very happy with their service and their prices.

Yeah, I have seen quite a few around Pattaya and Sri Racha. They are massively outnumbered by Yamaha R15's though. Thais often express concerns about Suzuki build quality and component quality saying they don't last. I don't know if these concerns are justified.
