Honda’s famous 2-stroke NSR Racing Technology has proven its superiority in the World of Grand Prix racing over the past two decades, now it has been transferred onto the road with the introduction of the all new NSR150 SP.

The latest sports machine from Honda is a revelation for the Australian Motorcycle Industry; it is an introductory level machine featuring the sporting good looks of the famous Repsol Honda NSR in its traditional Repsol colours. This is a motorcycle that the Australian market has been waiting for.

The light weight and low seat height of the NSR SP will give riders of all levels of ability a feeling of confidence and satisfaction that only this type of motorcycle can. The NSR SP is a unique blend of sporting and aggressive good looks and user friendly simplicity.

The water-cooled 2-stroke 149cc power plant is easily started, and once kicked into life runs smoothly from idle through to maximum revs. The power delivery is spread evenly throughout rev range and the six-speed gearbox is light and easy to operate.

The full fairing provides good weather protection and adds to the aggressive good looks of the motorcycle. Race type dual seats give the rider a feeling of comfort and control and also add to the sporting image of the motorcycle.

Bristling with technology the Honda NSR SP has the proven Honda Pro arm rear swingarm, which allows for ease of maintenance unprecedented on an entry-level machine. Combined with the front suspension and perfectly balanced, powerful hydraulic brakes front and rear the NSR handles and stops like a true sports motorcycle.

The race replica, road going motorcycle has long been topping the charts in Australia, but with ever increasing costs they are becoming a little out of reach of the entry level motorcyclist. The Honda NSR SP not only looks great and goes even better, perhaps even more importantly, it has been priced such that the entry level buyer can afford it.

Hondas pro arm technology, from the world of Grand Prix racing was designed to maximise the efficiency of rear suspension for various types of road conditions and provide an ease of maintenance for the road rider.

This permits optimum comfort for both rider and pillion. The refined seating position offers enhanced comfort and ease of motorcycle control. The low seat height further enhances the riders feeling of control.

Specially designed radiator uses NATURAL THERMO SIPHON for maximum cooling efficiency. Water cooling also reduces mechanical noise and allows for maximum engine efficiency in all types of climatic conditions.

The large capacity fuel tank provides longer distance between fill-ups. There is no need for mixing oil into the fuel, as there is a separate oil reservoir.

Powerful & Clean; from the World of Grand Prix racing with environmentally friendly technology. The improved design of the 2-stroke, single cylinder, crankcase reed valve engine incorporates computerised digital ECU (Engine Control Unit) and H.E.C.S (Honda Evolutional Catalysing System) to reduce exhaust emissions.

Adjustable DUAL EXHAUST PORT RC VALVE SYSTEM The computerised ECU controls the RC Valve together with CDI for more efficient combustion. The Nickel Silicon Carbide barrel also reduces internal friction and helps engine efficiency.

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) of Honda's rigid twin tube frame concentrates reinforcement precisely into those areas carrying the majority of riding stresses, this ensures riding comfort and maximum stability.

Race oriented design of speedometer and centrally located tachometer give precise and clear readings, these, together with both an engine temperature and a fuel gauge complete the instrument panel. This gives an overall impression of quality and that “big-bike” look.

Providing exceptional rigidity and designed to withstand the forces of heavy braking they give the rider confident and stable handling when cornering.

Providing stability and a fast response over rough terrain and at the same time provides a comfortable feeling over various road conditions. The pro arm rear swingarm and monoshock suspension also easily cope with differing loads being carried on the motorcycle.

Compact and rigid dual piston calliper hydraulic brakes (front and rear) featuring 296mm diameter front disc, and 220mm diameter rear disc ensure powerful and controllable braking.

Honda Evolution Catalysing System (H.E.C.S) introduces the process of using a chemical catalyser within the exhaust system. The chemical reaction ensures that exhaust gasses are converted to less harmful, more environmentally friendly emissions.
