The Suzuki Raider R150, known for its sporty design and powerful performance, is a popular choice among motorcycle riders in the Philippines. With its sleek appearance and impressive capabilities, the Raider R150 has become a symbol of style and speed on the roads.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How much are the Suzuki Raider R150 Carb and FI?

    The Raider R150 Carb is priced at P106,900, while the FI version retails for P119,900.
  • Is the FI version of the Raider R150 worth the extra cost compared to the carburetor version?

  • However, when it comes to choosing the right version of the Raider R150, there are two options to consider: the carburetor version and the fuel-injected (Fi) version. Let’s compare the two versions to see which Raider R150 is better.

    Design

    Both motorcycles feature distinct sporty looks, making them head-turners on the road.

    Both bikes have a wheelbase of 1,280 mm and a ground clearance of 150 mm, and are fitted with 17-inch tubeless tires.

    The Carb is equipped with a blue lens headlight and an analog digital cluster, while the Fi comes with an LED headlight and an upgraded digital panel.

    Engine

    The Raider R150 Carb relies on a carburetor to mix air and fuel before delivering it to the engine. This mechanical device has been a staple in motorcycles for years, working diligently to provide the necessary fuel-air mixture for combustion. 

    With its carbureted engine, riders can expect a responsive throttle and smooth acceleration, making it a joy to ride on both city streets and open highways.

    On the other hand, the Fi version takes things up a notch by ditching the carburetor and adopting a modern fuel injection system. This electronic marvel delivers fuel to the engine with greater precision and efficiency, resulting in improved performance, better fuel economy, and reduced emissions.

    With its fuel injection system, the Raider R150 Fi offers riders a more refined and responsive riding experience. The advanced fuel injection technology ensures smooth and consistent power delivery throughout the rev range. 

    Performance

    When it comes to acceleration and power, both the Carb and Fi versions of the Raider R150 pack a punch. The carburetor version offers quick throttle response and a raw, exhilarating feel, ideal for riders who crave a more traditional riding experience. On the other hand, the Fi version provides smoother power delivery and a more refined performance, making it perfect for riders who prioritize precision and efficiency.

    In terms of handling and control, both versions of the Raider R150 excel. The Carb, with its responsive throttle and lighter weight, offers nimble maneuverability that allows riders to tackle tight corners and navigate through traffic with ease. Meanwhile, the Fi version, with its advanced fuel injection system and improved braking, provides enhanced control and stability, inspiring confidence even at higher speeds.

    Colors and pricing

    The Raider R150 Carb is available in three colors: Black + Metallic Triton Blue, Celebration Red, and Titan Black. It comes with a lower price tag of only P106,900.

    On the other hand, the Fi version comes in five colors: Metallic Matte Stellar Blue, Candy Matte Bordeaux Red, Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray, Titan Black, and Pearl Bright Ivory. It has a higher price of P119,900 due to its advanced features.

    Final thoughts

    Choosing between the carburetor and Fi versions of the Raider R150 comes down to your personal preferences and priorities.

    If you are all about simplicity and lower upfront costs the Carb version might be your best bet. However, if you value advanced technology, the Fi version could be your dream ride. Whichever version you go for, remember, it is not just about the specs – it is about finding the bike that matches your riding style.
