Honda Click 150i Pros

Design: The latest Click 150i is definitely the most good-looking one of all the generations. Inspiration was taken from Honda’s NSX sports-car, which explains its bold and striking design. It even has an aluminium end cap — a feature most commonly found on high-end big bikes. It has twin LED antler-shaped headlamps and position lights, LED tail-lamps, and LED turn signals. The Honda 150i specs also sport 3Dd emblems and come in a variety of exclusive color decals such as Anchor Gray, Metallic, Vivid Blue Blue Metallic, Nitric Orange, and Space Magenta Metallic.

Features: What makes the Click 150i especially attractive is the handful of features integrated in the bike. It has a full digital console for easy access to fuel levels and the speed metre while riding. It also has Honda’s signature smart key which includes keyless ignition, answer back technology, and an anti-theft alarm system. Most of these features can typically be found on more expensive maxi-scooters, so the 150i really gives you a bang for your buck when it comes to tech features.

Fuel efficiency: The 150i’s Start-Stop and fuel injection system keeps fuel economy at 52km/l. The engine automatically shuts off when the bike is idle for at least five seconds and starts up immediately when it’s ready to start moving again. This can help you save on gasoline costs.

Ride performance: The 150i has no can easily execute sharp turns and maneuvers thanks to its short 1,280 mm wheelbase. It has a smooth takeoff and still manages to remain relaxed even when accelerating. The Start-Stop feature also makes the balancing the scooter effortless, with the Park Brake Lock system ensuring that you won’t suddenly shoot off while idle. However, 150i’s stockiness is more suited for city driving.

Honda Click 150i Cons

Saddle: Despite the 150i’s skinny build, the saddle is wide and comfortable enough to accommodate two grown adults without making it feel cramped. The seat, however, is relatively high. This means you might have to stand on your tiptoes when stationary. The saddle compartment is 18 litres which, while could be bigger, is still enough to hold a full-face helmet.

Safety: While having numerous tech features, the 150i sadly lacks an automatic brake system (ABS), which is a standard safety feature found on virtually all vehicles and bikes. Should this have been paired with the Combi Brake System, it could have made for excellent safety ratings.
