Honda Philippines raises the bar for the scooter segment with the introduction of the all-new Honda Airblade150. The automatic scooter promises to make urban riding fun with its power, technology, standout looks, and most importantly, with its ride comfort.
Powering the Airblade150 is a 150cc liquid-cooled SOHC engine. The engine produces 13 hp and 13.3 Nm of torque. A 125cc powerplant is also available for the motorcycle but pricing and specs have yet to be announced. The 150cc variant comes with a V-belt automatic type suspension at the front and a telescopic suspension at the rear. Stopping power comes from hydraulic discs with ABS at the front and a mechanical lead and trailing brake design at the rear.
For added convenience, Honda’s automatic scooter comes with an electrical ACG starter and a power socket for your charging needs. It has a 4.4-liter fuel tank and a 22.7-liter U-Box. The U-box can accommodate full-faced helmets and still have enough space for the rider’s personal belongings.
In Honda Philippines, we believe that the joy and freedom of mobility is best experienced with friends. That is why we conceptualized The All-New Airblade150 with shared riding in mind.
Mitsuishi continues by saying that the modern scooter prioritizes the comfort of the passenger, ideal for its target millennial audience. Keeping in line with its target market, the Japanese motorcycle also comes with features that make it one of the bikes to beat, such as a digital meter panel, a keyless ignition system, and a smart key. All of these add an element of convenience to the modern scooter.
The new Airblade150 comes in three available colors: Matte Galaxy Black Metallic, Candy Caribbean Blue Sea, and Candy Rosy Red. The motorcycle will be available at Honda dealerships with a suggested retail price of P109,000.
