June 10, 2001
is the Thai Honda NSR 150 SP. It comes standard in Repsol Racing colors.
The SP was built with winning the ASEAN Cup in mind as well as being the
ultimate 150 cc bike in Thailand plus other East Asian countries. Power
is up by 2.5 horsepower compared with the RR model. This bike is the King
of the Road in Thailand for 150 cc bikes.
the most noticeable differences between the SP and the RR are the rear
swingarm suspension. The SP has the cool looking PRO ARM similar to the
MC28 NSR 250. Plus the rear tire size is slightly larger. Also the chamber
and silencer have been revised for a improvement in performance while
not effecting emissions.

This bike is for real ! It's brakes and suspension do exactly what you
want them to do ! The sound of the engine and the pipe are true two stroke
happiness ! Top speed is nearly 200 km/h !! " The
actual top speed is much more closer to 180km/h. These were the comments
of the test rider.
