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.
One of 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. NSR 150 SP Pro-Arm - 53K for full size

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.
The oil tank holds 1.5 liters and requires the removal of the rear tandem seat cushion to reach the lever on the bottom of the side to open up the oil tank. Seat cushion removed - 58K for full size

The bodywork of the SP is the same as the RR. The only difference being the Repsol colors. Now in Japan, two stroke motorcycles over 50 cc in displacement have been discontinued. Recently a few of these Thai SP models have been showing up in bike shops throughout Japan. Their price between 420,000 Yen to 430,000. NSR 150 SP - 73K for full size view

Do you have have or know of a nice NSR 150 SP link ?? Contact me please.



Please try to remember that the NSR150 SP is not officially sold in Japan, the country that I am living in now.
So do not complain to me about a lack of information since there are no performance parts for sale in Japan.
I would recommend Tyga Performance for pipes and more, My Website specializes in the NSR 250, 80 and 50.
