The 2020 Honda Airblade 150 hits the ground running. It was only launched January 18, 2020 and there have thousands of inquiries and a few hundreds of reservations already, thats how hot this 150cc, 4 stroke, 12.9 horse power @ 8500 rpm, liquid cooled scooter impacted the riding community.
The launch was held at Metro Metro BGC attended by Honda Philippines executives and Airblade brand ambassadors, Coco Martin and Yassi Pressman.
"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 Airblade 150 with shared riding in mind. The comfort of the passenger is another top consideration in the minds of today's millenial customers, and the all new Airblade 150 is the bike that we believe will fulfill that need," said Honda Philippines, Inc. president, Mr. Susumu Mitsuishi.

The Airblade 150 has extra features like more fuel capacity, 4.4 liters with an amazing 47 kms per liter consumption. It also has a 22.7 liters of U box that can fit a full faced helmet and all the riders abubots. But what really impressed me are the electronic innovations, the Airblade 150 has keyless ignition system with a SMART key, a USB charging socket and lo and behold ... front ABS ??? ... on a 150cc scooter ? .... LUPET !!!!!!! All that for an affordable P109,000.
Can't wait to have this beauty in between my legs for an in depth test ride. The Airblade 150 will be available in dealers on March 2020.
