With Honda launch Winner X 2019, 150cc underbone segment in Vietnam has become more exciting and received much attention. Of course, one of the things you discuss the most is that the new Honda Winner X is attractive enough to compete with two fellow rivals, the Yamaha Exciter 150 and Suzuki Raider R150. To partly clarify this topic, I will quickly compare the parameters, equipped between 3 Japanese hand truck models in the article below. When I say it, I will not comment on the design but give it to you
First of all, talking about the selling price, the Winner X is now a few million dong more expensive than the Honda Winner 150 generation, the figure ranges from 45.99 to 49.49 million depending on the version. If compared to Exciter and Raider, Winner X's standard version has the most accessible price in the group. While Winner X ABS premium version in matte black (49.49 million) is located between Exciter 150 Monster Energy MotoGP (48.99 million) and Raider R150 FI Special (49.99 million).

If you think Winner X's price is a bit high, I will continue to talk about Honda's most expensive upgrade – ABS anti-lock braking system. Currently, besides Winner X, there is only one other model in the segment that costs less than 50 million and is equipped with ABS for front wheel drive, SYM SR 170. However, the hand grip of SYM is difficult to compete with the Japanese 3 I should only mention here, not to compare.
Winner's front disc brakes have ABS integration
Back with Winner X's ABS brakes, I found this is a very valuable safety equipment. Because no matter how good the driving skill is, you will still have situations where you need ABS to avoid the risk of losing the front wheel, leading to a poor vehicle. Left on the brake configuration, Winner, Exciter and Raider are quite similar when both front and rear wheels are used single disc brakes.

Next to the lamp system, Winner X is the only name with front / rear lights and turn signal lights using LED technology. Meanwhile, the spotlights on Yamaha Exciter 150 and Suzuki Raider R150 taillights are still Halogen ball types. Honda also added Winner X Passing button similar to Exciter, only Raider is not yet available.
In addition, there are 2 different points related to the new Winner lights. One is a cluster of lamps that have been moved down and arranged in the mask section instead of on the east-east side like Exciter or Raider. This type of lamp design, more or less, makes lighting less flexible when the vehicle is diverted like an old light cluster. Secondly, Honda has now removed the on / off switch on Winner X, you only need to turn on the light, the near light will be on. This, in my opinion, is quite positive, it has increased the ability to identify other vehicles during the daytime, while ensuring the driver does not forget to turn on the lights when it is dark.

In the dashboard area, the Honda Winner X is now the same as a friend when it comes to a digital display to display the revolutions, digital position, fuel level, Odo, Trip or time. According to personal feelings, I like the timepiece that Winner X shared with CBR150R compared to the timepiece of Exciter 150 and Raider R150. It looks more sporty and modern thanks to the red accent details, the more compact number layout.

Quick points through the remaining equipment, Exciter 150 is slightly more than 2 competitors in the button to turn off the engine and the car search function by the button. In addition, the brothers going to the Raider R150 will have to plug the key on the side of the vehicle to open the seat while the two models of Honda and Yamaha can be opened right at the lock.

Regarding the dimension parameters, the driver's seat height of Winner X is now 15mm higher, 795mm and equal to the Exciter 150. Meanwhile, the Raider R150 with characteristic hyper underbone design saddle is lower and narrower than 2 competitors. Besides, around the light of Winner also Honda lowered to 150 mm, quite similar to Exciter and Raider, not too different as before.

Because Honda didn't change the engine and gearbox for Winner X, so the comparison of the operation between these three models is not very new. At the top of the power index and power / weight ratio is still the Raider R150, Suzuki's model has more than 18 horsepower while weighing only 109 kg. Meanwhile, with DOHC engine block unchanged compared to previous life but now heavier weight, Winner X 2019 has a lower power / weight ratio than Exciter 150: 12.5 compared to nearly 13 horsepower / 100 kg.

In short, I think if you prioritize equipment and safety, you should familiarize yourself with the new Winner X style. For the "in the industry" you need stability to work, go to work. If you go out, you can still consider Exciter 150, or wait a while to get the next upgrade from Yamaha. . Finally, Raide R150 is definitely a model for you to promote speed rather than being useful for everyday travel.
