    I think, they are being sold in Malaysia. No? You can search the internet, go to a book store or ask a motorcycle shop, maybe.

    I have gone many shops but they say .. CBR 150R is not included in malaysia :\

    It seems the older version of the CBR 150R is being sold in Malaysia, but seems the newest version is not. The CBR is being made in Thailand and they are exported from it to everywhere on the earth. So,you might expect the bike someday from Thailand. However, the CBR 250R is being sold in Malaysia. So, I imagine you could look at the figure of the bike.
