Sorry everything is in Thai language, currently all we know about the the future of Honda motorcycles in Thailand is what the CEO said, "before the end of 2009 Honda Thailand will only sell PGM-FI motorcycles".
We have no idea if this means that the Honda Phantom gets a update or moves out of production. Before Honda had of course the edge over other manufacturers, it was the only 200cc, but now that the Thai government changed the engine displacement rule to 250cc, it is expected that more competition is coming.
For example Tiger Motorcycles offer a Tiger Boxer 250 RS, which is a much more powerful motorcycle then the Honda Phantom, and it is a sweetness in cornering. The Honda Phantom can sometimes be a bit dangerous with higher speeds in corners.

Honda uses programmable or as they call it PGM-Fi, which still uses a throttle body, so it is not Direct Fuel injection. Direct Fuel injection is something we see in diesel engines where the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber.
