Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India (HMSI) has launched a new Dio scooter with an 110cc 8 BHP (borrowed from 2nd generation Activa) motor that claims 15 per cent higher fuel efficiency than before (55 kmpl). It has been priced at Rs 42,362, ex-showroom Delhi and will be on sale by February end.
The new Dio has been given a revamp to make it look flashier, and sports a new headlight design, body panels and a new tail to go with it as well. The seat is now wider, apart from which the Dio also gets tubeless tyres. It also gets the Activa’s Combi Brake System.
“The increased convenience and comfortable riding position of New Dio will appeal to both style conscious young males and females,” N.K. Rattan, Vice President – Sales, Marketing & Corporate Affairs, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said.
