Honda India today officially announced availability of 2018 Honda Dio across all dealerships. Offering more value to customers, Dio will also be available in a new deluxe variant. Honda’s LED promise now extends to Dio with all new LED headlamp and position lamp add to the distinct bold front image of the moto-scooter. Adding convenience is a 4-in-1 lock with Seat Opener Switch, front hook and retractable rear hook. The moto-scooter is now fitted with metal muffler protector. In addition to the standard features, the deluxe variant gains a new fully digital meter (with 3 Step Eco Speed Indicator & service due indicator) for efficient riding. Adding more to the premium appeal are first in class signature gold rims and trendy colour options.
Speaking on the availability of 2018 Honda Dio, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Taking ahead the 15-year legacy of Dio, the 2018 avatar is available in 2 variants. More youthful than ever – with stylish new looks, new digital meter, 3 Step Eco Speed Indicator and Service Due Indicator, new Dio raises the bar even further. Dio is also the largest exported scooter from India and has crossed 5 lac exports milestone. The new world is all yours, when you’re Dioíng it the new way”
Powering the Dio is Honda’s trusted 110cc HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine with a perfect balance between mileage and power, but there are no changes in specifications. The engine promises improved combustion, reduced friction and better cooling to bring out best performance. Customers can also get an optional mobile charging socket to charge their smartphones on the go.
Dio comes equipped with Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer technology as standard. The unique equalizer in Honda’s advanced Combi Brake System (CBS) distributes braking force between front and rear wheels simultaneously, resulting in reduced braking distance & improved balance compared to conventional braking.
Would have loved to see telescopic front forks though.
