The price of Honda Dio starts at Rs. 69,705 and goes upto Rs. 73,102. Honda Dio is offered in 2 variants – Drum BS6 and the top variant Dio DLX BS6 which comes at a price tag of Rs. 73,102.
Honda Dio Specifications
The Dio BS6 is powered by an all-new 109.51cc motor that is now fuel-injected compared to the previous engine’s carburettor. Power is down, torque is up, and the new motor pumps out 7.76PS at 8000rpm and 9Nm of peak torque at 4750 rpm — 0.16PS less 0.09Nm more than the BS4 model. It is silently brought to life by an ACG starter. For the first time, the Dio now features a telescopic fork up front as well as a 12-inch wheel. At the rear, you continue to get a 10-inch wheel suspended by a monoshock. Unfortunately, you don’t get the option of alloy wheels or disc brakes on any of the variants. Wheelbase has gone up by 22mm which should aid straight-line stability.
Honda Dio Design
The scooter sports similar design language as before with sharply creased body panels and a large apron-mounted headlight. There are minor changes, though, and the scooter now looks sharper and smarter than before. The new colour options also give the scooter a fresh lease of life, and the contrast between the colours of the body panels and the wheels works well.
Honda Dio Features
Honda has thrown in a host of new features on the Dio BS6. The most significant of the lot are fully-digital instrumentation and an external fuel-filler. It retains its LED headlight but now also gets an engine kill switch, side-stand cut-off and extra storage on the back of the apron.
