Apart from the all new LED
headlamp and position lamp add, the Dio now comes with 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.
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 lakh exports milestone.”
Powering the Dio is Honda’s 110cc
HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine with a perfect balance between mileage and
power. 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.
The 2018 Dio is now available
in 9 colours and two variants- Standard & Deluxe. The standard trim is
offered in Vibrant Orange / Pearl Sports Yellow / Sports Red / Candy Jazzy Blue
/ Matte Axis Grey Metallic. The deluxe
variant is available in Dazzle Yellow Metallic / Matte Marshal Green Metallic /
Pearl Igneous Black / Matte Axis Grey Metallic.
