The last scooter in the Honda’s arsenal to get the 110cc heart is the Dio, however, Honda has done it in some style. Dio has been completely refreshed and gets the deserving bigger engine along with more power and some segment first features.

  • Brand new design – The sexy motoscooter gets sexier with completely refreshed design which is more muscular (unisexual).
  • A premium 3D emblem
  • Engine – The new Dio is powered by a 110cc engine which produces 9 bhp of power output which is more than the Activa (by 1 Bhp) and even the 125cc Suzuki Access (by ~0.5 bhp). Comparing it with the earlier variant this is a 10% increase.
  • Promised 15% increase in fuel efficiency.
  • Becomes the first automatic scooter to come loaded with Tubeless tyres – very useful change.
  • Comes with the Honda’s Combi brake feature

  • Increased leg room
  • Maintenance Free battery
  • Viscos Air filter
  • 18 liter under seat luggage box.
  • Available on sale from January 2012
  • Five color options: Sports Red, Matt Axis Grey metallic, Pearl Sunbeam White, Candy Palm Green and Leblon Violet metallic.
  • No mention about price.

I am itching to get my hands on this one. Till then feast on the pics and do leave your comments… – Saad Khan

    Looks too good. Nice design. Refreshed and fantastic, I expect the price to be around 58k. Lets wait and watch for the pricing

    If the price is not too high, looks like it is time to sell my old Dio and go for this. 🙂 Loving it!!

  • vivek

    its karisma muffler on dio!

    the sad part is that they have not brought the laatest technology which they unvailed ( Engine) in Japan.

    sad Japz think idians dont require the latest tech !!

  • $haggy

    Actually, the Japs know that Indians want everything on their machines but won’t be ready to pay for it!! 🙂

    • meckenzie

      Absolutely correct..people here asks only two things..kitne ki hai n kitna deti hai

  • true

    Looks good, but that is all. This is missing a lot of important hardware upgrades.

    Where is the new 125cc engine?

    Still old-technology front shock absorbers. Why no telescopic front shock absorbers? Aviator, Access, Wego. and Rodeo have telescopic front shock absorbers.

    Still old small 10-inch wheels. Why no bigger 12-inch wheels? 12-inch wheels give better handling? Aviator has 12-inch wheel only in front. Wego has 12-inch wheels at both front and rear.

    Why no front disc brake?

  • FASI

    Its so cool

  • Yila

    Still no disc brake on Honda scooters? Shame on Honda! Still no telescopic fork on a powerful scooter like this? Again shame on Honda! Why is Honda treating its Indian customers at a lower grade than its customers of other countries?

  • Dinesh

    The only thing I hate about dio is its head light been given on the body rather than to the handle which is a prob when turning in junctions .

  • Dinesh shrestha

    When it comes in nepal?


    Not so changing from old to new dio.his head light are not at properly place. not so good.



  • Abraham Cherian

    Honda should have brought Vision 110 scooter instead of upgrading Dio. Now it will cost

    Rs.3000/- more. Very sad to note that Honda products are getting very expensive.

  • Prashantha.S
