After launching the sporty CBR 150R, geared at the enthusiasts, Honda has unleashed something for the mass market too with the new Dio scooter (click on more images to see the scooter) and the Deram Yuga motorcycle.

The Dio was one of the first scooters the bring more than just utility to the scooter market with its fixed headlamp, low-slung stance and sharp design, but lately it seemed like Honda neglected the Activa’s sporty looking sibling. The Activa got a complete revamp recently and now it’s the Dio’s turn. It gets the same 110 cc engine that powers the Activa which gives it a 10% increase in power, which now stands at a healthy 9 bhp. The engine itself has seen some changes with regards to the valvetrain and ancillaries to reduce emissions and in the process also increase the fuel economy. On the outside, the changes you’ll notice are the improved legroom at the front, tube-less tyres (a segment first!) and the Combi Brake system. The Combi Brake system applies both the front and rear brakes depending on traction conditions and braking force to bring the scooter to a quick and safe stop.


Marking Honda’s entry into the mass market segment is the launch of the 110cc bike the Dream Yuga. At first glance, you may mistake the bike for a Honda Shine, and you may not be too far off. The Dream Yuga comes with a 110 cc engine making 9 bhp. Honda claims that this bike will return a modest 72 kmpl fuel efficiency figure. It will be available in three variants each with a different combination of kick or self-starter and spoked or alloy wheels.

Nothing to crow about in styling, fuel economy or performance. Honda wanting to take on Hero Motors is a laugh if they continue like this
