Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has announced that they will officially launch their first proper mass-market motorcycle for the Indian market on May 15th. Called the Dream Yuga, this motorcycle is the latest in a long line of Honda ‘Dream’-badged motorcycles that have provided affordable personal transportation to the masses since the launch of the Dream D in 1949 by Soichiro Honda.
The Dream Yuga is powered by an 110cc single-cylinder Honda motor that makes 9 BHP @ 7500 RPM. Honda says the Dream Yuga can deliver upto 72 kpl.
The styling is not unlike the Shine and the Dream Yuga comes equipped with a longer seat, full gear lever and full chain case, to appeal to the prospective commuter clientele. Additionally, it comes with a Honda ‘Tuff-Up’ tube – a first in this price segment – along with viscous air filter and a maintenance-free battery. Honda also promises good ride quality along with a frame that will stand up to difficult terrain.
Electric starter will be on offer along with five colour options. The price will be declared on 15th May 2012.
