Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India celebrates 18 years of India’s 1st moto-scooter with the launch of all new BS-VI Dio priced starting at - Rs. 59,990 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Speaking on the launch of BS-VI Dio, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Launched in 2002, Honda’s Dio merges the sporty aggressive looks of motorcycle with convenience of a scooter. With more than 33 lac happy customers, Dio is not just one of the highest selling scooters in the country but also the No.1 exported scooter from India. The new BS-VI Dio with its new sporty aggressive design and advanced technology will create new excitement among fun seeking youngsters. We have opened the bookings today at Honda 2Wheeler dealerships across India. The BS-VI Dio will start arriving at our network next week onwards and the deliveries will start thereafter.”

The BS-VI DIO comes with new design and a host of features offering latest technology with additional value to fun seeking young customers. The all new BS-VI Dio is developed with as many as 20 patent applications.

At the heart of BS-VI Dio ticks Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 110cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP). It starts the engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate current and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus, there are no gear meshing noises.

Offset Cylinder, compact weight crankshaft & optimized piston reduces overall engine friction. Optimized weight results in improved fuel efficiency.

Programmed Fuel Injection injects the right amount of fuel in cylinder based on specific engine data and constant feedback from the 6 intelligent sensors. It results in smooth and linear power output throughout.

Ltd. said, “Leading the BS-VI revolution, Honda was the first manufacturer to take a leap ahead in the industry as early as 6 months before the implementation.
