Honda Dio Expert Review
Due to the sporty styling of Honda Dio, this scooter is popular primarily amongst the youngsters. The company launched Dio in India over a decade back and it can be said India’s first moto scooter in real sense.
The Honda Dio is powered by the same 109cc engine that runs the company’s other scooters. The engine comes mated to an automatic gearbox and it churns out respective power and torque figures of 8bhp and 9Nm.
The Honda Dio gets 130mm drum brakes for braking that further come linked to the company’s Combi Braking System (CBS) for effective and better braking. The suspension system of the scooter comes with bottom link type unit up front along with spring loaded hydraulic shock absorbers for the rear.
The Honda Dio comes with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and also has a sporty instrument cluster. The overall design language is indeed sporty and for this reason, the scooter finds youngsters as its main buyers.
The 2017 Honda Dio is currently available at the dealerships at a price of Rs 49,200 (Ex showroom, Delhi). The sporty scooter can be picked from five impressive paint schemes. The Dio competes with the Yamaha Fascino, Hero Maestro Edge and TVS Jupiter in the segment.
Design and Features
The front section of Honda Dio gets an edgy headlamp unit that finds its placement at the apron rather than the usual front cowl. Honda launched the 2017 edition of the scooter with a BS-IV engine and some really attractive graphics that makes it stand out from the rest.
The all black theme of the scooter indeed offers it a bad boy image as against the traditional sober image of automatic scooters generally found in the Indian two-wheeler market. The new Honda Dio has overall body dimensions of 1781mm x 710mm x 1133mm (LxBxH) and has respective wheelbase and a minimum ground clearance of 1238mm and 158mm.
The scooter has been fitted with a 5.3 litre fuel tank and has a total kerb weight of 103 kgs. As far as the features go, the Honda Dio gets LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) at the front cowl along with a trendy instrument cluster. The Dio also receives a maintenance free battery that proves less hefty on the pocket.
Braking and Handling
The Honda Dio has been fitted with 130mm drum brakes at both ends. These further come linked to the company’s Combi Braking System (CBS) in order to ensure less chances of skidding.
The suspension system of the Honda Dio comprises of bottom link type unit up front along with spring assisted hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. The Honda Dio rides on 90/100 sized front and rear tyres that come mounted over 10 inch steel wheels. The ride quality of the Honda Dio is quite satisfactory and the scooter feels easy and quick to maneuver in the traffic.
Safety and Features
The Honda Dio comes with a powerful headlamp upfront that offers good illumination at nights. The scooter now comes enabled with Automatic Headlamp ON (AHO) facility due to which the headlight of the vehicle stays always ON whether it is day or night. The said feature has been made mandatory by the Government of India starting April 2017 to minimise the number of two wheeler fatalities. The scooter also gets 130mm drum brakes at both ends that offer a decent feedback and bite.
