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 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.

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 engine is now BS-IV compliant that now results in a slightly better fuel economy in comparison to the previous model.
The Honda Dio achieves a top speed of 83kmph and returns a claimed fuel economy of 60kmpl. The scooter also gets an easy electric starter for the convenience of the rider.
Braking and Handling

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
