Honda Dio Latest Updates
Honda’s Dio has managed to sell over 30 lakh units since its launch in 2002. The youthful scooter has seen significant updates over the years. It managed to work quite well in foreign markets too, which has made the scooter Honda India’s highest exported product. The same reason is responsible for the scooter chalking up the latter 15 lakh units in just the past three years, a feat which took 11 years for the first 15 lakh units to be sold.
The Dio has been one of Honda’s most popular models for a long time now. Targeted at the youth, the Dio features a sporty and aggressive design language. Honda updated the scooter last year with a host of changes, including the addition of LED DRLs, all-LED headlamps and a 4-in-1 key slot with remote seat opener, derived from the Honda Grazia. Honda also offers the Dio in a Deluxe variant, which comes with golden pressed steel wheels and an all-digital instrument console with ECO mode to keep your throttle inputs in check. There are 8 colour options available, of which the brighter set - Orange, Blue, Yellow and Red - are available on the Standard variant. The Deluxe variant gets metallic shades, including Yellow, Green, Black and Grey.

Honda Dio Highlights
The Dio is powered by a 109.19cc air-cooled motor that makes 8.11PS @ 7000rpm and 8.91Nm of torque at 5500rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a variomatic transmission. Top speed is a claimed 83kmph. The frame is a tube-type underbone unit. Seat height is 765mm. Ground clearance of 158mm is generous and a seat height of 765mm means it should be accessible for most riders. The front suspension is a bottom-link unit while the rear utilizes a single hydraulic damper. The scooter has 10-inch wheels wrapped in tubeless tyres on both ends. It employs 130mm drum brakes on both wheels with Combi Brake System (CBS) as standard. Kerb weight is 103kg while fuel tank capacity is 5.3 litres.
Design and Features
The Dio features a moto-scooter design with a large headlamp and turn indicators integrated into the front apron. In place of where the headlamp is mounted on conventional scooters, it has LED DRLs. The tail lamp is a large one with integrated clear lens indicator. The Dio gets a two-tone paint scheme with graphics and is available in five colours. Features include Automatic Headlamp On (AHO), tubeless tyres and combi brake system. There is a mobile charging outlet in the underseat storage bay.
TVS Wego: Segment-first features including an all-digital instrument console and alloy wheels as standard, makes the Wego a more attractive alternative to the Honda Dio. The frugal engine, comfortable ride quality and the fact that you get a front disc brake for the same price as the Honda Dio Deluxe, makes the TVS Wego a value for money offering.
Yamaha Ray ZR: The Yamaha Ray ZR poses a youthful design with sharp design lines. Being a Yamaha it also gets well-engineered mechanicals. The Yamaha Ray ZR constitutes a fairly attractive package for college-goers. Being a Yamaha, the pep on offer is also addictive and features like alloy wheels and a front disc again make it a strong alternative to the Honda Dio. It’s also a more welcoming scooter in comparison to the Dio (whose handlebars hit the knees of tall riders while taking sharp turns), since riders of all shapes and sizes can ride it.
Suzuki Let’s: The Let’s is Suzuki’s answer to the strong competition here. It is a scooter with petite dimensions, which should make it more manageable for the fairer sex. It isn’t really feature-packed when compared to the competition, but it still comes across as a decently packaged scooter. Again, it is not meant for the taller set of riders as the handlebars will hit your knees while taking turns.
The Honda Dio has been around for a while but the added dash of modernity has given it some much needed freshness. However, it’s still lacking when it comes the mechanical components on offer, which TVS offers even on the standard version of the Wego.
