Considering 110cc engine, Honda Dio is one of the finest bike, I use it for a daily travel of about 40mk. Though Honda claims a mileage of 55kmpl I have got up to 62kmpl. I always use premium petrol for my vehicle.I have gone for long distance drive twice upto 500km in a day. It comfortable reaches 70Kmph. It doesn't show any change in performance, but I would suggest to give intermittent rest after 2-3 hours riding.Best vehicle for every day use.Some people feel uncomfortable pillion seat, but the reason is the accessories, that block the footrest.Dio is very light weight and easy to balance vehicle, with big central light to give good illumination, but on dark roads. Headlight supplied by company is not bright enough.You have to take care for coarse roads, as the body is fiber/plastic. damages may be costly to repair.some shortcomings include, no pass light, weak headlight, fiber body About company service center, I am not that happy, since i noticed deteriorated performance after few of the services. but, it solely depends upon the service personnel performance, I would suggest changing oli, filters and battery that's more than enough.
Riding comfort is average. If you ride as pillion and you have below average height it's uncomfortable due to its pillon foot rest in an awkward position back pain is guaranteed. If you are an above average height person, congrats !!! you will get back pain too. Bad roads will be nightmare to you. Fuel efficiency is good.When you finish 1 year with Dio you will definitely come across suspension complaints , wobbly handle bar. If you travel alone this scooter will be awesome but with a pillion - not ok
Its the R version of Honda Activa lighter, quicker, agile and stiffer
Dio is a good scooter but honda is simply not updating their motorcycle but they r installing LED headlights,graphics,digital instrument cluster and nothing else...it has the same design,the same suspension(which is a decade old) and no disk brakes.Its too dated for this generation...Ntorq has better value and offers more!!!
Honda Dio is very good option for new riders which likes graphics and power at the same time.It is not as comfortable as it"s own brother Activa.The scooter gives a decent power and a great mileage.The ride quality could have been a bit better and making the seats a bit softer for Daily Commuting.Overall a very good option.
