The new 110cc bike from Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is the first all-new product to be launched this year and will replace the Honda CB Twister. The Honda Livo will retail for Rs 52,989 and will be available with a front disc brake variant as well
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has launched an all-new 110cc premium commuter motorcycle Honda Livo for Rs 52,989 for the drum brake version and Rs 55,489 for the disc brake version (ex-showroom Delhi). The Livo is Honda's ninth product launch this year. The Livo will replace the CB Twister.
The Honda Livo gets an all-new design with a sharp headlight, sculpted fuel tank with tank shroud, alloy wheels, hexagonal twin pod instrument cluster with analog speedometer and fuel gauge.
The Livo’s design takes inspiration from the existing Dream series commuter motorcycles as well as the Honda CB Unicorn 160. YS Guleria, Senior VP, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said, "Livo is developed keeping in mind the very start of motorcycling - that the 100-110cc displacement segment which is most often the first bike of the majority of India."
The angular headlight and the sharp tank extensions assert the aggressive and premium styling of the Livo, as well as the chrome exhaust heat shield and the red suspension springs on the rear shocks. Although the engine is the same as the Dream series, it's mounted on an all-new frame on the Livo.
The Livo employs the same heart as the Dream series bikes – a 110cc single cylinder, four stroke engine that makes 8.36PS of power and 8.63Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a four-speed gearbox, while suspension consists of telescopic front fork and hydraulic twin shocks at the rear.
Braking duties are handled by drums both front and rear, but a front disc is available as an option. Honda says that the new engine boasts of an improved combustion efficiency, which increases compression ratio, allowing the Livo to deliver a class leading mileage of 74kmpl.
The Honda Livo will be available in four colours - metallic blue, pearl white, metallic brown and black. Honda says the 100-110cc segment makes up for almost 42 per cent sales of the entire motorcycle market in India and with the Livo, the company intends to target the aspirational 100-110cc buyer, who is looking for a frugal commuter with premium looks yet at an attractive price.
Although there are no body graphics on the standard variant of the Livo, HMSI will provide an additional accessory graphics pack, although prices of the graphics accessory pack have not been announced yet. The Honda Livo will compete against the likes of Hero Passion XPro, Mahindra Centuro and TVS Star City+ in the commuter motorcycle segment.
