2020 Honda Dio BS6 Scooter launched

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has launched the updated Honda Dio which now meets the Bharat Stage VI (BS6) emission regulations. The new Honda Dio has been priced at Rs 59,990 and comes with a new design, and a long list of new features, and has a slightly longer wheelbase as well.

The new Honda Dio is also offered with 6 years' warranty - 3 years' standard warranty and 3 years' additional optional warranty.

The new Honda Dio is offered in two variants - Standard and Deluxe, in a total of seven new colours.

Mechanically, the new Honda Dio is now powered by the improved Bharat Stage VI compliant 110 cc engine with programmed fuel injection, and Honda Eco Technology (HET), powered by Honda's Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) system, along with slightly updated design and features.

Honda's Enhanced Smart Power system is said to optimise energy output by maximising efficient combustion and minimising friction. The engine is said to be smoother and more efficient, but maximum power has gone down slightly, with the new engine making 7.68 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 8.79 Nm of peak torque at 5,250 rpm.

The new Honda Dio also gets a fresh design language, with a new signature LED position lamp, a modern tail lamp design, split grab rails, a sharper logo and new body graphics. The full-digital speedometer gets a long list of information with three new real time informatics like range, which displays distance to empty readings, average fuel efficiency, as well as real time fuel efficiency.

The instrument console also gives out other details like total trip, clock and service due indicator.

The 2020 Honda Dio BS6 model is available in two variants - Standard and Deluxe. The Honda Dio Standard variant is priced at Rs 59,990 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) and is available in four colour options - Matte Axis Grey Metallic, Candy Jazzy Blue, Sports Red and Vibrant Orange.
