In a bid to gain more sales traction in the ASEAN market, PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) has launched the 110cc Honda Genio in Indonesia. Targeted at youngsters, the automatic scooter is powered by a new-generation eSP 110cc engine claimed to increase fuel efficiency, while producing optimum performance.
The Honda Genio is powered by the latest 110cc SOHC eSP engine with PGM-FI injection fuel system. It develops maximum power of 6.6 kW at 7500rpm and maximum torque of 9.3 Nm at 5500 rpm. The Genio has a maximum speed of 94kph.
Honda claims the Euro 3 Genio with the eSP engine technology is very fuel efficient. Based on the internal test using ECE R40 method, the fuel consumption of this model is 59.1 km/litre (ISS feature on) enabling it travel 248km in one tankful.
The ACG starter enables smooth ignition and is offered along with ISS (Idling Stop System).
The engine performance is supported by new frame eSAF technology from Honda which has been applied for the first time for a two-wheeled vehicle in Indonesia. This frame uses the latest production process such as press and laser welding process. The structure is developed to increase handling stability, so the Genio becomes easy to ride, light, and comfortable to manoeuvre. This new frame can even provide a more efficient space utilisation proven by the 14-litre luggage box and 42-litre fuel tank capacity.
