The all-new Dio 125 Repsol Edition comes with a dual-tone colour combination of Ross White & Vibrant Orange. Its sporty front design with edgy LED headlamp and a sleek position lamp uplifts the style statement while the blacked-out dual tip muffler adds to the sporty DNA and produces an exhilarating exhaust note.

Modern tail lamp with split grab rail, wave disk brake along with orange alloy wheels and bold logo further accentuate the sporty character of the moto-scooter making it an irresistible choice for the young riders. The Dio 125’s fresh new graphics represent Honda’s rich racing legacy, and it is equipped with an intelligent fully digital instrument console along with Honda’s Smart Key.

At the heart of Honda’s smart and stylish Dio 125 lies a 123.92cc, 4 stroke, single-cylinder BSVI OBD2 compliant PGM-FI engine that develops 6.09 kW and 10.4 Nm. Making every ride a comfortable, safe and convenient experience, it gets Combi-Brake System (CBS) with Equaliser, a 12-inch front wheel with telescopic suspension and a 3-step adjustable rear suspension.

The all-new Hornet 2.0 Repsol Edition flaunts an aggressive design with cutting-edge graphics. It features an attractive dual-tone colour amalgamation of Ross White & Vibrant Orange with Repsol racing stripes on the body panels and alloy wheels. The Hornet 2.0’s forward leaning aerodynamic styling and bulky fuel tank exhibit dominance and a muscular road presence.

Styling is enhanced by an all-LED lighting system (LED headlamp, LED winkers & X-Shaped LED tail lamp) while the sporty split seat and key on tank placement amplifies its street fighter character. The advanced Fully Digital liquid crystal instrument panel displays a host of information to the rider and comes with 5 levels of customisable brightness for better visibility at day/night.

With a powerful 184.40cc, 4 stroke, single-cylinder BSVI OBD2 compliant PGM-FI engine that churns out 12.70 kW and 15.9 Nm, the Hornet 2.0 boasts thrilling performance and even sports a new assist slipper clutch which eases upshifts & manages rear wheel lock-up on hard down shifts while decelerating, thereby enhancing the rider’s safety.

To ensure utmost sense of control while taking on the streets, the Hornet 2.0 Repsol Edition is equipped with Dual Petal Disc Brakes with a single-channel ABS. The mono shock rear suspension helps in maintaining the center of gravity, thus providing supreme stability while cornering and an excellent riding experience.
