Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has launched the Dream Neo daily commuter motorcycle. Part of Honda’s Dream series, the Neo is the manufacturer’s first motorcycle to come equipped with Honda Eco Technology (HET).
The motorcycle is launched in three variants – The base drum brakes/ spoke wheels/ kick start variant is priced at Rs 46,140, the drum/ alloy/ kick comes in at Rs 47,187, and the top-spec drum/ alloy with self start is priced at Rs 50,426. All prices are ex-showroom, Mumbai.
In terms of features, the 110cc commuter bike comes with an analogue speedometer and fuel gauge, a pass-light flasher, an 8-litre fuel tank, and a hinge-less fuel filler cap. The base model Dream Neo comes with 18-inch wire-spoke wheels while higher variants are available with six-spoke alloy wheels, in black.
The four-stroke, air-cooled and single-cylinder engine comes mated to a four-speed gearbox that is operated via a heel-and-toe shifter in an all-up pattern. The carbureted motorcycle makes 8.25bhp of maximum power at 7500rpm.
For suspension, the Neo uses telescopic front forks and a set of hydraulic rear shock absorbers, coupled with a rectangular section swingarm. Barring the base model Neo, other variants ride on tubeless tyres.
