    Honda has introduced a small but stylish commuter motorcycle, the Livo. We ride it through the city to see how it fares.

    Make : Honda
    Model : Livo

    Honda has been busy populating its line-up for the Indian market, and while it still has some newer products up its sleeve, it’s the mass-market offerings that have been flowing in fast and thick. With monsoon in full swing and Mumbai city roads packed like sardines in a can,we had the perfect challenge for the Livo.

    The Honda Livo is no plain Jane. Give it a glance, and you'll notice how the design breaks away from the image of typical commuter motorcycles. It has an angular and well-designed headlamp with faux scoops on either side, and a muscular side profile.The fuel tank is well-designed too, and has additional flanks on the side to add to the muscular looks. Graphics on the motorcycle have been kept to a bare minimum, though. The overall edginess in the design seems to follow a similar theme as the CB Twister, but has been toned down to widen its appeal.

    Astride the motorcycle, you see the easy-to-read instrument cluster, with analogue readouts displaying only essential information to the rider. Surrounds for the speedometer and fuel gauge are angular, and are in line with the overall design theme that Honda has used for the motorcycle. The handlebar's black, with the risers painted a shimmery black. At the rear, the pillion grabrails are black and angular too. The overall theme of the motorcycle is black, with the engine given an all-black treatment, black inserts, alloys and even a black exhaust pipe.
