        The Honda Dio first found its way to the Philippines back in the 1990s in the form of imported secondhand units. Then powered by a tiny 50cc engine, the daily shuttle easily captured the hearts of Pinoy riders with its simplicity and functionality. Who could ever forget its high-pitched buzzing sound, which grew a bit more menacing when revved to the redline?

        In fact, many Dios ended up as stripped-down race machines because their engines were easy to modify and maintain. After a few years, though, the government tightened the rules on used motorbike importation, and before long we didn’t hear much more about the Dio.

        Now, Honda has unleashed the 2021 Honda Dio 110 in Japan. This time, it’s fitted with a bigger, more powerful 110cc single-cylinder, air-cooled mill that produces 7.6hp and 9Nm of torque. It features a stylish instrument panel which shows information like speed limit, distance to empty, side-stand alert, economy mode, and fuel level. Many of the exterior components are blacked out to give off an aggressive, stealthy appearance.

        Added features onboard include LED lights, engine immobilizer, USB charging port, and start-stop and keyless entry systems. The 18-liter underseat compartment can accommodate a full-face helmet, with enough space to spare for the riders personal belongings. Theres also a little cubby space at the front that can hold a 500ml bottle.

        Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and side-mounted rear shock absorbers. Stopping power, meanwhile, is provided by a single disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear.

        The new Dio 110 is offered in in four color schemes: Matt Galaxy Black Metallic, Descent Silver Metallic, Pearl Jasmine White, and Matt Stary Blue Metallic. Now, who wants to see this scooter here in the Philippines?
