Weeks before the return of the Honda Dio in the Philippines, the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer had already launched a special version of the well-loved scooter.
The Dio Repsol runs on a 109.51cc fan-cooled four-stroke SI engine that pumps out 7.66hp at 8,000rpm and 9Nm of torque at 4,750rpm. Just like the standard model, its tubeless tires come with a front and rear mechanical drum brake system. The bigger front wheel is also equipped with telescopic suspension.
Obviously, the popular scoot is donning Repsol colors—from the racing-inspired graphics and Repsol Honda Colour Orange alloy wheels, to the muffler protector and split grab rail.
This limited Dio is also fitted with LED head and position lamps, a fully digital meter, and external fuel lid, underseat storage, and front pocket, as well as passing, engine start/stop, and multi-function switches.
The beloved bike boasts an ACG silent starter, which eliminates gear meshing noise and reduces maintenance cost; a Programmed Fuel Injection system that adjusts the air/fuel mixture; Enhanced Smart Power tech for less friction and better combustion; and a side-stand engine cutoff.
The 2021 Honda Dio Repsol is priced at 69,171 Indian rupee, or around P45,000 if ever it becomes available here in the country. One can only hope...
