The Honda Dio is renowned for both its fashionable appearance and its fuel-efficient operation. Honda unveiled the 2023 Repsol Editions of the Hornet 2.0 and Dio 125 in honour of the forthcoming Bharat Grand Prix, despite the model not receiving any major updates recently

The Honda Dio has updated its tail and headlamp lamps position. The new headlamp is incredibly fashionable and has an LED that provides bright illumination for improved night vision. The scooter also has quirky graphics applied to the front and sides. 

It also has components that resemble carbon fibre, which gives it a stylish appearance. The Dio gets a sleek and stylish split grab rail on the back. In addition, the scooter features a chic muffler guard to shield the feet from the heat. Not to mention, Dio's seat is luxurious-feeling and comfortable.

Engine and Gearbox
