Honda has launched the BS6 version of the Livo in two variants – Drum and Disc. Prices start at Rs 70,056 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and that means it's gotten expensive by nearly Rs 10,000 as compared to the BS4 version.
Honda two-wheelers has just launched the BS6 version of its 110cc commuter, the Livo. Available in two variants – Drum and Disc – the motorcycle's price starts from Rs 70,056 for the drum variant (ex-showroom, Delhi). The price of the disc variant isn’t out yet, but expect it to command a premium of close to Rs 2,000 – Rs 2,500 over the drum-brake variant.
With the new pricing, the Livo BS6 has gotten dearer by around Rs 10,000 than the outgoing BS4 version. Not only that, but it is also a lot more expensive than CD 110 Dream STD (Rs 64,505), which shares the same engine. In fact, even the base variant of the Shine BS6 (Rs 67,857), which features a 125cc engine, is priced lower than the base Livo BS6.
However, in Livo’s defence, it has got a few design updates as well as some new features. It gets new paint schemes and a redesigned tank, headlight cowl, and taillamps. There’s a new part digital, part analogue instrument cluster, and it now also gets an engine kill switch. Among other new bits, the headlamp now runs on DC supply, and the bike has a longer seat for more comfort.
The engine is the same 110cc single-cylinder unit as before, but it now features fuel injection and develops 8.7bhp and 9.3Nm of torque. It comes paired to a 4-speed gearbox. The bike also gets Honda’s ACG silent starter motor, which helps crank the engine in a smooth manner. The disc version gets a 240mm front disc and 130mm drum at the rear, while the drum version gets 130mm drums on both wheels. The combined braking system is standard in both.
