Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India launched its most affordable motorcycle, the CD 110 Dream priced at Rs. 41,100 (ex-showroom Delhi), It is Rs 5,000 cheaper than the Dream Neo and is Rs 7,000 lesser than the Dream Yuga. Honda claims that the mileage on actual city conditions will be in the region of 74 km/l.
The CD 110 Dream enjoys a class leading power output of 8.25bhp @ 7500rpm and torque of 8.63Nm @ 5500rpm. It comes in 3 colours -- Black with Red stripe, Black with Blue Stripe and Black with Grey stripe.
The CD 110 Dream looks like the Dream Neo with white alloy wheels, new stickering, tubeless tyres and maintenance free battery. Like the other bikes from the Dream series, the CD 110 Dream, too, does not come with a disc brake option.
This new motorcycle will be dispatched from mid-July and it will be available for sale across the regions by August.
HMSI launched the CD 110 Dream as a 110cc motorcycle was missing from their portfolio. This brings in more options in the rural market apart from the scooters. In the urban market, the automatic scooters have a market share of 52%. The Japanese manufacturer's gearless scooters hold 60% of Kerala's total market. HMSI has invested Rs 1000 crores this fiscal year.
There is some good news for enthusiasts; the CB 600 will be launched soon while the CBR 250R will get an upgrade.
