New Honda Dream bike to launch by June 2014
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) have planned another premium commuter bike under the Dream range. This new bike will be launched in first half of the next fiscal, by June 2014. It will go a long way in affirming the fact that HMSI is among the leading sellers of motorcycles in the country.
The new Dream premium commuter bike in the making at HMSI could be a 109cc bike also seen on board Dream Yuva and Dream Neo in the form of a single cylinder, air cooled, four stroke engine offering peak power of 8.4 PS, reveals Zigwheels.
The new bike in the Dream range will receive a host of updates and features in the form of new body decals, alloy wheels, disc brakes and a state of the art instrument console, while it will sit on tubeless tyres. The new Dream bike will be launched by next fiscal and will be priced higher than both Dream Yuga and Neo which retails from INR 49,155 to INR 52,841.
At the recently concluded 2014 Auto Expo, HMSI also displayed its new Honda Activa 125 scooter. Though no launch dates have been revealed, it is predicted that Activa 125 scooter will enter the Indian bike market just after launch of the next motorbike while it will receive a 125cc single cylinder engine capable of 8.6 bhp peak power at 6500 rpm and 10.12 Nm torque at 5500 rpm.
