The mildly updated 2016 Hondra Dream Neo which was unveiled at the Auto Expo in February is now on sale at the existing price point of INR 49,070 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The improvements are mostly cosmetic.
The 110 cc commuter motorcycle which is positioned below the Dream Yuga and above the Dream CD 110 Deluxe feature new decal and color themes. The motorcycle is available in three color themes – Geny Grey Metallic, Imperial Red Metallic and Black with Blue decals. Other noteworthy enhancements include a chrome guard for the silencer and a lockable side cowl which gives access to a storage space for documents.
Rest of the package continues without any changes. Based on the brand’s commuter bike platform, the Dream Neo is powered by a 110 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which is paired with a 4-speed gearbox. The motor is tuned to deliver 8.25 bhp power at 7,500 rpm and 8.63 Nm torque at 5,500 rpm.
The 2016 Honda Dream Neo locks horns with the likes of Hero Passion Pro, TVS Star City and Bajaj Discover. The company would be hoping that the minor update would keep the product fresh.
HMSI finished the last fiscal with sales of 4.48 million units, thereby posting growth for 15th consecutive year in the Indian market. The export operations surpassed 2 lakh units for the first time.
