Honda Livo has been spotted testing and its name has been confirmed by a badge within the instrument console. The premium 110 cc commuter will be positioned between Dream Yuga and CB Shine 125, to take on the likes of Mahindra Centuro, Hero Passion Pro, TVS Start City+, etc.
Touted to replace CB Twister, Livo features a new design with a proper bikini fairing, well accentuated fuel tank extensions, new side cowls, tailpiece and brake light. Twin hexagonal instrument pods and sporty silencer with a chrome insert round off the aesthetics aspect.
While the new premium commuter sports distinctive styling, it is expected to derive underpinnings from rest of Honda’s commuter range. The steel tubular diamond chassis is suspended by telescopic fork upfront and dual shock absorbers at the rear. While particular test mule is equipped with drum brakes at either end, a top-end variant with front disc is also expected to be on offer.
Like in CB Twister, the 110 cc air-cooled engine would be mated to 4-speed gearbox to produce 9 bhp and 8.97 Nm of torque but expect HET efficiency enhancing measures. With an estimated price range of INR 50,000-55,000 (ex-showroom), Honda Livo will complete the Japanese two wheeler giant’s 110 cc commuter lineup.
