HMSI President and CEO Mr. Keita Muramatsu launching the new Honda Livo ...

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. – the fastest growing major motorcycle brand in India unveiled its latest entry-level offering — the new 110cc LIVO.

The Honda LIVO comes in 4 colors – Athletic Blue Metallic, Pearl Amazing White, Sunset Brown Metallic & Black; and is available for sale in two variants Self-Drum-Alloy and Self-Disc-Alloy.

Mileage will 74 km per liter.

The bike is priced at Rs.52,989 for Self-Drum-Alloy; and Rs.55,489 for Self-Disc-Alloy (Ex-showroom, Delhi).

With Livo, Honda has gone for a contemporary and aggressive design unlike the rather sedate design of Shine, its existing offering in the commuter segment.

While the Shine was a step up from the rather boxy style of Hero Honda Splendor, the Livo takes it further. In terms of looks and style, the Livo is placed above Shine and below the Pulsar.

A combination of sharp headlight and detailed air duct shape, lend an aggressive and premium front-look to the new LIVO.

The dynamic tank shroud, a curved fuel tank, and black-alloy wheels give the new LIVO a sporty finish. The meter design is innovative while the side panel enhances LIVO’s youthful & modern personality.

A strong 2-piece designed modern muffler, followed by a fresh tail light & strong grab rail leaves a lasting impression on the onlookers, unlike any other motorcycle in the segment.

Advanced Technology ensures best combination of Power Performance and Mileage Powered by Honda Eco Technology (HET), the proven 110cc 4-stroke engine boasts of an improved combustion efficiency, which increases compression ratio allowing the New LIVO to deliver a class leading mileage of 74 kmpl.

The advanced Honda engine on this stylish motorcycle can be used to provide extra-thrust of power. According to the company, the bike has ‘Honda Intelligent Ignition Control System’ or HIICS which enables the engine to deliver power output as per load conditions.

Comfort & Convenience

Honda has designed the LIVO for the comfort of both the rider and the pillion irrespective of the road conditions.

“Because of its upright handle position, the rider can clock long distances at stretch without any strain. With a wider turning angle, the new LIVO is easy to maneuver in tight traffic conditions as well as narrow roads and lanes,” the company said.

The longer wheel base, and the 5-step adjustable rear suspension provide more stability on bad roads & at higher speeds. The increased ground clearance also allows it to comfortably tackle bad roads.

Considering the hazardous and uneven road-conditions in India, Honda has equipped the new LIVO with tubeless tyres, reducing the chances of immediate deflation in case of puncture.

During dense traffic requiring frequent gear shifts, full gear lever helps make riding convenient. The viscous filter does not need to be cleaned regularly and requires only to be replaced after 16000 kms. The battery is maintenance free and doesn’t require a top-up, invalidating the chances of leakage completely.

Speaking at the launch, Keita Muramatsu – President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd, said, “India is not only the World’s fastest growing economy but one of the youngest country in the world. These youth are aspirational & want to achieve their dreams with speed and self-esteem. This segment represents a sweet spot for us and Honda’s new motorcycle ‘LIVO’ will redefine their ‘Time to Live’. LIVO is the curtain raiser of Honda’s aggressive pace of new & exciting motorcycle models line up for India. Honda will deliver on the promise of 15 new products to our customers in India in 2015 and continue to surprise customers across all segments”

Y. S. Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales & Marketing, said: “LIVO is developed keeping in mind the very start of motorcycling – that is the 100-110cc displacement segment which is most often the first bike of majority of India. Honda’s LIVO is a perfect fit to fulfill the dreams of aspirational first time biker. It features one of the longest wheelbase in the segment and a higher ground clearance for practical and comfortable usage on all types of Indian roads. It’s sharp aerodynamic styling and 110cc Honda HET engine not only guarantees admiration but also ensures performance with economy.“
