Honda LIVO- SELF- DRUM ALLOY
The Honda Livo is a commuter motorcycle which shares the lucrative 110cc segment with its sibling, the CB Shine. The bike has been targeted at urban and rural customers who need a stylish commuter motorcycle, which doesn’t compromise on fuel efficiency.
While the styling seems inspired by the CB Twister, the body panels Livo get a completely new design to give it a fresh look. The sculpted fuel tank gets aggressive fibre extensions while the bikini fairing around the headlamp gets an edgy shape. The entire bike, except for the fuel tank, panels, headlamp cowl, mirrors and the suspension springs gets a blacked-out theme, giving it dark undertones. The upright handle bar, positioning of the foot pegs and the long seat have been designed to minimise strain during commutes as well as long rides. The Livo comes with tubeless tyres and six-spoke alloy wheels as standard while a front disc brake is offered as an optional extra.
The Livo is built around a diamond frame borrowed from the CB Twister. Powering the Livo is the tried and tested 110cc four-stroke single-cylinder engine that comes with Honda Eco Technology (HET). The engine puts out 8.2bhp and 8.63Nm of torque through a four-speed transmission, and returns with a company claimed fuel efficiency of 74kmpl. The Livo rides on conventional telescopic front forks and spring loaded hydraulic rear suspension.
