Delhi : In the Indian market, the Dio 125 has finally been introduced by Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India. There are two versions available: Standard and Smart. They cost 83,400 and 91,300 respectively. These are both ex-showroom prices. The scooter has a normal warranty of three years, but the owner can choose to extend it to ten years by purchasing the additional extended warranty.

One of the first sporting scooters on the Indian market was the Dio. The Grazia 125 and Activa 125 both utilise the same design language, while the new Dio 125 uses a more potent engine. The engine's maximum power production is 8.19 bhp, while its maximum torque output is 10.4 Nm. The rear wheels receive the power via a CVT automatic gearbox. Honda's eSP, automatic choke system, and idle start/stop features are also included in the engine.

A fully digital instrument cluster with the following features is available: tripmeter, clock, side-stand indicator, Eco indicator, average fuel economy, side-stand indicator, and service due indicator. Honda's H-Smart key, which has a lock modification that integrates five functions into a single rotary knob, is included with the Smart edition. A front disc brake and a rear drum brake are both responsible for stopping the vehicle. Additionally, alloy wheels with tubeless tyres are available.

The president and CEO of Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, Mr. Tsutsumu Otani, commented on the debut: "With the launch of the Honda Dio in 2002, HMSI introduced India with the concept of moto-scooter. It quickly became one of the most popular scooters in the nation thanks to its energising and aggressive appearance that was influenced by motorcycles and the practicality of a scooter. The Honda Dio 125 has been specifically created and developed in its brand-new 125cc form to satisfy the demands of youthful Indian buyers. Aside from its potent engine, the Dio 125 has an improved athletic look and cutting-edge technology, such as the widely praised Honda Smart Key*. Because of its superior ease compared to the competition, our consumers will have an unmatched ownership experience.
