While most guys in the country lust for motorcycles, fast and aggressive, more often than not, at least in the urban setting, chances have it that the first two-wheeler that everyone gets their hands on as soon as they turn 18 is an automatic scooter. Scooters are usually the underdogs in the two-wheeler market though they are in great demand from every sort of buyer, from college kids to men and women of all ages. And there is no denying that the scooter that really rules the roost in India is the Honda Activa. But as good a scooter as the Activa is, it does lack panache. So for those who want a bit of flamboyance while keeping the Activa’s practicality, Honda has been offering another gem for quite a few years now – the Dio.

 While maintaining the Activa’s underpinnings, the Dio loses the heavy steel body and replaces it with a sleek plastic body which not only makes it look extremely euro-chic, but also makes it look like it’s doing 100km/h while standing still. So obviously this made the Dio a big hit with younger audiences. And with the Activa having gone through a major upgrade a couple of years back with a slightly increased capacity 109cc engine, a new Combi Brake System and some design alterations, it was high time that the Dio too went under the knife.Honda Dio Dlx Ex showroom price Rs.42,362(delhi).
