Honda has launched the Hornet 2.0 and Dio with the Repsol edition multicolour liveries. This livery is inspired by the RC 213V MotoGP bike of Team Honda Racing. The Honda Repsol editon has been in demand ever since it had been there on the CBR 250 and its comeback might have got a lot of people excited! Here is all that you need to know.
Honda Hornet 2.0
The new sculpted shape of the Honda Hornet embraces the Repsol Honda Editon livery well. The red and black accents look great and they add a sporting touch. Also, there are no mechanical changes as the bike has been recently revised to 200 cc engine and so it does not need to have a mechanical change.
The Repsol Edition Hornet also gets a white belly pan which compliments the orange wheels and fuel tank. The Honda Repsol Edition gets a 184 cc air-cooled engine with a 5-speed gearbox mated to it. Also, the Honda Repsol Edition livery looks great with the golden USD forks at the front which are first in this segment.
Hornet Repsol Editon has been priced at Rs 1,28,351. The Standard Hornet comes at a price of Rs 1,26,351 and this Rs 2000 increase is not bad for a special stickering.
Honda Dio Repsol Edition
Honda Dio is the Activa for the youth and gauging that Honda has offered it the Honda Repsol Editon livery. This too gets the white and orange graphics along with the Repsol branding on some panels. The wheels and the grabrails are finished in red which gives the bike an extensive feel.
No mechanical changes have been made to this scooter. It still uses the same engine as before with a CVT transmission. The features are also basic and Honda offers only CBS for safer braking. The Honda Dio Repsol Edition comes at a price of Rs 69,757 which is about Rs 2,500 more than the DLX variant. This too is a good deal looking at the fact that the last time Honda had this on the CBR it was a limited production model. This time Honda has not declared anything about the number of units that are going to be produced.
