To commemorate Honda Livo’s first anniversary, Honda has introduced two new colours for the motorcycle.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is celebrating the first anniversary commuter segment motorcycle, Livo. Having sold 2.5 lakh units of the motorcycle in that duration, the company has now launched two new colours for the motorcycle – Imperial Red Metallic and Matter Axis Gray Metallic. Honda currently offers in two variants namely, Disc (front-brake disc) and Drum.
Mechanically, the motorcycle is unchanged, meaning it’s powered by the same 4 stroke, air-cooled 109.19cc, single-cylinder engine that develops 8.2bhp of maximum power at 7,500rpm and 8.63Nm of peak torque at 5,500rpm. The engine is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Y. S. Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, said, “In the past 12 months, the Livo successfully went against the wind and outperformed, while the 100-110cc segment was under stress and faced a negative growth. With 2.5 lakh units sold in a year, Livo is now Honda’s best-selling motorcycle in the segment & the new exciting color options will further enhance Livo’s sporty character and youth appeal.”
Sales wise, Honda continues to dominate the Indian two-wheeler industry. The company registered its best ever monthly sales in India in July 2016, selling over 4.5 lakh units (including exports). Of the total units sold, scooters sales accounted for over 3 lakh units alone. Its motorcycle sales were up by 7 per cent last month with Honda selling 1.20 lakh units.
