Honda has launched its third and what could probably be its last motorcycle of the Dream series for India. The Honda CD 110 Dream is available in one trim(kick/drum/alloy) priced at Rs 41,100 ex-Delhi, making it the most affordable two wheeler in the country from the Japanese manufacturer.¬†The CD 110 Dream is priced at Rs 5,000 below the Dream Neo and is Rs 7,000 cheaper than the Dream Yuga (ex-Delhi).
Powering the CD 110 is the tried and tested 110cc motor which makes 8.3PS of power at 7,500rpm and 8.63Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. The company‚Äôs HET technology enables the motorcycle to go 74kmpl (Honda’s internal riding cycle) before needing a refill.
As far as looks go, it does seem similar to the Dream Neo, perhaps more lithe, with new graphics, tubeless tyres, maintenance free battery, viscous air filter and white alloy wheels. As is the case with all Dream monikered motorcycles in the country, HMSI will not be offering a disc brake as an option.
The motorcycle will be on sale within a month‚Äôs time and will be available across Honda dealerships in the country. It will compete with the Hero HF-Deluxe and TVS Star City.
