Expanding its Dream series in the country, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) announced the launch of a new bike dubbed CD 110 Dream in India.
Priced at ₹41,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Honda CD 110 Dream is Honda's cheapest motorcycle offering for the Indian market. The CD 110 Dream, the newest entrant in commuter segment shares its physicality with the other Dream series bikes Neo and Yuga and is powered by 110cc, air-cooled motor which can pump in 8.3 PS of power at 7,500 rpm and 8.63 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The bike comes with Honda Eco Technology (HET), enabling the CD 110 Dream to give a mileage of 74 kmpl.
As far as the looks of the new bike is concerned, the new Dream bike houses signature silver engine sleeve, tempting silver tone alloy wheels, graphics, tubeless tyres, viscous air filter and maintenance free battery. The only flaw is the lack of disc brake. The bike which is targeting primarily the daily commuters has a ground clearance of 179 mm along with extended wheelbase of 1,258 mm.
If reports are to be believed, the booking for the new bike will commence shortly in the country with dispatches scheduled to begin from mid-July. The two wheeler enthusiasts in the country will be able to grab the bike directly from the showrooms by August 2014.
CD 110 Dream will be available in three paint jobs - Black with Red stripe, Black with Blue Stripe and Black with Grey stripe and will be offered in three variants - in Kick/Drum and Spoke.
