Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is reportedly revving up to re-enter the motorcycle market with a strategic relaunch of its previously popular 100cc class motorcycle, the Honda Dream Yuga. This move is anticipated after the bike initially shook up its market segment upon release, forcing competitors to re-evaluate their positions. Despite its past success, the company had ceased production for reasons not disclosed.
Now, industry buzz suggests a makeover for the Dream Yuga. Rumors hint at a complete overhaul from engine power to features and pricing. However, HMSI has not yet confirmed these updates.
The market is abuzz with expectations that HMSI will soon introduce the Honda Dream Yuga to its lineup. Insiders have confirmed the comeback of the Dream Yuga 100, slated to hit the markets shortly, potentially in 2024. This bike is expected to compete at the Splendor level, reminiscent of its past market performance where it enjoyed substantial sales.
According to sources close to the company, the new Honda Dream Yuga may be equipped with a 124.5 cc BSVI 2.0 engine capable of delivering 10.9 PS of power and 11 Nm of torque. For safety, the bike could feature disc brakes on the front tire and drum brakes on the rear, alongside a 5-speed gearbox.
Feature-wise, the revamped Dream Yuga is anticipated to come with advanced technology including a Combi Brake System, connectivity options such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and navigation. The motorcycle is also expected to boast a digital speedometer, odometer, tachometer, trip meter, along with a side stand indicator and fuel gauge, aligning with modern biking requirements.
A notable feature of the Honda Dream Yuga is its 100cc air-cooled engine, promising both efficiency and performance. The motorcycle is touted to offer excellent fuel efficiency, potentially delivering between 60 to 70 kilometers per liter, making it an attractive option for cost-conscious riders.
In terms of pricing, the Honda Dream Yuga is expected to be positioned around INR 70,000 ex-showroom, aiming to offer value for money. The bike is set to include a side stand indicator, a digital instrument cluster, low fuel and service indicators, and even a USB charging port, further enhancing its appeal to tech-savvy consumers looking for a blend of tradition and modernity in their ride.
While the anticipation builds, motorcycle enthusiasts and potential buyers must wait for official confirmations and announcements from HMSI regarding the final specifications, features, and launch date of the Honda Dream Yuga.
