Sales of Livo broke into the five-figure mark.
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters has surpassed its 2014 sales for the Dussera period, registering a 19 percent jump in sales compared to the same 10-day period in 2014. Both motorcycles and scooters showed robust sales.
Selling a total of 3.1 lakh units during the period, HMSI registered a bump of roughly 50,000 units compared to its sales in 2014. Selling significantly across its range, models like the Honda Activa, Dio, CB Shine, and the Dream Yuga emerged with success despite a dip in rural demand for almost a year. The biggest mark of success, HMSI reported in a press release, is the recently launched Honda Livo that registered five-figure sales in 10 days. The model was launched in July this year.
Powered by a 109 cc engine, the Livo generates 8.25 bhp at 7,500 rpm and produces peak torque of 8.63 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Mated to a 4-speed gearbox, the commuter bike has a claimed top speed of 86 kmph and a claimed mileage of 74 km to the liter. Both drum and disc brake variants are available.
