Replaces the Biz 100.
Honda Two Wheelers of Brazil has launched the all-new Honda Biz 110i as a replacement to the Honda Biz 100. The model is essentially an upgradation of the Biz 100 with the Honda Pop 110i’s powertrain. The Biz 110i is priced at BRL 7,090 (INR 1.17 lakhs), which is around BRL 1,000 (INR 16,600) higher than the model it replaces.
The Honda Biz 110i is powered by a 109.1 cc single-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled gasoline engine with OHC and PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection), that produces 8.3 hp at 7,250 rpm and 8.83 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The motor is mated to a rotary semi-automatic transmission with four-speeds, and an electric start system. The engine is compliant to the new, second phase of the PROMOT IV (Pollutant Emission Control Program for Motorcycles and Similar vehicles), which was enforced on January 1, 2016.
The vital components on the Honda Biz 110i include a telescopic fork with 100 mm travel, double rear dampers with 86 mm stroke, drum brakes of 130 mm diameter at the front and 110 mm at the rear, spoke wheels, and a new catalytic converter for the exhaust system.
Compared to the Biz 100, the Biz 110i features a revised styling, clear lens turn indicators, new instrument cluster layout, and a larger storage compartment underneath the seat. The Biz 110i is available in black and red colours.
