Apart from the addition of CBS, the motorcycles continue to feature the same mechanical specifications as before. The engines would receive a major upgrade in 2020 when the BS-VI emission norms come into effect. Till then, the Honda Dream Yuga and Livo would use a 109.19 cc, air cooled, 4-stroke engine that delivers 8.31 bhp of power at 7,500 rpm and 9.09 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a four-speed gearbox.
Anchoring department of the Dream Yuga comprises 130 mm drum brakes on both ends while the Livo comes with the option of a 240 mm disc brake at the front. The Dream Yuga is aimed to attract mature buyers while the Livo is targeted to a younger audience who are looking for a budget motorcycle. The styling reflects the same, and the Livo comes with a relatively muscular look while the Dream Yuga adapts subtle visual cues.
Conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear perform shock absorption tasks. Both models feature 80/100-18 section tubeless tyres on both ends.
