In the Indian motorbike market, Honda Motorcycles have been dominating over the other two-wheeler manufacturers with the wide variety of popular bike and scooter models it offers. The launching of their new Honda Livo motorcycle last year was just a manifestation that they are truly the leading motorcycle manufacturer in the world.

What also makes the bike well-liked by many is its excellent ground clearance of 180mm, which is very much suitable for the road conditions in India. It also offers its riders a very comfortable and enjoyable ride credited to the comfortable seating design of the bike, having a decent riding position and seat height.

The motorbike has a regular drum break that provides a great breaking power and an optional disc break at the front for an improved overall break performance. In addition, Honda Livo comes with an efficient suspension system, which includes telescopic forks and spring-loaded hydraulic suspension, for the front and for the rear respectively.
The Honda Livo has the familiar Honda design and looks pretty like the previously launched motorbike models. This new bike boasts an attractive and neat design, having a similar front with that of the CB Twister, which the Livo replaced in India, and side gets its design from the CB Unicorn.

These lines continue further to the rear part of the bike, which is designed nicely to maintain a neat and smart look. The side panels of the bike are divided into two, with the upper part painted the same as the body. On the other hand, the lower half is made of black plastic, which one of its ends forms a pseudo air scoop joined to the rear panel and the other end extends up to the base of the bike’s tank extension.
