20 Honda unveils "Dream Yuga" its’ 110 cc commuter bike at the 2012 AutoExpo

Honda unveils its commuter dream.. err.. "Dream Yuga"

Styling mirrors the CB Shine..

110 cc engine from the CB Twister

"Dream Yuga", this one definitely has to be among the top of my list of weird motorcycle names. Yep, "Dream Yuga" is the chosen name for Honda’s much talked about foray into the voluminous commuter/100 cc motorycle category of India. This particular model from Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) was unveiled on the first day of the 2012 AutoExpo.



This particular motorcycle might not interest enthusiasts but it is a very important card in Honda’s grand game plan for India. Given the fact that Honda has officially put it on paper to part with its erstwhile partner Hero, I am expecting Dream Yuga to get top priority in the coming days from Honda.

But dude, that’s a weird name "Dream Yuga".

In terms of looks the Dream Yuga looks quite identical to the 125 cc CB Shine. Dream Yuga comes with a 110 cc engine which also does duty on the Honda’s CB Twister bike. I was really impressed with the engine of the CB Twister so one can expect the Dream Yuga to have great all round performance as well.

They are trying to sound Hero Honda'ish in the name to get into the heartland where hero honda sells by the truckloads.

Sounds like some book based on meditation and yoga !
Really wierd the name is.

Why not Shine 110 ? Shine has got good reputation in the market and Honda should have struck to the 'family name'

NeelDude said...

Dude,

which bike is the black one placed behind the "Dream Yuva" kinda caught my eye...

S.P - Biker Next Door said...

@Anil,

Shine 110, that is definitely a good name, plus the "Shine" brand needs no introduction in India

@NeedDude,

the Black motorcycle is a replica of one of Honda's early motorcycles

engine of twister .. but it may not handle as good as twister..
but at least it won't have the stiff suspension of twister..

ooo! my back aches at times on broken roads..

Veerendra Giddaluru said...

Yup, Shine 110 would have been much better. But, Honda wouldn't bother as they know Honda needs no introduction in India. I thought Hero Moto's Ignitor was much more funny & weird!

So, now it is going to be Honda Dream Yuga versus Hero Passion Pro versus Suzuki Hayate in the same 110cc category.

The 100cc Splendor, Discover 100, and Star City are one-step below.

Dream SH said...

The main battle will be between Yuga and Hayate and passion won't be able to compete with these two in terms of reliability and durability.

melville said...

why cant Honda OR Hero moto come up with a 100cc bike with premium features and styling instead of dull drab styling. i would love a 100cc bike with nitro- shocks,digital console with a digital fm radio,xenon headlights, disc brakes and a minium avg of 80kmpl. NOW DONT TELL ME IT CANT BE DONE.

WHAT HONDA SHOULD DO IS GIVE THE SHINE A COMPLETE FACELIFT.PUT 17 INCH WHEELS,NITROSHOX,DISC BRAKES BACK AND FRONT AND IMPROVED MILAGE.

Honda yuga will definetly rocks ,because it good in milage when compare to shine and it will overcome the gear shifting problem in CB Twister,even though twister good in look ,but had drawback as Gear shifting problem ,moreover Yuga is money-worthy in its range.

YUGA IT TOTALLY REPLICA HONDA SHINE. IS IT WILL GIVE 72 KMPL?
ALL HONDA PRODUCT ADVT MAILAGE ARE IN HIGHER KMPL BUT PRACTICALLY
LESS 15 KMPL

@melville

I hope you would not buy a bike just because it is named with your beloved name and don't have quality like Suzuki and Honda. I am sure people with typical Indian mentality would for Passion x pro just because it has fashionable name.
