The 2020 Honda Livo BS6 has been launched in India, with prices starting at Rs. 69,422 (ex-showroom, Jaipur). Prices for the BS4 Honda Livo started at Rs. 58,775. The new Livo gets a host of updates to the engine, features and gets new colours as well. There will two variants on sale, disc brake variant and drum brake variant. The complete prices are yet to be revealed. The 110 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine is now BS6 compliant and gets Honda's enhanced smart power (eSP), Honda Eco Technology (HET) and an ACG starter motor which makes for quiet, smooth 'engine-start' operation.
The engine utilises decompression with slightly open exhaust valves and a 'swingback' feature that rotates the engine in the opposite direction so that the piston gets a running start and uses minimal power for starting up. The other technological change is the use of the AC generator for starting the engine. Now that the engine is BS6 compliant, it uses programmed fuel injection for better efficiency and less emissions. Plus, Honda has also reduced the friction generated in the engine as well.
In terms of feature updates, the 2020 Livo BS6 gets a new DC headlamp with a brighter beam, engine start/stop switch, pass switch and a service due indicator. As far as design is concerned, the new motorcycle gets a new headlamp cowl up front, a newly designed fuel tank that is flanked by new tank shrouds. The instrument console is completely new too and looks cooler than before.
