Written by AnantaSaranNayak

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India has brought in the OBD2-compliant, all-new 2023 Dio. The prices start at INR 70,211, ex-showroom Delhi. Customers can get the Dio in a total of three variants. These are, namely, Standard, Deluxe, and Smart. The Deluxe and Smart trims will retail at INR 74,212 and INR 77,712, respectively. Also, Honda will offer a slew of colour options to choose from. These are Sports Red, Jazzy Blue Metallic, Mat Axis Grey Metallic, Dazzle Yellow Metallic, Mat Sangria Red Metallic, Pearl Igneous Black, and Mat Dark Blue Metallic. Customers will also get new graphics incorporated into the scooter. In addition to all of this, Honda Dio also comes with a smart key, much like the Activa.

2023 Honda Dio – Smart Key Highlighting Features

The globally acclaimed Honda Smart Key is now available with the new 2023 Dio. The Honda Smart Key System adds a range of following features:

Smart Find

This is an answer-back system as the smart key assists in easily locating the vehicle. Thus, when the answerback button is pressed on the Honda SMART Key, all 4 winkers will blink twice to locate the vehicle.

Smart Unlock

The Smart Key System is the latest technology feature. This makes it possible to lock and unlock the scooter without using a physical key. In case the system detects no response for 20 seconds after activation, the vehicle automatically gets deactivated.

Smart Start

If the smart key is within the range of 2 metres of the scooter, then the rider can crank start the vehicle by rotating the knob on the Loc Mod to the ignition position and push the start button. This will happen without even taking out the key.

Smart Safe

2023 Dio comes with Mapped Smart ECU. This acts as a security device by electronically matching(ID) between the ECU and SMART Key. This helps in preventing vehicle theft. The smart key also has an immobiliser system which prevents a non-registered key from starting the engine. Thus, without a secure connection with Smart Key, Immobilizer System is not activated
