Honda planning Stylo 160 scooter for India?

In a strategic move to broaden its market footprint, Honda has patented the new-generation Stylo 160 scooter in India. This chic neo-retro vehicle was recently unveiled in Indonesia, and is now set to make its debut on Indian roads.

Stylo  Meeting Market Demand

The Stylo 160 is Honda’s solution to the growing appetite for high-performance scooters in India. This strategy was formulated after witnessing the success of Yamaha’s Aerox 155 and Hero MotoCorp’s Xoom 160. The Stylo 160 is being considered to meet the escalating demand for such scooters, a market traditionally dominated by 110cc and 125cc models.

Design and Features

The Stylo 160 sports a neo-retro silhouette, evoking memories of classic Lambretta scooters from the 1960s and 1970s. Notable design elements include a hexagonal LED headlamp, round mirrors, and C-shaped LED DRLs. The scooter also showcases a sharp-looking LED taillamp, a comfortable seat, a flat floorboard, and a robust grab rail. It comes in six attractive colors with varying versions featuring distinct design elements.

The Stylo 160 is equipped with a comprehensive digital instrument panel that displays various data such as fuel consumption, speedometer readings, and oil change alerts. It also incorporates the Honda Smartkey System which includes an electronic ignition and handlebar locking key. The vehicle employs an advanced underbone eSAF (Enhanced Smart Architecture Frame) chassis and rides on 12-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.

Performance and Mileage

The Stylo 160 is powered by a potent 156.9cc, liquid-cooled, ‘eSP+’ engine that delivers a maximum power of 15 hp and a peak torque of 13.8 Nm. The scooter boasts a fuel efficiency rating of 45 km/liter, making it a cost-effective option for consumers.

Stylo Launch and Pricing

Although the launch date and price for the Indian market have not been officially announced by Honda, reports suggest that the Stylo 160 could hit Indian roads by December 2024. The expected price range is between ₹1,00,000 to ₹1,20,000.

With its modern features and sleek design, the Stylo 160 is poised to compete with established contenders like Yamaha Aerox 155 and the upcoming Hero Xoom 160.
