It is worth noting that only four units of these models will be produced. Two of them come with the numbers ’93’ and ’44’ and these scooters will be used exclusively by the team’s official riders Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro respectively.
Apart from this, other units will be used by paddock crew. Needless to mention, the new orange and red MotoGP livery has been used only to enhance the sporty appeal on the exterior of the scooter, which looks quite sporty.
Also, it will not be a surprise if the company launches a limit-edition variant of the scooter for regular customers in the future. Let us tell you that the Honda Vario 160 has been launched in two trims, which include CBS and dual-channel ABS variants.
While the price of its first variant has been kept at RP 25,800,000 i.e. around Rs 1.34 lakh, the second variant has been priced at RP 28,500,000 i.e. around Rs 1.50 lakh. The latest 2022 Honda Vario 160 joins the already existing Vario scooter line-up.
The company’s Honda Vario lineup already includes the Vario 125 and the Vario 150. The Honda Vario lineup has been in production since 2006 and its seventh generation will not only get cosmetic improvements but also performance updates.
The scooter has been given a more edgy and sharp styling, which mimics the styling of the maxi scooter. However, the Honda Vario 160 is not a proper maxi-style scooter. The latest variant of the Honda Vario 160 flaunts a sporty premium design with a body that is now bigger than the outgoing model.
In a way, the styling of the Honda Vario 160 is reminiscent of Suzuki’s Burgman range of scooters. Suzuki Burgman with a heavily faired front fender is sold in the market. Up front, the scooter gets a brand new twin-beam LED headlamp.
It gets LED DRL eyebrows that extend to the top of the front apron, giving the scooter an aggressive face. Above the twin headlights, there are turn indicators, which come with LED position lamps. Furthermore, the sides of the apron and the under-seat panels flaunt a chiseled and muscular design.
On the front fenders, the Honda Vario branding has been pasted with 3D lettering. The front end of the scooter has been carried over to the AG styling at the rear, along with a sharper rear fender and a raised tail section. The chunky single-piece grab rail gives the scooter a rough and tough appeal.
Along with this, floorboards like black panels have been given in this scooter. Talking about the engine found in Honda Vario 160, it is powered by a 160cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, which provides 15 bhp power and 13.4 Newton meter maximum torque.
