Bikeportal has been updating about Livo since the first day Honda took it out for the road test. We told you that Honda will replace the low selling CB Twister with a new offering in the entry level commuter segment motorcycle ‘Livo’.

The engine is matched to a 4-speed manual transmission. Based on the looks, Livo is majorly inspired from the Unicorn 160 styling. The tank extensions and also the exhaust are similar to that from the Unicorn 160, while the tail section is taken from the Dream series. Livo measures 2020mm in length, 746mm in width and 1099mm in height. The wheelbase of Livo is 1284mm and ground clearance is good 180mm.
