Honda Dream Yuga Review

Bike tested: 2012 Honda Dream Yuga (Self-Drum-Alloy)

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 56,799/-

Post the break-up with Hero, Honda has been gunning down Bajaj Auto’s throat at a rapid pace. The Japanese automaker has brought in new product upgrades, changed its communication plan, roped in Akshay Kumar and committed itself to increase service outlets. Clearly Honda wants to snatch the numero uno spot from its erstwhile partner and the Dream Yuga is one such vehicle which is key to doing so. We take the Honda Dream Yuga out for a spin to find out if it can dethrone established commuter motorcycles in India.

Styling – The Honda Dream Yuga looks like a scaled down version of the CB Shine. The tank has a bigger scoop for better thigh support and the rear fender is sharpened with the name printed on it. The front mudguard is long which adds to the premium ‘look’ of the Honda Dream Yuga. The headlight assembly is pretty much the same as the CB Shine but smaller in size. The exhaust is sleeker and has a better looking heat-shield painted in black like in most Honda bikes. The side panels are quite distinct from those on the Shine. However, the red Honda badge on the engine casing and the 3D-emblem on the tank is missing. The rest like the rear mudguard, turn indicators, rear view mirror’s and tail lights are identical to the CB Shine.

Ergonomics – The seating position is very upright and the wide handle gives the Honda Dream Yuga a very commuter feel. The foot pegs are placed for a comfortable ride for both the rider and the pillion. The RVMs are adequate for the normal sized people but not if you are broad. Seat could have used much more cushioning for pillion and the rider, which could have made it much better to adjust to the taller handle bars. There is enough space for inner thighs to breathe and the scoops on the tank serve their purpose well with good thigh support. Overall long journeys are comfortable enough on the Honda Dream Yuga.

Instrument Cluster and Switch Gear – Instrument cluster of the Honda Dream Yuga is very simply laid out. There are two round dials. The one on the left is the speedometer which has 30 to 50 km/h marked as economy mode. The speedo is marked till 140 km/h though, finicky indeed. An old-fashioned trip meter sits inside the speedometer. On the right is the fuel gauge which consists of the basic things like high beam, neutral and turn lights. Switch gear is pretty decent with respectable quality for the motorcycle at this price point. It’s the very same seen on most of the Honda bikes which includes pass light and high beam button. But it misses out on the engine kill button which the competition offers. However, the switch gear will be different to operate for those people who are graduating from other bike manufacturers.

Performance and Gearbox – The Honda Dream Yuga is powered by a 109 cc, 4-stroke engine which produces 8.5 BHP of peak power output at 7500 RPM and 8.91 Nm of peak torque output at 5500 RPM. This engine is powered by what Honda calls Intelligent Ignition. All though the motor is borrowed from its sister, the Twister, it runs on slightly de-tuned state than the Twister. The motor has typical Honda traits, it is smooth and refined as a Honda should be. Thanks to the under square layout of the engine which produces sufficient torque at low revs to get you moving. The motor usually is at its best when it comes to mid and top-end power delivery.

The sound of this engine is remarkably good and for a commuter it’s an absolute delight. The power is transferred to the rear wheels by a smooth shifting 4-speed gearbox, which is a mixed bag when it comes to gearing. The first gear is of no use, it will hardly reach 15 km/h, so it’s best to shift to second instantly. Second gear gives sufficient power to get one moving and when shifted to third, you can see decent progress with the speedo showing 45-50 km/h. When shifted to a very tall fourth gear, the Honda Dream Yuga takes its own sweet time to reach all the way to its top speed of 80 km/h. Gear pattern is all down which isn’t suitable for us enthusiasts but commuters will relish it.

Ride, Handling and Braking – Despite the increase in every dimension (length, width, height, and wheelbase), the Honda Dream Yuga has the same kerb weight as that of the Twister. No, it’s not any magic, but it is all thanks to the single down tube chassis which has less weight compared to the twin tube type frame which the Twister is bolted on to. This procedure usually leads to vibrations, because engine is a part of the chassis. Luckily, there are no vibrations here, thanks to the refinement of the engine and various other factors. The 18-inch wheels on the Dream Yuga provide best in class handling and ride comfort.

Ride quality is excellent and despite 18-inch wheels, turn-in is crisp and the bike takes sweepers with great poise and in a balanced manner. Maneuvering in town as always is superb and it can go through any imaginable gap you throw at it. Braking was mediocre, primarily because brakes were new and needed some run-in to get a proper bite. Rear-brake is adequate and did most of the job effortlessly.

Miscellaneous – Fit and finish was excellent, plastic quality was good for a motorcycle of this size and price-point. Headlight throw was quite good on low beam while high beam was satisfactory on highways as well despite the small size. The ground clearance of the Dream Yuga is 161 mm while the CB Twister has 180 mm. The thing we did not understand is that inspite the Dream Yuga being projected as a tougher bike, why was the ground clearance reduced? Aerodynamics may be. You will have to pay for ‘accessories’ such as engine guard, alloy wheels, and self start (on the lower variants) and there is no option for disc-brakes in any variant.

If you need one, Honda suggests the Twister may be a better option for you. Fuel efficiency in our riding condition was around 58-60 km/l. Hopefully after first service (which was not performed on our test bike) it should increase and it could reach a more sensible 63-65 km/l in sane riding conditions. Tubeless tyres are standard, all though you won’t get tubeless in the market after current tyres wear-out, a typical Honda trait which is previously seen on all its commuter segment bikes. Paper element filter should give a very long cleaning interval and long time interval before you change one. Horn is loud enough, finally. The Honda Dream Yuga lacks features offered by key competitors such an engine kill switch, LED tail light, pilot lamp in head light, etc, despite the premium pricing.

Conclusion – The Honda Dream Yuga does its job well for a commuter segment bike. It has an excellent engine, good maneuverability and is an excellent commuter package. However it is priced significantly higher than its rivals. While Honda believes this product will help them dominate the Indian market, we think it’s just the Honda badge which will help them extract that extra cash. After all, it is Honda, Sach kardega apke sapne!

    The way honda is going, they will soon have monoply in bikes like scooter!!

  • kedar August 20, 2012, 12:04 am

    I dont this Honda will be a monopoly. Because looking at their pricing strategy it’s not going to work as Hero. They are pricing premium for their bikes for nothing.

    • dude May 8, 2014, 10:20 pm

      You are wrong, Hero engine is a old honda engine. This 110cc is newly engineered honda bike, obviously it cost higher.

  • Amish August 20, 2012, 9:13 am

    Exhaustive Review sir,any chances of throwing in a comparo with its main competitors Hayate and Splendor?

    • Mac Jason August 20, 2012, 7:56 pm

      I came across few such comparisons over other websites but many times features of Hayate were wisely kept hidden to make Dream yuga look better than Hayate. May be Honda have given good money to media and webmasters of automotive websites to do so. I bet here also you won’t find such Head to Head fair comparison of both bikes. Hayate is a real value for money bike though suzuki could have added few more features with it.

    • amit August 21, 2012, 10:12 am

      Why not to include Discover ? :D

      • Faisal Khan August 21, 2012, 10:35 am

        Mac Jason, we have not ridden the Hayate, so won’t be in a position to compare with it. On paper, the Hayate is more value for money, being around Rs. 4000/- cheaper. When we do review the Hayate vs Dream Yuga, trust me, the comparison will be very fair. We don’t manipulate test results. At the end of the day, the things we write, can be verified by anyone, by simply riding the bike.

        • Mac Jason August 22, 2012, 4:01 pm

          @Faisal, Thanks for the reply, Good luck for such comparison and I also request you to drag other 100-110 bikes in to the competition(spendor, passion, YBR, TVS Star, Discover etc), if possible. Hope you will mention each details of each bike. Waiting curiously for it.

          I also apologies for raising doubts over Motorbeam information reliability.

      • Faisal Khan August 21, 2012, 10:38 am

        Amit, once we finish individual reviews, we will look at comparison tests.

  • sachin August 21, 2012, 1:28 am

    Honda is on right track…..its only the pricing issue that can prevent them from reaching top spot. Honda is charging much high premium for all their products. bikes such as CBR150 are some good examples which has given its competitors a good chance to prove their worth.

  • amit August 21, 2012, 10:37 am

    Now it now where seems, bajaj can regain its lost crown from Honda.

    • Nanda Kumar August 25, 2012, 5:19 pm

      It is impossible Mr. Amit…

  • Amish August 21, 2012, 1:56 pm

    Why disc brake is not even offered as an option? A company like Honda should focus on safety keeping in mind with price

    • amit August 22, 2012, 5:07 pm

      Type of Brake used will be determined by the Vehicle weight, Top Speed, Accelertion. Do you really need a disc for a Bike with 109 Kg weight with top speed of 80kmph ?

  • Nanda Kumar August 25, 2012, 5:18 pm

    Honda is on right track…..its only the pricing issue that can prevent them from reaching top spot. Honda is charging much high premium for all their products. bikes such as Dream, Shine , CBR150 etc., are some good examples which has given its competitors a good chance to prove their worth.

    I wish them all the best.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Faisal Khan September 2, 2012, 4:11 pm

      Kiran, the Dream Yuga is a good bike to consider as the reliability of Honda is very good

      • Kiran September 4, 2012, 3:46 pm

        Thanks Faisal for your advice , i had booked honda dream yuga on Sep 03 .

        • Faisal Khan September 5, 2012, 2:59 am

          • bupeshkumarbachu October 20, 2012, 8:55 am

            Could you please let us know how the dream yuga bike as i am going to buy it?

  • bapi September 6, 2012, 10:58 pm

    Think honda is going to give a lots of options in every segment .But old looking splender is also there and till now its selling like hotcake.

    • Faisal Khan September 12, 2012, 11:38 pm

      Bapi, Splendor styling is very classic.

  • Kakoo September 10, 2012, 6:43 pm

    Very detailed and preponderant coverage. I have been in the verge of buying a new bike. Honda’s Dream Yuga inspired me much more than its opponents. I started to admired its decent look first of all. Now I understood the complete inside stories after reading your versions Faisal. Dream Yuga has been introduced very recently in Chennai. I have decided to book one for me in a short while.
    Off-course, the price is some what higher indeed. Thanks for your sharing such a clear review Faisal.

  • jeevan September 11, 2012, 9:30 am

    Dream yuga…Huh!!! it’s definitely not keeping up the promises. i just checked my mileage it’s aroung 45km…very very poor….moreover on the 1st day itself i encountered acceleration problem. while changing the gear/slowing down i had to keep on accelerating, to prevent bike engine from stopping. I took the bike to service center and they spent 1 hour to figure out the problem. They had to removed the engine parts,clean them. It is a painful thing to see ur new bike go through all these things that to. Moreover driving in 4th gear is not that smooth; u can feel the vibrations, problem with handle when moved sidewards(left/right); it does not move freely,problem with center stand as well.

    • Faisal Khan September 12, 2012, 11:39 pm

      Jeevan, what is the speed you usually do on your bike?

  • Anish September 11, 2012, 9:42 am

    faisal, after how much odo you have find out the fuel mileage of this bike. I am observing that my bike returns mileage between 42~48kmpl in city. Also there is lot of tappet noise from engine upper case. My have crossed 2600kms. What could be the reason?

    • Faisal Khan September 12, 2012, 11:40 pm

      Anish, that is surprising. Get it checked by a Honda dealer. It should return a mileage of atleast 60 km/l.

      • zubair khan July 15, 2013, 10:06 am

        asssalamwalwqum bhai ramzan mubarak . i am planning 2 buy a honda bike bt m a bit confused. which 1 i shuld buy. my daily traveling is 30km one side i personaly like unicorn or stunner i stay in hyderabad please suggest me any of honda bikes according to my useage and pocket friendly

  • vignesh September 11, 2012, 10:31 pm

    Dear Faisal,

    I want to buy a new bike. After long discussion , i select some of the models.

    Splendor Plus
    Passion Pro
    Dream Yuga

    My Budget Rs. 53000-62000. Mileage, Durability is important factor. Kindly suggest best option.

    • Faisal Khan September 12, 2012, 11:41 pm

      Vignesh, all the three bikes are Honda underneath. So choose the one which appeals the most to you.

  • roshu September 12, 2012, 5:15 pm

    I have purchased Hayate three months back and in pune traffic i am getting mileage of 62 km/lit sttill second service is due i have just finish 1370km on my odometer. friends i would like to say suzuki hayate is really an value for money bike .as compared to dream yuga which is 10 k costlier than hayate , i dont understand why this site has not justified the price , i would like to ask Faisal would like to pay more 10 k for an 110cc bike where you have an competitor who gives same kind of product with 10 k less but no compromise on qulaity.And you are saying that you have not tested hayate i dont believe this because hayate was launched much before than dream yuga.

    • Faisal Khan September 12, 2012, 11:42 pm

      Roshu, we recently tested the Hayate and were surprised by the bike. Even though its cheaper, its quite promising. I never said the Dream Yuga is better or the Hayate is better but the Yuga does have a very smooth engine, which can’t be ignored.

      • Anish September 13, 2012, 3:40 pm

        I dont agree with you faisal. I would say the smoothest engine delivered by Honda is in Unicorn. delers are refusing to understand the problem and are are saying there is no concern with bike. i am not satisfied.

        • Faisal Khan September 13, 2012, 3:46 pm

          Anish, I never said it has the smoothest engine, it has a very smooth engine which is a one of its USPs.

  • roshu September 13, 2012, 2:11 pm

    thanks faisal

  • madan mohan September 14, 2012, 3:02 pm

  • sakilur September 14, 2012, 4:02 pm

    Dear sir i want to purchase a bike i have two option hayate or dream yuga.i only want milage………so please help me.

    • arnav October 2, 2012, 1:07 pm

      If you have good service centers of Suzuki nearby; you can blindly go for suzuki hayate. Hayate is much cheaper than Dream Yuga, while it will provide you better milleage, performance and engine refinement as well.

      • roshu October 3, 2012, 5:26 pm

        I totally agree with arnav hayate is the best bike in 110c department

  • Prashanth September 14, 2012, 7:46 pm

    Hi Frinds,

    Now i want to take Honda dream Yuga anybody tell me tha mailege i realey Confused about this bike

    • arnav October 2, 2012, 1:13 pm

      Hi Prasanth….. If you behave well with your dream yuga you will get 60 kmpl in cities and a bit more on highways. Just don’t accelerate much while in run-in period; keep the speed below 50 kmph for the first 1500 kms and maintain regular servicing.

      • Prashanth October 21, 2012, 12:26 am

        thank u arnav.
        one more think wht about Extra fitting charges?

    • prasant sahoo August 26, 2013, 4:16 pm

      hi maitre, it is quite good for mileage . it long run it gives 70 kms per litre and in busy road it gives 60kms per litre like city and town.

      so, there is no confusion on mileage. thanks

  • Prashanth September 14, 2012, 7:49 pm

    some one telling 40-50 Kmpl but Dealer givan 72 Kmpl it’s i want to know Fact Please Don’t Give fals Deatils

    • Dalton September 17, 2012, 5:24 pm

      I am in Kerala, Idukki district, full of hill roads only. I am getting 55.74 KMPL till my first service…I’ll update after second service within another two months…

      • prashanth October 25, 2012, 1:26 pm

        thank u Dalton,

        Wht abuot Extra Fittings?

      • Philip November 3, 2012, 7:48 pm

        Dear Dalton,

        Kindly do let me know the real condition of dream yuga. Also i want to know, is dream yuga better than CB Shine.?

  • Sajain Geevar September 17, 2012, 5:29 pm

    Nicely written review. I’m using Dream Yuga for 2 months now and I think you must mention extended warranty condition that it has to be serviced in every 2 months and when you take it to higher RPM you will feel the handle shifting to right/left and vibrates like a vibrator. Its not comfortable to sit above 60KM speeds.

    • Mohit October 14, 2012, 1:14 pm

      sajain i think there’s a problem with that, we dint discover any vibrations on our media abused bike also, i think you should check with service station asap

      Sorry for the late reply some technical issues on my side…

  • Aditya N. Sharma September 23, 2012, 6:39 am

    I’ve tested my dream yuga in presence of honda officials and dealer, we found an avrage of! 26kmpl in city. There was eight bikes , all of them were showing between 13 to 32 kmpl. So it very disappointing regarding fuel efficiency.

    • Sourabh bera November 10, 2012, 12:14 am

      Is that true that Dream yuga is giving just 26 kmpl in city…….may be it is just a defective piece since the company claims 72 kmpl and the showroom claims 68 kmpl!!!!!!!!!!

  • nasir September 24, 2012, 1:09 pm

    i have read all reviews of honda dream yuga and i am confused actually i am going to purchase honda dream yoga but now i am confused so please give me real knowledge about dream yoga
    i rwally want milege and low maintanance bike so please suggest me right bike for me

    • Faisal Khan September 25, 2012, 2:45 am

      Nasir, the Dream Yuga should fulfill your requirements.

  • amit September 24, 2012, 2:49 pm

    dream yoga is not at all a desiring bike. honda is exactly following same what honda cars are doing. in return they lost the market share and now people dint even bother. fuel efficeny and vibration are the huge downside of this bike. looks are excatly same as shine. Better to go for suzuki hayate, the best looking as well as vfm. other wise go for discover.

    • Sourabh bera November 10, 2012, 12:19 am

      Amit are u serious about that……………..a newly launched product of Honda has such demerits!!!!!!!!!! It produces vibrations@ 60kmph—- simply not reliable!!!!!!!!!

  • Deepak September 26, 2012, 6:12 pm

    i want to purchase bike dream yuga but i am confuse pls give me advice and suggestions about dream yuga

    • Faisal Khan September 28, 2012, 1:38 am

      Deepak, did you read the review above?

  • arnav October 2, 2012, 1:21 pm

    Suzuki Hayate is better than Dream Yuga. Dream Yuga could not successfully achieve a good reputation, though being a Honda product.

  • budhadev dash October 3, 2012, 1:25 pm

    i hv hero honda cd deluxe nd its good in milege nd comfort

  • Siby Xavier October 4, 2012, 9:45 pm

    I Was the First customer of Dream Yuga from Purackal Honda Kanjirappally Branch , in Kerala State. I just learned driving on my Dream yuga bike. Those who are looking for mileage can consider this bike but for style and speed, go 4 other Bikes. Mud is filling in front of the engine due to bad design of front mud guard. Back wheel is very thin, so chances are to skid on wet roads. Price is bit Higher. Accessories like crash guard ,number plates comes at extra cost.

  • Mac Jason October 7, 2012, 1:18 am

    Bought Hayate on 14 th Sep 2012, 540 kms crossed yet without any service (as first one is recommended after 750). Getting average of 59.5 kmpl (50 % city riding) with most possible careful riding and speed limit (40 kmph).

    Hayate Pros
    Smooth Engine
    Nice Ride, Handling and Braking capabilities
    Good fuel efficiency (can’t commit exact figure before 2nd service)
    Eye catching Looks (People continuously observe at your bike)
    Easy to clean (compared to my old Samurai with spoke wheels :P )
    Good after sales service (It depends on you how you handle showroom people, they replaced faulty fuel on-off tab for me without any charges)
    Comfortable ride (suspensions are very soft and smooth)
    Excellent Material and Build quality.
    The ‘SUZUKI’ Brand and pease of mind (at least for me)

    Big turning radius
    17 inch tyres
    Lack of pass switch
    Horn sound is not loud
    Service center people refused to use Motul Oil provided by me. (I will do it with my mechanic ;))

    Will perform first service very soon and will try to provide more updates over fuel efficiency.

    • roshu October 8, 2012, 12:50 pm

      it gives 68 + in city and 75 + on highways with top speed of 95+

      • Mac Jason October 8, 2012, 4:08 pm

        Yes, roshu, I am also hopeful to achieve 70 in city driving conditions once the carburetor gets tuned.

  • thouseef October 9, 2012, 3:01 pm

    • Faisal Khan October 16, 2012, 12:12 pm

      Kirubanand, the Pulsar 135 LS is not a flop, its a very good bike and worth buying. Reliability is good but not the best.

      • Kirubanand October 18, 2012, 7:35 pm

        Thanks alot Faisal.

  • Kirubanand October 18, 2012, 7:39 pm

I am searching for a bike which will give me – 1.comfortable pillion riding for my child and wife , maintenance & 3.good mileage . Primarily I selected Super Splendor ,Suzuki Hyate & Dream Yuga . Could you please suggest “MY BIKE” within this price range ?

  • virat dikshit October 23, 2012, 9:49 pm

    • ganesh November 16, 2012, 8:55 pm

      dont opt for Bajaj, you may get milage but your vehicle will be damaged within short time…go with HONDA

    • Ravishbhai October 26, 2013, 4:23 pm

      1.CB Honda Shine & 2.Passion Pro. As per your requirement CB Honda shine is perfect, Second option will be Passion Pro.

  • Philip October 26, 2012, 10:23 pm

    Dear Faisal,

    I have booked dream yuga on last week. But here there is a talk about dream yuga, which is not giving millage more than 40-45 kmpl. Someone told me to go for CB shine. but I am not interested to take Shine. I am living in a rural area. North (M.P). So please kindly tell me your opinion about dream yuga. also I want to know about Honda CB Shine.

    awaiting for your reply.
    thank you.

    • pankaj October 30, 2012, 11:32 pm

    • Faisal Khan November 1, 2012, 1:23 am

      Philip, not really.

      • Philip November 2, 2012, 7:18 pm

        Dear Faisal,

        Please Can you give me the real condition about dream yuga..? So that I can change my decision.

        • Faisal Khan November 4, 2012, 3:50 pm

          Philip, its a good commuter bike, worth buying.

  • Philip November 4, 2012, 9:26 pm

    Thank you Faisal,

  • Rahul A November 12, 2012, 1:19 am

    Im really confused between Yuga and twister . :( . My concern is about their mileage and durability . Which one do you think would last longer without any problems and gives a better mileage for a long time?

    • Faisal Khan November 17, 2012, 1:50 am

      Rahul, ideally Twister should last longer.

      • Anup December 5, 2012, 10:53 pm

        i dnt agree…..

  • Rahul A November 12, 2012, 1:22 am

    Is the twister really worth its premium pricing ? I think it costs 4k more than yuga .

  • gash November 12, 2012, 2:13 am

    both shares the same engine… n twister suits short persons well… soo

  • Naveen November 12, 2012, 12:21 pm

    I am going to dream yuga pls tell me excat millage.

    • Faisal Khan November 17, 2012, 1:53 am

      Naveen, read the review, the mileage is given there.

  • Rahul A November 12, 2012, 5:48 pm

    @Gash , im 6’2″ ! I need a bike that’ll be comfortable for me to ride .

  • ganesh November 16, 2012, 9:02 pm

    what makes CB shine better than Dream Yuga? any other difference other than engine power?

    • Faisal Khan November 17, 2012, 2:23 am

      Ganeeh, quality and design.

      • Velutha December 11, 2012, 1:55 pm

        @Faisal, Pray tell us how you figured that one out? Shine with its antiquated tubular swing arm and an uncharacteristically poor performance as well as fuel efficiency cannot bee better than a modern box section swingarm equipped Dream Yuga with its excellent performance fuel efficiency.

        • Faisal Khan December 11, 2012, 7:56 pm

          Velutha, my preference was based on better performance.

  • divesh gadad November 17, 2012, 12:33 pm

    • Faisal Khan November 28, 2012, 1:26 am

      Tanweer, get the Honda Shine but Dream Yuga is slightly more frugal.

  • MadanMohan November 28, 2012, 7:42 pm

    Hi Faisal khan presently i am using herohonds splendor 2003 make and it has completed 80,000kms. it is giving 55-60kmpl. Now i want to purchase the dream yuga. what is the performance of dream yuga. what about the pferformence of Hero CD.Deluxe. mainly i want good milege. which is better .

    • Faisal Khan November 29, 2012, 12:08 am

      Madan Mohan, Dream Yuga is a good bike, should give you similar mileage as your Splendor does currently.

      • Pinaki December 23, 2012, 3:01 pm

        … but after 9 years and 800000 kms ? I doubt it ;-)

        • Pinaki December 23, 2012, 3:08 pm

          … read that as “80,000 kms” . Sorry for typo .

  • sarfraz November 29, 2012, 7:06 pm

    Hi Faisal,
    I am planning for a new bike .I previously owned pulsar 150(but it was second hand) so didn’t gave much mileage.Therefore I had second thoughts over pulsar 150.However this time I was thinking to go for stunner.Which bike would you suggest for cost effective as well as good looks.

    • Faisal Khan December 5, 2012, 12:05 am

      Sarfarz, Pulsar 150 is a good option but also look at Suzuki GS150R.

  • KISHAN November 30, 2012, 2:58 pm


  • Amol Patil November 30, 2012, 5:22 pm

    Dream Yuga bike ek bahout hi comfortable he. aur is ka milege bhi achha he .(60-65).

      passion pro is not good,u better cjoose honda product so gd

      Chethan, 55 km/l.

      • Subhayan April 8, 2013, 11:48 pm

        Instead of going for Passion Pro, you may chose Glamour……

  • raj bharmal December 6, 2012, 12:00 pm

    dream yuga its nice bike but milage is only 60 very bad

  • krishna December 6, 2012, 7:36 pm

    Hero passion X pro is Much Better than Honda dreem Yuga. Yuga is poor looking & very ordinary Bike. Milege coming Hardly 50 in the city.

  • keshava reddy December 6, 2012, 7:50 pm

    Hero passion New xpro is stylish,gud looking,Gud milege, ultimate bike giving 60 kmpl in the city. Honda dreem yuga is dreeming, looking ordinary,it never beat Hero Xpro.

  • Satish January 4, 2013, 3:59 pm

    Following has been stated in the article “Tubeless tyres are standard, all though you won’t get tubeless in the market after current tyres wear-out”.

    Kindly clarify what are the options when the current tyres wear out. Can we not replace it with new one?

    • Mohit January 5, 2013, 1:09 pm

      Tubeless tyres come from manufacturers but you dont get tubeless tyres from the market of this size as manufacturers get their tyres specially made! it doesn’t have any concern with thread wear.. its just that manufacturers give it to the customer after which customers buy tube tires from the market because its not available which is a disappointment

    These Are Lots of Problems in Dream Yuga 110cc bike
    Which Were Not Solved Yet After 5 Time Maintenance within 12 Month.
    Every Time Job Card has made for same complaint.
    1) Oil Leakage From Engine Head
    2) Pickup (when two person hardly 40 km )
    3) Average – Honda Say’s 72kmpl But We Never Get More Then 45kmpl
    4) Engine Knocking – It Happen in 2 & 3 Gear Also.
    5) Suddenly Engine Stop After Pressing Clutch At Any Gear – Which is Very Danger to Drive On Road
    6) Engine Were Stop on Neutral Position Within 15 Second On Day Mode & Within 5 Second When Headlight were On.
    7) Every Nut Bold Get Rusty Within 1 Month
    8) Engine Noise & Firing Also Not Smooth As Compare To Other Dream Yuga Bike.
    9) Fuel Indicator Not Working From Date Of Purchase
    10) Color Bubble On Front Mudguard
    11) Main Stand Was Not Stable – Solved On Second Service
    12) Engine Race High On Turn
    —- These Unbearable Trouble Which is manufacturing defect in Dream Yuga 110cc.
    Specially GUJARAT-RAJKOT people don’t purchase from DHARTI HONDA, sales people and service people giving such childish reasons of fault that “You dont know how to ride BIKE..” so funny….

  • Chhayendra Chaudhari May 24, 2014, 7:28 pm

    Honda dream Yuga is the best bike . When driven on economy mode (30-50km) gives me the milage 70-74 on highways & 65-70 on city roads. Good controls & looks .Overall it is the best byke with respect to milage, speed , pickup, maintenance ,riding comfort.Its on road price is only Rs. 54,484 (Dombivali, Maharashtra) .Only thing is that it does not give proper pickup on highways so very difficult for overtaking the speeding vehicle. so my suggetion is please donot try to overtake on highways with this byke.I am really enjoying this byke since last two months. Excellent family byke .
