Another unique feature of the bike is, it comes with a lockable tool kit to keep your important documents and papers safely and conveniently. Now how cool is that? Now no more tension of carrying an extra bag along with you because this Dream Neo comes with your own personal small locker.

The robust rectangular swing arm section in the bike offers the riders an amazing suspension features.
The bike is not very heavy as well with only a kerb weight of 105 kg along with a single tubular down tube frame, makes it easy handling for the bikers. The handling of this two-wheeler is good enough, and you can steer it quite ably on different kinds of roads. It’s overall length is 2009 mm and width is 737mm. It got a height of 1074 mm and ground clearance of 179 mm.
Which is a positive quality of the bike when it comes to stability and driving round the corners, the small weight and high ground clearance help the bike stay stable in those bumpy conditions. The bike looks very much similar to Dream Yuga except the graphics are different. The graphics of the dream neo is very much attractive, the vibrant dual tone stickers on the tank gives it a more appealing look and the panel graphics on the side of the bike just add up the quotient of the bike and makes it look more attractive from the sides, making the side view of the bike a sight to enjoy!
The all new Honda Dream Neo comes in five shades, they are- Alfa Red Metallic, Black With Violet Stripes, Force Silver Metallic, Black With Red Stripes and Monsoon Grey Metallic.
The Dream Neo is said to be the most affordable bike in terms of Honda in India’s range but in Bangladeshi taka the latest price is expected to be TK. 1,42,000/= Well now looking at the pros and cons of the bike the good parts are, it’s mileage of 74 km/L along with it’s fuel tank capacity of eight liters. Now fuel efficiency is a key factor any buyers look for in a good quality two-wheeler and Honda has been very much successful in meeting the consumers’ this need for mileage and that’s the reason that Neo is gaining so much popularity nowadays.
It’s amazing features and ergonomics are another reason for the bike’s high demand and it’s new HET refined engine just simply takes the bike to the another level! But looking at it’s downside, the bike got a very bland styling with the basic instrument cluster along with analogue meters. The bike also doesn’t have a self start and it’s disc brakes are not always available.
But at the end I would just like to say that, all in all it is a robust offering which has been designed to offer an amazing combination of looks, features and performance to buyers at an affordable cost which has made a very strong proposition even in such a cut throat segment.
