The new Honda will square off against the Hero Splendor
Like the Yuga, the Dream Neo starts with a spoke-wheeled, tuff up tube tyre variant with a kick start. The next version has alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and kick start. The top-of-the line trim has alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and an electric start. Drum brakes and a maintenance-free battery are standard.
