The all new Dio is super rustic and enhanced features with attractive look to lure young bike lovers. It was a solo winner in 110cc segment if we take its credibility and look with awesome features but i expect the price to be between Rs.60000-65000 On Road (Including accesories) as i had inquired a month before for my friend.
