Ltd. said, “Six out of 10 two wheelers sold in India belong to 100-110cc segment.

‘CLIQ’ Delivers maximum utility with practicality
An industry first in terms of OEM fitment in the 100-110cc 2wheeler category, CLIQ’s special block pattern tires with deep grooves provide extra grip and better control over patchy roads under all weather conditions. These rugged tires are also more durable and have a longer life.
Wide & spacious foot-board, large under-seat storage space and rear carrier (optional) enhance the comfort and utility of increased load carrying capacity.
Honda Reliability & Trust
CLIQ is powered by the trusted 110cc Honda BS-IV HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine, which delivers superb mileage with no compromise in performance. With the engine delivering 5.91 Kw of power and a kerb weight of only 102 kgs, it has one of the best power to weight ratio which makes it extremely exciting to ride.
Ahead of its time, CLIQ comes equipped with Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer technology. (As per Government regulations, CBS will be mandatory on all two-wheelers up to 125cc engine capacity from April 1, 2018). The unique Equalizer in Honda’s advanced Combi Brake System (CBS) distributes braking force proportionately between front and rear wheels simultaneously by pressing just the left lever. This results in reduced braking distance & improved balance, leading to more confident riding compared to conventional braking.
Better comfort with convenience
CLIQ’s unisex design makes it equally comfortable to be ridden by both male and female riders. Far more convenient than using clutch and engaging gears, CLIQ’s automatic transmission ensures low cost of ownership and a smoother ride. With lower seat height, lighter weight, CLIQ is easy to manoeuvre through dense traffic as well as narrow lanes.
The Mobile charging socket ensures that you always remain connected while tubeless tyres, maintenance free battery and viscous air filter adds to the convenience of the rider.
Customers can choose from a variety of optional parts including Front Screen, Floor Cover, Box Center, Cap Cover, Rear Grip which would enhance both utility and aesthetics of CLIQ. These parts can be selected individually by the customer and are economically priced.
