Honda has recently updated its Beat Series in the Indonesian market. The Beat Series consists of two models, namely, Beat and Beat Street. Both scooters have received cosmetic updates, while mechanically they have remained the same. While the Beat Series has received an update in Indonesia, its arrival in the Indian market seems highly unlikely as the company already offers the Activa 6G and the Dio in the country. To know more about the Beat Series, let's take a look at the details of the same.
The Honda Beat gets a commuter-ish and stylish design while the Beat Street features a sporty look. The Honda Beat has two variants (CBS-ISS and CBS) and ten colours on offer. While Beat Street has only one standard variant and two colours (Black and Silver) on offer. Both scooters get a sharp headlamp, new stripes, graphics, single-piece seat, edgy rear grab handle, lean tail section and a black exhaust cover.
The Beat Series draws power from a 109.5cc PGM-Fi engine that produces 8.85bhp at 7,500rpm and 9.3Nm at 5,500rpm. All this power and torque is taken to its wheels via a V-Matic automatic (CVT) transmission. This engine is further assisted by enhanced smart power technology and an ACG starter motor for a silent start.
Both the scooters are offered with features like LED headlight, 12V charging port, automatic side stand engine cut off, brake lock lever, 12-litre booth space and a combi-braking system. The Honda Beat comes with a semi-digital instrument cluster, while the Beat Street gets a fully digital unit. The Honda Beat also gets an Eco riding indicator on offer.
The Beat Series uses telescopic forks at the front and a swing arm with a single shock absorber at the rear. Meanwhile, for braking, these scooters employ a disc at the front and a drum at the rear assisted by a combi-braking system (CBS). These scooters ride on 14-inch wheels, and these wheels are wrapped in tyres having 80mm width at the front and 90mm width at the rear.
