Honda has come up with a MotoGP edition of the great look of the Vario 160 sports scooter. Just a few days ago, Honda introduced the Vario 160 sports scooter in the Indonesian market. However, the Vario 160 MotoGP Edition is not available for sale at the moment, the company said. Honda has unveiled a total of four units of the Vario 160 MotoGP Edition. The model numbers of two of them are 93 and 44. The most interesting thing is that even if it is a scooter, it should look like a bike.

The features and specifications of the Honda Vario 160 MotoGP Edition are standard but exactly the same as the Vario 160. The two models of the scooter will be used by Mark Marquez and Paul Espargaro. They are the two official riders of that team. The other two units will be used by Paddock Crew. Honda will use these scooters in pre-season tests. Then there will be the real racing event in Mandalika.

The Vario 160 model has a muscular front apron and angular and sharp design around the scooter. Meanwhile, the orange and red MotoGP units have gone to a different level and seem to have enhanced their visual appeal. However, it would not be a surprise if Honda comes with a MotoGP edition of the Vario 160 model.

This Vario 160 scooter is provided with 14 inch alloy wheels. There is a 160 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled engine that is capable of delivering a maximum of 15 bhp of power and 13.4 Nm of peak torque. This scooter also has some practical features.

Notable among them are 16 liters of under-seat storage space, a USB charging port and standard ABS. There is a full-LED lighting system and a fully digital console that can display a bunch of data.

The scooter is available in two trims, CBS and dual-channel ABS. Among them, the price of CBS model is 25 lakh 60 thousand RP or about 1 lakh 34 thousand rupees in Indian currency. On the other hand, the price of dual-channel ABS model is 26 lakh 50 thousand RP.

There are two more models of this Vario scooter, the Vario 125 and the Vario 150. Both models are very popular in the Indonesian market. This time Honda Vario 160 is being added to that line-up. However, this scooter is unlikely to come to our domestic market, even the Indian market.
