New headlight

In terms of looks, the Honda Wave Dash is no doubt an underbone vehicle. However, that doesn’t mean it has to look boring and less appealing than any other Honda product out there in the market. Honda made sure that even with an underbone platform, the Wave Dash gets some new styling elements that would help it stand out from the crowd.

The headlight of the Honda Wave Dash is quite attractive. Not only its design a bit modern, but it has also been upgraded to an LED unit. Now it provides a better illumination of what’s ahead.

Stylish leg protector

Along with the rear cowl, it is the leg protector that is clearly visible when you’re admiring the Wave Dash from the side. Honda has made the leg protector very stylish by using a very striking set of graphics. They indicate the capacity of the engine and also has an ‘R’ which tells the people that this is not the usual Honda Dash.

Modern meter panel

The Honda Wave Dash not only carries a modern appearance when you’re looking at it from a distance, but it also looks and feels modern when you’re astride it. This is because of its stylish and updated meter panel. It really looks cool and is one of the top features of the vehicle. Even though it is not a fully digital unit, Honda still managed to keep it attractive. It has a speedometer at the centre accompanied by two other meters on either side that shows information like a fuel gauge and other telltale signs.

Peppy engine

Talking about the Honda Wave Dash specs, this underbone two-wheeler is powered by a 124.89cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, two-valve engine that has been tuned to produce 9.85 hp at 8000 rpm and generates a peak torque of 9.54 at 6500 rpm. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic unit. The engine seems to be quite peppy and the fact that the entire vehicle weighs just 103 kg (wet), riding it around the city becomes a fun task.

Rear disc brake

The braking system of the Wave Dash is quite impressive. Honda has incorporated disc brakes not only at the front but at the rear as well. This enhances the braking capabilities of the CUB and gives a sense of confidence to the rider.
