Model Name:DIO CESTA


Model Year:2006

It was the spin-off model of DIO that was developed to improve its daily usability. It came with a resin-made front 24L basket that had a rolling shutter, a 22L helmet space under the seat, and a 1.5L front inner box that could store a 1.5L plastic bottle. It was a motorcycle with a huge storage capacity. Its headlight and blinkers were installed under the basket, and the handle cover had a position lamp to light the inner side of the basket. The engine was the same as the ones of TODAY. It was an air-cooled 4-stroke unit that was both fuel-efficient and quiet. By optimizing the thickness and the shape of the seat, the seat height was made into 690mm. The design and the location of the center stand was changed to make it easier to operate the stand and to make it become female-friendly. It also featured various anti-theft devices, such as a direct start prevention circuit, key cylinder with a shutter, a rear carrier with a U-shaped lock holder, an alarm kit or a pre-wiring for an immobilizer. Pink was newly added instead of the black, and yellow and light blue were continued.
