Honda Vario 160 Design
The concept is still the same as before, still carrying a sporty style scooter. Has firm design lines. But now he is no longer slim. Some body panels are made to bulge solid. Clearly visible on the front. Made like a multilevel model. The front lighting system still relies on the Dual Keen LED Headlight. Also equipped with a turn signal that no longer squints down. Given a barrier with the pull of the headlamp cover line. Looks aggressive and classy.
Adjusting to the front shield, the center panel looks a little bloated. While the tail applies a modern motif. The rear body is filled with a 3-dimensional (3D) emblem that reads Vario 160 (specifically for the ABS type). The impression of elegance becomes even stronger seen from the side.
The back is still supported by a luxurious appearance, because it applies a separate stop lamp and turn signal design. The stop lamp model has changed completely but remains tapered upwards. The special thing is that it is given a muffler cover which is coated with aluminum just like the PCX 160. The sporty impression becomes even more pronounced.
Of all the design changes received, the dimensions are only slightly different from the 150 model. Previously it was 1,919 x 679 x 1,062 mm, now it is 1,929 x 679 x 1,088 mm (LxWxH). The seat height was originally 769mm to 778mm. The wheelbase is now shorter at 1,277, the old model 1,280 mm. The lowest distance to the ground increased by 8mm to 140mm.
The two types marketed have different color variants. For the CBS type, Active Black, Grande Matte Black, and Grande Matte Red paints are available. Of the three options offered, only Active Black has a sporty stripe. It appears on the front shield on each side and on the rear body panel.
Grande Matte Black is true to its name, a combination of doff red with black. Meanwhile, Grande Matte Red has all black color on her body. And this type does not use a 3D appendage that says Vario 160, but only a silver sticker.
For the ABS version, there are Active Black, Grande Matte Black, and Grande Matte White colors. Just like the CBS version, only Active Black is given a sporty graphic in silver and gold. The remaining two use the same theme, paint the doff model. Unlike the bottom type, it has a 3D emblem on the rear body panel and burnt titanium alloy wheels.
