New Upgrades :
The 2023 variant consists of a new graphic set which differentiates it from previous model. This is the only noticeable difference in both the motorcycles. But there is one very major noticeable difference and that is price. Honda CD70 now costs just under 120,000 rupees which is in imaginable. No one in his wildest dreams ever thought that Honda CD70 will ever cost above 100,000.Honda CD70 is available in two color options, red and black. It also comes with extended warranty up to 3 years on top of 1 year or 12 month warranty.
This is mainly due to poor economic conditions of Pakistan and lack of local development. Despite being in production for 4 decades Honda has failed to completely localize the machinery and still has to import some important spare parts for the CD70. Also because of inflation the prices have gone high.
Fuel Efficiency Improvement :
Honda CD70 is popular for the fuel efficiency, smaller capacity motorcycles are usually designed to be fuel efficient but the CD70 sill uses a slide carburettor which isn’t much fuel efficient at higher rpms. Still it manages to deliver around 50kmpl but Honda claimed it to be 70kmpl.
