Those graphics were everything. The rest of the bike is worth nothing.
Anyway, I guess that gives me a chance to have a go at your scooter with some black spray paint.

Congratulations. Now get rid of the matt black wheels.
Those wheels are as it came. Maybe they will get a chrome or alluminish lip...And when did I ever put "GRAPHICS!!!"

Congrats Cyrus. Hope you have fun with this little errand runner. Ride safe and please dont try any stunts with it to impress the Women of the colony . i'm in line for a ride too, better than getting a bicycle.

Congrats on the purchase. I would have preferred a white and black combo. No offence, but this gives it kind of a taxi look. But hey, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. So if you liked the combo, then that's all that matters. May you have a wonderful time zipping around the city and logging many miles with it.

Congrats!

Your ride looks much simpler now, it looked much more sportier with the graphics.

If you want a mean look paint that thing with matte black and if you want it to be flashy get some good graphics in chrome.

AAA sticker on a Dio looks kinda odd.

Maybe something like a Repsol is more like it. Myself had a modded Kinetic Honda long time ago.

Guys, I wanted to book a Dio coming weeked for my wife. I liked the Yellow and black colour. Banaswadi Honda says there is a waiting period for 2 months on this colour. Can anyone confirm if this is correct or do I need to check with other dealers?
