CD 70 Engine and Transmission

The Honda CD 70 provides an excellent blend of Japanese high-tech engines of the ’80s. With the introduction of Euro 2 technology in 2012, the company made numerous changes to the shape of the engine and carburettor. A 72cc engine displacement with a 4-stock single-cylinder OHC air-cooled engine powers it. Generating a maximum horsepower of 5700 rpm and 500 rpm torque delivers maximum fuel economy and emits less smoke. It has a top speed of 97 kilometres per hour.

Honda CD 70 consists of 4-speed constant mesh transmission with multiple wet clutch plates with markings for gear range. Shifting gears on this bike has a smooth click to it. The final drive is a chain which delivers most of the power generated by the engine to the tire.
