Both variants are also equipped with the same 4-stroke OHC air cooled gasoline engine that produces 8.16 horsepower and 8.27 Nm of torque. When driven in highway conditions, the BeAT can reach a top speed of 125 kilometers per hour (kph) and has a fuel efficiency rating of 44 km/L.
Design of the BeAT
The BeAT has a telescopic fork front suspension and a mono shock-unit swing on its rear. It uses a hydraulic ventilated disk brake system on its front wheel and a mechanical leading trailing rear brake system. Honda also made the scooter’s platform wider to provide better comfort and increased legroom. The CBS Type variant has a highly reliable brake system that is accessible through the left brake-handle, which simultaneously stops both the front and rear wheels when squeezed.
This scooter can be started using a kick or electric start system. It has a carburettor fuel system paired with a capacitor discharge ignition (DC-CDI) system. With a dry weight of 90 kilograms and a 3.8 liter fuel tank capacity, the BeAT is one of the most fuel efficient motorcycles on the market.

It has also provided the BeAT with parking locks which stop the motorcycle’s engine automatically when parking the vehicle, helping the driver to place its side stand. To help riders easily start this vehicle on cold mornings, Honda has equipped it with an auto-choke function. This motorcycle also comes with a parking brake lever to replace the traditional foot brakes.
