These are 10 things you need to know before buying a Honda Scoopy

 Honda Scoopy last received a refresh on November 11, 2020. PT Astra Honda (AHM) gave birth to it in an all new and successfully made the appearance of this scooter even more attractive to own.

These are 10 things you need to know before buying a Honda Scoopy

1. Dimensions of the Latest Honda Scoopy Enlarged

First, referring to the official motor specification data, the size of the latest Honda Scoopy is now enlarged. The overall length is 1,864 mm, width 683 mm, height 1,075 mm and wheelbase 1,251 mm.

The old Honda Scoopy generation has a length of 1,847 mm, a width of 686 mm, a height of 1,061 mm, and a wheelbase of 1,257 mm. The change in dimensions also makes the seat height of the Scoopy increase by 2 mm or to 746 mm. Meanwhile, the lowest distance to the ground (ground clearance) also increases by 2 mm to 145 mm.

2. New Engine Offal But Decreased Output

Still referring to the specification sheet, the all new Honda Scoopy still packs a 110 cc engine. However, in this new generation, the cubication is actually larger to be 109.5 cc from the previous 108.2 cc.

Investigating, it turns out that the engine used is the same engine as that of the all new Honda Beat and New Genio. Now the bore x stroke size is 47 x 63.1 mm, which was originally 50 x 55 mm. Then the compression of the engine also increased to 10:1 from the initial 9.5:1.

Unfortunately, from the use of the new machine, the output on paper actually decreased. From the maximum power, for example, from 8.9 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, it has now become 8.8 horsepower at the same engine speed. While the peak torque also drops to 9.3 Nm from 9.4 Nm at 5,500 rpm engine torque.

3. The Volume of the Fuel Tank Becomes Bigger

In the new generation Honda Scoopy, Honda engineers calibrate the fuel tank volume. Now the latest Scoopy can drink up to 4.2 liters of gasoline or up 0.2 liters from the previous version.

The manufacturer claims that with the new fuel tank capacity, Scoopy can record fuel consumption of 59 kilometers per liter when the Idling Stop System feature is on. This is very economical, guys!

4. New eSAF Lighter Frame

In this latest Scoopy, the empty weight is reduced quite well, ranging from 95 and 94 kilograms (specifically for the Smart Key type). In the previous model the weight is fairly heavy to 99 kilograms.

This is thanks to the use of the same new chassis as the BeAT and Genio. AHM named it the eSAF (enhanced Smart Architecture Frame) chassis. The manufacturer says, with the application of this frame, the weight of the bike is reduced by 8 percent and promises good stability

5. USB Model Charging Dock

His name is a motorbike for young people, of course he wants everything to be practical and easy. When it comes to charging your device, you don't need to bother carrying around an adapter anymore, the latest Scoopy already uses a USB type power outlet.

Its position is still in the slot on the left deck which is complete with a cover drawer. So you don't have to worry about your smartphone getting wet when riding in rainy conditions.

6. Item Hook is Safer

The manufacturer also provides a new model of hook or hook in the all new Scoopy. Now use a locking model at the top, so that when you carry items that are hung on the components, they don't come off easily.

A minimalist but highly functional change isn't it? Especially considering that Scoopy is a commuter motorbike, the majority of its use is for daily mobility.

 7. More Sophisticated with Keyless

All new Honda Scoopy now comes with more sophisticated technology. There is now a keyless option with Anti Theft Alarm, a device similar to that of the PCX and Vario 160.

It's just that if you want to have a Scoopy with keyless features, the variants you have to choose are Scoopy Stylish and Prestige. While the 2 variants below it, Sporty and Fashion still pack conventional key models.

8. Change the Lights to Make the Look More Classic

The most striking changes and make it more classic are in the components of the front and rear lights. The design is consistent with using a rounded model, but now tends to be more oval. What's interesting is that the turn signal is now separated.

The new headlight design is maximized by the use of LED projector technology. While at the back, the lamp model is perfectly round, but interestingly, even though it is still a halogen, it resembles an LED lamp. 

9 Complete Features

basically Scoopy has a different target consumer from Genio. Although both have a stylish appearance, Scoopy was created to have a higher class through design, especially the completeness of features.

Above, we have explained that the latest Scoopy is keyless to the LED projector lamp in front. Moreover, this scooter has also used an informative digital-analog panel meter, ACG Starter, ISS, Side Stand Switch, and has also used new 5-spoke wheels with a 12-inch diameter that provide a better driving style.

10. Types and Prices of All New Honda Scoopy

And the last thing you should know is the type options and selling price tag from Scoopy. This is important to adjust to your budget and needs. The all new Honda Scoopy consists of four variants: Sporty, Fashion, Stylish, and Prestige. Especially Stylish and Prestige have adopted Smart Key alias keyless.

Check out the maintenance costs for the All New Honda Vario 160 for 3 years

 The All New Honda Vario 160 was officially launched on February 2. Its presence gives new energy and style in a revolution in design, technology and advanced features. This 160cc 4 valve eSP+ scooter is more sophisticated with a variety of features, and is prouder with a new look and sensation like a big automatic.

Check out the maintenance costs for the All New Honda Vario 160 for 3 years

As a sporty and high-performance scooter, the Vario 160 is increasingly superior with affordable maintenance costs for its users. Regarding maintenance costs, especially for the first year, users do not need to dig deep into their pockets. Because it only requires maintenance costs of around IDR 208,500, with service intervals every 4,000 km or every four months.

First do the service at 1000 km / 1 month. Here, free MPX2 oil and service facilities are still provided. Further at 4,000 km / 4 months. During this period, free service is still provided, but for the purchase of MPX2 oil, you have to spend Rp. 45 thousand.

Furthermore, at 8,000 km / 8 months there is still free service. Oil MPX2 IDR 45 thousand and axle oil IDR 15 thousand. In this period, customers only spend a budget of Rp. 82,500. Then at 12,000 km / 12 months the free service is still valid. The costs incurred only pay for MPX2 oil of Rp. 45 thousand, spark plugs of Rp. 69 thousand and radiator draining of Rp. 35 thousand. The total cost for one year is only Rp. 254 thousand.

For the fourth fifth service and so on, the service fee is no longer free. The service fee at the official dealer or AHASS is Rp. 120 thousand and that is outside the CVT service. If you add Rp55 thousand for CVT maintenance, so the total is Rp. 175 thousand, and there is an oil fee of Rp. 58 thousand to Rp. 233 thousand for one service.

Furthermore, the motor oil should be changed every 4,000 km. So, if for example following the recommendation it can reach 12,000 Km a year, we just divide it by 4,000 Km, then the count is 3 times servicing and changing the oil every year. For each service, the money we have to spend is around Rp. 233 thousand, and if you multiply it by three it becomes Rp. 699 thousand for a year.

If we calculate it again in the following year, then the cost we spend for service and oil is Rp. 699 thousand, multiplied by two, which is Rp. 1.398 million. Then after being calculated for three years, the service and oil change costs that must be incurred for the All New Honda Vario 160 are IDR 254 thousand (first year) plus IDR 1,398 (next two years), becoming IDR 1,652 million.

For the record, these costs do not include the replacement of other fast moving components. Such as brake pads for IDR 180 thousand (a pair of ABS variants), IDR 69 thousand for spark plugs, IDR 75 thousand for air filters, IDR 15 thousand for axle oil, IDR 150 thousand for drive belts, IDR 10 thousand for brake fluid and IDR 18 thousand for radiator water. This is because periodic maintenance is required.

For information, the All New Honda Vario 160 was officially launched on February 2, 2022. Its presence provides new energy and style in a revolution in design, technology and advanced features.

The Advantages of the Latest Daihatsu Xenia That Competitors Don't Have

 Even though the Daihatsu Xenia is now not as popular as it used to be, it is still the twin of the Toyota Avanza, the king of the streets. Frankly, I can't understand why the sales of this car are not as fast as the sales of its brother. Though the two products are not much different. Even under the skin, they both stand on the same frame structure and even use the same engine and drive system.

All the advantages possessed by the Toyota Avanza are also owned by this low MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle).

3. Flexible Seating with Sofa Mode

Knowing very well the Daihatsu Xenia and Toyota Avanza are not vehicles that will be used for their own pleasure, this Japanese car manufacturer presents a three-row configuration of seats with flexible settings.

The folding method of the seats in Sofa Mode provides an optimal resting position for the rear passengers on long trips. Interestingly, the latest generation of Daihatsu Xenia has a method of folding the third row seats flat on the floor. This method provides more luggage space that the previous generation Daihatsu Xenia did not have.

4. Daihatsu New Global Architecture

Daihatsu Xenia now stands on a global platform. So, the standard of driving feel for the Daihatsu Xenia has now gone up to the international class. Developed with the latest technological concepts, DNGA is a global platform that is also used in the latest Daihatsu cars.

Uniquely, even though it stands on a global frame structure that makes the driving feel international, the Daihatsu Xenia's design is actually thick with Indonesian elements. Looking futuristic, where is the Indonesian element?

According to Daihatsu, this latest generation Xenia was designed by engineers from the R&D (Research and Development) Center team of PT Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM). Of course you still remember Mark Wijaya, the maestro who gave birth to Daihatsu Ayla. This team is also responsible for the latest Daihatsu Luxio, Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios designs

Eid with the BMW 320i Dynamic in Jakarta

 Eid is synonymous with returning home to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. Especially after two years of being hit by a pandemic and people being banned from going home by the government. However, not a few people in the capital stay and celebrate without leaving the city. Spending time in the city alone can also be a moment to enjoy driving activities.

Eid with the BMW 320i Dynamic in Jakarta

Lebaran Drive program with the entire editorial crew of OTO Media Group this time, I chose to celebrate Eid with the BMW 320i Dynamic. I happened to be spending the Idul Fitri holiday in Jakarta. You could say this is an ideal choice of vehicle type to enjoy the quiet streets of Jakarta.

The BMW 320i Dynamic is a trim or entry variant of the current BMW 3 Series model line coded G20. This variant comes between the 320i Sport and 330i M Sport alternatives. BMW Indonesia officially launched this premium sedan in October 2021, as well as being one of the most affordable BMW models at the moment.

Although the four-wheeled automotive market is currently increasingly dominated by MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) and SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) models in the country, the presence of sedans is still worthy of consideration. Considering that sedans are among the oldest types of vehicles in the automotive industry, of course there is no need to doubt the quality of their driving. Especially considering the fact that first-class technology and comfort from premium manufacturers are still relied on through sedan models, such as the BMW 7 Series and Rolls-Royce.

Jakarta's traffic has drastically changed to become very smooth, especially on the day before Lebaran. The perfect moment for a leisurely drive around the city. Although the 3-Series has a strong affiliation with a sporty character, this sedan, nicknamed The Ultimate Driving Machine, is also very supportive of being a comfortable car for daily use.

Many consider that the best driving sensation from a BMW can be felt in the 3-Series. This compact sedan with a dynamic driving character and advanced technology then I invited to wade through the toll roads in the city. Just like non-toll roads, the majority of toll roads in Jakarta are also very smooth. This makes it possible to invite the 320i Dynamic to go a little faster. Although not up to the maximum, the pace of the Series-3 in high speed is very steady. The speed is stable, the steering wheel feels very alive, the engine is responsive, really spoils the driver.

Not only enjoying the quiet streets, I also invite Series-3 to see new landmarks in the center of Jakarta. This opportunity is also to capture Series-3 into beautiful and aesthetic photos. Moreover, with the red color on its flashy exterior, it often steals the attention of other motorists, despite its status as an entry-level variant.

The Bavarian manufacturer equips the 320i Dynamic with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger, which keeps a pretty fierce output of 184 hp and 300 Nm. This premium sedan assembled by Sunter is also equipped with a number of advanced features such as infotainment BMW Operation System 7.0, Reversing Assistant, Park Assist, as well as Speed Limiter.

Next, we will discuss in more detail the uniqueness and features of this BMW 320i Dynamic. We will also tell you about the fun of traveling around Jakarta, such as culinary tours or visiting other interesting locations.

7 Tips for Cleaning Cars to Avoid Viruses

 Even though we don't have a virus or clean, the name virus can come from anywhere. It can be from shoes or sandals worn when traveling, jackets, or so on.

Therefore, cleaning the vehicle has become a mandatory agenda for the owner before the virus sticks to the dashboard.

So that the results are optimally clean and make the car safer and more comfortable to use when traveling alone or with family, here are some vehicle cleaning tips that you can practice at home.

1. Start from the dashboard

The dashboard is one of the parts that is most often dusty due to the large number of items placed there. Call it tissue boxes, cellphones, to cigarette packs that may have been dusty before being inserted into the dashboard.

So that the dust does not build up, you should clean it using a duster or a slightly damp cloth. Avoid mixing water with alcohol because this can make dust stick to the dashboard.

2. Continue to the car carpet

Next is the car carpet, the part that is most often dirty from being trampled on. Since the carpet is made of rubber, cleaning it is much easier.

Simply remove the carpet from the car, then stand it vertically so that the dust does not stick. Can also use a vacuum cleaner or mix soap and water, so all the dust is removed perfectly.

3. Clean the car seats

Still in the interior of the car, next is cleaning the car seats. It's not like cleaning car carpets because the seats are easier to clean. Dust and dirt that sticks are also clearly visible.

Take a vacuum cleaner or rag that has been dipped in a special liquid. Remember, it's not a liquid that has alcohol in it, okay? Because alcohol is believed to damage the surface of your favorite car seat.

4. The part touched by the hand

In addition to the three points above, in fact there are still many parts in the car that often come into contact with hands. There is a car steering wheel, windshield, to the transmission lever. These parts must be cleaned to be free from viruses.

Best of all, you don't need a vacuum cleaner to clean it. Enough with a duster and duster, then the area that often comes into contact with the hands becomes cleaner. Viruses can stay away from the car.

5. Rearview mirror

If the interior of the car is in order, now proceed to the exterior. There is a rearview mirror which is often a place for dust and dirt to stick due to pollution scattered in the air.

Although it is often dusty, cleaning the rearview mirror is not a difficult and time-consuming job. Mix water and soap, then dip a washcloth and clean the rearview mirror thoroughly. Guaranteed viruses and bacteria that had been attached will be lifted.

6. Clean the legs of the car

One part that is often overlooked by vehicle owners, namely the legs of the car. Even though this part can be said to be the dirtiest because it is directly contaminated with dust and dirt.

Although basically can not spread the virus into the interior of the car itself, but it would be nice to be cleaned regularly. Thus, the performance of the vehicle is maintained properly.

7. Luggage

The last part that should not be forgotten is the trunk of the car. Where you often put heavy items when traveling long distances. This section cannot be said to be virus-free because the items included in it are not necessarily clean.

Therefore, clean the trunk regularly. Sweep the carpet, pick up the trash that is scattered in the trunk, and wipe it if needed
