Ever seen a Honda Dio scooter used as a music instrument? See it now

Ever wondered what all you can do with your Honda Dio scooter? While some of us will just use it to commute from point A to point B, other might utilise it as a luggage carrier. Some enthusiastic might people might even use it for racing, going on an adventure trip or just perform crazy stunts. The possibilities are endless.

Honda Dio Scooter Music by Chamila Warna Jayalath

One such possibility is to utilise the scooter to create music. Yes! The idea might sound unusual but that is precisely what Chamila Warna Jayalath has done with his Honda Dio scooter. I chanced upon his YouTube video where he uses the scooter to create what he calls, Experimental Sound Design.

As can be seen in the video, the artist from Sri Lanka has recorded sounds from various parts of the Honda Dio. He has utilised the brake levers, the footboard, the engine note, horn, air filter cover and even the contents of the toolkit. The individual sounds were then edited and mixed using a software to create this foot-tapping soundtrack.

The Honda Dio scooter has been a favourite among the youth due to its stylish and edgy design. It also comes in very bright and appealing colours. Even my first ever two wheeler was the Honda Dio. It was a fun scooter to use and I did carry out quite a few modifications on it like adding a Xenon projector light setup with angel and demon eyes. I had also designed vinyl wraps for it. It was a reliable vehicle and I never faced much trouble with it. I sold it sometime back to switch to the Honda Activa 125.

The company recently launched the 2017 Honda Dio with Automatic Headlamp On (AHO) feature and Bharat Stage IV (BSIV) compliant engine. The new model also gets a striking LED Position Light on the front apron and is offered in funky colour schemes. It is powered by a 109 cc Honda Eco Technology (HET) engine that generates 8 hp of power and 8.9 Nm of torque. It is equipped with Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer technology.

So what do you think about Chamila’s music using the Honda Dio scooter? Have you also done something creative your ride or plan to? Do share your thoughts and ideas.
