Both variants come with an upgraded 109cc 4-stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, OHC engine, capable of generating as much as eight horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 0.9 kg-m (6.5 lb-ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. This scooter also comes with an electric and kick-start option and a V-matic type of transmission.
The Deluxe variant of Honda Aviator comes with the front disc brake and a rear drum brake. The scooter has also a front telescopic fork and a rear unit swing with spring loaded hydraulic damper. In addition, the scooter model now has a bigger front wheel and a 10" rear wheel along with its tires.

Fitted with a 110 cc engine, the Honda Dream Yuga is able to produce 8.5 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and is complemented by a four-speed transmission system. The Honda Dream Yuga has a simple body style, but carries fresh details, particularly the headlamp, the six-cross wheels, and a fuel injection system.
