After scooters like the Active took over the Indian market, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India made the Grazia, which is an automatic scooter. Honda has kept the price of the Grazia at Rs 57,879 (ex-showroom), which is almost the same as the price of the Activa 125 by around Rs 1500. Check out the updated Activa-i for a more affordable option.
Concept and USP
Honda calls it the “Urban Advanced Scooter,” and it’s made for young people in cities who want a quick and stylish scooter. With its all-LED headlight, digital instrument cluster, three-step eco-speed indicator, and combined brakes with an equaliser, the Honda Grazia sets a new standard for scooters. The Honda Grazia has telescopic forks that lead to 12-inch wheels with 90/90-size tyres for better control. The back wheel is 10 inches in diameter and has a 90/100 size tyre. In order to keep up with the times, the Grazia has a pocket for cell phones and a phone charger that can be bought separately. There are six colours to choose from: red, metallic orange, gloss black, white, metallic grey, and metallic blue. In addition to the colour choices, there are also three variant choices. The top-end variant gets disc brakes on both wheels.
Like the Activa 125, the Grazia has a 125cc single-cylinder engine that makes 8.7 PS of power and 10.54Nm of torque. A CVT automatic transmission is hooked up to the engine.
President and CEO of Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, Minoru Kato, said, “The Grazia is the most advanced scooter in its class. It has features like an LED head lamp and a fully digital metre that are firsts in the industry.”
The Aprilia SR150 and the Suzuki Access 125 seem to be its closest competitors. Both of these scooters are also very capable. But the Grazia has some features that are first in its class, as well as Honda’s dealer network and reputation for reliability.
