Honda has launched its new ‘Urban Advanced Scooter’ the Grazia, starting at Rs 57,897 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base Standard variant. Bookings for the new scooter, which comes with three trims in total, had begun on October 25, 2017.
The Grazia is Honda’s third new model of the four that the Japanese brand had said they would bring to India in 2017.
The scooter is styled to look like a premium entry and flaunts large, V-shaped headlight on its front apron, dominating its face. This segment-first all-LED headlight promises powerful illumination.
Honda will offer six colours at launch – a metallic orange, a gloss black, red, white, metallic grey and metallic blue. Unlike the Activa 125, the Grazia comes with fibre bodywork.
The premium scooter gets a new instrument cluster with a digital readout, which includes a speedometer, trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge, clock and also a tachometer. The Grazia features a four-in-one lock as well, which includes a seat opener function. It also gets a unique utility pocket meant for mobile phones.
The front end gets a telescopic fork that leads to a 12-inch wheel, where braking duties are carried out by a 190mm disc on the top-spec Deluxe variant. The 12-inch front wheel is shod in 90/90 rubber while the 10-inch rear wheel gets a 90/100 tyre. The scooter also features Honda’s Combi-brake System.
The Grazia weighs 107kg and is powered by a BS-IV compliant 125 cc, single-cylinder HET engine that makes 8.6hp and 10.54Nm of torque, and is mated to a CVT. This is the same powertrain used on the Activa 125, and this makes it the second 125cc scooter in Honda’s existing line-up, the rest being sub-110cc machines. The fuel tank on the Grazia has a 5.3 litre capacity, which should translate to a decent range.
At this price point, the Honda Grazia will face off against the likes of the Suzuki Access 125, which carries a price tag starting at Rs 54,163.
