Honda releases BS6 Grazia teaser
Upcoming scooter will feature updated design, new instrument console
Expected to receive a Rs 7,000-8,000 price hike
Honda has just released a teaser of the upcoming BS6 Grazia, and though the scooter isn’t properly shown, it does reveal that the unit will feature a number of updates over the model it replaces.
For starters, Honda has tweaked the design of the scooter, giving it a sharper stance. The headlight unit appears to be sleeker and is an LED unit. Higher up on the front apron, the new Grazia gets LED DRLs, much like the Dio’s. This handlebar cowl has also been redesigned slightly, with sharper lines and edges. The body panels on the side of the scooter look sharper as well, while the tail section and brake-light assembly have been redesigned, too.
Another significant giveaway in the teaser is the presence of a new twin-pod digital instrument cluster. The larger unit on top consists of a speedometer and tachometer, while the secondary unit seen consists of a clock, fuel gauge and tripmeter. Honda has revealed in its press note that the upcoming scooter will be “incredibly intelligent”, and so we can expect the BS6 Grazia to display more statistics like range and real-time efficiency.
While the teaser does not reveal any technical details, the new BS6 Grazia will share its powerplant with the BS6 Activa 125 – just like on the BS4 scooters. This 124cc liquid-cooled engine produces 8.3hp and 10.3Nm of torque, but whether the scooter will get an improvement in performance is not clear at the moment. The last frame of the teaser has the words ‘A Quiet Revolution’, hinting that the new Grazia will be equipped with Honda’s silent-start system.
The BS4 Honda Grazia was priced between Rs 62,025 and Rs 66,397 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Honda Activa 125 and Dio witnessed a hike of around Rs 7,000-8,000 with their updates and a similar increase is expected with the new Grazia.
