Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) today launched the all-new Honda Grazia 125 cc scooter in Indian priced at Rs.57,897 (ex-showroom, Delhi). With the new Grazia, Honda 2-wheelers is aiming young and urban customers and thus the scooter comes with a lot of style, premiumness and also a host of modern features. Honda opened the pre-bookings for the Grazia towards the end of October and the company has already received over 1000 bookings for the scooter. It goes up against the likes of the Vespa VX 125, Suzuki Access 125 and even Honda’s own offering, the Activa 125. Right now, the new Honda Grazia is the company’s flagship scooter in India. The Grazia comes with a whole bunch of segment first features which include LED headlamps and a fullly-digital instrument cluster. It’s a scooter meant for the urban environment and will be introduced in 35 cities by the end of this year.
The new Honda Grazia is powered by the same capable and efficient 124.9 cc air-cooled, 4-stroke engine that does duty on the Activa 125. In fact, the engine makes the same amount of power and torque at 8.52 bhp at 6500 rpm and a peak torque of 10.54 Nm @ 5000 rpm, and is mated to a CVT automatic transmission. Like other Honda scooters, the Grazia also comes with the corporation’s Honda Eco Technology (HET) that decreases friction in the engine and also aids in improved fuel efficiency.
In terms of appearance, the Honda Grazia has that premium stance that you would expect from a scooter in this segment. The new Honda Grazia looks stylish and upmarket and it comes with many best touches like – dual tone paint scheme, premium quality plastic, chrome design elements for switch gears and more. While the scooter does come with some busy lines along the sides, it does not look all that bad. In fact, we might even say the Grazia maybe looks like a sportier version of the Honda Dio, which has been quite popular among the youths.
Up front, you’ll see that a major portion of the apron is used by the headlight and indicators, flanked by some sculpted lines and a V-shaped matte black panel at the center. Other equipment includes a small visor, a new instrument console with a digital display, a small storage space in the interior panel, and USB charging port in the under seat storage compartment among others. The scooter also comes with auto headlights on (AHO) function, 12-inch black alloy-wheels, 110-mm disc brake at the front, Honda’s combi-breaking system (CBS), and telescopic front suspension, among others. We will also be riding the new Grazia later this week. So, stay tuned for our first impression review of the all-new Honda Grazia 125 scooter and watch the space for more upgrades. We will also be riding the new Grazia later this week.
