Honda declares new Grazia scooter, images leaked
At the start of this financial year, Honda announced that it would launch four brand-new products for India this year: 2 scooters and two motorbikes. So far, we’ve seen the locally assembled Africa Twin AT go on sale and also the funky Cliq scooter. Now, the firm has revealed that its upcoming third product will be called the Grazia. Very little has been officially revealed about the Grazia at the moment, with the company stating that it is an ‘Advanced Urban Scooter’ and that bookings will be open from October 25 at Rs.2, 000. Though the company has not released any teasers, images of the Grazia have leaked out from a stockyard and there’s a fair amount of detail we can understand from them. For starters, the Grazia is a handsome, sharply designed scooter, but refrains from bordering into the groundbreaking and polarising space of the Navi and Cliq. The large V-shaped headlight, located on the front apron, looks striking and will help the scooter stand out. From the looks of it, the scooter has a large front wheel (which could span 12 inches) similar to the Activa 125.
The Grazia follows the funky, Grom-inspired Navi and the rural engrossed Cliq. And since both those scooters use the smaller 109.2cc engine from the Activa, this time around we might see the bigger engine from the more premium Activa 125. Honda says the Grazia will “create new eagerness with its advanced technology, original industry first features and sharp design lines.” From the spy shots, it’s reasonable to assume that the Grazia will take a more premium stance than the Navi or the Cliq, and this will reflect in the price. We suspect Honda will disclose more titbits of information in the coming days before the full launch, which should be before November 10. Stay tuned!
As stylish as it sounds, the new Honda Grazia looks urban and upmarket. While the engine capacity has not been confirmed, the model is likely to draw power from a 125-cc motor, while the sharp lines lend an edgy arrival to the model. The spy shots also show a wider looking apron and foot-board on the scooter. Other visible features on the Honda Grazia contain alloy wheels, front disc brake with telescopic front forks, Combi-Braking System (CBS), and a dual-tone paint scheme. The scooter will also come with a revised instrument console with a digital display, slightly different from the current set of units seen on Honda scooters. A small storage space will be available left-hand side. Also, expect to see the option of USB charging keeping up with modern times.
