The ‘Urban Advanced Scooter’ is Honda’s second 125cc model; to rival Suzuki Access 125.
Honda has launched its new ‘Urban Advanced Scooter’ the Grazia, at Rs 57,897 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Bookings for the new scooter 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.
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. The scooter also features Honda’s Combi-brake System.
The Grazia 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.
