Honda has just launched the Activa-based Grazia automatic scooter in India. It’s priced at Rs. 57,897, ex-showroom Delhi, making it the priciest Honda scooter sold in the country. The Grazia has been launched in three variants – Standard, Deluxe and Alloy. The Deluxe and Alloy variants are priced slightly higher, at Rs. 62,269 and Rs. 59,867 respectively. Bookings of the scooter have been open for a few days now, and deliveries will start immediately.
The Grazia is powered by the same 125 cc, four stroke engine that’s used on the Activa 125. This motor makes 8.5 Bhp and 10.5 Nm, and is paired with a CVT automatic transmission. Top speed stands at 85 Kph, which is par for the course. 130mm drum brakes are standard on both wheels and so is Combi-braking. A 190 mm disc brake offered as an option on the Deluxe variant. Alloy wheels are also optional while steel wheels are standard fare. Also read: Bajaj-Triumph to challenge Royal Enfield
Tubeless tyres ( a 12 incher up front and 10 incher at the rear) are standard across the line-up. The scooter weighs 107 kilograms and has a fiber body. Ground clearance is rated at 155 mm which is just about adequate while suspension duties are taken care of by telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear. The scooter gets a 5.3 liter fuel tank, which should be enough for a 200 kilometer range.
In terms of features, the Grazia gets a segment-first LED headlamp. Other interesting bits include a mobile charging point, front glove box, and a fully digital instrument cluster that also has an ECO mode indicator (to help the rider figure the most fuel efficient way to ride). Underseat storage is rated at 18 liters, and this should be enough to swallow a couple of half helmets or a full helmet. One of the sharpest styled Honda scooters, the Grazia will take on the Suzuki Access 125 and the upcoming TVS Jupiter 125.
