Honda will soon recall its best selling scooters comprising the Activa 125, Aviator and the Grazia for a specific fault. This recall pertains to a specific bolt in the front fork of the scooters. The said bolt is said to be excessively hard. Honda service centers across India will check, and replace this bolt if necessary. The recall will be carried out at no cost to the customer, and Honda dealers are expected to get in touch with customers soon. 56,194 units of the Activa 125, Grazia and Aviator are said to be affected in the latest recall.
While the Activa 125 and Aviator are automatic scooters that were launched in India a few years ago, the Grazia is a brand new flagship scooter from Honda, and was launched here quite recently, in end-2017. The Grazia is already a big hit for Honda, and sits at the top of the company’s automatic scooter line-up. The Grazia and the Activa 125 share a 125cc four stroke engine that produces 8.5 Bhp of peak power and 10.5 Nm of peak torque. A CVT automatic gearbox is standard on both scooters.
The main differences between the Activa 125 and the Grazia is that the former is conservatively styled. The latter is much more funkier looking, designed as it is to appeal to younger buyers. The Grazia also comes loaded with more technology such as an LED headlamp – a first in class feature – and an analog-digital instrument cluster. Telescopic front forks, a front disc brake and 12 inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres are the other key features on the Grazia.
The Aviator, on the other hand, shares its engine and transmission with the Activa 5G. This means it gets a 110cc four stroke engine that produces 8 Bhp of peak power and 8.77 Nm of peak torque. The Aviator’s prices start from Rs. 52,796 ex-showroom Delhi. The Activa 125 and the Grazia are much more pricier, with their respective prices starting from Rs. 57,633 and Rs. 58,133.
