With the rising demand of scooters in the market, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has launched another scooter in the market. India’s number 1 scooter manufacturer has launched the Cliq priced at Rs. 42,499, ex-showroom, Delhi. The Cliq is a unique looking, rugged utility scooter. The Cliq is based on the Honda Navi but looks quite chunky.
The Cliq gets a large front apron which rises quite high. The scooter gets a large seat with good storage underneath. The scooter gets tubular metal grab rails that add to the utility aspect of the scooter. Honda Cliq is aimed at the rural markets where it will solve many utility purposes. The Cliq is shorter and narrower than the Activa or Activa i and is lighter by 6kg from standard Activa.
The Cliq also features a low seat height of 743mm making it very easy to ride. Honda says it is a unisex scooter and the female riders will enjoy the low seat height and the low kerb weight of the scooter. The Cliq, however, gets only 3.5-litre of fuel tank, which is lower than the Navi and Activa.
Aimed at the rural market, Cliq gets many unique features like block pattern tyres for better grip. The floorboard is wide and there is an optional carrier to increase the space further. The Cliq also gets Combi-Braking System as standard. Other standard features include mobile charging point, tubeless tyres and a maintenance-free battery.
The scooter is powered by the same 1.09.19cc engine that powers the Activa and the Navi. The engine produces a maximum power of 8.04 Bhp and peak torque of 8.94 Nm. Honda says that the scooter can reach up to 83 km/h.
Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Focused at up-country customers with a progressive mindset, CLIQ is a perfect blend of Practicality, Versatility and value for money. Breaking the price barrier of automatic transmission on two wheels, only Honda as the market leader in automatic scooters with its unparalleled economies of scale & assured Trust, could challenge traditional preferences by bringing this kind of disruption in the 100-110cc segment.”
