The upcoming Grazia will expand Honda’s reach in the 125cc scooter segment, and will be positioned as a stylish alternative to the Activa 125.
A few weeks back, Honda officially announced the Grazia’s arrival in India, and commenced its bookings for Rs. 2,000. The company describes the upcoming Graia as an advanced urban scooter that is tailor-made for the young and confident cosmopolitan India of today.
Set to be launched on November 8, 2017, the teaser shot of Grazia reveals its large front apron housed headlamp, which reminds one of Honda’s Dio. In fact, the Grazia, just like the Dio, is a youth-targeted scooter. However, the former is only available with a 109cc engine. The Grazia is said to draw its power from a 125cc engine producing 8.6bhp and 10.12Nm - the same motor that powers the Hodna Activa 125 as well.
Furthermore, the Honda Grazia is expected to come with telescopic front suspension, semi-digital instrument cluster, alloy wheels, and an option of a front disc brake. Reports also suggest that the Grazia will sport a 12-inch front tyre.
If these rumoured specs turn out to be true, the Grazia will be Honda’s second offering in the 125cc scooter space. Going by the specifications, we expect the Honda Grazia to cost between Rs. 55,000 - 60,000 - ex-showroom. This new scooter will compete in the Indian market with other scooters like Suzuki Access 125, Vespa 125 and Mahindra Gusto 125, and even its own cousin - the Activa 125.
