Aside from an updated BS6 motor, expect the Honda Grazia to sport a refreshed and sharper design and more features. The Grazia is likely to demand Rs 8,000 more than its predecessor.
Earlier in April, the BS6 norms forced Honda Motorcycles and Scooter India (HMSI) to take the Grazia off their official website. Now, the company has just released a teaser image, hinting that its launch is around the corner. The Japanese manufacturer first introduced the Grazia in 2017, and it's being updated for the first time since then.
If the teaser images are anything to go by, the 2020 Honda Grazia has been redesigned and now gets an edgier design. Just like before, it continues to have an LED headlight, but it now has a sleeker design. There are two small strips of LED DRLs on the handlebar cowl as well. While the outgoing model looked bold, this new one is likely to be sharper in its overall design. The new Grazia continues to come with a fully-digital instrument cluster, but it has been updated. The official social media post from Honda claims that the new scooter is ‘incredibly intelligent’, hinting at a more tech-packed offering. Other design changes include redesigned side panels and reprofiled taillamps.
Just like other two-wheelers, the Grazia too will make a shift to fuel injected motor. As before, it will share its heart with the BS6 Activa 125, which is powered by a 124cc fan-cooled fuel-injected motor that produces 8.1bhp and 10.3Nm. The Grazia too is expected to come with the silent start-stop function. Expect the suspension setup, wheels, and brakes to remain mostly unchanged.
Honda is yet to announce the official launch date of the new Grazia. When it hits the market, expect it to be priced at around Rs 8,000 more than the model it replaces.
