- Honda Grazia BS6 teased ahead of its imminent launch
- Video reveals sportier design and more features
- Will be powered by the same engine as that of the Activa 125 Fi
Honda has sent out a teaser video of its upcoming scooter, which is certainly the BS6 model of the Grazia. As can be interpreted from the video, the 125cc scooter will get several updates over its BS4 counterpart.
Firstly, the styling of the scooter, which was already sporty, will get more aggressive with sharper lines and creases across its bodywork. The handlebar cowl gets sleek LED DRLs, similar to the Dio, while the two-tone front apron continues to get V-shaped layout for the LED headlamp and turn indicators. The overall design appears to boast of sharper contours from the front to the tail section.
The teaser video also reveals a two-pod fully-digital instrument cluster similar to the existing model, but with a different layout for displaying the information. Since it is touted as ‘Incredibly Intelligent’, expect the console to show a bunch of additional data such as fuel range, real-time fuel efficiency and more. Furthermore, ‘A Quiet Revolution’ text at the end of the video indicates it will get Honda’s ACG silent starter. An external fuel filler cap like the new Dio and Activa 6G could also be available.
Powering the new Honda Grazia BS6 will be the same 124cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine which does duty on the Activa 125 Fi BS6. On the latter, it churns out 8.1bhp and 10.3Nm along with an automatic transmission. The cycle parts are expected to be retained from the BS4 model. It rides on a 12-10-inch wheel combination which are suspended by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by drum brakes at both ends with an optional front disc.
The BS4 model of the Honda Grazia was priced from Rs 62,025 (Standard) to Rs 66,397 (Deluxe) (ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the BS6 model to demand a premium of around Rs 8,000-10,000 over this pricing. In terms of competition, it will go against the TVS Ntorq 125, Suzuki Burgman Street 125, Hero Maestro Edge 125 and Yamaha Ray ZR 125.
