At the start of this financial year, Honda announced that it would launch four brand-new products for India this year: 2 scooters and two motorcycles. So far, we’ve seen the locally constructed Africa Twin AT go available as well as the funky Cliq scooter. Now, the company has disclosed that its upcoming third merchandise will be called the Grazia.
Very little was officially shown about the Grazia at the moment, with the company stating that it is an ‘Advanced Urban Scooter’ and that bookings will be open from October 25 at Rs 2,000. Although the company hasn’t released any teasers, images of those Grazia have leaked out from a stockyard and there’s a fair amount of detail we can comprehend from these.
The large V-shaped headlamp, situated on the front apron, looks striking and will help the scooter stand out. The leaked images indicate that the scooter gets a new instrument cluster with a digital readout, some kind of a unique seat-release latch nearby the key slot and a closable cubby with a spring loaded grip that should help keep items like a cellphone safe. There also appears to be a charging outlet, or a provision for an optional charging outlet in this cubby.
Another pair of images indicate that the scooter has a large front wheel (which could period 12 inches) similar to the Activa 125, and we are also happy to view telescopic front forks and a disc brake. There is no ABS ring on display, but the sticker on the scooter confirms that it ships with Honda’s Combi-brake technology. Further premium touches come in the kind of metal foot pegs for the pillion rider.
The Grazia follows the amazing, Grom-inspired Navi as well as the rural-focused Cliq. And since both those scooters utilize the bigger 109.2cc engine from the Activa, this time around we might observe the bigger engine in the more premium Activa 125.

Honda says that the Grazia will “create new excitement with its innovative technologies, innovative industry first features and sharp design lines.” From the spy shots, it’s reasonable to presume that the Grazia will take a more premium stance compared to Navi or the Cliq, and this will reflect in the price.
We suspect Honda will reveal more titbits of information in the coming days prior to the complete launch, which ought to be before November 10. Stay tuned!
