HONDA GRAZIA TEST RIDE & REVIEW
From a quick look around what can be observed is that it has a lot of resemblance to Honda Dio from side profile especially. The front consists of a lot of lines and wide all-LED headlamp with big indicators. The lights are bordered by muscular creased panels and a V-shaped matte black plastic. One unique thing in here is the placement of Honda decals which is under footboard.
At rear chunky split grab rails along with A large tail lamp and integrated indicators completes the styling aspects. Alloy wheels also add extra refreshing bits to the superb existing design. Overall Grazia has a sporty, muscular and contemporary urbane design. Build quality of plastic body, switchgear and paint are top notch.
TORQUEY & POWERFUL
Honda Grazia is powered by a 124.9cc, air-cooled, four-stroke mill produces peak power of 8.7PS @ 6,500rpm and a peak torque of 10.54Nm @ 5000 rpm. This is blessed with Honda Eco Technology (HET) giving the best-in-class mileage and power. Power delivery at low revs and mid revs is powerful in nature and responds quickly enough according to the throttle inputs. The engine is coupled to V Matic (Variomatic) or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) which does gear changing matters.
Now in refinement section engine is ultra refined and silent. It returns about 50-55km/l in city conditions and around extra 5kms in highways. In order to wake up the engine, self and kick start options are available. Top speed of the scooter is around 85km/h which is more than enough within city limits.
SUPERB SUSPENSION SYSTEM
The front section of the Grazia consists of telescopic forks while rear section features spring loaded hydraulic type along with underbone chassis. Due to the presence of telescopic forks, the suspension setup is fantastic and handles bad roads with ease and comfort. Softgrip handlebars fall into riders arms way and overall setup including placement of footpegs have made ergonomics comfortable one.
The saddle is well cushioned while remaining long and wide enough to accommodate the rider and pillion with ease. Nissin’s 190mm disc brake (optional) upfront and 130mm drum brakes along with CBS (Combined Braking System) do provide superb braking feedback. The 12 inch (front) and 10 inch (rear) tubeless tyres from MRF provide good grip and are confidence inspiring.
CBS braking system with equaliser, 190mm front disc brakes, fully digital instrument console with eco speed indicator, LED headlamp & position lamp, telescopic forks, alloy wheels with tubeless tyres are the most noteworthy ones among the lot. Along with this 4-in-1 lock with seat opening switch, front glove box with mobile charging socket, 18l under seat storage, front and rear hook along with some cosmetic features completes the features package.
