The Honda Grazia shares its underpinnings with the Activa 125 but has been developed as an urban and more premium offering over its stablemate. The model gets sharp and sporty styling while the the digital console is particularly impressive. We rode the Grazia late last year and were particularly impressed by its functionality including the dedicated smartphone storage space and the LED headlamp that offers a wide spread. We also liked the premium bits on the including the alloy wheels and the front disc brake. The Grazia also comes with Honda's Combi-Braking System (CBS) that offers more controlled stopping power.
In terms of the powertrain, the Honda Grazia uses the same tried and tested 124.9 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine tuned for 8.52 bhp and 10.54 Nm of peak torque, paired to a CVT unit. The feature loaded scooter has put up a good fight against offerings including the Suzuki Access 125 and Vespa VX, despite a premium price tag starting at ₹ 58,133 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
