Many of the products were withdrawn during this BS6 process. One of the scooters that will be dropped from the Honda range is the Aviator that will not have a BS6-compliant engine to do so.
Activa, Activa 125 and Dio are the only Honda scooters that have been modified to follow BS6 norms. For its luxury features on offer. So the Aviator priced above the Activa but used the same engine.
Initially, the Honda Aviator was doing well in the industry. But ultimately the Activa itself dominated the luxury scooter. Now, so Honda expected to fill the gap with a new scooter in the premium 110cc space.
The luxury scooter will be based on the Japanese bike maker’s latest model. This is based on Activa 6 G, Dio and Activa 125.
The luxury version of 110cc will share much of the dynamics with the Activa 6 G. But the performance will possibly tune higher than the Activa.
Also, I hoped the latest scooter would come with alloy wheels, disk brake, and optical instrument cluster. It will so be placed in their lineup for the Activa 6G.
So, speculations surrounding the Honda Aviator’s discontinuation have proven to be valid. As per a new media report, the 110 cc Luxury scooter has been axed. And it will replace by a new Honda scooter.
Recently, Honda updated its website. And deleted all the versions it did not upgrade to BS6, including the Aviator. Earlier it was uncertain if the organization had withdrawn the Aviator indefinitely. It has and plans to fill the hole with a new scooter according to the latest article. Specifications of the new Honda scooter are reportedly scant. So, what we hear that Honda removed the nameplate for the Aviator. And so will come up with something new to replace it.
The new Honda scooter supposed to based on the company’s latest scooter platform, on which products such as the Honda Activa 6 G, Honda Dio, and the Honda Activa 125 designed. It assumed that the engine will borrow from the Activa 6 G which uses a single-cylinder BS6 110 cc mill and produces 7.8 PS of power and 8.79 Nm of torque. Honda could balance it in a slightly different state though.
