Scooters are getting increasingly popular and Honda being the leader isn’t stopping coming out with new scooter. Having majority leadership in the 110 cc’s segment including the Active, Honda is now looking to boost its market share in a 125 cc segments. It already has the Active 125, but now it has launched a new product, the “Honda Grazia”.
The styling of the Grazia resembles the Dio a lot. In fact, this looks like a bust-up deal. But there are certain elements which make the Grazia stand out. Honda has hit the ball out of the park this time with the Grazia finally giving you a revolutionary feature.

A full LED headlight on the Honda Grazia:
First in its segment, it has six LEDs – two for the parking, two for the low beam and two for the high beam. And on high beam, all six likes glow. The taillight too is an LED. And, this scooter has a lot of edgy panels giving it a very sporty look.
Honda Grazia Features (Body and Design):
The Honda Grazia gets all digital instrument cluster. The digital instrument cluster apart from the tachometer gets an adometer, a fuel level indicator, a sppedometer, a clock and a single trip meter. The mirrors offer a very good view of what’s behind unless you’re wearing a riding jacket.
The footboard area is reasonably spacious and there’s a hook to carry a bag. Under seat storage is 18 liters which is decent enough, but unfortunately a full face helmet will just not fit. One gripe that we have with the Grazia is the fact that it doesn’t get an external fuel filler lead however opening the seat is a cakewalk. A key slot has a button next to it to open the seat which let me remind you is also a personal segment.
The leather perforated seat is quite widely giving comfort for both rider and pillion. It has a small globe box on the left side under the handlebars, which has a provision for a charger and can easily put your smartphone. The overall build quality is very good just what you would expect from a Honda.
Engine and Performance of Honda Grazia:
The Grazia is powered by the same engine that does duty on the Active 125. This motor has decent power and torque on offer. But what really shines here is the low end performance. The motor is quite punchy when you’re riding in the city and as a decent mid-range too. It has the top speed of 90 KM/H. Being a Honda, it’s very refined and smooth and doesn’t have any vibrations at all. And it also sounds pretty good.
The acceleration on the scooter is very linear and builds up progressive. When compared to 110 CC scooter, immediately realize you are riding something more powerful and fun. The Grazia isn’t heavy and it’s fun to ride too. Thanks to the 12 inch front wheel. The base parent gets steel wheels, while the mid and top gets alloy wheels. However, this scooters softly setup which results in a kind of comfortable ride on uneven road. And this Honda scooter has got telescopic front forks. Ride quality is superb and it absorbs almost everything in its ride. It’s only at higher speeds and at bumpy roads that you feel the softness of the suspension.
In terms of handling, this might not be the best handling scooter. But due to the performance, it’s quite fun to ride. While the base two variants get drum brakes, a top wear and gets a front disc which results in very good stopping power.
Honda being the leader in the scooter segment isn’t leaving any stone unturned to raise its market share. While the Active 125 doesn’t sell as much as the Access 125, Grazia is going change that. This scooter is very promising offers a lot of buyers and it’s very attractively priced. The fact that it has a lot of segment, first features very good performance and splendid ride quality make it a good purchase. Thank you for reading this review.
