Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has announced that its recently launched Grazia scooter has crossed 15,000 unit sales in a matter of 21 days. The bookings for this scooter had begun a couple of weeks before the official launch that took place on November 8 in India. Going by the figures, one can see that the Honda Grazia is receiving an overwhelming response from the audience in India. HMSI commenced the manufacturing of Honda Grazia scooter in October 2017 and had produced 3,373 units before the market launch in November 2017. The company already has the Activa 125 at its disposal but that is positioned as a family scooter with a touch of style. The Grazia made its entry as a sporty scooter that primarily targets the youngsters. Now, only time will tell if the Grazia delivers good sales numbers to the company for the long run. The company's Activa has been the best-selling two-wheeler since last few years. Besides, the scooter also became the only one to cross 20 lakh unit sales in just 7 months.
The Honda Grazia gets its power from a 125cc, air-cooled engine that comes mated to an automatic transmission system. The refined carbureted motor is good for developing a maximum power output of 8.5 hp along with a peak torque of 10.5 Nm. The braking power comes from a 190mm disc brake upfront along with a 130mm drum brake at the rear. These come coupled to the company's patented CBS (Combined Braking System) technology under which both brakes get applied automatically when the rider presses only the rear brake lever. This is done to minimise chances of skidding and offer an effective braking.
Commenting on the overwhelming response, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, who is the Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at HMSI said, “Loaded with many segment leading features and a fresh styling that stands out, the Grazia has taken the style and performance loving customers by storm. We are overwhelmed by the initial response and are confident that with its expanded scooter portfolio, Grazia will take Honda’s leadership to the next level.”
