After the announcement to implement the BS-IV (Bharat Stage IV) emission norms and AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) by the Government of India, all two-wheeler manufacturers in the country are upgrading their models with compliance to the upcoming emission norms. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter has now launched the updated Aviator scooter in India, starting at Rs 52,077, ex-showroom, Delhi. Honda will update its entire existing and upcoming models with the BS-IV emission norms and AHO before 1st April, 2017.
The company has launched the 2017 Honda Aviator in five versions, namely; Aviator with drum brake, Aviator with disc brake, Aviator with drum brake (BS IV), Aviator with drum brake and alloy wheels (BSIV) and Aviator with disc brake (BSIV). The updated Honda Aviator scooter is also available with the Automatic Headlight On (AHO) safety feature, wherein when a rider switches on the ignition, the headlamp remains on. This feature informs other riders and drivers on the road about the oncoming two-wheeler by increasing the scooter's visibility.
Besides this, the two-wheeler maker has not made any changes and the scooter is powered by the existing engine. The 2017 Honda Aviator 109.19 cc BS IV engine produces 8 hp of maximum power at 7,000 rpm and churns out a peak torque of 8.94 Nm at 5,500 rpm and is paired to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox.
