 The TVS Ntorq speaks for itself with better power output than the Grazia. The Ntorq engine feels peppy and torquey while the Grazia is a silent performer in the segment.  

How quick is the Honda Grazia for your daily commuting needs?

For the daily commute, the Grazia is a scooter to look upon. It offers a seat height of 766 mm and turns out to be accessible even for tall riders. The legroom is wide and the seats are very comfortable. The seats are well fitted to carry a pillion rider comfortably.

 The Grazia gets telescopic front forks that deliver up to 80 mm of travel and comes fitted with a single shock absorber at the rear. The suspension setup is marvelous and doesn’t look like compromising on bad roads. 

How sure-footed are the brakes?

The top-end Deluxe variant of Honda Grazia gets Disc brakes in the front as standard. The braking system works seamlessly with Honda’s combined braking system, ensuring effective control over the scooter. The 12-inch front tyres and 10-inch rear wheels with tubeless tyres are also inspiring. However, we would have appreciated a larger wheel on the rear just like TVS Ntorq 125.

How subtle looking is the 2020 Honda Grazia?

Sharing underpinnings with the Activa 125, the Grazia has received a genuine upgrade in terms of design and styling. The all-metal model has been replaced by a plastic one. It makes the scooter more stylish and keeps weight lighter at 107 kg. The headlamps appear to be inspired by the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. The front nose is sharp with aggressive corners. The Grazia has been offered in six bright metallic colours. 


Aesthetic Features

  • Futuristic headlamps

  • Fully DigitalMeter with Eco speed indicator

  • Glossy front panel

  • Contemporary urbane design

  • Sporty split grab rail

  • Front glove box with mobile charging socket


Even the side profile offers a sharp outlook. The catchy looks resemble the use of carbon fibre at touchpoints. There are all-new black alloy wheels that carry the same design as the Activa 125.

 The rear profile has a different story to say. The taillamps use conventional bulbs, not the LED lights that you find on the rival scooters. Overall, the design is quite likable and distinguished from others. At Least the Grazia looks more sporty than the Dio. 

What are the various safety and class-leading features?

Honda Grazia comes installed with a combined braking system ensuring better grip while riding in the city. The scooter is offered in alloy disc brakes on the standard alloy and deluxe variants. Honda’s HET engine is quite reliable and returns better mileage than the rivals.

How does the competition stack up against Honda Grazia?

Honda Grazia VS TVS Ntorq 125 


Honda Grazia is the only scooter to offer rpm gauge. With such an offering, the Grazia surely offers a modern design and offers good mileage as well. Honda Grazia’s engine is much more refined than the TVS Ntorq 125. If you are looking for a good mileage scooter in this range and willing to shed some extra money then Grazia is a better option than the Ntorq 125. 

Honda Grazia VS Suzuki Burgman Street

 

The Grazia comes with bold colours and turns out to be reasonably aggressive in looks. The scooter looks more like a facelifted Dio and that’s not a bad thing. The LED headlight is designed with sharp edges, giving it a sleek look.  With such an offering, the Grazia surely offers a modern design and offers good mileage as well. The Grazia missies on some basic utility features. Burgman Street can be a better deal to get in. 

Does the Honda Grazia stand a chance against the segment leaders?

Honda Grazia is a sporty scooter with good design aesthetics. The lights on the front and rear are quite bigger than the rivals. The scooter is best fitted for peeps looking for a cool-looking scooter with Honda reliability. As far as the pricing is concerned, the Grazia sits in between the pricing offered by TVS Ntorq 125, and Suzuki Burgman  Street. We feel that Grazia’s pricing is quite reasonable for the features it offers.
