The 2018 edition of the ageing scooter, Honda Aviator has been launched in India. Since its launch, it has received only colour-scheme updates. It is a 110cc scooter, which is placed above the Activa. This scooter gets better suspension then Activa and also gets an optional disc brake. The 2018 Honda Aviator comes in three variants – standard, alloy drum & alloy disc. It also gets a new Pearl Spartan Red colour option. This scooter looks much more premium than the Activa because of its tall stance and elegant colours. However, one problem is that this scooter comes with a half fibre-half metal body, unlike Activa’s full metal body. The scooter now starts at Rs 55,157 (ex-showroom), which is around Rs 1,400 higher than the earlier model. Check out more details of this scooter as you read ahead.
The 2018 Honda Aviator gets feature upgrades too. The new model features a metal muffler protector, a front hook and retractable rear hook. It also gets LED position lamp and headlamps and a 4-in-1 seat opener switch. However, it still continues with the blue backlit analogue instrument cluster. A new design highlight includes an ‘Aviator’ signature inside the headlamps. Other existing features include a mobile charger, alloy wheels, optional front disc brakes, central braking system and telescopic suspension.
For engine purposes, it uses the 110cc HET engine. The engine churns out 8 BHP of power and 8.94 Nm of torque. It is mated to the V-Matic transmission. The highest speed recorded on this scooter is around 82 km/hr. The scooter weighs around 106 Kgs. The fuel tank capacity is 6 Litres, which is much larger than a lot of scooters. The mileage estimated is around 55 KMPL with a total riding range of 330 Kms.
Honda Aviator was launched in the early 2010s and has been a perfect substitute for the Activa. It is taller and gets a telescopic suspension. These two are the main points for people choosing this over the Activa. While Activa still continues with the front hydraulic suspension, this one offers it as an option. The competitors are the same for both of the scooters. They compete with Jupiter, Zest and Yamaha Ray.
