Honda is planning to replace the Aviator soon with a new scooter.
In this BS6 transition, many products have been discontinued. One of the scooters to be removed from the Honda lineup is the Aviator which won’t get a BS6 compliant engine to make it through.
The only Honda scooters that have been updated to comply with BS6 norms are Activa, Activa 125 and Dio. The Aviator was positioned above the Activa for its premium features on offer but it shared the same engine.
The Honda Aviator was doing well in the market initially but the premium scooter eventually got overshadowed by the Activa itself. Honda is now expected to fill the void in the premium 110cc space with a new scooter.
The premium scooter will be based on the new platform from the Japanese bike maker on which the Activa 6G, Dio and Activa 125 are based.
The 110cc premium offering will share most of the mechanicals with the Activa 6G but the power is likely to be tuned higher than the Activa.
The new scooter is expected to come with alloy wheels, disc brake and digital instrument cluster. It will be positioned above the Activa 6G in their lineup.
