Here is what our experts feel about Aviator
Honda Motorcycle launched the Aviator scooter in India this year. This is the 2018 version of the two-wheeler which has been around for nearly a decade now and is among the bestselling vehicles of the Japanese automobile major. The new Aviator is the company’s latest offering in the affordable 110cc range and sports improved features with additions to the equipment. Honda scooters have traditionally enjoyed great patronage in India, and to celebrate its success, the company launched the gearless Activa. Honda has retained the same engine, which powers the Duo. The features, however, are refreshing and look great on the scooter. The two-wheeler is fitted with the Aviator insignia inside the headlamp. The Activa also has a sturdy metal muffler protector, along with a front hook and a retractable rear hook to enhance the rider’s convenience in traveling.
The 2018 Honda Activa is priced at ?55,157 (ex-showroom), and is available in three options, standard, alloy drum, and alloy disc brakes. It is available in four attractive colour options: Pearl Igneous Black, Pearl Spartan Red, Pearl Amazing White, and Matte Selene Silver Metallic. The Aviator is being branded as a premium scooter in the 110cc space, courtesy the stylish and bold design, which lends the vehicle a noticeable presence on the road. The scooter returns a fuel economy of 60kmpl and 45kmpl on highway and city riding conditions respectively. The great mileage is one of the USPs of the scooter. The Honda Activa has competition from TVS Jupiter, Hero Destini 125, and Suzuki Access 125.
The strong lines on the scooter forge a stylish appearance of the bike. The full metal body and the metallic finished panels ensure that the two-wheeler retains the premium quotient when compared to its peers. It has a strong on-road visual presence and features, a wide front apron. The turn indicators are vertically stacked. They look different and enhance the premium look of the scooter. The Activa’s headlight cluster has an LED unit. The large side panels extend well into the taillight which has a clear lens cluster. The single-piece grab rail is massive and the metal muffler is finished in glossy black. The muffler is now more durable and the alloy wheels on the scooter are finished in brushed sliver. Plastic panels beside the seat have a contrasting brown shade finish.
The Aviator 2018 is powered by a single cylinder, air-cooled 109cc motor which is largely common among all Honda scooters. It outputs 8bhp at 7000rpm, while the torque peaks out at 8.9Nm at 5500rpm. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system and the vehicle is also equipped with the company’s Honda Eco Technology (HET) which offers better fuel economy by reducing the engine friction.
The Honda Aviator 2018 uses disc and drum brakes depending upon the variant. The standard Aviator has 130mm drum brakes on both ends. The top-end version uses 130mm disc brakes at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The brakes are perfect for the 109kg two-wheeler, and bring the vehicle to an instant stop. The lightweight of the scooter ensures easy negotiations around the corners. The Aviator offers a peppy ride on city roads. But like all scooters, it’s not a highway rider. That said, the ride quality of the Aviator is among the best in class. Besides the impressive mileage, performance and reliability are the two major takeaways from the Aviator.
The Honda Aviator is equipped with the Combi-Braking Technology (CBT) system with an equalizer for enhanced brake control. The front suspension is a spring loaded hydraulic system, while telescopic suspension supports the scooter at the rear. The result is a smooth, bump-free drive among any two-wheelers in its class. The alloy wheels are fitted with 90/90 and 90/100 tyres in the front and back respectively. The instrument cluster has an analog fuel gauge and an analog speedometer. Feet comfort is ensured by the ergonomic footrest that helps both the driver and the pillion rider sans any strain. The spacious 20-litre under-seat box offers a decent storage space. The 6-litre fuel tank too is slightly larger than its competitors. The drum alloy version even has a mobile charging socket. The Honda Aviator is a neat scooter that delivers outstanding performance and value for money.
