Honda Cliq Funky Scooter Launched @ INR 42,990
Powered by 109.19 cc engine from Activa and Navi line-up.
Honda Two-Wheelers India has launched an all-new funky automatic scooter ‘Cliq‘ for the Indian market. With two variants priced at INR 42,990 (standard) and INR 43,490 (Delux) respectively, the new scooters tries to make a balance between everyday utility, easy rideability, and quirky styling. The Cliq will be initially available in the state of Rajasthan only, and will be launched in other regions in the coming months.
On the face of it, the Honda Cliq appears to be a ‘hybridized’ Honda Navi, with the frontal styling dominated by the cues of a modern scooter, while the latter section of the two-wheeler giving impressions of a tiny utility bike, a bit like its sibling Navi. The new bike focuses more on utility, thanks to elongated footboard for luggage carrying, along with a rear carrier option and an underseat storage box with mobile charging socket. The upright positioning of the handle bar and longer seat design are quite new as well.
The Cliq is powered by the reliable workhorse of the brand’s scooter range – the 109.19 cc air-cooler, 4-stroke HET engine that generated a max power output of 8 bhp at 7,000 rpm and 8.94 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The spring loaded hydraulic suspension on both the wheels (unlike telescopic forks in Navi) talks about the utility-orientation of this bike, while the 10-inch wheels and slightly lower seating (at 743mm) makes it shorter in height as against Navi. Interestingly, the 90/100 tyres feature block pattern, first in the segment, that is likely to enhance the bike’s versatility with increased road grip.
Other key features in the Honda Cliq includes Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer for enhanced braking safety, Auto-headlamp-on, and self-start. It is available in four paint options – Patriot Red, Morrocan Blue, Orcus Grey, and Black.
