The 2020 Honda Grazia 125 gets fuel-injection along with some significant engine updates

Engine and Performance

The Honda Grazia 125 gets an updated fuel-efficient engine with a lot of changes, to make it smoother and more efficient. The engine gets programmed fuel injection, along with the silent-start motor, and the fuel is injected into the combustion chamber based on specific engine data and constant feedback from six intelligent sensors, including oil temperature sensor, engine speed sensor, oxygen sensor, air pressure sensor, air temperature sensor and throttle position sensor. The 124 cc engine now puts out 8.14 bhp of power at 6,000 rpm and 10.3 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm. Both power and torque have been marginally sacrificed from the BS4 variant, but the changes to the updated engine with internal component with friction reduction and optimised weight, is likely to make the new Grazia feel more refined, as well as linear acceleration.

Features

On the features list, the Honda Grazia 125 and the TVS NTorq 125 feel much better specced than the Suzuki Access 125 and the Hero Maestro Edge 125. But the list of features also boil down to how usable these features are on a day-to-day basis, and if those features give any significant edge over the others. The most feature-rich scooter here is the TVS NTorq 125, with state-of-the-art gizmos like Bluetooth connectivity, offering missed call and incoming SMS alerts, as well as turn by turn navigation on the instrument console, when paired with a smartphone.

The Honda Grazia misses out on those toys, but is only marginally behind on the feature list, providing a comprehensive multiple information, full-digital display screen. In comparison, both the Suzuki Access 125 and Hero Maestro Edge 125 look somewhat lagging behind in terms of the instrument consoles and other features. The Access 125 has an external fuel filler lid now, but the lack of remote opening makes it redundant, since the rider will have to get down to open it with a key anyway.
