Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is working on an all-new 110cc premium scooter. The new model will come as a replacement to the Honda Aviator that was recently removed from the company’s official website. Reports suggest that the Aviator might be discontinued due to its poor sales. The new Honda 110cc scooter will be based on the brand’s new platform that also underpins the Activa 125, Activa 6G and Dio.

Talking about the Honda Aviator, the premium scooter equipped with a 109cc, single-cylinder engine that pushes out a peak power of 8bhp at 7,000rpm and 8.94Nm at 5,500rpm. Some of its key features include LED headlamp and position lamp, metal muffler protector, 4-in-1 lock with seat opener switch, front bag hook, mobile charger, alloy wheels, front disc brake and CBS (Combi Brake System) with equalizer.
