Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Honda is testing a new scooter on the Indian roads. Yes, GaadiWaadi has spotted the Scoopy scooter being tested in the country.
Previously it was reported that a new retro-styled automatic scooter from the stable of Honda is likely to hit the Indian road in the current fiscal. Now it looks like Scoopy is the scooter for the Indian market. Apart from that, the Honda Grom was also spotted testing in India.
The Scoopy scooter spotted testing is finished with the dark blue paint scheme and is completely undisguised. The prominent highlight of the scooter is the big round headlamp on the front apron.
The turn indicators are integrated to the headlamp which is surrounded by chrome, giving it a retro look. The rear view mirrors are also round in shape with dual-tone colours.
The overall design of the scooter is retro-styled. The Scoopy draws power from the existing 110cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine producing 8bhp and 9Nm of peak torque. The engine is equipped with Honda Eco Technology (HET).
The scooter features disc brake up front and drum brake setup at the rear. To keep the costs down, Honda might offer the disc brake as an option. The scooter also gets a luggage top box which is likely to be an optional accessory.
The Honda Scoopy is expected to be introduced in the Indian market by early-2018 with a price tag of around Rs 55,000 ex-showroom. The retro-styled scooter will rival the likes of Yamaha Fascino and Suzuki Access 125.
