Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India has officially discontinued the Cliq model from their Indian product lineup. The Honda Cliq will not be receiving any BS6 updates in the future as well.
Honda had already confirmed the discontinuation of the Cliq last year. They had stated that there are no plans of updating the Honda Cliq to the BS6 emission norms. However, the scooter was present on the website, with Honda trying to sell off the last remaining units left in stock.
However, with the BS6 emission regulations finally being implemented on the 1st of April 2020, the scooter has officially reached the end of its life cycle. The main reason why Honda decided not to update the Cliq was its low demand and even low sales figures.
The Honda Cliq was aimed at the entry-level scooter segment in the Indian market. However, with better products such as the Dio and the Activa on offer, the Honda Cliq failed to garner any interest.
The scooter was powered by the same 109.19cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, which also powered other Honda scooters. The engine produced 8bhp and 8.94Nm of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission.
However, the Honda Cliq isn't the only model which the company has removed from their website. HMSI has removed all BS4 models from its list, this includes both bikes and scooters. Although certain models such as the Honda Grazia and the CB Hornet 160R are expected to make a return after receiving a BS6 update
The remaining models listed on the Honda website have already been updated to comply with the BS6 emission norms. In fact, Honda was the first two-wheeler manufacturer to introduce a BS6 model, this was in the form of their Activa 125. Since then, the company also introduced the SP125 motorcycle, apart from updating other models such as the Unicorn, CB Shine, Activa 6G and the Dio.
Thoughts On The Honda Models Update In India
With the implementation of the new BS6 emission norms, no manufacturer can sell or register BS4 vehicles in India anymore. Honda even announced that all unsold BS4 models will be taken back from the dealers.
