Honda Scoopy 110 automatic scooter spied testing in India
The Scooter is equipped with anti-theft remote key fob, LED headlamps, Idling Stop sytem, etc.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has commenced testing a few of its popular international models in India, indicating that the brand is considering a significant expansion of its local portfolio. The retro-styled Honda Scoopy 110 cc automatic scooter has been spied alongside the MSX125 (Grom) compact motorcycle in Shimla. Both prototypes were not undisguised.
The Scoopy’s interesting styling can be best described as polarizing. The prototype belongs to the latest iteration of the scooter which is currently on sale in Southeast Asian markets like Indonesia and The Philippines.
A massive apron-mounted circular LED projector headlamp forms the core element of the design. The steering-mounted analog-digital instrument console is another design highlight while the rest of the scooter adopts a rather conventional design.
Targeted at young urban audience, the unisex automatic runabout is packed with features such as anti-theft remote key fob, combi-brake system, Idling Stop system, mobile charging port (inner side of the front apron), a 15.4 litre underseat storage box, front disc brake, 12-inch tubeless tyres, alloy wheels, and so on.
The Honda Scoopy is powered by the brand’s familiar 110 cc HET (Honda Eco Technology) air-cooled motor which is mated to a CVT. Power and torque figures stand at 9.1 PS and 9.4 Nm respectively. Suspension duty is handled by telescopic front fork and single-side rear coil spring.
If HMSI decides to launch the Honda Scoopy in India, it would be positioned at the premium end of its market-dominating 110 cc automatic scooter lineup.
