Read on to find out all the details about this new scooter!
Honda To Launch Neo-Electric Scoopy In India?
The scooter is in its fifth generation in Indonesia, and with the patent in India, there is a possibility that it will be launched in India soon.
We had previously reported that In the first half of 2023, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will introduce a brand-new electric two-wheeler, marking the company’s entry into the electric scooter market.
Although the brand has not yet revealed its name, it is highly likely that it will compete in India’s market against the TVS iQube and the Bajaj Chetak.
The new electric two-wheeler will most likely be an electric version of the Activa. The brand is currently working to form a team in collaboration with the engineers of Honda Motorcycle, Japan, and it shall also be marked under the same umbrella.
Honda’s Scoopy: All You Need To Know
On top-spec trim, it comes with Honda’s new smart key, which recently made its debut in India with the Activa. Honda Scoopy’s side body panels are reminiscent of vintage scooters and fit in seamlessly with the overall aesthetic. The 2023 Honda Scoopy is available in a total of 8 colours.
Honda provides contrasting floorboards, apron plastic, side body panel decals, and seat with dual-tone shades. Similar turn indicators to those we saw up front surround a circular tail light housing at the back.
The rear grab handle is tastefully made and follows the contour of the seat. Its retro vibes are enhanced by the exhaust heat guard’s chrome finish. The Honda Scoopy’s componentry is very similar to the Activa’s.
An Indian Activa 6G-like 109.5 cc single-cylinder engine powers the retro Honda Scoopy scooter. Scoopy produces 9 bhp and 9.3 Nm of torque due to its EURO 3 emission compliance rather than its EURO 6 (which is comparable to BS6 in India) compliance. The Activa 6G’s output is only 7.68 bhp and 8.84 Nm.
The Indian market for electric scooters is growing in popularity, which is reflected in the increased interest from new players to enter the market.
