Honda Aviator Review
The Honda Aviator shares its engine with Honda Activa and Dio – the 110 cc one. Telescopic front forks are employed for suspension job, and at the rear, there is a hydraulic monoshock. Drum units handle the brake department. Also, for top-end versions, front disc brakes are provided. In its latest update, the LED headlamp gets Aviator signature. Metal exhaust equipment is also fitted.
The Aviator looks are sporty and bold; mainly because it is targeted towards the male audience. A chrome accent leads the indicators on the side. Honda has tried to give it a more posh appeal by painting the seat and floorboard brown. An analog cluster of the instrument, tubeless tires with five-spoke alloys, under seat capacity of 20 liters and a charging socket for mobile are the highlights of the scooter. Combi braking system is provided for all the Aviator models.
However, the question that almost all the scooter buyers face is which one's better, Activa, or Aviator. Both of them are popular, and the Indian market has a place for them. The only significant differences are the looks of the scooters and that the Aviator is bulkier and more substantial than Activa.
The advantage of the Honda Aviator is its comfortability, with large seats, riding experience becomes very convenient, the scooter is durable in build, making it very reliable. The fuel efficiency claim is made of 60 kmpl, a good number for this segment. The major disadvantage involves outdated design.
