2013 Honda Aviator

Posted on by  

The Honda Aviator is a no-nonsense scooter that has a lot to love. Despite its small displacement engine, the Honda Aviator comes with a pretty sporty design language and we especially like the sweptback front lights.

Once on board you are met by a handy handlebar fitted with easy to read controls and a pretty spacious seat which is combined with a set of roomy foot rests. Needless to say, that the riding position is of course, upright and comfortable.

The Honda Aviator is powered by a fuel efficient air cooled, 4 stroke, single cylinder, OHC engine with a displacement of 109cc. Fire up the engine and you’ll be rewarded with a maximum power of 6 Kw (8 bhp) at 7000 rpm and 8.77 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. To offer a hassle free riding experience, the scooter was fitted with a smooth V matic transmission.

Verdict

Overall the Aviator is a great scooter for any rider that loves this segment of vehicles. It looks great is fairly efficient and comes with a pretty good price too.

In terms of handling the scooter’s front end inspires enough confidence to make you feel safe behind the handlebar when dealing with tight corners at moderated and high speeds. Though, the rear end won’t inspire the same amount of confidence despite the relatively stiff suspension.

On the other hand the big front disc and rear drum brakes provide best in class stopping power.

As far as the engine is concerned the Aviator’s refined and user friendly 109 cc unit is able to put out enough power to help you deal great with the city traffic.
