The Honda Cliq was launched in India in mid-2017. It was designed and developed to target the rural market of the country. Thus, it was more practical than visually appealing. Features like 154 mm of ground clearance, 743 mm of seat height, telescopic front forks, tubeless knobbier tyres highlighted Cliq’s practicality.
Some of the other features of the Honda Cliq included:
- Under-seat mobile charging socket
- Wide floorboard
- Luggage carrier
- Combi Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer
- Maintenance-free battery
- Auto Headlamp On
- 3.5-litre fuel tank
The Honda Cliq was powered by a 109.19 cc single-cylinder engine. It was an air-cooled mill which complied with the BS4 emission norms. It delivered 8 BHP of maximum power at 7,000 rpm and 8.94 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. It was paired to a V-Matic transmission. The Cliq had a claimed top speed of 83 km/h.
Unfortunately, the Cliq wasn’t able to reach the sales target set by Honda. As a result, the company decided to discontinue the scooter and not make it a part of its BS6 product line-up. The company recently updated its website and the Cliq is no longer listed online. The CBR 250R also has been discontinued.
Honda has also removed the Aviator, Grazia, CB Hornet 160R and the X-Blade from its official website. As of now, it’s unclear whether these products have been permanently discontinued or their BS6 versions will be launched once the current nationwide lockdown has been lifted.
