As per the latest developments, Honda has decided to pull the plug on the Aviator and fill its seat with a new scooter.

Honda recently updated its website and took down all the models it hasn't upgraded to BS6, including the Aviator. Earlier it was unclear as to whether the company has permanently discontinued the Aviator. According to the new report, it has, and it plans to fill the void with a new scooter. At the moment, details about Honda’s new scooter are scarce. All we know is that Honda has dropped the Aviator nameplate and will come up with something new for its replacement.

It is being anticipated that the new Honda scooter would be based on the company’s new scooter platform on which products like the Honda Activa 6G, Honda Dio and the Honda Activa 125 are built. Its engine is expected to be borrowed from the Activa 6G which uses a BS6 110 cc single-cylinder mill that produces 7.8 PS of power and 8.79 Nm of torque. However, Honda might tune it in a slightly different state.

As for the pricing, the new Honda scooter would be a bit more expensive than the current Honda Activa 6G which retails at INR 63,912 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
