The Aviator was introduced in the market as the third offering from Honda in the scooter segment. Since this scooter is powered by the same engine that runs in the Activa or the Dio, there is nothing exceptionally different in its performance. However, completely new looks with some added features make the Aviator stand apart from the competition.

An unusual and futuristic design philosophy, which Honda has adapted from the latest version of the Fireblade, adds a touch of muscle to the scooter and targets the adult male buyers. This comes as the most important change in the Aviator as compared to the Activa, which is targeted more towards the female population and the Dio which is more of a youth friendly vehicle.

Honda Aviator

The tried and tested engine ensures good performance and a decent fuel economy. The trademark Honda refinement and reliability is present everywhere on this new-age scooter.

Another thing that sets the Aviator apart from its siblings is its suspension. Though the chassis of the Aviator is almost similar to the one offered on the Activa, it has now been equipped with inverted forks in the front. The twin telescopic front suspension offers better handling characteristics and going around corners is now a breeze.

The Aviator shows great composure while taking high speed bends on roads. The new front suspension has also enhanced the ride quality significantly.

The scooter sports a peculiar wheel configuration with different wheel sizes at front and rear. While Honda has retained the rear wheel size to 10-inch, they have equipped the Aviator with a 12-inch front wheel. The change in the front wheel size has come in order to accommodate the disc brake as a 10-inch wheel would have been too small to house a capable rotor.

The Aviator’s price tag is higher than any of its competitors in the market, however, the features that come packed in a parcel badged with the wing makes every penny spent worth it.

    sir,i want to gift honda’aviator to my daughter on her birthday on 15th oct because she looks at all the scooties in her friend circle and she is extermely interested to have it.but there is no stock available in ur showroom in ranchi and they are not giving a clear pictuire about this matter.so if possible then try to fulfill her dreams.

  • naren

    kindly advice should i go for disc break or regular drum brake for new Aviator scooter cum bike?

    • radhika

      hey naren the only difference between disc and drum is breaking system! i mean if u get disc then when u apply break it quickly stops but drum takes less then disc that mean slow. disc is always better for boys and for girls drum is best.

      • trivi

        i think always go for non disc that is drum espacially for ladies drum is better when compare to disc break.

    • Antony

      The drum brakes are already very power full. Also front and back brakes are joined in the left hand grip. No need for disk.

    • Shanoon

      Go for disc if you are a experienced person handling disc brakes.if u r a rookie then ihe choice is drum….my choice is disc

  • lalitha jayaraman

    I have heard that the mileage as far as aviator is concerned is much less compared to other bikes in the same segment.Since activa is not available and the waining informed by the dealer at vadodara is six months we are forced to go in for aviator .but the negative point about mileage is slightly hurting so the thought of booking or to go for any other model comes in the mind

  • Gaurav K

    it is the best scooter available in india than activa, pleasure, access, etc. in all types. it is stylish more powerfull than all. so get ready to race and win. vroooooommmmm………….

      always go for aviator. its really cool and owesome vehicle in its mileage, performance and avoid back pain. disc of aviator will cost u 58k and drum of aviator will cost u 52k onroad. and second choice will always be hond dio which 46 to 49k. i kindly advice u not to go for any other choices in scooters other then dio and aviator. first is aviator and second is dio. i am 100% sure.

    Hello Mr. Jayesh.
    Honestly i feel Aviator is a man’s scooter. Based on your choices it would be hero honda pleasure as its the least expensive in all the three and looks decent with good mileage. you can also check out the suzuki access 🙂

    Sir,
    Hardly three months have since been completed after purchasing the honda aviator Scooter from KTC CALICUT. Since the starting stage itself the head light shows a great problem for riding .It has only a dim light like parking light and driving at night is impossible. The matter has been taken up with the dealer KTC CALICUT during the first week of Septamber. Unfortunately the problem still persists even after their repair. They have stated that it is a circuit problem.
    They were unable to rectify this. It is requested that unless it is not rectified immediately there is no valid reason to keep it further with me in view of the above. Either you may replace the new scooter if it is a manufacturing defect or arrange to rectify the problem.
    I am very satisfactory about the smooth driving experience wit this Aviator though there is a starting problem.

    Expecting your favourable reply within a week time otherwise I have to proceed further in the matter.

  • n shah

    sir,
    average wise and durability wise which model of honda is better.(DIO, ACTIVA, AVITOR)

    • shridhar

      Hi,

      If you have a good height ie above 5.7 then go for AVITOR. It’s good for those who has a good height.

    • radhika

      aviator is always the best for 100%. good at performance, mileage and avoids back pain.
      go for aviator

  • Sanjay Puri

    Hi, The Aviator is a very nice scooter , we have bought one for our daughter, But I must say the service is pathetic, it is almost two months since we have given the scooter for repairs to your Mahim service station in Mumbai and all we keep hearing is ” the part is not available “. The problem with many companies is to focus on sales, in this case the demand for your scooter far exceeds the supply. One needs to keep the service standards also reasonable levels, please do have your customer care look into this problem. I have met other customers in the service station with similar complaints. Your prompt action on this matter would very much be appreciated. My mobile number is 9820033683.

  • sahil hashmi

    the fibre mask above de head light has a defect it gets detached wen de vehicle gets jerks……….kindly modify it for fixed position n de head light during dim position shud hv an inclined angle so dat de focos thouches de ground at least 15 feet ………….otherwise it vll trouble de opposite vehicle …..but still aviator rocks … n ma mobile no is 09886037619

  • shridhar

    Hi,
    Telling you frankly i purchased honda Aviator three weeks back, i feel its better and good. I suggest you people who has a short height please don’t go for it. As the height of Aviator is high
    good scooter so far, if you want to go for disk break then you need to be very carefull as it only applies for front rare. i can give 8/10 to Aviator. Coming to mileage it’s good

  • Josemon Mathew

    I purchased a grey Honda Aviator on April 23rd, 2011. Excellent scooter! It rides like a motorcycle. Stable and strong. It gives me 50+ mileage. Crossed 1000 kms so far. But I have seen a problem in the speedometer. When it crosses between 20 – 30 km/h, the needle wobbles. The same happens between 40 – 50 km/h. Why is it so? Is it the defect of the speedometer cable or the problem of speedometer itself? postbox10@gmail.com 09995133484

      I hope your problem is resolved, i was planning to go for Aviator Shoud i or change my mind. I am not sure if you are really getting 50+ mileage. People mention here around 40 to 42 mileage. How do you rate Vespa, should i opt for Vespa.. Amit .. amit.chaddha@hotmail.com

      • Manoj

        REgarding the fuel economy the Aviator has 40 Km/PL inside city like Bangalore, but when it is long ride on highway it come to 45-48 km/PL.
        I have tested several time this average.

  • hanshraj

  • DR MOHAN SINGH

    poor experience, the battery was dead one day after 1 year warranty, poor electrical system, poor balance, please think 100 times before buying this bike.
    as compared to honda activa, which i have used for 8 years, this (aviator) is the most stupid piece to befool customers.
    you wont even get the battery in the market or any of the honda outlets.

  • SKN NSK

    Of course, if telescopic struts for the front wheels is required, then people have no choice from Honda – but then why is the bust made protruding ? The ACTIVA looks better than the Aviator
    (my take). I would appreciate if HONDA plans it’s VISION 110 launch here in India at the earliest if it does not want to loose out to SUZUKI’s Skydrive or to models from YAMAHA.

  • Shailen

  • Sanjeev Katoch

    Honda Aviator name seems to be good, but actually trouble. I bought Honda Aviator in March 2010 in gurgaon. I am continously facing troubles such as Battery problem, Kick Jam, Stops anytime on road, Starting problem, Battery unavailability etc ………………(So many).

    Above this service centres are more troublesome. improper servicing, casual labour workers. No body listen your complaints.

    I feel Honda is concentrating to sell products in india, but no body to look after sale service.

    Comapny must take a call to see their dealer performance, customers feedback and make decision thereon.

    My father purchases an aviator.
    Its milage is only 30 km per ltr.
    The engine broke down after 11500 km and in 2 years.
    The dealer said that its due to bad fuel and asked around 4000 for repair.

    It is a bad buy.

  • Ritesh

    Aviator is D BEST scooter in India . As far as Ride Quality & comfort is concerned its awesome .
    quite disappointed by mileage but u get best performance in exchange of few 5-6 kmpl mileage.
    my all other Access owner friends get jealousy on watching my Black Horse Aviator .
    only thing i suffered about is quite less bright headlight which doesn’t makes road more clear at knight time.

    And what is the difference between activa and aviator besides looks and appearances

    • Praveen

      i have been using aviator for 4 yrs and never had problems in electric start.electric start doesn’t works during morning but this problem exist in every other scooters.just on the choke and press electric start it will not give any problem.my aviator gives me around 48-52 km/litre as i drive between 40-60 km/hr speed.

      The difference between activa and aviator besides looks and appearance is the price.aviator is 2000 rs more costly than activa.
      I have driven activa but comfortness is more in aviator.

      if you are a good rider you can overtake many 150 cc bikes as aviator has good pickup and provides power at high speed for quick overtaking.
