Yamaha Aerox 155 Rival Honda Vario 160 Launched Abroad

The newly launched scooter is renamed Click 160 in Thailand
Remember the radical looking Honda Vario 160? Well, it has made its way into Thailand, albeit under a new name called the Honda Click 160. The scooter was launched at the Bangkok Motor Show along with the new Dax 125 moped. It is priced from THB 63,500, which is approximately Rs 1.44 lakh. Comparatively, the Vario 160 costs an equivalent of Rs 1.36 lakh in Indonesia.
The Honda Vario 160 (or Click 160) comes with a very aggressive bodywork with numerous creases, cuts and slashes, making it by far one of the sportiest looking scooters from the Japanese bikemaker. The Thai-spec scooter features gold finished alloys, enhancing its sporty appeal.
Powering the scooter is a 156.9cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor, linked to an automatic transmission, churning out 15.4PS and 13.8Nm. The engine is also compatible with up to 20 percent Ethanol, complying with the local regulations. Underpinnings include a telescopic fork, single rear shock absorber, disc brakes at both ends with optional ABS, 14-inch alloys with 100-section front and 120-section rear tubeless tyres.

The Click 160 not only looks cool but is also loaded with practical features including a fairly large 18-litre underseat storage, apron-mounted cubbyhole with USB charging port, a smart key, and a fully digital instrument cluster. That said, smartphone connectivity is missing.
All in all, the Honda Vario 160 seems to be a perfect rival to the Yamaha Aerox 155 in India; however, Honda is unlikely to bring it here anytime soon. The silver lining is, Honda might just bring the uber premium Forza 350 here instead. But if you’re looking for a sporty scooter in India, the Aerox 155 is your best bet, followed by the Aprilia SR160.
