2012 HONDA Aviator Scooter
When Honda re-launched its popular Honda Aviator, they decided to offer it in two variants: the Honda Aviator Deluxe and Honda Aviator Disc. From the name, we can easily imply that the main difference between those variants is the braking system.

Both variants come with an upgraded 109cc 4-stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, OHC engine, capable of generating as much as eight horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 0.9 kg-m (6.5 lb-ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. This scooter also comes with an electric and kick-start option and a V-matic type of transmission.
