Here are the 5 things that you need to know about the new Honda Activa 125 BS6
1. Cosmetic updates
The Honda Activa BS6 model may look similar to the BS4 variant but take a closer look and you will realise that it has received a few cosmetic updates. The scooter gets a sharper-looking halogen headlamp cluster and a redesigned front apron.
The side panels feature a new chrome trim element while the taillamp unit too gets a chrome treatment to add a more premium appeal. The Activa 125 BS6 variant is available in four colours – Rebel Red Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, Heavy Grey Metallic, and Pearl Precious White.
2. New Features
The Activa 125 BS6 variant features a ‘noiseless’ starter system. The scooter uses an AC generator/alternator to start the engine instead of a conventional starter motor. The scooter also gets an idling start-stop system that automatically switches the engine off at traffic lights and other brief halts.
It now also gets a fuel filler cap that was missing in the previous generation scooter. The new-gen scooter also received a pass switch and a spacious front glove box.
