Honda has started shipping the BS6-compliant version of India’s most beloved scooter, the Activa 6G
Honda 2 Wheelers India launched the BS6-compliant version of its highest-selling scooter Activa at a starting price of Rs 63,912 (ex-showroom, Delhi) about two weeks ago, and now the deliveries of the Activa 6G have officially commenced.
The Activa is not only Honda’s highest-selling two-wheeler in India but is also the best-selling scooter in the entire country, that too by quite a margin. The Japanese manufacturer managed to ship 1,31,899 units of the Activa in December 2019 alone, which also made it the third top-selling two-wheeler in the same month, behind Hero Splendor and Hero HF Deluxe.
Honda has equipped the new Activa 6G with a 109.51 cc engine with a fuel injection system. The single-cylinder motor puts out 7.68 hp of maximum power at 8,000 rpm, and 8.79 Nm of peak torque at 5,250 rpm. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front, and a new 3-step adjustable unit at the rear.
As compared to its predecessor (Activa 5G), the kerb weight has been reduced by 2 kg to 107 kg, while the ground clearance has been increased by 18 mm to best in class 171 mm. Honda has also increased the wheelbase of the new scooter to 1,833 mm, which has resulted in a longer seat, as well as extra floor space of 23 mm.
The scooter is being offered with six different paint schemes in two variants, namely Standard and Deluxe. The colour options on the new Activa 6G include Glitter Blue Metallic, Pearl Spartan Red, Dazzle Yellow Metallic, Black, Pearl Precious White and Matte Axis Grey Metallic.
The Activa 6G Standard is being offered at a base price of Rs 63,912, while the Deluxe trim comes with a full LED headlamp over the former, and hence is priced at Rs 65,412 (All prices ex-showroom, Delhi). It competes against the likes of TVS Jupiter, Honda Dio, among other 110 cc scooters in India.
Honda is also offering a first in segment 6-year warranty pack with the Activa 6G. The scooter comes with a 3-year standard warranty, and it can be further extended to another three years.
