Honda Activa 6G with an updated BSVI compliant engine launch expected at the 2020 Auto Expo
The Honda Activa is the best selling scooter in India that tops the sales chart every month. Earlier we have reported that Honda has started testing the Activa 6G scooter and it will be launched before April 2020 in India. The test mule of the upcoming scooter was wrapped in heavy camouflage and was caught recently during the homologation process in Pune. Here are the 5 things that you need to know about the upcoming Honda Activa 6G
1. New Connectivity Feature
According to the reports, the upcoming Activa 6G likely to feature an advanced digital instrument cluster that will get a smartphone connectivity feature. The instrument cluster will get turn by turn navigation and call alert feature that can also be found in the TVS Ntorq 125.
2. Updated Suspension setup
The Honda Activa scooter uses an old school trailing link suspension setup towards the front since the very beginning. However, the upcoming Activa 6G will sport a pair of telescopic forks that will replace the old suspension setup as seen on the test mule. The updated suspension setup will help improve the ride and handling quality of the scooter.
3. Redesigned styling
The Activa 6G will feature a redesigned LED headlamp cluster and a different set of LED DRL lamp. The front apron will get integrated side turn indicators while the side body panels will get some sharp creases and new graphics. Expect the scooter to also feature an updated taillamp as well.
4. Updated BS-VI compliant engine
Expect the upcoming Honda Activa 6G to feature an updated 110cc, air-cooled engine. This new motor will also get fuel injection technology and most probably Honda’s new idling stop system. The idle stop system will automatically turn off the engine when the scooter stops at a traffic light or any other brief halts. The motor is again turned on with the twist of a throttle just like Hero Destini 125. This feature will definitely help improve the overall fuel efficiency of the scooter.
5. Better stopping power
Honda will offer a disc brake on the top spec model of the Activa 6G which will help improve the overall braking performance of the new-gen Activa. Moreover, it will also get Honda’s combi-braking system as well for the safety of the rider.
