Honda 2Wheelers India recently rolled out its first BS6-compliant two-wheeler – Honda Activa 125 FI. Now, the Japanese two-wheeler marker is gearing up to launch the new-generation model of its top selling Activa scooter. Called the Honda Activa 6G, the vehicle will see comprehensive design changes and mechanical upgrades. Here, we have listed the 6 important things to know to about the new-generation Activa.
One of the major changes will come in the form of BS6-compliant engine. The new Honda Activa 6G will use the BS6 version of the tried and tested 109.19cc HET air-cooled engine that’s good for 7.96PS and 9Nm. Rumour has it that the scooter might get the fuel injection technology along with the new idle stop system. The latter one automatically switches off the engine during a stop and switches it on with a throttle push, enhancing the vehicle’s fuel economy.
Similar to the BS6 Honda Activa 125, the Honda Activa 6G might come with the Bluetooth smartphone connectivity features. It will provide an access to music, messages, calls and contacts stored in your mobile phone. Read – Honda To Launch Royal Enfield Rival In India

Design bits such as new body graphics, revised front apron, chromed side body panels and new side turn indicator will add more to its new look.
