Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) is all set to launch the Honda Activa 6G scooter tomorrow (i.e. 15th January, 2020). It will be the third BS6-compliant model from the Japanese two-wheeler maker in the country. Ahead of its official launch, the details of the vehicle have leaked online.
As per the leaked document, the Honda Active 6G will be slightly less powerful than the current generation model. The updated version will use a 109.51cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine meeting the new BS6 emission norms. Read – Honda To Launch Royal Enfield Rival In India
While the 5G delivers power worth 8 bhp with 9 Nm, the Honda 6G will return a peak power of 7.68 bhp. The updated BS6-compliant motor has been boosted with Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) with Honda Eco Technology (HET).
The Honda Activa 6G is likely to get an ACG starter as we have seen in the BS6 Activa 125. The idling stop system automatically switches off the engine at the traffic light or a brief stop to reduce fuel consumption and results in lesser emission. The updated model will also get a new all-digital instrument cluster with fuel readout and a trip meter reading. Read – Honda Forza 300 Scooter India Launch On The Cards
Honda will also improve the braking performance of the scooter. The new Honda Activa 6G will come with front disc and rear drum brakes, which are further assisted by CBS (Combi Braking System). The vehicle will also get new telescopic front and monoshock rear suspension unit.
The new lighting system and body graphics will make it look more refreshing. The Honda Activa 6G will feature a newly-designed LED headlamp with LED DRLs. Other design highlights will include revised front apron, 12-inch alloy wheels, new side turn indicator and chrome side body panels. Read – Is Honda Activa Electric Scooter Coming To India?
