The BS6-ready Honda Activa 125 will go on sale by the end of this year.
Honda 2Wheelers has finally unveiled India’s first BS6-ready scooter – the Honda Activa 125 FI. Touted as “A Quiet Revolution”, the scooter will see a release by the end of this year. Once launched, the new Honda Activa 125 BS6 will face challenge from scooters like TVS NTorq 125, Hero Maestro Edge, Aprilia SR 125 and Suzuki Burgman Street 125.
The Honda Activa 125 BS6 features the same 124.9cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which is now benefited with the company’s PGM-FI (Programmed fuel injection) technology. Its power and torque outputs stand at 8.52bhp at 6500rpm and 10.54Nm at 5000rpm respectively. The Activa 125 BS6 also gets Honda’s Enhanced Smart Power (ePS) system that claims to maximize efficient combustion and optimize energy output. The scooter comes with a CVT gearbox.
Design and styling of the new Honda Activa 125 BS6 looks quite similar to the previous model. Though, it gets a newly-designed LED headlamp, a side stand indicator and an external fuel filler cap. The scooter also comes with a new instrument console that displays distance-to-empty and real-time fuel efficiency. It also comes with a digi-analouge instrumentation and idle-start stop system. Design bits such as grab rails and tail section are borrowed from the old version. Read – Limited Edition Honda Activa 5G Price & Details
