The 6G version of the Honda Activa was introduced two years ago on 15 January 2020 and the company at that time brought this scooter with a lot of features including the new BS6 engine. In such a situation, the company can now bring Activa again with a new update. Currently, Activa is made available in two variants – 125 and 6G and both get good response.
The company can bring Activa with some technology updates and new features. Recently, many scooters have been brought with modern features, so Honda does not want to be behind, due to which new updates can also be found in it. The Honda Activa 6G is powered by a 109cc air-cooled single cylinder engine. For the first time in Activa, the silent ACG starter has been used instead of the normal starter.
Honda Activa 125 has a 124cc air-cooled engine. This engine generates 8.18 bhp power and 10.3 newton meter torque. Honda Two-Wheeler India is the first company to offer a 6-year warranty on the Activa scooter range. The Honda Activa 6G is being sold in the Indian market in six colours, while the Activa 125 is made available in five colours.
When is the electric scooter coming?
Honda can launch its Activa scooter in electric version. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India may launch ‘Activa’ electric scooter by 2023. According to Honda, the upcoming electric scooter will be ready for launch by the next financial year. Company President Mr. Atsushi Ogata has revealed Honda’s plans to launch a new electric scooter.
It is logical for Honda to use the same name for its upcoming electric scooter. This will make it easier for the consumers to associate with the brand as ‘Activa’ is a reliable scooter of the brand. Honda will develop an all-new electric scooter for the Indian market or use a slightly modified version of its existing electric scooter from the international product lineup.
The company had increased the price of Activa in April. Honda Two-Wheeler India has increased the prices of two of its most popular scooters Activa 125 and Activa 6G. The prices of both the scooters have been increased from Rs 500 to Rs 1,000. After the price hike, the Activa 125 and Activa 6G will now be available at a new price of Rs 74,989 and Rs 71,432 respectively.
Honda Activa is the company’s popular scooter and the company does not want to face any reduction in sales due to new models, due to which it is probably going to bring a new model. Now it has to be seen what updates the company brings to this scooter.
