The Acitva badge because the final a number of years has been synonymous with belief and reliability and these will not be out phrases reasonably than what the gross sales have spoken. The Activa is a money cow for Honda, and therefore, a very powerful product of their lineup. So in its sixth era, the scooter arrives with a number of adjustments each when it comes to options and mechanicals. So with out additional adieu, this is what it is all about.
So earlier than we get into the using bit, let’s simply shortly undergo every little thing that the additional G will get you. Honda says that the sixth gen is an all-new Activa all the way down to its chassis. It will get telescopic suspension and at last comes with a 12-inch wheel on the entrance. However, Honda is just providing the scooter with drum brakes. Also new is an exterior gasoline cap which is a primary within the Activa collection. The new platform offers an extended wheelbase which has helped lengthen the footboard offering extra leg-room.

Coming on to the using, the longer wheelbase has helped the brand new Activa be extra secure and planted throughout turns and conjures up extra confidence to hold extra pace. This together with the brand new 12-inch entrance wheel and telescopic suspension which have improved the using dynamics by an enormous margin.

At the center of it, the Activa continues to be powered by the identical 110-cc engine that now comes with gasoline injection. However, the ensuing further refinement comes at a price of lesser output. So, whereas the gasoline injection has considerably helped with the trip high quality, the scooter slacks a bit relating to efficiency.
The new telescopic suspension is a laudable enchancment over the earlier era’s standard ones and does job in absorbing most undulations on the street. Now, as we talked about earlier than, Honda is just providing the scooter with drum brakes on each variants, which we wished included an choice for disc too.

So to sum it up, if you happen to have been to ask if the 6G continues to be an Activa regardless of all of the BS-VI adjustments. I’d very a lot say sure. All the adjustments have led to a worth hike of virtually Rs 7000 to 8000 which is majorly as a result of addition of gasoline injection and is fairly cheap. The engine is way more refined and has what it takes to retain its present place within the phase.
