UPDATE: Honda has launched the Activa 6G in two variants, and you can read more about it here.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has finally disclosed the mechanical details of the new Activa 6G scooter. The two-wheeler is set to have new connectivity features, and will also be fitted with turn-by-turn navigation. That aside, the Activa 6G may have call alert features like TVS NTorq 125.
The new Activa 6G, unlike other scooters in Honda’s portfolio, will get an external fuel filler cap. Honda may also equip the vehicle with 12-inch alloy wheels. Disc brakes in the front wheel may come as an option.
The Activa 6G is hauled by a 110cc engine. The vehicle has always been supported by the front trailing link suspension system since it hit the streets for the first time. The old-school suspension setup is likely to change in the new model. Honda has indicated that the Activa 6G would be mounted on twin telescopic forks to offer a better ride quality and also lend the vehicle improved stability, particularly on bad roads.
The BS-VI emission norms are set to be implemented from 1 April next year and Honda is expected to tweak the 110cc motor to conform to the new standard. The engine of the new Activa 6G is now expected to have a fuel injection system sans compromising with the performance.
The new Activa 6G is expected to debut at the 2020 New Delhi Auto Expo. The upgraded two-wheeler, when introduced, will face competition from the Yamaha Fascino, Hero Maestro Edge, and the TVS Jupiter in its segment.
The new updates in the Activa 6G will likely to bring a price hike of INR5,000-10,000 over the Activa 5G. The standard version of the Activa 5G has an ex-showroom price of INR54,632.
HMSI recently revealed that a major part of its two-wheeler portfolio will undergo a complete overhaul. This includes components like the engine and chassis.
