- Honda Activa 6G will have fuel injection and start/stop technology
- It will get a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster
- Telescopic front forks, alloy wheels and a front disc brake will be added
- Expected launch at Auto Expo 2020
There’s a new Honda Activa in the works, and it will be called – no points for guessing – the Activa 6G. It is expected to launch at the Auto Expo 2020 next February, which should make it available to the public in time to meet the BS Vl emission norms laid down by the government.
First, the styling: the Activa 6G is expected to get a redesigned LED headlamp, and the turn signals will be shifted along with LED DRLs to the front apron, much like the Aviator. This means a return of a headlamp on/off switch, which should make a lot of Activa owners happy. As always, chrome and new graphics will be present as a part of the new design. The instrument cluster will be updated as well. It is already a semi-digital one, but the update will offer more features like Bluetooth capability and even turn-by-turn navigation.
The Activa 6G engine will get a fuel injection system to comply with the BS Vl emission norms, and will also get a start/stop system that will shut the engine off when it idles for a long time. This should help it reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency. It will retain the 110cc displacement and air cooling.
The suspension will be upgraded to telescoping front forks, which marks the end of the decades-long love affair of the Activa with trailing link front suspension. The new suspension will also enable it to fit a front disc brake and alloy wheels. Honda has had these components available to them for many years now, thanks to the Aviator and even the Activa 125, so it is nice that they’re making their way to the Activa 6G. We can expect the 12” front/10” rear alloy wheel combination with the front disc brake of the larger Activa sibling to make it to the 6G.
There will be a significant price increase as well, but it will be in line with the market since all manufacturers will upgrade their products to meet the new emission norms in 2020.
