The new Activa retains the same silhouette as its predecessor but promises lower emissions, improved fuel economy and a host of new features as well.

"Much ahead of the regulation, Honda was the first manufacturer in India to start selling mass segment BS-VI Two-Wheeler - the Honda Activa 125 followed by the Honda SP 125. We have already dispatched over 75,000 units of these two BS-VI models across India. Today, as we launch the all new BS-VI Activa 6G, I am confident, it will unleash another "Quiet Revolution" and further strengthen our business expansion in India," said Minoru Kato, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Private Limited.

Power on the new Honda Activa 6G comes from the updated 109 cc single-cylinder engine. The big change is the addition of fuel-injection in place of a carburettor to meet the stringent emission norms and for smoother performance and high efficiency. Power though has seen a slight decrease on the updated engine, which now makes 7.68 bhp at 8,000 rpm, and 8.79 Nm of peak torque at 5,250 rpm. The new Honda Activa 6G is the latest model from the manufacturer to meet the BS6 norms after the Activa 125 and the SP 125.
