Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India today unveiled Activa 125 in BSVI guise, ahead of the April 2020 deadline. The all new Activa 125 BSVI developed with as much as 26 new patent applications and will be available for sale towards the end of 2nd quarter of 2019-20 at a price hike of 10-15% over the BS IV version of Activa 125.
At the heart of Activa 125 is Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 125cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine boosted by Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP). A performance accelerator to the HET engine, Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology optimizes energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimizing friction with a silent start & a smooth eco-friendly engine. The scooter also gets Honda ACG Starter that starts the engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there is no gear meshing noises, claims the company.
The Honda ACG starter also ensures for comfortable frequent operation of idling stop system that automatically switches the engine off at traffic light and other brief stops, eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption and resulting in lesser emission. Engine can easily be re-started with simple twist of the throttle. Activa 125 gets Programmed Fuel Injection(PGM-FI) that injects the right amount of fuel in engine cylinder based on specific engine data and also improvised tumble flow & compact combustion chamber which produces tumble flow by optimising inlet port shape and using reverse flow phenomenon, without adding additional components leading to combustion improvisation together with compact combustion chamber.
In addition to redesigned 18 litre under-seat storage space, the New Activa 125 BSVI gets a front glove box which provides additional storage space. It also comes equipped with a unique integrated dual function switch for unlocking the seat & opening external fuel lid offering convenience to the rider. Making every ride on new Activa 125 BSVI comfortable and convenient experience is the Combi-Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer and 3-step adjustable rear suspension.
