Honda Two Wheelers India has just launched the All new Activa 125 today starting at INR 67,490. It is the price for the standard variant, whereas the Alloy variant will set you back by INR 70,990 and the Premium version by INR 74,490. Mr Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Road, Transport, and Higways was present at the Launch.
Though the scooter gets visual upgrades, there is more than what meets the eye – in terms of many useful and segment first features in the All new Activa
The New Activa 125 is India’s first scooter to get a BS VI compliant engine and the second to get an FI engine. The first, being the Hero Maestro Edge 125 FI. With the launch of the all new Activa 125, Honda has silently started the BS VI revolution in the two wheeler segment. Silently – because, with the ACG starter motor in the new Activa 125, you wont hear the starter motor rumbling to get the engine to life, or annoy your neighbour early in the morning. It is one of the new feature of the latest Activa from the Japanese outfit.
The BS VI compliant engine in the new Activa delivers 8.1 bhp at about 6,500 RPM. It will also be 10% more fuel efficient than the model it replaces – thanks to the Idling start-stop feature. This feature shuts off the engine at traffic signals and whenever the scooter is stopped briefly. Another thoughtful feature is the Side Stand indicator coupled with engine inhibitor. This prevents you from starting the scooter with the side stand on.
The instrument cluster in the Activa 125 gets more informative. You get real time fuel efficiency, average fuel consumption and range/distance to empty readings. In Addition, you also get a service indicator to remind you of the periodic maintenance of the scooter.
Visual updates in the Activa 125 include a sharper looking All LED headlamps, chrome inserts on the panels and a new tail lamps. The new Activa is available in new 4 colors. The overall palette includes the following colors: Rebel Red Metallic, Black, Heavy Grey Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, Pearl Precious White and Majestic Brown Metallic.
