Honda two wheelers India have unveiled the Activa 125, India’s first BS6 compliant scooter. The scooter comes with a 3+3 Year warranty for peace of mind and packs in a lot of features. Some of the its features, being segment first will make you want to own one. Let’s take a look at them.
Silent Start System
The biggest feature in the Activa 125 is the Silent Start System. The ACG motor used in the electric start setup, gives you a silent starting mechanism, or should we say, an experience. Put the thumb on the starter button and all you hear is the engine coming to life. You wont hear the starter motor rumbling to get the engine to life, or annoy your neighbour early in the morning. You don’t get this feature in any other motorcycle or scooter in India.
Side Stand Indicator with Engine inhibitor
One time or the other, we all ride in a hurry. So much so that we forget to take off the side stand. The new Activa 125 has a side stand Indicator, which is coupled with an Engine inhibitor. This will prevent you not only from starting the engine with the side stand on, but also save you from the mishaps that you might end up with – by riding with the side stand down. Very thoughtful feature.
Informative instrument cluster
The instrument cluster in the Activa 125 gets more informative. You get real time fuel efficiency, average fuel consumption and range/distance to empty are some of the information you can get from the new console. In Addition, you also get a service indicator to remind you of the periodic maintenance of the scooter.
Fuel Injected Engine
The Activa 125 is the second scooter to get a fuel injected engine. If you’re wondering, Hero’s Maestro Edge 125 is the first scooter to get an FI engine. It offers a better throttle response and an increased fuel efficiency
Automatic Engine Start-Stop function
Another noteworthy feature is the automatic engine start stop function. This feature shuts down the engine automatically when the scooter is halted and the engine is running for a certain amount of time. This certainly helps is saving fuel – and money.
