2019 Activa 125 price is about 11% to 15% higher than the older model. But it comes with better fuel efficiency and many new features…
After showcasing it in June this year, Honda has officially launched Activa 125 FI which also goes onto become India’s first Bharat Stage 6 model from a mass manufacturer. Honda informs that the new scooter is equipped with 26 new patent applications and some fresh new features.
The new Activa 125 is powered by the same 124.9 cc single-cylinder engine which is now fuel injected. It produces 6.10 kW (8.29 PS) of peak power at 6500 rpm, which is slightly lower than the current model (6.34 kW/8.62 PS at the same rpm). It churns a max torque of 10.3 Nm @ 5000 rpm which is again slightly lower than 10.54 Nm of the older model.
Unlike the current model, Honda informs that the new PGM-Fi (fuel injected) motor will return 13% better fuel efficiency than before. New Activa 125 FI is also equipped with premium features like, ‘silent’ start system with ACG, idling stop system to save fuel, first-in-class side stand indicator with engine inhibitor (doesn’t allow engine to start while the side stand is engaged).
There is no change in suspensions and braking system and the scooter continues with telescopic front suspension and 3-step adjustable rear shock-ups. Braking is handled by an optional 190 mm disc upfront and a 130 mm drum at the rear on tubeless tyres.
Coming to its physical aspects, this BS VI model is 36 mm longer, 3 mm wider and 19 mm taller compared to the older model. Apart from the addition of chrome accents on the side panels and the front apron of full metal body, the 2019 Activa 125 comes with new LED headlamp with reflectors, apron-mounted glove box and an external fuel filler cap.
There is a fresh digital analogue meter which displays side stand indicator, range, existing and average fuel consumption as well as real-time mileage.
