Important Activa 6G Features

Let us quickly list the most important ones…

  • Telescopic Shock Absorbers – It took Honda two decades to upgrade Activa with telescopics but finally, the scoot has received better suspension in its sixth generation!
  • Fuel Injection – This has become a norm with every maker in the BS6 regime – ditching carburettor and switching to fuel injection. Like others, Activa 6G is also now fuel injected.
  • Bigger Wheel – Honda has also increased the size of the front wheel to 12 inches. Activas till 5G were equipped with 10 inch wheels at the front. The rear continues to be a 10 incher.
  • External Fuel Cap – With this new generation of Activa, Honda has also introduced external fuel filling. It can be opened through a switch near the keyhole.
Activa 6G features
  • New Engine – Yes, the new Activa 6G comes with an all-new engine which produces slightly lesser power and torque than the outgoing model.
  • Higher Fuel Efficiency – Honda claims that the new 6G is 10 percent more fuel efficient than before. This can be expected considering that it gets fuel injection now in place of a carb.
  • Silent Start – The patented ACG starter motor has percolated to the smaller Activa as well. It ensures quick, silent and jolt-free start every time.
