Activa 6G BS6 price increment is roughly Rs 7700 over the older Activa 5G. But it has received significant new features, including a new engine.
At an event in Mumbai, Honda has officially launched its new Activa 6G. And this is probably the biggest update the scooter has received ever since its debut in 1999 in India.
First, let us talk about the features the new Activa comes with. Activa 6G gets telescopic shock absorbers for the first time ever after two decades, fuel injection, bigger 12 inch front wheel, external fuel cap, pass light switch, silent engine start, increased ground clearance etc.
Activa 6G Engine
Surprisingly the engine has also been changed. It now sweeps 109.51 cc of displacement instead of 109.19 cc of the older Activas. It has a bore x stroke of 47 x 63.1 mm instead of 50 x 55.6 mm of the outgoing Activa 5G.
Despite the introduction of a new engine, both power and torque have dropped negligibly. The new Activa 6G churns 5.73 Kw (or 7.80 PS) of peak power at 8000 rpm and 8.79 Nm of max torque at 5250 rpm. For reference, the Activa 5G produces 5.86 Kw (nearly 8.0 PS) of power at 7500 rpm and 9 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. Owing to fuel injection, Honda claims that Activa 6G will be 10 percent more fuel efficient than before.
