Honda Activa Premium Edition gets Gold accents at the front and 3D Gold lettering, gets a new brown seat
Honda has unveiled Activa Premium edition and the model is expected to go on sale soon. Built based on the existing Activa 6G, the new Premium edition gets subtle changes on the outside.
The updates include a new Gloss Metallic Navy Blue shade, Golden coloured wheels, Golden accents at the front, 3D Gold lettering on the panels, and a new polished Brown seat with a matching floorboard panel.
The model, indeed, looks premium and would be a good executive commuter for city duties. The scooter is expected to retain all other aspects from the existing Activa 6G. Expect a premium over the regular scooter.
The existing Activa 6G, which was launched back in January, 2020, is a due for an update as the Japanese maker has the habit of refreshing the Activa every couple of years.
But, still, the next generation model is not in sight yet. So, this Premium edition would be a stop-gap measure till its arrival sometime later this year or early next year.
Since its launch more than 2 decades back, the Activa, the country’s largest selling scooter, has come a long way. From being criticised time and again for not going as per the trend, the Activa is, now, 1 of the most advanced and feature loaded scooters out there.
The current model has enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology, start/stop, integrated starter generator for silent crank up, front telescopic suspension with 12-inch wheel, 3-step adjustable rear suspension, external fuel filler cap, and DC LED headlamp.
In addition, the scooter has full metal body, more floor space and longer seat for added comfort. It also comes with increased wheelbase and high ground clearance.
The Activa is so reliable that Honda is offering a 6-year warranty. Power comes from a 109.51 cc BS 6 compliant engine that produces 7.7 HP at 8000 RPM and 8.84 Nm at 5500 RPM.
The upcoming Activa 7G (next generation model) will improve upon the strengths of the 6G. It could sport all-round LED lighting and fully digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity for a connected experience. There might be mild updates on the outside as well.
Honda might refine the powertrain even further to make it more fuel efficient and silent. As of now, the Activa 6G is priced at Rs. 72,400/- and Rs. 74,400/- (ex-showroom) for the STD and DLX variants.
