Honda unveils Activa 125 FI BS-VI scooter

  •  

Honda has unveiled the Activa 125 FI. It is the company's first BS-VI compliant scooter and will be available by the end of the second quarter of this fiscal year. 

The BS-VI version of the Activa 125 is powered by a new 125cc, single-cylinder engine. It uses Honda's PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) and Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) that is claimed to improve combustion and minimize friction. 

Instead of a conventional starter, the scooter uses the AC generator that is used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding to start the engine. The force required to start the engine is reduced by the Swing Back feature which rotates the engine in the opposite direction and by slightly opening the exhaust valves.

Honda has also redesigned the shape of the inlet port to produce tumble flow that is claimed to improve combustion. In addition to a compact combustion chamber, the Activa 125 FI gets an offset cylinder, lightweight and compact crankshaft and piston.

The Activa 125 FI comes with a new instrument cluster with a digital readout that gives real time information about the range, average fuel consumption and real-time fuel economy. It displays Total Trip, clock, ECO indicator, service due indicator and side stand indicator. The scooter also has an engine inhibitor which prevents the rider from starting the engine if the side stand in engaged.

The updated Activa 125 comes with an LED headlight with LED position lamps. It has a front glove box, integrated dual function switch and an external fuel lid. It comes equipped with the Combi-Brake System (CBS) and has a 3-step adjustable rear suspension.
