2019 Honda Activa BSVI Scooter

The new Honda Activa 125 BSVI is developed with as much as 26 new patent applications. At the heart of Activa 125 sits the Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 125cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine boosted by Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP).

The Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology optimizes energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimizing friction with a silent start & a smooth eco-friendly engine. The Unique Honda ACG Starter starts the engine jolt-free via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there is no gear meshing noises.

Two new mechanical features lead to engine start without applying much force – the first being efficient utilisation of decompression with slightly opened exhaust values (at the beginning of compression stroke) followed by the Swing Back feature which rotates the engine in a slightly opposite direction which allows the piston to take a ‘running start’, making it easier to start the engine with a small amount of power.

The Honda ACG starter also ensures for the comfortable frequent operation of Idling Stop System an another first for Honda models in India. The Idling Stop System automatically switches the engine off at traffic light and other brief stops, eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption and resulting in lesser emission. The engine can easily be re-started with a simple twist of the throttle.

Programmed Fuel Injection(PGM-FI): The name given by Honda to a proprietary digital electronic fuel injection system for internal combustion engines which injects the right amount of fuel in cylinder based on specific engine data, available since the early 1980s. Direct fuel injection into the combustion chamber through the nozzle generates more refined power delivery, better response to a cold start.

Honda has also developed the world’s first tumble flow technology through the integrated die-casting process. It produces tumble flow by optimizing inlet port shape and using reverse flow phenomenon, without adding additional components leading to combustion improvisation together with a compact combustion chamber. Offset Cylinder, lightweight compact crankshaft & piston, reduce overall engine friction & weight impact.

The 125cc scooter also comes with a new digital analogue meter with 3 new real-time informatics like Range (displays distance one can travel with existing fuel in the tank), Average (for overall fuel consumption display) & Real-time Fuel Efficiency for rich riding experience.

The meter displays details like Total Trip, Clock, ECO Indicator and Service Due Indicator with an On-Board Diagnostic feature of Malfunction light which alerts the rider in case of serious malfunctions in the vehicle needing immediate attention.

The new Activa 125 also gets a Side Stand Indicator with Engine Inhibitor. This feature is a first in the scooter segment and prevents engine start while the side stand is engaged enabling a convenient and carefree ride.

Along with the advanced technology and new features, the Activa 125 BSVI also gets a new look. The scooter comes with a full LED headlamp and restyled signature LED position lamps. It gets a premium chrome finish on the front and side panels which are complemented by embossed 3D Activa 125 logo on the taillight.

In addition to redesigned 18-litre under-seat storage space, the new Activa 125 BSVI gets a front glove box which provides additional storage space. It also comes equipped with a unique integrated dual function switch for unlocking the seat & opening external fuel lid offering maximum convenience to the rider.

The scooter comes equipped the Combi-Brake System (CBS) with Equalizer, telescopic front forks and 3-step adjustable rear suspension.
Also for the first time in the Indian two-wheeler Industry, Honda will offer a special 6 year warranty package (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty) on Activa 125 BSVI.
