Popular 2Wheeler maker Honda launched a scooter in its Activa series. Honda Activa 6G a successor of their previous model Activa 5G which we got to see in 2019.
Indian people very much like Honda’s Activa series. The main reason behind this is its design and its price because it provides us a very good package at a very cheap price. It doesn’t matter how many people are in your house and what is their age because Honda designed it in such a way that people of every age group can ride it.
Activa is the highest selling product of Honda and the country’s top-selling scooter, holds a 60% market cap in India.
Honda Activa 6G is a scooter made for everyone in India available at a starting Honda Activa 6g price of Rs. 81,361. The top-end variant price starts from Rs. 84,936. Having both front and rear drum brakes, Honda Activa 6G comes up with a Combined Braking System on both wheels. The job of a Combined Braking System is that if you apply the rear brake then the front brake will automatically be applied automatically according to the situation.
We are getting this feature from the 3rd generation of Activa, so there is nothing new in it, but we can say that we got to see some improvement in this. This Activa 6G scooter has a fuel tank capacity of 5.3 liters and weighs 107 kg.
Honda 2Wheelers India has updated the Activa to comply with the BS6 emission norms. The Indian government now mandates all vehicles to be BS6. The updated feature list includes a silent starter, an engine start-stop switch, an external fuel filler cap, a dual-function switch that opens the seat, and an external fuel lid.
The biggest upgrade, however, is the addition of telescopic forks at the front which we have never seen before on a Honda Activa. The scooter has a 12-inch tyre on the front and a 10-inch tyre on the rear.
The standard Activa 6G comes with an option of two variants and eight colors. Honda has also added the Activa 6G 20th Anniversary Edition to its portfolio which is slightly costlier than the standard ones.
Honda activa 6G Engine
The Activa 6G is powered by a 109.51cc BS6 engine which delivers a raw power of 7.68 bhp and a torque of 8.79 Nm. This engine also has fuel injection technology which gives more mileage. One more important thing about the new update in the Acitva series is that the capacity of its new engine has been reduced slightly to meet the emission standards. It is also smoother than before. The company claims that the new Activa will get up to 10% more mileage than the previous models.
Starts without engine sound
Honda has launched the new Activa 6G with some new features. It has some multifunction buttons, including a passing and start-stop button. It has both engine start stops from the same suite as a sports bike. What used to happen in such scooters.
If we had to shut down the scooter engine we had to turn it off from ignition but now we can do it with the help of a switch. But the biggest change or you can say the best change that Honda made to Activa 6G is the ACG Starter Silent Motor technology which allows the scooter to start without any engine sound.
Change in Design
Honda made some special changes in the design of the new Activa 6G. It includes the new design’s next apron, which is much slicker than before. The side panel is retained as before with very minor changes. It has LED headlamps with LED DRLs. At the same time, a new big taillight has been given in its rear.
The most noticeable thing in the last part is that an additional fuel filler cap has been installed here. These changes give the new Activa 6G a more premium look. Talking about the size of the new Activa 6G, it has been made slightly larger than its old version. The new Activa 6G is longer, thinner and taller than its older version.
Honda activa 6G Mileage
The company claims that the average mileage of the new Activa 6G will be 55 to 60 kilometers. At the same time, its price is seven thousand rupees more than 5G. In the market, it will compete with TVS Jupiter and Hero Maestro.

Is Activa 6G good for long drive?
It gives mileage of 55 to 60 kilometers and design-wise it looks simple and nice. For carrying small luggage it is a good.
Longer Wheelbase and High Ground Clearance
The wheelbase and ground clearance of the new Activa 6G has also increased. The large 12-inch wheel at the front and three-way adjustable suspension is installed at the back. This allows Honda Activa 6G to run smoothly on bumpy roads as well. Also, the wheel has combi brakes and telescopic focus for suspension.
Further disc brakes have been given in the top deluxe variants. You can say this as a drawback that the disc brake feature is not available to the low models. Activa Series has one more that it gets a 12-inch tire on the front but only a 10-inch tire on the rear. If we get to see both the tires 12-inches somewhere back and forth then it will be even better. I Hope Honda improves it soon. Excluding all these features, the company’s HET technology has been used in the new Activa 6G.
Fuel cap will open as soon as you press the button
The list of features of the new Activa 6G is very long. The company has given a new outward-facing fuel cap, dual function switch and multifunctional switch gear. Apart from this, an external fuel filling cap is also provided. It has an oil tank lid (fuel cap) not inside the seat but outside and is positioned above the tail light. A switch next to the start-stop button under the multifunctional switch features three modes of closing them, with a fuel cap and seat opening. Apart from this, Honda Activa 6G provides a 18 liters of big boot space under the seat that can comfortably place a helmet on.
