Honda Activa-i Top Features: The new Honda Activa-i was launched recently at Rs 50,010 ex-showroom (Delhi). The latest model comes with a few cosmetic updates and feature-additions, including five new colours.
The Activa-i is based on the Honda Activa 5G but is sleeker and lighter. It is powered by the same 109.19cc engine as of the Activa 5G and makes 8bhp and 8.94Nm of torque. The scooter is mainly aimed at young women riders. That said, here are some top features of the Honda Activa-i you should know about!
Dual-Tone Paint Schemes
One of the most prominent highlights of the Activa-i is its dual-tone paint scheme. The colours and graphics add a feminine touch to the scooter and extends to the mirrors too. The scooter is available in four dual-tone colours: Blue+White, Red+Black, Pink+White and Purple+White. There is also a single-tone Metallic Grey colour.
CBS With Equalizer
Honda employs their Combi-Brake System (CBS) in almost all of their products. The system applies the brakes on both wheels even if only one brake lever is pressed. The Equalizer in the system ensures that the brake force is distributed evenly without compromising on riding safety.
4-in-1 locking was first introduced in the 2018 Honda Activa 5G. The system is a simple yet convenient addition. It enables the rider to unlock the seat without the need of taking out the key. Simply turn the key to the ‘Seat' position and press the switch beside to access the underseat storage.
The Honda Activa-i, like most other products from the brand, employs HET (Honda Eco Technology). HET ensures the best balance of performance and fuel efficiency through ideal engine combustion.
Front Parcel Hook
Though the loading area and front apron of the Honda Activa-i are smaller compared to its rivals or the Activa 5G, the scooter comes with a parcel hook.
Other Features Of The New Honda Activa-i
In addition to all the above-mentioned features, the Honda Activa-i also comes with the following:
- Mobile charging socket*
- Storage box on apron*
- ‘Vibrant' instrument cluster
- Metal muffler protector
Thoughts On The Honda Activa-i
The Honda Activa-i is not a popular product from the Japanese two-wheeler brand, when compared to the Activa 5G – the top-selling scooter in India. The Activa-i also looks quite different from the regular Activa and as mentioned earlier, is a more feminine product. However, the scooter is still a Honda and has got good reliability.
