The 2020 Honda Activa 6G is going to be launched on the 15th of January. The scooter is going to be BS6 compliant and will get a lot of changes. The Honda Activa is one of the most popular scooters in the world and commands a 57% market share in our country. It has been India’s top-selling scooter and according to Honda’s claim – every second scooter is an Activa. So that is a strong and important legacy for the Activa 6G to uphold. So below we have listed and explained the 5 things we expect from the new Activa. Read further below –
2020 Honda Activa 6G New engine
Honda will be giving the Activa 6G a better engine – the 110cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine will be updated to meet BS6 norms and get AGS and start-stop. The scooter might also get a CNG or electric variant from the launch.
Platform and brakes
The new 6G might finally be the Activa to get telescopic suspension up front and a mono-shock at the rear. The Activa might also get front and rear disc brakes with the front disc brake + CBS as standard.
2020 Honda Activa 6G Design
The Honda Activa 6G will be redesigned to make sure that it looks fresh and updated. We can expect an all-new LED headlight, a new apron design, a better set of colors and more changes like a new instrument cluster that gives more information like Bluetooth connectivity and turn by turn navigation. With the redesign, we can also see the Honda Activa’s proportions change and thus allow for a better and more storage. Other features will include a hazard light and a charger for your mobile phone.

This is important. Products like the 2020 Honda Activa 6G is expected to introduce new tech and features. The new connected features could include an app that helps to lock/unlock the scooter or check diagnostics and help in making the rider safer. We don’t think this will necessarily come as the price of the scooter will increase.
Price and Competiton
While the pricing should not really affect the decision of a potential Activa customer who is looking forward to buying the scooter for the Honda reliability, image and Activa brand name, the price of the scooter will increase by Rs 5000 to Rs 7ooo. It will compete with the Hero Pleasure and TVS Ju[iter.
