2016 Honda Activa-i introduced in three new colours

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has launched the updated Activa-i in the country at Rs. 50,255 (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

The new Honda Activa-i will feature three new colours - Pearl Trance Yellow, Candy Jazzy Blue and Imperial Red. The first two colours will be offered on the standard variant, while the latter will be offered only in the Deluxe variant. There are new decals as well, while the scooter does not get a price hike.

Besides the new colours, the standard variant of new Activa-i will also be available in Pearl Amazing White, Orchid Purple Metallic and Black.
The 2016 Activa-i, which is the same as 2015 model, is powered by the 110cc HET engine (Honda Eco Technology) for fuel efficiency and generates 5.84 kW of power (8 BHP @7,500rpm) and maximum torque of 8.74Nm at 5,500 rpm. The motor is paired to a V-Matic transmission.

Yadvinder Singh Guleria, senior vice president - Sales & Marketing, HMSI said, "In line with our strategy to surprise our customers by adding freshness to our products regularly, the 2016 Activa-i is Honda's seventh new model of 2016. With this, we are confident of driving rapid scooterization of two-wheeler industry."

With the exception of the recently launched Navi, the Honda Activa-i is the smallest two-wheeler you can pick from the Japanese manufacturer and is targeted at young riders, quite opposite to bulkier full-sized Activa 3G. The Activa-i faces competition from the TVS Scooty Zest and Suzuki Let's.
