Honda Activa 6G, the sixth generation variant of India’s highest-selling scooter is expected to launch at the upcoming Auto Expo in February 2020. The scooter will be equipped with fuel injection to bring 10% improvement in the overall mileage. Activa has successfully kept the segment racing ahead of other commuters with its class-leading reliability and cost-effective riding nature.

The 110cc engine with HET will get the fuel system upgrade to pass the upcoming strict BS6 emission norms. Honda may not be the first brand to launch a 110cc fuel-injected scooter as most rivals will try getting over the BS4 engines by adding the required technologies before the deadline. However, Honda is expected to use the Auto Expo 2020 platform to launch the Activa 6G in India.

Honda Activa scores almost 3-million sales figure for the brand in one fiscal. The price point of the scooter, along with optional accessories, help them get the most out of the commuter-friendly segment.

The launch of Activa 6G with fuel injection will raise the initial cost of ownership and it is yet to be seen how well the model performs after getting an ex-showroom price of around INR 60,000 for the 110cc model. The other side is beneficial for the brand as buyers are already avoiding other scooters in comparison to Activa and raised cost for all of them can shape the decision of buyers accordingly.

At present, the Honda Activa can be had in either 5G, 125cc or i-variant, with all three counted together for the huge sales number. The most powerful variant here is the 125cc Activa with loads of torque while highest selling among all is the 5G variant with a balance of design and equipment. The models are available with LED headlight as standard. Honda recently launched the BS6 model of Activa 125 in India with a starting ex-showroom price tag of INR 67,490.

According to recent reports, Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) is planning to launch a new product portfolio in the 300cc-500cc mid-size motorcycle segment in the upcoming 18 months. The reports also suggest that the brand will be doubling their production for the premium motorcycle segment in India, which will allow them to compete in the market with the likes of giants like Royal Enfield.

The brand recently set up an all-new premium bike division that comprises of 15 senior executives with a strong passion for premium bikes as well as knowledge on the parts. HMSI has christened the new department as “Big Wing”, which will be launching new 300cc-500cc motorcycles in the Indian market.

The brand is expected to roll out the first cruiser motorcycle under the “Big Wing” moniker in the coming 18 months. Honda is also planning on launching new Big Wing outlets in major towns of the country while the total number of outlets across India will stand at 100.

The brand has already launched some of its Big Wing outlets in major metro cities, which currently offers premium motorcycles like Honda CB300R going all the way up to the top-tier Honda Gold Wing. With the introduction of a new portfolio, the brand plans on dominating the mid-size motorcycle segment and downsize the top position holder Royal Enfield.

Commenting on the launch of new premium cruiser motorcycles and sportbikes, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Sr VP, sales and marketing at Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India stated –

“We are approaching the premium bike business with the new energy and zeal than ever before, not to be mixed with a mass-market approach. We know that pricing is going to be a key consideration for increasing the volumes and viability of our dealers. There has to be a model that is locally produced to make it viable,”

“We have been maintaining that the middleweight category has good potential in terms of volumes. The study is on to understand exactly what kind of portfolio we need. There will be a different kind of body styles in the mid-size space that will be introduced to cater to a larger audience”.

As per the reports, Honda has already tuned out a portfolio of more than a dozen motorcycles that will be sold via Big Wing outlets. One can expect the brand to roll out several new 300cc to 500cc motorcycles in the Indian market. All the bikes are expected to be locally assembled while some of them will be imported as CBUs.

Yamaha R15 V3 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 and the new Honda CBR150R are the closest possible rivals for 150cc premium performance segment. The R15 V3 made its official debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018 while the new CBR150R is still under the expected list of products for the Indian market. Honda has a great chance here as they could revive the CBR150R in India and bring some real competition to similarly priced bikes.

As the Yamaha R15 V3 is now available with ABS and priced at INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom), one can expect Honda to place the new model of the CBR150R ABS slightly lower for better competition. Honda has brought the quarter-litre CBR250R back and thus, the chances of CBR150R’s revival are now higher than ever.

We are not sure whether Honda CBR150R will launch in India or not. If it comes at the right time, buyers are suggested to choose one of them according to their needs. Strict speed lovers who ride once a month on track should blindly go for the Yamaha R15 V3 while those who ride for the leisurely purpose should consider the Honda CBR150R as it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in the everyday rpm range. Pricing will further decide the fate of CBR150R in India as higher displacement products are available at impressive prices.

Honda has finally dropped the drapes from the next-generation model of the Africa Twin that was being speculated and rumoured for a long time. This new launch has been floored with the name of CRF1100L, which is because of its all-new big displacement engine. The 2020 model of the Honda Africa Twin comprises of a number of fun and nimble features which is due to a large number of changes that it underwent in comparison to the last-gen CRF1000L model.

For instance, the changes that the model got are in the subframe which now has an aluminium touch and is also detachable. The frame has also been improved to make it more sturdy while the pivoted fork is now lighter in weight. The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin has been equipped with a new powerful 1084cc parallel-twin engine.

The engine is slim in design and is packed with all-new technology. With this amazing displacement bump, the new model of the Honda Africa Twin is able to generate 7% more torque and also 6% more peak power. The updated 2-cylinder engine is in accordance with the Euro 5 emission norms. The new model is capable to generate a maximum power of 102HP with a peak torque of 105Nm. Like the last-gen model, the 2020 model is also available with 2 gearbox options: manual and DCT.

In comparison to the standard model of the Africa Twin, the all-new adventure sports model has got a 25-litre fuel tank, a protective bodywork, a height-adjustable windscreen and also standard engine bash plate. The 1084cc engine has a compression ratio of 10.1:1. The 2020 Honda Africa Twin CRF1100L’s manual transmission engine is comparatively 2.5kgs lighter in comparison to the last-gen model whereas the automatic dual-clutch transmission engine is 2.2kgs lighter.

The new model of the adventure motorcycle is equipped with a 6.5-inch TFT touch-screen display which also comes with support for Apple CarPlay. The 2020 Africa Twin comprises of 43mm throttle body which controls the amount of air intake and allows it to happen smoothly.

The ECU or an electronic control unit controls a series of actuators on an internal combustion engine which helps in optimal engine performance which has also been improved on the 2020 model.

According to a recent report by MotoSaigon, Honda is all set to introduce the CBR300RR sportbike in the international markets. The motorcycle will be based on the CBR250RR which was initially unveiled in 2017 for the ASEAN markets. The reports suggest that the Japanese manufacturer will be launching their new product by the end of the year 2019.

The price tag for the CBR300RR is expected to be revealed by the brand in 2020 while one can expect Honda to price it competitively. The CBR250RR has been inspired from the Light Weight Super Sports Concept unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show while the upcoming sportbike is expected to get a similar design language along with a very powerful 300cc twin-cylinder engine.

Honda CBR300RR
Honda CBR300RR will be based on the Honda CBR250RR

The CBR300RR’s engine will be based on the 249.7cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that does duty on the Honda CBR250RR. The engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 38.7HP and a peak torque of 23.3 Nm. The CBR300RR is expected to generate around 45HP of maximum power along with 28 Nm of maximum torque.

The Honda CBR300RR will also come equipped with a throttle-by-wire system and it will allow the rider to operate the motorcycle in multiple riding modes namely Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. The upcoming sportbike is expected to feature a slipper clutch and a quick shifter in addition to getting a smart key system.

The suspension duties on the motorcycle will be handled by Showa upside-down forks at the front while the rear will feature a monoshock absorber. The motorcycle once launched will compete in the market with the likes of Yamaha YZF-R3 and the Kawasaki Ninja 400. The brand is highly unlikely to launch the Honda CBR300RR in the Indian market.

Honda has officially unveiled the all-new CBF190TR in the Chinese market. The modern-retro scrambler from the brand has been inspired by its older siblings like CB300R and CB650R. The bike has been specifically designed by Sundiro Honda, the brand’s Chinese arm to cater to the needs of millennials. With its unique styling and a promised accessible pricing, the Honda CBF190TR is expected to be a hit in China.

The premium styling of the motorcycle is accentuated by thick telescopic forks at the front while the complete LED lighting and turn signals add to its extravagant stance. The motorcycle has been equipped with a modern fully-digital instrument console that gives it a neat look while the brand has equipped the bike with dual-purpose tyres to add onto the premium bits. The bash plate on the CBF190TR justifies its off-roading capabilities.

The Honda CBF190TR has been unveiled in multiple extraordinary colour schemes, perfect for attracting the younger audience. Powering the CBF190TR is a 184cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 16 HP. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with fuel injection, catalytic converters as well as ABS that makes it suitable for European and South-East Asian markets since their emission norms align with that of China.

According to the speculations, the Honda CBF190TR is unlikely to be launched in the Indian market since it carries a risk to disturb the peacefully operating premium commuter segment by the brand. The Honda CB Hornet 160R has been able to grab the customer’s attention and the brand doesn’t intend on launching new products in the 200cc segment in India anytime soon.

Honda CB Twister was a well-known name for premium 110cc commuter fans of India. Honda discontinued the model to make way for the all-new Livo in the Indian market. If certain reports circulating in the industry are to be believed, Honda may launch the CB Twister 125 in India next year.

Honda can bring this model to take on the likes of the recently launched Bajaj Pulsar 125. Honda CB125F is expected to be renamed as Twister 125 for India as that saves a lot from R&D cost and potentially, could also share parts with other bikes around this segment.

The sportier body design of the CB Twister 125 will help buyers get away from the typical commuter-friendly face of the CB Shine series and may also attract buyers who were planning to go for a 150cc commuter motorcycle like the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon.

The Honda CB125F is a mild street bike as it comes with Livo style tank extensions but offers a better front fascia with minimal fairing and streetfighter style sharp tail end. Honda offers a basic tachometer, speedometer and fuel indicator in terms of the instrument console.

Honda CB Twister 125 is expected to be powered by a 124.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which also powers the CB Shine SP. It will get a 5-speed gearbox while the power and torque figures are expected to improve in comparison to CB Shine’s 10.16 Bhp and 10.30 Nm respectively.

The new 125cc motorcycle is expected to weigh less and thus, will perform more aggressively than other 125cc bikes of India. Honda is already leading in the 125cc segment with CB Shine, Grazia and Activa 125 bringing big sales numbers to the brand. The CB Twister 125 is expected to be priced around INR 70,000 (ex-showroom). Honda may showcase the motorcycle at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

According to the recent reports, Honda is planning to introduce a new 150cc adventure touring motorcycle that will be christened as Honda CB150M. The motorcycle will be initially launched in Thailand. The brand is also said to be working on the production versions of the CB125M and CB125X concept models, which were unveiled at EICMA in November 2018. Europe will be the first country to receive the production version of the Honda CB125M.

Taking the design inspiration from the Honda CB150R Streetster and the CB125M, the upcoming CB150M will get a commanding riding position with a wide handlebar placed higher in comparison to the brand’s regular street bikes. The production version of the motorcycle will be equipped with more road centric tyres that will be replacing the slick tyres as shown in the concept version.

Honda’s Italian R&D team will be responsible for the development of the upcoming motorcycle. Powering the CB150M will be the same engine that does duty on the CBR150R. The 149cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine is capable of churning out a maximum power of 17.1HP and a peak torque of 14.4 Nm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The suspension duties on the motorcycle will be handled by 41mm upside-down telescopic forks at the front while the rear will feature a monoshock suspension. The Honda CB150M will get petal disc brakes at either end.

The brand will be replacing the SC-Project exhaust unit as shown in the concept version with a more affordable exhaust canister in order to keep the cost under check. When launched in India, the upcoming Honda CB150M will compete in the market with the likes of Yamaha MT-15 Tracer, expected to hit the Indian roads soon.
