The BS6 Honda Activa 125 is all set to be launched in India in the coming days. According to a recent report by IAB, the key specifications of the BS6-compliant scooter have been revealed ahead of its official launch. To meet the new emission norms that will be valid in India from April 1, 2020, the updated Honda Activa 125 will be subjected to a slightly reduced power output.
Powering the BS6 Honda Activa 125 will be a 124cc fuel-injected engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 8.29HP at 6500 rpm. The power output offered by the updated scooter is slightly less than the 8.63HP offered by the BS4-compliant model that is currently available across the country.
Honda has equipped the BS6 model of the Activa 125 with a lighter crankshaft as well as an offset piston that offers overall low friction.
