Honda celebrating 20 years in India

Honda Activa completes 20 years in India

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India on Thursday celebrated the completion of 20 years of Activa scooter in India, by launching a special edition of Activa 6G 20th Anniversary Edition. Activa was first launched in India in 2001, a product that has firmly kept the company among the top list of two-wheeler makers here.

Activa has been a best-seller for the company for several years and over 2.20 crore units of the scooter have been sold in the domestic market since 2001. The major selling point of the gear-less scooter also has been that it offers a decent mileage and has a low need for maintenance while service costs are mostly in check. To celebrate reaching the key milestone of two decades, the company launched a special edition of Activa 6G 20th Anniversary Edition. The 20th Anniversary Edition of the Honda Activa 6G brings in a royal appeal and adds a premium touch with the all-new matte mature brown colour scheme with matching rear grab rails and special decals.

The 20th year anniversary logo, golden Activa logo, body-coloured rear grab-rails, new stripes on the front make the scooter stand out in the crowd while also making it easily recognizable. Other changes include black steel wheels, brown inner cover and seats and black crankcase cover. The Activa 6G is powered by a 109.51cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that produces 7.68 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 8.79 Nm @ 5,250 rpm. It is paired with a continuously variable transmission. The standard trim is priced at Rs 66,816 (ex-showroom), while the deluxe version costs Rs 68,316 (ex-showroom). The dispatch of the anniversary edition has begun on Thursday.
