all new Activa 125 BSVI is developed with as much as 26 new patent
applications. At the heart of Activa 125 is the Bharat Stage VI compliant new
125cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine boosted by Honda Enhanced Smart
Power (eSP) NEW.
A performance accelerator to the HET engine, Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology optimises energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimising friction with a silent start and a smooth eco-friendly engine.
Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP)is an integration of several technologies and components. The unique Honda ACG Starter sparks #AQuietRevolution on Indian roads. It starts the engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there is no gear meshing noises.
Two new mechanical features lead to engine start without applying much force - the first being efficient utlisation of decompression with slightly opened exhaust values (at the beginning of compression stroke) followed by the Swing Back feature which rotates the engine in a slightly opposite direction which allows the piston to take a ‘running start’, making it easier to start the engine with a small amount of power.
The Honda ACG starter also ensures for comfortable frequent operation of Idling Stop System–another first for Honda models in India. The Idling Stop System automatically switches the engine off at traffic light and other brief stops, eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption and resulting in lesser emission. Engine can easily be re-started with simple twist of the throttle.
Programmed Fuel Injection(PGM-FI), the name given by Honda to a proprietary digital electronic fuel injection system for internal combustion engines, injects the right amount of fuel in cylinder based on specific engine data, available since the early 1980s.Direct fuel injection into the combustion chamber through nozzle generates more refined power delivery, better response to cold start.
The scooter gets a new digital analogue meter with Advanced Information. It gets advanced with3 new real time informatics like Range (displays distance one can travel with existing fuel in tank), Average (for overall fuel consumption display) and Real-time Fuel Efficiency for a rich riding experience. The meter displays details like Total Trip, Clock, ECO Indicator and Service Due Indicator with an On-Board Diagnostic feature of Malfunction light which alerts the rider in case of serious malfunctions in the vehicle needing immediate attention.
A Side Stand Indicator with Engine Inhibitor (a first in scooter segment) prevents engine start while the side stand is engaged enabling a convenient and carefree ride.
In addition to redesigned 18 litre under-seat storage space, the New Activa 125 BSVI gets a front glove box which provides additional storage space. It also comes equipped with a unique integrated dual function switch for unlocking the seat and opening external fuel lid.
The new Activa 125 BSVI comes with a full LED headlamp and restyled signature LED position lamps. Premium chrome finish on the front and side panels complemented by embossed 3D Activa 125 logo give the scooter a new stylish personality. The all new Activa 125 BSVI will be available for sale towards the end of 2nd quarter of 2019-20.
