2009 Honda Activa Scooter.
New Delhi, India -- Honda India Pvt. Ltd., Honda’s 2-wheel subsidiary, unveiled the all-new Honda Activa. Carrying on a legacy, the new Activa now comes with much more modern styling, better fuel economy and plethora of new features not seen on a scooter in India previously. Currently one of the most desired scooters in the Indian marketplace, the all-new Activa will easily improve upon its already stoic reputation.
Powered by 110cc Honda engine, the New Activa increases FE by 15% over the previous generations mill. Including better FE, a Combi-front and rear braking mechanism in the Deluxe version will be the first scooter on the Indian market to include this feature. This technology enables shorter braking distance and stable braking for a new rider.
Not only does the all-new Activa look better, a new addition called “Tuff-up tube” in rear tire makes flats far less likely. Another addition is an under seat storage area.
The all-new Activa is being promoted with the phrase ‘Joy ON & ON’.
The New Honda Activa will be available in six colors: Candy Lucid Red, Pearl Sunbeam White, Wild Purple Metallic, Space Silver Metallic, Geny Grey Metallic and Black.
