2018 Honda Activa-i launched with new upgrades, pick one at Rs. 50,010 only
New Delhi : The ‘Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India’ (HMSI) has come up with an ungraded version of Activa-i for 2018 in ex-showroom, Delhi. Priced at Rs. 50,010, the new 2018 Honda Activa-i scooter comes with cosmetic upgrades and new colour options over the previous model and also gets a minimum price hike. The scooter joins the list of updated models in Honda's two-wheeler fleet.
In terms of upgrades, the 2018 Honda Activa-i comes with a revised instrument cluster, metallic exhaust muffler, front storage hook and new body graphics. The four-in-one ignition feature, first introduced on the Honda Grazia last year and subsequently in other Honda scooters, also makes it to the 2018 Activa-i. As part of the 2018 update, the scooter gets five new colours - Candy Jazzy Blue, Imperial Red Metallic, Lush Magneta Metallic, Orchid Purple Metallic and Mat Axis Grey Metallic.
However, no changes have been made in the engine design and specification. Power continues to come from the same 109 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine tuned to produce 8 bhp at 7000 rpm and 9 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm, while mated to a CVT unit. The scooter rides on tubeless tyres, while braking performance comes with 130 mm drum brakes at either end. The scooter also gets Combi-Braking System (CBS) as standard.
To recall, the Honda Activa-i was launched way back in 2013 as an entry-level offering in the Activa range. As of now, the scooter takes on a host of other vehicles including the Hero Pleasure, TVS Scooty Zest, Suzuki Let's and the likes. The Activa-i though, remains outshined by the Honda Activa 5G in the range, given the original model's popularity and the addition of a metal body instead of a fibre body.
So, if you are looking for a budget vehicle option, the 2018 Activa-i as a new comer might suit your pocket. Make your best buy!
