All New Activa 6G BS-VI
March 2, 2020
Gurugram, March 2, 2020: Celebrating new year 2020 with the ‘Power of 6’, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has started the 360-degree campaign of 6th generation of India’s first choice of mobility on two wheels – All New Activa 6G BS-VI.
In its 19 years’ journey Activa scooterized India like never before; and raised the bar with its many new innovations, technology & advanced features. The latest 6th generation avatar – Activa 6G BS-VI changes the game of mobility and unleashes #AQuietRevolution.
The campaign conceptualized by Dentsu One, a Dentsu Aegis Network division aims to further strengthen the leadership position of Activa using the common thread of 6. For the cricket loving India – 6 signifies the best possible result and holds the power to change the game. When it comes to two-wheelers, Activa is India’s most loved too. The campaign synergizes the 6 key benefits of 6th generation Activa 6G with 6 sixers of cricket. Thereby, ensuring total recall to the Activa 6G – ‘6 Changes the Game.’
Speaking on the campaign, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Ever since its inception, Activa has changed the way India rides. Our advanced technologies like eSP, many first-in-segment features including ACG starter motor and PGM-FI technology provide a perfect mix of power to the legend. A significant increase in mileage along with Honda’s 6-year warranty package (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty) ensure additional value for our customers. Like cricket, Activa too has a loyal fan following of more than 23 million Indians. Combining the two classic nation’s favourites; Cricket and Activa, the campaign symbolises the spirit of common love and Joy across the masses.”
Mr. Titus Upputuru, National Creative Director, Dentsu One said, “Sometimes, the story lies in the branding itself. Activa was coming with its 6th generation and it was called 6G. We thought this time Activa is hitting a 6. Cricket is known for its commentary so we used the narration to sound like real commentary from a cricket match. We executed a simple visual hook of a 6 to aid high recall. Casting Billy Bowden as a surprise element was the icing on the cake as he is known for his signature 6 signal.”
“Activa has not only been changing the category dynamics with its every new generation since its first launch in 2001 but also building a strong and inseparable emotional bond with India. With the launch of new Activa 6G, equipped with segment-first features, Activa has once again upped the benchmark. India loves cricket as much as they love Activa 6G and this forms the basis of our product story that seamlessly connects 6th generation Activa to the game of cricket.”, added Mr. Abhinav Kaushik, Executive Vice President, Account Management, Dentsu One
About the film: ‘Power of 6’
Activa has been the torch bearer of India’s scooter industry since its launch in 2001. In its 2 decades’ journey, Activa has become the undisputed first choice of India.
Powered by as many as 26 patent applications, the all new BS-VI Activa 6G celebrates the ‘Power of 6’ and seeks to further strengthen Activa’s leadership position.
The TVC depicts the 6 new blockbuster benefits of 6th generation of Activa. Honda’s trusted 110cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine brings future technology to the present and results in 10% increased mileage. The sophisticated and precise Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology with unique Honda ACG starter for a Silent Start every time. Adding more new value to this are the many new incredible features. The new telescopic suspension with increased ground clearance ensures smoother rider over rough roads. Moreover, the new engine start/stop switch, new external fuel lid easily accessible by the integrated dual function switch and bigger 12-inch front wheel make the Activa 6G – a true game changer.
The 6 new technologies in Activa 6G and its new advanced features are highlighted throughout the TVC supported by commentary with cricket terminologies and flavour.
The film opens with a rider removing the covers off his brand new Activa, just like the covers are removed from the pitch before a game of cricket.
The TVC also shows the universal love and trust of Indian customers on Activa. The Activa 6G impresses individuals pan-India with the newly added features who show their appreciation to this by raising their hands to make a six gesture.
The film ends with the world-famous cricket umpire, Billy Bowden who is equally impressed. Billy makes his signature six gesture when he sees the product and the voice-over concludes, Activa 6G – 6 Changes the Game!
