New Technology

The new Honda BS-VI Activa 6G comes with a host of new features offering latest technology with additional value to modern Indian customer. Living upto the trust shown by millions of customers in brand Honda and its innovations, the all new BS-VI Activa 6G is developed with as many as 26 patent applications.

At the heart of BS-VI Activa 6G ticks Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 110cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) NEW.

New BS-VI Activa 6G brings future technology to the present, bringing India at par with the global standards   – the Sophisticated, Precise & Sensitive Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) NEW. A performance accelerator to the HET engine, Honda Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology optimizes energy output by maximizing efficient combustion and minimizing friction with a silent start & a smooth eco-friendly engine.

Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) is an integration of the following:

  1. Unique Honda ACG Starter NEW: It starts the engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate current and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus, there are no gear meshing noises.

    Two mechanical features lead to engine start with less effort – the first being efficient utilisation of decompression with slightly opened exhaust valves (at the beginning of compression stroke) followed by the Swing Back NEW 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 Start Solenoid NEW, acting as an automatic choke system ensures rich air fuel mixture and provides the convenience of one time start at any point of time.

  1. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) NEW: It injects the right amount of fuel in cylinder based on specific engine data and constant feedback from the 5 intelligent sensors. It results in smooth and linear power output throughout.
  1. Tumble Flow NEW: Honda developed the world’s first tumble flow technology through integrated die-casting process. The enhanced Smart Tumble Technology (eSTT) produces tumble flow by optimizing inlet port shape and using reverse flow phenomenon, without adding additional components leading to combustion improvisation.
  1. Friction Reduction: Offset Cylinder, compact weight crankshaft & optimized piston reduces overall engine friction. Optimized weight results in improved fuel efficiency.
  1. Mileage Up: The mileage of the new BS-VI Activa 6G is up by 10% with a completely new HET engine powered by globally acclaimed eSP technology.

More Comfort & convenience

Telescopic Suspension NEW: New telescopic suspension with increased ground clearance (+18mm) maintaining same seat height enhances rider confidence and ensures smoother ride over rough roads.

New meter design comes with eco speed range to help achieve the best fuel efficiency and On-Board Diagnostic feature of Malfunction light NEW which automatically detects any malfunction in the engine with the help of sensors.

Engine Start/Stop Switch NEW: The two-way functioning switch can be used to start the engine when pressed downwards and acts as an engine kill switch when pressed upward.

It also comes equipped with a unique Integrated Dual Function Switch NEW for accessing the 18L under seat storage space & operating external fuel lid NEW offering maximum convenience to the rider. Passing Switch NEW provides the convenience of controlling high beam/low beam & passing signal from one single switch.

The increased floor space (+23mm) gives the ease of riding comfortably along with increased luggage carrying capacity.  With constant illumination of DC LED headlamp NEW (in Deluxe variant) makes riding over rough roads & low speeds during night more convenient.

Long Lasting Reliability

All around full metal body fulfills the promise of a reliable ride. Making every ride on new BS-VI Activa 6G comfortable and convenient, is the Combi-Brake System (CBS) with equalizer and 3-step adjustable rear suspension NEW. The bigger 12-inch Front Wheel NEW and improved Wheel Base (+22mm) inspires rider confidence and leads to better ride quality.

As another industry first, Honda will also be offering a special 6-year warranty package NEW (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty) on BS-VI Activa 6G.

Amazing Technology

Honda’s latest technology and a host of new features make Shine BSVI ready for the next era of transformation.

At the heart of Shine BSVI ticks Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 125cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP).

All new Shine BSVI brings future technology to the present, bringing India at par with the global standards – the Sophisticated, Precise & Sensitive Enhanced Smart Power (eSP).

Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) is an integration of the following:

  1. Unique Honda ACG Starter NEW sparks #AQuietRevolution on Indian roads as it starts engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate current and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus, there are no gear meshing noises.

Two mechanical features lead to engine start with less effort – the first being efficient utilization of decompression with slightly opened exhaust valves (at the beginning of compression stroke) and Swing Back NEW 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.

  1. Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI): The system uses sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture which aids consistent power output, high fuel efficiency & less emissions.

The Start Solenoid NEW, acting as an automatic choke system ensures rich air fuel mixture and provides the convenience of one time start at any point of time.

  1. Friction Reduction: The offset cylinder and use of roller rocker arm with needle bearing further reduces the frictional loss which not only helps in smooth and better power output, but also improves fuel efficiency. The piston cooling jet improves cooling efficiency & maintains optimum engine temperature.
  1. Mileage-up: The all new Shine BSVI is 14% more fuel efficient due to a completely new 125cc HET engine powered by globally acclaimed eSP technology.

HET tubeless tyre (Low Rolling Resistance tyre): Shine BSVI comes fitted with rear HET Tyre (Low Rolling Resistance tyre). Developed with a new tyre compound technology, it reduces energy loss while maintaining optimum grip.

Amazing Comfort & Convenience

5-Speed Transmission NEW: Shine BSVI now comes with a 5 speed transmission which gives a smoother and efficient ride.

DC headlamp NEW provides constant illumination without fluctuation which makes riding over rough roads & low speeds during night more convenient.

Engine Start/Stop Switch NEW: The two-way functioning switch can be used to start the engine when pressed downwards and acts as an engine kill switch when pressed upward.

Integrated Headlamp beam & passing switch NEW: It provides the convenience of controlling high beam/low beam & passing signal from one single switch.

The 5 step adjustable rear suspension can be adjusted as per road conditions for a smoother ride. It also comes with seal chain which needs less frequent adjustments and low maintenance. Making every ride on next generation Shine BSVI comfortable and convenient, is the Combi-Brake System (CBS) with equalizer.

Increased ground clearance (+5mm) inspires rider confidence and comfort. Longer wheelbase (+19mm) improves overall stability and balance. A longer seat (+27mm) with a smooth integration with the fuel tank provides ample space for comfortable long distance travel.

Amazing Style & Value

The Shine BSVI is conceptualized to make rider feel ‘Special’ and sophisticated.  Front visor with chrome garnish, chrome stroke on side covers, magnificent graphics and attractive chrome muffler cover enhance bold premium looks.  New meter design, smart tail lamp and black alloys add a class of distinctiveness which leaves a lasting impression.

As another industry first, Honda is also offering a special 6-year warranty package NEW (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty) on Shine BSVI.

Shine BSVI will be available in two variants (Drum & Disc) and will be offered in 4 colors – Black, Geny Grey Metallic, Rebel Red Metallic & Athletic Blue Metallic.

The all new Shine BSVI is priced attractively starting from Rs. 67,857 (price ex-showroom, Delhi).
