The Honda Activa 5G has been launched in India with a starting price of Rs. 52,460/- (ex-showroom, Delhi). The scooter is available in two variants – Activa 5G STD and Activa 5G DLX and comes in 2 new colour schemes and added features but mechanically remains the same.
The Activa 5G looks similar to the previous Activa 4G but Honda has added a full LED headlamp (with position lamps) and a chrome garnish for the front fascia. The complete analogue console has made way for a modern analogue-cum-digital unit (available only in the DLX trim) while there is also a seat opening switch provided next to the key fob (as seen in the Grazia 125). The Japanese automaker has also replaced the plastic muffler protector with a steel unit.
The Activa 5G continues to draw power from the same BS4 compliant 110cc HET motor that produces 8 HP of power at 7500 RPM and 9 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM. The engine comes mated to a CVT automatic gearbox. Suspended via the same trailing arm suspension at the front and a single shock absorber at the rear, front telescopic forks are still sorely missed. Braking duties are handled by 130 mm drum units both at the front and rear with CBS (Combi-Brake System). The scooter is shod with 10-inch wheels wrapped in 90 section tyres both at the front and rear.
The Activa 5G is available in a choice of 8 colours including 2 new colours – Dazzle Yellow Metallic and Pearl Spartan Red.
