    Honda has dropped the ‘6G’ suffix from the name of its massively successful Activa scooter. There has been no official statement as yet from the company, but with the Activa electric launching soon and an Activa 125 already on sale, the suffix really didn’t serve any purpose, as there’s enough distinction between the models already.

    Honda Activa: over the years

    The Honda Activa was first introduced in the Indian market in 2001 and this first-gen model was powered by a 102cc engine. In 2009, with the introduction of the ‘2G’ model, the company revamped the scooter and gave it the 109cc engine (which is the same capacity as the Activa sold today). 2015 saw the introduction of the ‘3G’, which came with tubeless tyres and Honda’s Eco Technology (HET) for the first time.

    The ‘4G’ model came out in 2017 when the BS4 emission norms kicked in and the 5G brought in a LED headlight. In 2020, Honda rolled out the BS6-compliant Activa ‘6G’, which came with a silent starter and an external fuel filler. In January this year, Honda introduced a new H-Smart variant to the line-up, and this came with an electronic key fob and keyless functionality.

    Currently, the Honda Activa is priced from Rs 75,347 for the Standard variant up to Rs 81,348 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the H-Smart variant.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
