Honda has released a teaser image of a scooter with a tagline of ‘coming soon’. Looking at the image, it is safe to say that the Japanese two-wheeler major might bring the all-new generation of its popular 110cc scooter Activa.
The teaser image has been released on the social media handles and website of Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India, which shows a close-up silhouette of the handlebar and headlamp of the scooter. This front fascia looks like that of the current-generation Honda Activa, which indicates that it might be the next-gen version of the scooter, the Activa 7G.
However, there are two possibilities surrounding this teaser image. Firstly, Honda might be bringing the seventh-generation version of the Activa, with a few subtle tweaks to its design and a few mechanicals. The current generation of the Honda Activa, the Activa 6G, came out in the market in 2020 during the transition to BS6 emission norms. In the last decade, Honda has updated the Activa once every two years, so it is likely that the scooter teased here might be the Honda Activa 7G.
If this scooter is going to be the Honda Activa 7G, Honda might introduce a few tweaks to its design, as it has always kept the design of the scooter on the conservative side. It is due to this reason that Honda has never changed the looks of the Activa comprehensively in the last fifteen years. Apart from subtle tweaks to the front apron, side profile and tail lamp design, it is likely that the scooter might gain back the option of a part-digital instrument console and gets an option of alloy wheels in the top-spec variant.
In another possibility, Honda might also bring a limited edition variant of the 110cc Activa, just like it launched the Anniversary Edition last year. If this is the case, expect Honda to introduce a few cosmetic tweaks over the standard version. Though, the possibility of a limited edition variant is lesser compared to that of the launch of the Activa 7G.
Launched in 2001, the Activa was the first model Honda introduced in India on its own, and not with its the-then partners in India like Kinetic and Hero. The Activa proved to be a stellar debut for Honda in India, as the scooter set the sales charts on fire with its sober design and reliable mechanicals. Even two decades after its launch, the Honda Activa remains the highest-selling scooter in India, despite the arrival of newer and more feature-rich scooters in the market.
