Honda Motorcycles India launches the new “Improved” Honda Activa
India’s leading two-wheeler manufacturer Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) on Friday launched the new version of its gearless scooter Activa. The new upgraded Honda Activa boasts of an improved mileage among other features.
“Though under test conditions we have got a mileage of 64 km a litre, it will give 55 km a litre to customers. We hope to sell 5.50 lakh new Activa in 2009-10,” said HMSI Head (Sales and Marketing) N. K. Rattan at the launch ceremony here.
The new Honda Activa is fitted with an 110-cc engine instead of the earlier 102-cc, the new Honda Activa comes with a 15 percent increased mileage and a technology that enables braking over shorter distances, the company said in a statement.
The New Honda Activa would be available at the price of Rs.39,800 in New Delhi, Rs.41,300 in Pune, Rs.41,340 in Bangalore and Rs.41,320 in Kolkata. All prices are ex-showroom.

‘We will launch new Activa by April 15 all over India,’ said head of sales and marketing N.K. Rattan.
