Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has extended an invitation to the media for its latest innovation which will be launched on January 23, 2023. While the company has been tight-lipped about its upcoming products, leaked documents show that the manufacturer is gearing up to launch an updated version of its popular Activa scooter.
The Honda Activa 6G with H-Smart technology is expected to be equipped with the company’s anti-theft system. The Japanese two-wheeler giant already offers the Honda Ignition Safety System (HISS) in its premium products, and the H-Smart could be a cost-effective solution designed specifically for the brand’s commuter range. While the Activa is most likely to get the feature first, expect the technology to come to other Honda two-wheelers within the year.

The leaked documents also suggest that the Honda Activa H-Smart will be 1kg lighter than the DLX model. Power output has also been increased slightly from 7.68 bhp to 7.73 bhp. It’s unclear if there will be any cosmetic changes to the scooter, but do expect new graphics or color options to be introduced in the update.
The Honda Activa 6G was launched in 2020, and since then, the model has seen a massive price increase across the auto industry. The new technology will be Honda’s aim to bring more added value to its products while coping with rising prices. We expect to announce more details about the new features and their applications on January 23rd. Honda may also make an announcement about the brand’s outlook for the current calendar.
