Honda Activa 4G – Everything you need to know!
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India Ltd. is currently the country’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer. The Japanese bike maker has managed to surpass sales of its previous partner Hero MotoCorp. And a major credit for Honda’s success in the Indian two-wheeler market goes to the Activa gearless scooter. Thanks to its widespread appeal, the Activa is currently the most sold two-wheeler in India, with around 2.5 lakh units sold every month. In fact, Honda recently announced that it has sold a whopping 1.5 crore units of the Activa since its launch.
With the BS-IV norms in place, Honda also updated the Activa for the 2017 model year. Thus came in the Honda Activa 4G, a successor to the highly popular and widely successful Activa 3G. Major changes made to the 2017 model included a new catalytic converter in the end can of the exhaust, which made the scooter compliant with BS-IV emission norms. Moreover, the headlamps now come with an Auto Headlamp On (AHO) feature. This means that the rider doesn’t need to switch on / off the headlamp. As a result, Honda hasn’t even provided a headlamp button on the handlebars.
All other features of the Activa 4G are similar to that of its predecessor. The design too is almost identical. As a result, the 2017 update can be treated as just a mid-life facelift of sorts, and not a generation update.
