Honda has just released a brand new TVC of the recently launched Activa 5G automatic scooter. The TVC stars popular Bollywood actors Boman Irani and Taapsee Pannu who play a father-daughter duo in it. Honda has been pretty conscious about rider safety in its new ads, and has made sure that both actors wear crash helmets in the ad. Good show, Honda. The ad goes on to show the various new features that the Activa 5G gets.
The Activa 5G is the latest generation model of the hugely popular automatic scooter. It features a 110cc four stroke engine paired to a CVT automatic gearbox. The engine produces 8 Bhp of peak power and 9 Nm of peak torque. A peppy performer with more than adequate performance for everyday use, the engine is tuned mainly for fuel efficiency, and Activas typically deliver between 40-50 Kmpl of real time fuel efficiency.
The Activa 5G scooter also gets a minor facelift that makes it look fresher. There are all-new LED headlamps that have integrated daytime running lamps. There’s a chrome garnish on the front as well. Other new features include a new digital-analogue hybrid console that also has a service due indicator. The console features an ECO mode that helps the rider modulate the throttle in such a way that fuel efficiency is increased.
The Activa 5G also gets a new seat lock mechanism to make opening the seat easier to access the under-seat storage. The scooter is priced at Rs. 52,460 for the Standard version while the Deluxe variant with Combi-Brake System is priced at Rs. 54,325, both prices ex-showroom Delhi figures. A no-nonsense scooter aimed at a wide range of buyers, the Activa 5G is already a hot seller. Competition to the scooter comes from the TVS Jupiter and Hero Maestro, which while being capable products, are distant rivals in sales numbers.
