Honda managed to stick to the BS6 norms by adding the company’s trademark PGM-FI fuel injection technology. Along with this, one can find a new lambda sensor as well as a larger catalytic converter in the exhaust system. The fuel injection ensures smooth power delivery and better throttle response from the engine.
Powering the Honda Activa 125 BS6 is same 125cc engine which also did the job in the older version of the scooter. This powerplant now tuned to produce 8.2bhp instead of 8.4bhp in BS4 version. This drop in the power output was inevitable as fuelling needed to be precise and lesser fuel is introduced into the combustion chamber.

However, we do not feel that performance loss will be noticeable. The new scooter comes with next-gen technologies like an idle start-stop system and silent start. An integrated starter and generator system are employed which helps in silent engine starting as well as the lesser load on the battery.
Activa 125 BS6 will feature real-time riding information like instantaneous fuel consumption as well as average fuel economy. This will help riders to ride accordingly to extract maximum mileage from every drop of fuel. Upon launch, the Activa 125 BS6 will rival the Hero Maestro 125 FI even if the later is not yet BS6 compliant.
