New Delhi: Honda is looking forward to launch the new Honda Activa Smart on January 23. The Activa Smart will be the next variant of the Activa and reportedly there have been some interesting changes in this variant of India’s best-selling scooter.
- First of all, the Honda Activa Smart weighs 1 kg less than the other Activa variants, named as the standard and the DLX. Secondly, the power of the scooter in all variants has increased, albeit by a small amount, from 7.79 hp to 7.84 hp.
- Honda is basically the new anti-theft system that is being planned to introduce in the Activa Smart. It could be a budget version of Honda’s ignition security system or H.I.S.S. which we have seen on big Honda motorcycles. It is also likely that this new anti-theft system will make its way to other Honda motorcycles like the Shine.
- As suggested by the name, the Honda Igntion Security System is the company’s immobilizer. It consists of an IC chip in the ignition key with a code that is verified by the motorcycle’s ECU every time the key is inserted into the ignition slot. The bike will only be started if the ECU recognizes the codes.
- As early as 2022, Honda filed a patent for the H-Smart anti-theft device for two-wheeled vehicles. So the Activa Smart could be the recipient of Honda’s new anti-theft system.
