Here are the most capable Honda motorcycles you can buy in India right now
Honda 2-Wheelers has built up a reputation in India as makers of highly reliable two-wheelers with fantastic fit and finish and quality levels. The company caters to almost all segments from scooters to large capacity motorcycles. Here are 5 of our favourite Honda two-wheelers.
The sixth-generation Activa continues to look similar to the previous Activa 5G, the scooter gets a revised tail section that now accommodates an external fuel filler cap. Underneath the skin is an all-new BS6 motor that now features fuel-injection and an ACG starter for extremely silent starts. Finally, Honda has equipped the Activa 6G with telescopic forks and with it, a larger 12-inch front wheel to get over obstacles. Know more details about the Activa 6G here.
The Dio, a favourite among college goers, has got a major update in its BS6 transition. It retains the familiar Dio lines but the updated bodywork now has room for an external fuel-filler cap. It continues to use an LED headlamp but the revised digital instrument console now shows real time and average fuel efficiency. It shares its fuel-injected BS6 motor with the Honda Activa 6G and like it, gets an ACG starter motor. Even the underpinnings get an upgrade in the form of a new telescopic fork and larger 12-inch wheel. Know more details about the Honda Dio BS6 here.
While the Shine BS6 looks similar to the BS4 CB Shine, it gets a host of mechanical and powertrain updates. For starters, the motor is new and features fuel injection. It now delivers 0.4PS and 0.5Nm more than the BS4 CB Shine. Honda also claims the Shine offers 14 percent more mileage than before. Like the Activa 6G, the Shine BS6 gets an ACG starter motor. Another major update is the introduction of a 5-speed gearbox. Besides the motor, the Shine BS6 gets a longer seat, longer wheelbase and better ground clearance. Know more about the Shine BS6 here.
The Honda SP 125 replaces the CB Shine SP. This new motorcycle gets a sportier bodywork and packs in features such as LED headlamp, a digital instrument cluster and an engine kill switch. It shares its BS6-compliant fuel-injected powertrain with the Shine BS6 but comes with a different state of tune. Compared to the BS4 Shine SP, the SP 125 has a longer wheelbase and weighs 5kg less. Know more about the SP 125 here.
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 has been given a new lease of life in the form of the Unicorn BS6. While the new motorcycle looks identical to its BS4 predecessor, it gets a new 160cc fuel-injected motor that delivers 1.2Nm more torque. Besides the new motor, the Unicorn BS6 gets a longer seat and better ground clearance. We love the unicorn for its no-nonsense approach to premium commuting. Know more about the new Unicorn BS6 here.
