Looks like Honda has been on a roll as the company tallied 5.5 lakh unit sales of its total BS6-compliant lineup. This includes the Honda Activa 6G, Activa 125 BS6, Dio BS6, Shine BS6, SP 125, and the Unicorn BS6. It’s an impressive feat considering on February 26, 2020, the company crossed the 3 lakh milestone. In December, the number stood at just 60,000 with only the Activa 125 BS6 and the SP 125 in its BS6 portfolio.
Honda had already revealed that all its four factories in India have started manufacturing only BS6-compliant two-wheelers. That means, we can expect the brand to launch the rest of the BS6 versions of its popular BS4-compliant models soon. In related news, the brand recently issued a voluntary recall for the Activa 6G, Dio BS6, and Activa 125 BS6 over an issue with the rear suspension. You can find more details here.
