Ever wondered what would happen if the Activa was put on a strict diet and two months of rigorous fitness regime? The result would be the Activa-i – a scooter that’s slimmer than the Activa and with a lean physique.

Targeted mainly towards the youth and first-time buyers, the Activa-i (trying to sound cool like an iPhone) will be Honda’s entry-level scooter, sitting below the Dio in Honda’s product hierarchy. Based on the bigger Activa, the Activa-i differs in terms of styling. It gets a slimmer front apron with integrated front indicators, and when viewed from the profile it looks like one of the e-bikes available in the market. The rear end styling is all new and it also sports a wheel hugger.

There are no prizes for guessing what engine powers the Activa-i. Like the rest of the Honda scooters, the Activa-i too is powered by the same 4-stroke, 109cc HTE engine that develops an identical 8bhp and 8.74Nm. This light-weight personal compact scooter gets features like Combi-braking system, tubeless tyres, maintenance free battery and 18-litres of underseat storage space.

Priced at Rs 44,200 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Activa-i comes with a claimed fuel economy of 60kpl.
