The company has not given more information about this scooter. It is said that it will be given some new features along with the anti-theft system. It will compete with existing scooters on the market such as the TVS Jupiter and Hero Maestro. The new Activa will be lighter than the company’s existing scooter. Its weight can be reduced by about one kilogram from the DLX variant of the Activa. The new graphics and color options can be found in the Activa H-Smart. Its powertrain has also been improved. The same 110cc single-cylinder powertrain from the Activa could make 7.80bhp instead of 7.68bhp.
The H-Smart technology present in this scooter will include an anti-theft system. The company already offers the Honda Ignition Security System on the premium versions of its scooters. This feature can be given for the first time in the new Activa. It is likely that it will also be included in other two-wheelers of the company.

The increase in sales of electric two-wheelers in recent months has also had an impact on the market. The sale of electric scooters from Ola Electric, which is included within the large companies of electric two-wheeled vehicles, is increasing by leaps and bounds. The company has sold around 25,000 electric scooters in December. Ola Electric opened 100 experience centers last year. The company is preparing to double the number of these experience centers this month. This will make it easier to buy electric scooters from the company.
