What features will the new Honda Activa 125 Smart Key variant get?
This new variant of the Honda Activa 125 will come with a key fob that will allow keyless access to the scooter. The smart key can be used to lock/unlock the vehicle, access the under-seat storage, and open the fuel lid. Further, this key fob can also be used to locate the vehicle. This can be done by clicking the answer-back button on the smart key, which will make all four blinkers will blink twice, thus making it easier to locate the scooter. Then, the updated instrument cluster will show additional data such as real-time fuel economy, average fuel economy, and distance-to-empty meter. Meanwhile, this variant will retain features such as an LED headlight, combined braking system, and side-stand engine cut-off function from the previous version.
