New Honda Activa 6G Smart variant details leaked ahead of launch
The recently leaked RTO document gave away a few details about the upcoming new Honda Activa 6G Smart variant. Going by an Instagram post of the brand, this new variant of India's highest-selling scooter is likely to be launched on 23 January, 2023.
New Activa 6G Smart variant: Anti-theft system
While the Activa 6G is currently available in a choice of two variants, namely Standard and Deluxe, as seen in the leaked document, it will soon be offered in a new Activa 6G Smart variant. Rumour has it that this Smart variant will bring new anti-theft technology to the Activa 6G.
Honda had already filed an application to patent the H-Smart anti-theft system in late 2022, which appears to be similar to its Honda Ignition Security System (HISS). Apart from the speculated anti-theft system, the upcoming Smart variant could come with several new features.

Further, the upcoming Activa 6G Smart has a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 279kg, which is lesser than 1kg than the 280 GVW of the on-sale model.
