With the commitment towards a greener future and taking #AQuietRevolution forward, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) launched the next generation 125cc motorcycle, the all new advanced & stylish SP 125 BSVI. The bike’s price starts from Rs 72,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Launching the new motorcycle, Minoru Kato, President, CEO & Managing Director, HMSI, said, “We are overwhelmed with the love India has given to country’s first BSVI 2Wheeler – Activa 125 BSVI. Our core belief is to create products for our customers that enhance the quality of their daily life and re-inforce trust and confidence in brand Honda. Taking forward this journey of #AQuietRevolution, today we are introducing yet another radical product. The SP 125 BSVI would raise the bar for technology, style & performance in the 125cc motorcycle segment.”.
Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, HMSI, said, “With Honda’s superior technology and many 1st in segment features – SP 125 BSVI provides the best riding performance with 16% more fuel efficiency. Be ready to experience the ‘Power of Silence’ with the all new sporty, spectacular & spontaneous – SP 125 BSVI.”
At the heart of SP 125 ticks Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s trusted 125cc PGM-FI HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine, boosted by Enhanced Smart Power (eSP). It optimizes performance by reducing friction, enables silent start and provides a smooth eco-friendly ride.
Unique Honda ACG Starter -1st in segment sparks the #AQuietRevolution on Indian roads. It starts the engine jolt free via the same AC generator used to generate current and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus, there are no gear meshing noises. The mechanical features lead to engine start without applying much force – the first being efficient utilisation of decompression with slightly opened exhaust valves (at the beginning of compression stroke) followed by the Swing Back feature which rotates the engine in a slightly opposite direction allowing the piston to take a ‘running start’, making it easier to start the engine with a small amount of power.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI): The system uses 8 onboard sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture which aids consistent power output, high fuel efficiency and less emissions.
Friction Reduction: The piston cooling jet reduces friction and maintains optimum engine temperature. The offset cylinder and use of rocker roller arm with needle bearing further reduces the frictional loss which not only helps in smooth and better power output, but also improves fuel efficiency. These technologies make the new bike 16% more fuel efficient.
Full digital meter – 1st in segment: SP 125 BSVI comes equipped with a full digital meter which keeps the rider updated with all the information on the go. The meter displays details like fuel efficiency details. ECO Indicator, Gear Position Indicator, Service Due Indicator & other information like TRIP, Clock, On-Board Diagnostic light.
It gets 3 new real time informatics like Range (displays distance one can travel with existing fuel in tank), Average fuel efficiency (fuel efficiency of particular trip) & Real-time Fuel Efficiency for an advance riding experience. The switchable ECO Indicator measures various parameters to determine economical riding condition. The glowing ECO light affirms the rider of best fuel efficiency. It also displays the current engaged gear and helps rider to get optimum performance out of the motorcycle.
SP 125 BSVI comes fitted with HET Tyre (Low Rolling Resistance tyre). Developed with a new tyre compound technology, it reduces energy loss while maintaining optimum grip.
The impressive style definition with aggressive tank design and edgy graphics make the SP 125 BSVI a complete head turner. The modern headlamp design and 5 spoke split alloy wheels add to the sporty character of the SP 125 BSVI. Broad grab rail and a distinctly designed tail lamp provides that bold and strong personality to the motorcycle. The chrome finish muffler enhances the premium appeal.
SP 125 BSVI will be available in two variants (Drum & Disc) and 4 colors (Striking Green, Mat Axis Grey Metallic, Imperial Red Metallic, Pearl Siren Blue).
