Honda Activa H-Smart: What’s new?
While the Honda Activa H-Smart variant remains mostly unchanged when it comes to cosmetics and engine, it brings new connectivity features to Activa’s lineup. The ‘Honda Smart Key’ incorporates Smart Find, Smart Unlock, Smart Start, Smart Safe features in its system. The ‘Smart Find’ feature helps you locate your Activa by blinking all 4 winkers twice.
The ‘Smart Unlock’ feature makes it possible to lock and unlock the Activa without using a physical key. If no activity is detected within 20 seconds of enabling smart unlock, the scooter automatically gets deactivated. With ‘Smart Start’ the rider can use the Honda Smart Key to remotely start the vehicle when they are within a 2-metre range. By simply rotating the knob on the Lock Mod to the ignition position and pushing the start button, the vehicle can be started without even taking out the physical key.
The new Honda Activa H-Smart variant comes equipped with Mapped Smart ECU which acts as a security device by electronically matching (ID) between the ECU and SMART Key, therefore preventing vehicle theft. The smart key has an immobilizer system which prevents a non-registered key from starting the engine. Without a secure connection with Smart Key, Immobilizer System is not activated.
Commenting on the launch of Activa 2023, Mr Yogesh Mathur, Operating Officer, Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said, “Being the Front Runner in Technology, HMSI has always delighted customers by providing convenience and comfort in their daily lives.
