MUMBAI: Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has rolled out the latest television commercial (TVC) for exciting 4th Gen upgrade of Activa - India's No. 1 selling two-wheeler brand.

Developed by Dentsu One, a Dentsu Aegis Network agency, the TVC was launched with the World Television Premier of Jolly LLB 2 and has started running on air across popular channels from 14th May’17.

From its debut in 2001, Honda 2Wheelers India re-activated the automatic scooter segment with the iconic Activa on back of its two core strengths - advance technology and innovation. Activa’s biggest strength lies in its continuous evolution ahead of the time which has fortified its universal appeal that cuts across generations, geographies and genders. Over the years, Activa grew from No. 1 selling automatic scooter to overtaking all motorcycles and become No. 1 selling two-wheeler of India. In 2017, Honda 2Wheelers launched the 4th generation BS-IV and AHO compliant ‘ACTIVA 4G’ with new style and features like mobile charging port for connectivity on the go.

The ‘Nayi Generation Hai’ campaign reinforces the top of mind recall for Honda’s fourth generation Activa; both emotionally and rationally. The idea is to showcase how Activa 4G is playing an active role in the slice of life of India’s new generation.

In 16 years, Honda’s Activa brand has gained a strong trust of over 1.5 crore Indian families and counting. The iconic Activa is today the “Most Trusted & Convenient” common denominator for all Indian families – be it young college-goer or working professional, home-maker or the active senior citizens.

India’s psychographics is fast evolving and everyone in this new India is exploring something new.

Be it the trending youth, WhatsApp-ing parents or jogging grandparents. The TVC is all about how India's Nayi Generation is doing things differently and the new Activa 4G is their ride of choice.

The target audience of Honda’s Activa is not limited to a specific age group or region. It is trusted by every generation across the nation. Age or gender is no more the barrier for people to do different things or do things differently. The slice of life narrative is written with a consumer insight that people from different age brackets are now venturing into things that were traditionally considered out of bounds for them.

Honda’s ‘Nayi Generation Hai’ TVC opens with a middle-aged man on the bed, busy on his phone. He receives a WhatsApp message from his daughter to go out for snacks late in the night. The man agrees and they both ride to a neighborhood food kiosk on their Activa 4G.

Bringing life to the voice over, noted theatre artist Piyush Mishra elaborates, “Na Din Khatam hota hai, na raat. Aur sham chalti hai subah tak… Nayi Generation Hai bhai!”

The second sequence opens with a group of young women of all sizes working out... not in the gymnasium but through an energetic Zumba performance in a dance studio.

The sequence begins with the background jingle Zamaane ke yaar hai sab, masti mei sawaar hain and concludes with Piyush Mishra’s spicy voiceover saying, “Jo Mehnat ko masti banaye, wahi wise hai… are dance bhi to exercise hai!”

The group then rides out of the dance class on their Activa 4G’s and the jingle continues - Zamaane ke yaar hain, hawaon pe sawaar hain.

In the third sequence, a young professional is riding his Activa 4G and it’s his new generation mother (the pillion) who guides him to the destination by using satellite navigation maps on her mobile phone. The voice-over connects the Nayi Generation with “Manzil kahan hai… kaise pahunchna hai? No Confusion… that’s the Nayi Generation!”

The fourth sequence shows an old lady jogging towards a parked Activa 4G. Suddenly, she stops and plugs out the mobile charging cord from her grandson’s mobile and plugs it in her phone and starts dancing to the music on the spot. Surprised by her fun mood, her grandson joins in and both later leave on their Activa 4G. The peppy voice-over says Baalon ke rang par mat jao… hum battery full hain! Inke saamne to acche achon ka dibba gul hai and is completed by the happy jingle Zamaane ke yaar hain, hawaon pe sawaar hain..

The last sequence of the film takes the nayi generation theme even further. The sequence opens with the shot of an old man outside his home ready to move on an Activa 4G. His wife steps outside their home and ties a fitness band on her husband’s wrist. On being asked, “Ye kya hai?” she replies, “Nayi Generation Hai!” before both ride away to the park.

The sequences are followed by a montage, i.e. father-daughter, women performing Zumba, mother-son duo, grandmother-grandson duo and old couple seen riding Activa and enjoying their ride. The film ends with a voice over - “Aajkal India ki har generation, Nayi Generation Hai. Inhi ke liye aayi hai nayi generation wali Activa 4G” (Today every generation of India is doing something new and for them is the new generation of Activa. Activa 4G- Nayi Generation Hai)

“Activa's continuous evolution over the years in terms of technology, innovation and design ethos has made Activa relevant across generations. While retaining its core of trust and reliability, our astute communication has led Activa to gain top of consumer mindshare as well," Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President-Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.

“Time was when we used to say ye nayi peedhi hai, ye aisi hain, waisi hain, inko samajhna mushkil hai etc. but now you see that there is no such thing as a generation gap. We thought it's an opportune time to speak of this new generation that defies all age related myths,” said Titus Upputuru, National Creative Director, Dentsu One

“The traditional demographics have become a passé and age as a metric of classification means nothing. Marketing and brand building is all about having right insights that connect to right mindsets – whether the consumer is 18 or 80 years doesn’t really matter," said Abhinav Kaushik, Senior Vice President, Account Management, Dentsu One
