Honda have updated their Activa 125 this year and it is basically aimed at making life easier for customers who buy it.
The scooter now comes with LED headlamps along with position lamp, a digital analogue metre now with an eco-speed indicator for the fuel-conscious, and you also get a seat-open button for when convenience rather than convention is the call of the day. Another new feature introduced in the Activa 125 is a three-step adjustable suspension.
The Activa still retains a range of features like telescopic front suspension, optional front disc brake, 12-inch front wheel and a mobile charging socket under the seat. The engine remains the same too, which is a 124.9-cc HET engine making 8.5 PS and 10.5 Nm of torque. This engine has the distinction of being the first Bharat Stage-IV compliant one in this segment.
Speaking on the availability of 2018 edition Activa 125, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd said, “Honda is the driving force in India’s scooterization and has now extended its LED promise to the Activa 125. Upping the premium style with additional features, the 2018 Activa 125 with trust of over a million customers, will further strengthen Honda’s leadership in automatic scooters.”
There are six colours to choose from – red, blue, white, black, grey and silver – however, their official names are a bit more flashy. The scooter, a favourite amongst many, is available at a price of Rs 64,007 for the disc brake variant, there are two variants without a front disc brake where the only difference is the addition of alloy wheels. Prices are Rs 61,558 with alloy wheels, and Rs 59,621 without.
