    Style

    i like the style of the bike. Analogue/digital meter cluster is very sporty with silver lining around it.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    engine is very torquey and pickup is very nice. 0 To 50 kmph can easily be achieved in under 5 sec. Even on higher speeds, the engine does not feel stressed. I have even ridden this scooter at my highest speed of 95 kmph still balance was very good and engine was happy to continue with such high speeds. But there is vibration from front portion of the scooter during initial acceleration which disallows the acceleration to kick in which is sometimes very irritating specially in stop & go traffic. (May be this is a problem with my scooter only. Even service centres have not been able to solve this issue.) Fuel economy is just satisfactory as i get around 33 kmpl in city traffic and around 38.5 Kmpl on highways (speed of around 55-60 kmph). Also there is cold-start issues specially on chilly mornings (as with most other vehicles). Mileage and vibration kept aside, this can simply be the best scooter in the 125cc segment.

    Ride quality & handling

    ride quality of the scooter is awesome. Handling is also very good but sometimes in case of emergency braking with both brakes applied, the rear end of the bike tends to skid (this is a cbs equipped scooter, so unequal braking cannot be issue) causing unbalance.

    Final words

    very good scooter if mileage is no issue.

    Areas of improvement

    mileage can be improved vastly. Showrooms claim 50-55 kmpl and bikewale claims 54 kmpl but actual mileage is nowhere near it. Front end vibration issue to be addressed. Updated version of scooter to be launched (this scooter was last updated around 5 years back)

    pros

    style, pickup.

    Cons

    mileage, vibration during initial acceleration.

    Buying experience was excellent, looks are good, performance is not bad when compared to other 125cc scooters, servicing and maintenance is expensive almost equivalent to a royal enfield 500cc costs, after your 4 free services are over, one good thing is the pickup, the main problem of the scooter is weak body, too much of vibrations, after few months you've to tightened the nuts and bolts of this scooter or else you loose the confidence to ride it because of the noises coming from the every part of the body of loose nuts and bolts. I would not recommend this scooter to anyone. It's not a safe scooter. It's not about just me, i've known loads of people facing the same problems.

  •  4The all new activa 125cc is worth of buying it 3 years ago by Sudhanshu Gupta

    Buying experience-:

    My buying experience was the best. I must tell you that their staff were so friendly about my requirement and to be honest i never expected this friendly buying and that good worth of buying. They were also suggested that i could go for loan service with full information. In a simple words" paise wasul of activa125". Thanking you honda.

    Marks-: 4.5 in out of 5

    Riding experience-:

    I enjoyed so much comfortable and thrilling first ride on my new activa125. I was amazed and loved to riding on it. A complete package for everything like shopping,moving,outing, for office etc.

    Marks-: 4 in out of 5

    Details about looks and performances-:

    There were various option for color for me but i went for the blue color with the disc because sometimes we need of immediate break so it fulfilled my purpose. But i feel a scooter with such small tires and flat sitting should have disc brakes just because it is 125 cc. Scooters are the most comfortable at the 45-60 speed range.The automatic gear is great and also the leg space to keep stuff at the front like your small groceries. The hassle of hanging in on the handle is not there. The pick up is generally good but not as good as your geared bike but you cannot challenge that because a bike is always bike and you cannot challenge your scooter to do the same, that would be just unfair. But in its league, the pick up is rather smooth and you do have that confidence level also.

    The mileage is now well just after the 1st service, it is rather good at 45-46 levels (i did the full tank theory). The finishing of the metallic and plastics are really good. They could have come up with a small space to keep your cell phone and a charging point which is really useful. The storage space under the seat is suitable for a full face helmet.

    Marks-: 4.25 in out of 5

    Servicing and maintenance-:

    Service is a bit of expensive but it was quite good in service. Quick and reliable service was provided to me. Staffs told me how i could maintain my scooter with so easy and increase the millage and performances. Good services provided to me. Thanking you honda service.

    Marks-: 4.5 in out of 5

    Pros and cons-:

    Pros-:

    Multipurpose,easy to maintain,enhanced breaking system,descent metallic design,wide wheals gives more base to body,extra space,top speed 85kmh and millage 53km, bhp 8.5, with bs-iv,much comfortable.

    Cons-:

    Service a little bit of expensive, no trip meter,no low battery indicator,oil filling outside fuel system.

    My opinion-:

    Definitely i will recommend to my friends and who will go for buying a scooter.Because i have a great experience and satisfaction about activa 125cc.

    Thanks to all of you for reading my reviews.

    Buying experience is good but when you ride it feels jerky and not comfortable it vibrates a lot very poor mileage i have filled the tank mostly full but after 10 lmao of riding it shows only two lines. I suggest you to buy activa 5g or ntorq but do not buy this. It's looks are pretty good but in old activa 125 it comes with yellow headlamps and white delight and this does not looks good on road but this issue is cleared in new activa 125.

    After 2+ years with suzuki access, it was time for replacement. Though i initially considered jupiter, bought access 125 with basic expectations. The delivery experience was not something great to write about. Honda sales people think they are doing us a favour by selling their products.

    Comfort is not something that should be expected from this scooter. Suspension is just decent, seat comfort also is just about good. Ride quality and handling is good for short commutes. Daily commute for distance more than 20kms will take a toll on your body.

    The thing i hate most about this scooter is the cold start. Be it any season starting the scooter after few hours rest is always an effort. You have to crank it for at-least 10 mins before it cranks up after a lot of retaliation. I actually noticed this issue with a lot of activa's.

    The one thing i like about activa 125 is it's styling. I prefer it to any other scooter in the market today. It seems timeless and will age pretty well.

    Refinement has always been a positive point in a honda and it is the same even for activa 125. Performance is ok, but we shouldn't expect significant difference between activa 4g and activa 125. Low end and mid range power is good. After speeds about 80kms the power tappers off and though you wack-up the throttle completely, you barely see it being translated to speed, all you feel is the scooter respond with discomfort.

    Brakes especially the drum variant are a major disappointment. Please don't get convinced withe sales person's advise of "disc variant is not suited for ladies...." i urge anyone considering activa 125 to go with disc brake variant. Drum brakes are not confident inspiring.

    Activa 125 comes with either tvs or mrf tyres. Mine came with tvs tyres which are again not confident inspiring i would suggest to upgrade them.

    It is easy to maintain activa 125. I never had to pay more than 600+ rupees for a service. Spare parts are reasonably priced. But again honda service personal feel they are doing you a favour by servicing your scooter.

    Overall, activa 125 is a refined, good looking simple scooter best suited for short sprints. Don't expect too much out of it.

    All and all.. I'm impressed by its performance,its a great bike according to speed, shape, engine power, and other great features, but the company guys must produce a kind of body parts (as my bike have some scratches and bumps on its body,definitely by my driving mistakes) to replace some parts, which can be easily available to the market.Thank you honda motors... I appreciate you and your industrial members to manufacture such a great product...
