Honda activa 125 - style meets substance

2 weeks ago by Yedu Krishnan1 view

The honda activa 125 is honda's premier offerring in the 125cc segment in india. A wonderful scooter with great looks, styling and loaded with features, it is sure to attract anyone's attention. My search for a trendy yet reliable 125 cc scooter began in late 2016 but i could finalize my choice only in 2017 february when i finally decided that the activa 125 is the right choice for me. Intent on purchasing, i visited the nearest honda dealership in thrissur. The salesmen at the dealership were very polite and explained to me clearly each and every feature of the activa 125 and allowed me to take a test drive as well. Upon which i was greatly satisfied and immediately decided to purchase the disk brake variant. The buying experience was excellent, honda dealerships have great offers and i paid the whole amount and purchased the scooter right away. The scooter is absolutely an eye catcher with its front chrome grill, alloy wheels and great colours. The riding experience is butter smooth with great and steady acceleration, braking is spot on with the disk brakes and the combi brake system, telescopic suspension ensures that it can handle any road any day. The ride height is perfect for most and seats are comfortable, the seats are long and wide and ensure that the pillion rider is also comfortable. The underseat storage is sufficent, the footboard is also wide enough to carry any essential groceries or other items. The scooter has a mileage of around 45 km per litre on average, considering the traffic in the city, i consider it great.With regards to servicing, the services are to be done at 750 km or one month from purchase whichever is earlier and thereafter at every 3000 km interval or every 3 months. The first three services are free (no labour charges). The service centre staff are very professional and offer excellent service. Overall, the honda activa 125 is a great scooter for those who are looking for a premium, feature packed scooter for daily commute. Although competitors do offer more powerful alternatives, the scooter ticks all the right boxes for most consumers.Pros:1. Smooth riding.2. Spacious and comfortable seating.3. Premium look and feel.4. Wide service network.Cons:1. Not as powerful as other 125 cc scooters.2. Ride quality with pillion is average.

    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.

    My dad bought this new honda activa 125 on 12th october 2016 with the price of 68000. This is one of the best vehicles for parents and women’s and nowadays gents also using this bike, it became like a trend and fashion. I am sure activa is one of the best bikes in the market. This will compete with the suzuki access, mahindra gusto, and other brands, compare to price and compatibility and easy usage and mileage.
