About Activa 125


The main highlight of the new Honda Activa 125 is the BS6-compliant 124cc engine which produces 8.1bhp. There are no cranking noises and the engine comes to life in one touch of the electric start button. Thanks to the fuel-injection system, the new Activa 125 is smooth and vibration-free even at its top speed of around 90kmph! And for coming back to a halt, the top-spec variant employs a disc brake at the front which offers good feel and feedback. The rear drum brake, on the contrary, could do much better with more bite.


Visually, the Activa 125’s seat is huge. It also feels extremely comfortable, padded with a soft cushion that cradles the behind well and also provides enough support for the under thighs. The floorboard is spacious too. Besides the hook on the front apron, the Honda Activa 125 comes with a glovebox that is good for storing a wallet at the most.

Rear suspension setup is still soft and kicks the rider on larger bumps but the ride feels more planted than before. With a pillion on board, the Activa’s suspension feels settled.


Honda Activa 125 features an LCD below the analog speedometer that shows current fuel efficiency, mileage, and range along with a trip meter, odometer, and clock. The instrument cluster also comes with a malfunction lamp and a side stand indicator with an engine inhibitor that prevents the motor from cranking up if the stand is down.

Activa 125 also has a start-stop system which shuts down the engine if it is left idle for more than 3 seconds thus saving fuel. Twist the throttle and the system cranks up the engine immediately.

Fuel Efficiency:

In a combined run on the highway and the city, the Activa returned an average of around 50-55kmpl. Given its tank capacity of 5.3 liters, the scooter is capable of running a decent 280kms on a single full tank.


The new-gen Activa 125 handlebar grips have a grippy rubber finish. Then, there is the plastic around the instrument cluster which feels and looks premium. The switchgear is tactile and easy to operate. The LED headlamp mounted on the steering unit is sleek.

Fitness of Purpose:

Honda Activa 125 BS6 fits the bill perfectly for someone looking for a no-nonsense scooter that can comfortably accommodate a small family yet have enough room to store the groceries.

    Comfortable, smooth & reliable. Good braking, good handling. Since certain scooter parts are made of fiber, they tend to vibrate after certain time so it will improve full metal. Good suspension too. Overall happy with the scooter. Mileage is around 40 - 50kmpl with mix
