    Best activa ever produced. Always liked activa but never liked the front suspension. Was waiting for the new suspension. Now i think this has everything. Yeah there will always be some or the other lack in something. Am missing the charger port and bluetooth connectivity. Hope to see the next model upgraded with all the missing things.

    It's a reliable bike as I have driven this bike from all the way Chennai to yelgiri with was a total distance of 630 km include up and down but the area in which it sucks is mileage, it gives only 30 kmpl. And about the comfort it's not that much comfortable but still okay. seats are a bit hard which will be a drawback while long drives. I do admits it's not meant for long drives but for daily commute but still we can rely on its for a long distance ride... I love it because it's my first bike and it was with me for fulfilling my dream of long drives. #MyFirstBike#LoveIt.

    In general, honda activa is a great vehicle for daily commute as easily you can observe the numbers on road, bought it an year ago with sideguard and safety gears and i recommend that strongly.. Coming to mileage and performance, it gives 50 kmpl a little less than the stated 60kmpl..About service i gave it twice and i think its necessary, not bad.. Other features as luggage carrier seat space are all best in the two wheeler spectrum specifically pros- mileage, ease of driving, storage space. Cons- heavy, not easy on beginners. You've made a good decision by considering this as your choice.. FGood ride!

    At that price activa 125 was the best option available in the market. This vehicle is good for single and double riding but, unfortunately while triple riding, riders might go through discomfort. I think if you're buying a scooty then looks is not a matter of fact, though its look and design were quite pretty. You will get first five service free of cost (you have to pay for the parts and components like brakes etc). After 5 times, you will have to spend inr 1k-1.5k per service. Style, looks, comfort and design are quite good but, the mileage could be a weak point for this. I would recommend suzuki 125 or jupiter.

    Buying experience: not so good. Was compelled to go for honda, since my previous activa broke down after 10 years and engine opening cost stood at mighty rs 5000. They instead gave an option for 5000 discount as exchange offer, which itself is ridiculous. Riding: one man riding is back breaking especially on bad road. Suspension setup is non existent for single as the riding posture and non existing weigh on back directly transfers all bumps and vibrations to your back. Riding on high speed too transfer all little bumps to our body. These are not the case for pillion at back, since there’s no upward flip from behind on bumps. Low speed power is low , mid range is fine, upper mid range is good. Can cruise at 60-70 without any issue. Can overtake sufficiently on those speeds. Speed tops out at around 80, although vibration above 75 makes going beyond unsafe and difficult. Have had very bad throttle issue recently due to jamming of petrol filter ,even on regular service. Tank capacity: poor. Self start misses a lot. This might escalate with time. Service experience: not on par. If we leave it with them they will skip most maintenance and inner cleaning steps. Just surface job for customer appeasement. Obvious economy of scale issue. That’s what happen when they have so much sale and service numbers. Setting individual target for daily service mitigates the quality and forces the labor to skip major steps except where parts needs to be changed due to there previous carelessness. Looks: fine.

    Initially bought the vehicle for spouse, however after started riding it was me who used the scooter for daily travelling. Activa is pleasure of comfort ride whether highway or city. Power, pickup and design is very effective. Vehicle is also having less maintenance cost as routine servicing is only reqd. To keep vehicle condition upto mark. As far as my experience activa is having all pro and no cons. I may also like to buy another activa in family.

    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 riding @ around 40- 70kmph. Resale value also is good. Additional features so good, like... Ideal engine off, & if side stand never start scooter its great.

    Actually i bought honda activa in 2009 when the 2nd upgraded model was introduced. Till now no problems, running on and on. I had the habit of applying front brake, led sometimes skidding. Then made habitual of applying both the breaks simultaneously and keeping front brake less bite to desirable liking to stand upright even after breaking. By then thought of why not dual breaking and bigger size tyres to effect safe braking. But thanks lot now most of the scooters and bikes too have come with dual braking. Moreover i prefer scooters than bikes just because of their storage. Whoever increases the storage and tire size will win the market.

Honda Activa 125 BS6: Road Test Review

Honda Activa 125 BS6: Road Test Review

03 December 2019
Neil Nair

While the BS6 mandate will only be implemented next year, Honda was early to the party and came with the Activa 125 BS6. Spending a couple of days with the scooter, we test it in various conditions to find out how different it is is and if the new tech makes life any easier.
