    Style stylish.


    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox powerful enegine and very responsive engine


    ride quality & handling very nice but in varanasi, roads are very bad so bouncy suspension is creating problem. Hoda must give more improvement in suspension specially in front wheel.


    Final words value to money but if i get average more than 48 km/l in varanasi then i will give 5 stars to activa.


    Areas of improvement suspension and mileaga.

    Pros

    smooth ride; responsive engine; superb pick up; balanced

    cons

    bouncy suspension

    It is a great scooter.The buying experience was smooth.The sales persons were polite.After a week of waiting period i got the scooter it is a 2014 model black colour het (honda eco technology) version.Riding experience was excellent at good roads but at bad roads it is not good due to the spring loaded hydraulic type suspension at the front and rear and that too coming with 10 inch tyres.If you ride in bad roads for more than 20 min you will get back and neck ache.It is a good looking scooter,it will appeal to both younger and older riders.Talking about performance,the 109cc air cooled single cylinder si engine delivers decent power.The scooter has excellent low end punch and decent mid range but lacks top end response.After 60 kmph the engine will get stressed but it will go up to 80 to 85 kmph. Mileage is also very good,i m getting 50 to 55 kmpl if i don't go beyond 60kmph. But if we ride at more than 60 kmph continuously (at nh) the mileage will go down dramatically to 30 to 35 kmpl. Service charges are very affordable.Just change the engine oil at every 2000 km and do regular checkup at every 4000 km.I have ridden it 80 km at one stretch at nh. If the road is good we will not feel tired.I have ridden total about 21k kms in 4 years and still counting.I only changed spark plug and rear tyre till date.Cons :suspension in bad roads,feels under-powered in highways.Pros: everything else. Hope this review helps.

    I bought an activa way back in September 2012. I am generally a person who waits for other people to review a new product before buying it. But at that time, there were not many options around. So I took the risk and bought this. Do I regret the decision? not at all. Th...
    I bought an activa way back in September 2012. I am generally a person who waits for other people to review a new product before buying it. But at that time, there were not many options around. So I took the risk and bought this. Do I regret the decision? not at all.
    The first thing that struck me was the refinement of this package. The accelerator is easy on your hand and the vehicle responds instantaneously to your inputs. Also the pick-up is pretty decent.
    The next thing I noticed is the lack of vibrations. You feel you are doing a forty when the speedo shows sixty. And on empty roads you can easily pull it to 75+ speeds without almost no vibrations. You can also do lean angles on this vehicle without it losing grip with the ground. More so, you feel some level of confidence doing this. The vehicle stays in line on hard braking. Also the handle does not become light at high speeds. Must have some thing to do with the 60-40 weight distribution.
    In the early days, it was pretty much noiseless also. You had to strain to hear the engine running. But after the last free servicing at the end of the first year, the service guys tuned it to deliver a little more power. Now the engine is audible though not intrusively.
    So is everything perfect in this package? well, I don't think so. Honda and other websites says that these are the best brakes in this class. However, I still feel that they are not as effective as they should be. There are vibrations at the lower speed range, though these vanish when the speed goes above 20.
    The switchgears are not very well located. You really have to reach to switch the high-low beam buttons. Also for ladies the seat is just a bit high and weight a bit heavy. Also i would have liked a city light option on this package. You can just switch on the tail light but not the head light. It would be very good for evening rides.
    Lets summarize all that I said (and some more points also):
    Pros -
    (1) refinement
    (2) stability (straight line and at angles)
    (3) absence of vibrations (at 20+ speeds)
    (4) pickup
    (5) head light is really good
    Cons -
    (1) braking
    (2) vibrations at low speeds
    (3) position of switch-gears
    (4) height and weight (for ladies)
    (5) no city light
    Other observations
    (1) mileage 45km/l even with a heavy hand on accelerator.
    Overall, i would rate this scooter with 4 stars.

    Hi, i have been riding the 1st gen honda activa for about 8 years now. The scooter has clocked about 83,000kms and still running good.

    No engine work yet. I am amazed, all i have done is the regular service and ensure you do not rev the engine unnecessarily.

    Authorised honda service will advice you to get the engine work at about 50k-60k kms , however i can assure that if the scooter has been used well, it has a lot more life in it before it can go for a overhaul.

    Even with 83000kms on the odo, the scooter pulls 2 full sized adults gracefully on steep roads too. I use the vehicle for my everyday commute roughly about 35kms/day.

    Average fuel consumption is about 34-37kms/liter.

    Good engine oil, gearbox oil, regular checks on carb, filters, spark plug and drive belts will ensure this scooter is really built to last.

    Keep in mind, this is not a race scooter, so kindly ride easy and you can go a long way.

    If anyone out there is looking to add a new scooter, i think honda activa is a great choice.

    Style ok.


    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox ok.


    Ride quality & handling ok.


    Final words ok.


    Areas of improvement clutch and turn indicators. Last year i purchased one honda activa110 cc scooter head light mount portion vibrating morning time when i start the scooter. Self start not working morning time only kick start working. 4 Times i contacted the muthoot honda dealer to solve the problem. But still now they canot solved the problem. They said for the new model clutch complaint is getting always. After start when give the accelaration this problem is facing. My opinion suzuki 125 access better than honda scooter.

    Pros

    body shape and engine

    cons

    clutch

    The product look good at one sight but once you decide to purchase this , you need to be mentally prepare yourself to face a torches,



    because you have to face the worst dealership network of the world. Yes honda bikes.



    They will ready to deliver faulty product to you. As they aware that honda management & customer care is not going to listen you.



    You cant do anything in this situation coz you already spent your hard earned money.




    Thank you, honda for making such a sucking network.

    Pros

    no

    cons

    their dealership network really pain
