Responsibility on wheels...

2 years ago by Tapas Sharma274 views

It is a great scooter for all. Irrespective of age anyone can ride it. Its comfortable seat and smooth ride is suitable for everyone. There are less chances of accidents in it. I bought it about 6 year ago and i am glad i did it. I never felt that my choice was wrong. I don't feel activa has any short comes. One can enjoy riding smoothly through this scooter. Fantastic looks for male or female both,service & maintenance is very low cost & average is good for city,scooter have enough space to carry our belongings.This is a great scooter to buy. It is not too pricey and offers very good liability.

    Bought this scooter in the year 2012. Driven it for more than 65,000 kms. I am in the process of getting a new scooter (inclined towards suzuki access 125). I'm not gonna brief about the looks, since it is very subjective.1. Powertrain - one thing about honda is their engine reliability and you do not have to worry about any niggles as far as powertrain is concerned. I am getting an average of 35-40 kmpl - mix of city & highway. It won't make you crazy whilst twisting the throttle. It does its job of commuting from point a to point b.2. Metal body - no squeak/rattling noise from the metal body. Yes there were minor scratches, dents whilst parking in the malls, railway stations but it had endured all these without much fuss.3. Suspension & drivability - suspension is a big let down. Comfort on both single person commute & pillion commuting will not last more than15 kms. Every time you hit a pothole / speedbump, you have to decelerate considerably, then twist the throttle to make up the lost ground. Puny front shock absorbers need to be changed to maintain whatsoever comfort is provided by the vehicle. Pillion comfort too is not that appreciable to say the least.4. Wheels & tires - currently nearing the end of 3rd set on rear and 2nd set on front. Michelin has been the standout performer of the different sets tried out. Other tire sets tried - mrf (oe fitted) & tvs. Never tried ceat, since many colleagues of mine reported lack of grip5. Servicing and maintenance - honda service centers are pathetic. Once my 4 free services were done, i had the scooter serviced by my neighborhood mechanic. Maintenance costs on an average will not be more than inr 800/- i had incurred a maximum of inr 2500 during 50,000 km service in which v-belt & few other parts got changed. Maintenance is usually hassle-free. Do change your scooter engine oil @ every 2500km and air filter @ 5000kmThough this scooter served me well, without making me stranded on any roads in all these years, i believe honda for the steep price point they demand for their scooters (bs6 versions) begin to infuse more practical & performance oriented commuter products in the years to come. For this very reason, i'm not wiling to go for another honda product as my next choice.. People in chennai, are looking for options other than activa. You can find other manufacturer scooters donning the roads which is not the case 5 years back. Yet, if you are looking for your first scooter, you can opt for honda purely for its reliability and fuss-free experience.

I have got it serviced at every 3000 kms there are no internal issue.Only front side have some sound nothing else.

    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 honda activa in august 2015. At the time of purchase there was confusion between activa and aviator, as they were of nearly same price range. One pros for aviator was its masculine appearance but activa was more reliable as it was more tested and recommended by the friends. So i bought it and i am happy with my decision.Being a approx. 100cc engine it has good mileage(35km/l in city) among its competitors. Till the date it has never demanded any extra money for its machinery. A regular service at every 6 months is enough for it.Yes i can say it could have more exciting and sporty looks which will attract more teens but remember it is more of a everyone's scooter...From a teen teen to retired...From a professional to a house wife.Initially for there was free service provided at service centre which was quite satisfactory as scooter doesn't demanded anything.Pros...Great pick up and speed for city. Everyone's favourite. Parts available easily.Cons... Small tyres not fit for villages and damaged roads. Shockers not best in range. Fuel filling cap could be outside instead of below seat.

    Excellent for local usage rides like going to super market, drop and pickup kids from school. Carrying small things with your own. Kids can stand in the front to have a clear view while ride. All age and gender can drive. Comfortable for short distance ride with family. Kick start is quite hard. Water won't spill on legs in rainy season.
