Honda has been calling the Activa the reigning ‘King of Scooters’ since the last 15 years and they aren’t exaggerating. Since its launch in 2000, the scooter has been the top-selling scooter in India.
The Honda Activa 3G, or the third generation, is the latest iteration of the popular unisex automatic scooter. And though the Activa 3G isn’t radically different from the previous model, it does get minor cosmetic updates and six new paint schemes to choose from.
In terms of design, the Activa 3G continues with the conservative styling of its predecessors. The Activa 3G gets a new set of 3D badges and new colour schemes, which lend it a premium look. The tail lamp assembly has also been redesigned along the lines of the bigger Activa 125 scooter, though the instrument cluster and a majority of other components have been carried over from the previous model. The metallic paint has also seen a huge improvement in terms of quality.
The Activa 3G is powered by the tried and tested 110cc Honda Eco Technology (HET) engine which delivers 8bhp and 8.8Nm of torque through a CVT transmission. It rides on hydraulic spring loaded suspension and 130mm drum brakes on both the ends.
The Honda Activa 3G is available in six colours - black, red, blue, grey, white and brown paint schemes. It rivals the other 110cc scooters like the TVS Jupiter, Hero Maestro Edge, Mahindra Gusto and the Yamaha Fascino.
