About Activa 125
The Activa 125 has finally got an upgrade to bring it a little upmarket. With the new feature set, it sits neatly in the Honda India scooter lineup between the Activa 5G and the Grazia. The Activa 125 has finally got an upgrade to bring it a little upmarket. With the new feature set, it sits neatly in the Honda India scooter lineup between the Activa 5G and the Grazia.
The new features include a part-digital display that debuted on the Activa 5G, in which only the speedometer is analog and the rest are digital. It also gets an LED headlamp, the four-in-one ignition key slot that unlocks the seat as well, and there is now the option of adding a 12V charging socket under the seat as a dealer accessory. The major change is a mechanical one – the rear suspension is now preload adjustable. The engine is the same 124cc air-cooled single-cylinder motor that generates 8.5bhp and 10.5Nm.
There are six colour schemes available, of which two are matte paints schemes. Three variants make up the Activa 125 range; the base model has steel wheels and drum brakes. The next variant has alloy wheels and drum brakes, and the top-spec variant has alloy wheels and a front disc brake. All three offer CBS linked brakes as standard.
The Activa 125’s biggest competitor is the Suzuki Access 125 – they both project themselves as 125cc family scooters.
