New Honda Activa 125cc Scooter at Auto Expo 2014

The Activa was a game changer for Honda, bringing it to the center stage of the Indian two wheeler segment. There was nothing to hate in the scooter, it had an all metallic body, grownup styling, a kick start option, good efficiency but most of all there was the traditional Japanese reliability.

To start with the 2014 Honda Activa gets a change of heart from the old 109 cc engine to a 124.9 cc unit making 8.6 bhp of power at 6,500 RPM and 10.12 Nm of torque at 5,500 RPM. Now the Activa also gets a much needed optional front disc brake for that more confident stopping power in the wet or in the crowded city. There is also the combi brake system seen on the CB Trigger too for bragging rights.

Tuff up tyres are now both at the front as well as the back for comfort as well as stress free riding of not getting a puncture. These tyres are not tubeless, they have a special layer of fluid between the tyre and the tube which prevent immediate deflation of the tyre in the occurrence of a puncture. Tuff up tyres slowly deflate enabling you to reach your destination rather than be stuck at the side of the road.


The 125 cc Activa gets a few exterior tweaks with new turn indicators, a blackened headlight crown and some chrome between them for being flashy. There are also new alloys a slightly stepped rear seat and a new grab rail at the rear with a slightly reworked tail lights.
