Honda Activa 125 Launch In April, Deliveries Start In June

Honda Activa 125 India

The Honda Activa has a huge fan following in India and soon a more powerful version of this scooter will go on sale in the country. Honda will launch the Activa 125 in India in April, with deliveries commencing in June. First showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, the Activa 125 has been widely anticipated and is Honda’s first 125cc scooter in the sub-continent. While the arrival of a 125cc scooter from Honda is good news for Activa loyalists, this spells bad news for Suzuki and Mahindra, as these manufacturers have been playing in the 125cc segment for quite sometime now with little competition.

Honda could have used a new name for its 125cc scooter but going by the popularity of the Activa, the name Activa 125 was wisely chosen. This scooter has quite a resemblance to the regular Activa but gets multiple changes for differentiation. The Honda Activa 125 is propelled by a 125cc, single-cylinder powerplant which generates 8.6 BHP and 10.12 Nm. Honda’s combi-braking system is offered as well with a 190 mm front disc being an option. The Activa finally gets telescopic forks at the front which should also make it to the 110cc version in the near future. The front tyre is 90/90/12 while the rear one is 90/90/10.

The Honda Activa 125 gets alloy wheels and a new instrument cluster with a digital display. This metal bodied scooter is sure to please the power hungry but given Hero MotoCorp’s drive to bring performance oriented scooters, Honda should now consider an Activa 150. The Hero Zir is confirmed for an India launch next year and will use a 150cc engine, belting out 14 BHP of power and 12.7 Nm of twisting force. Now that’s a scooter which can nudge past 100 km/hr without much effort. The Honda Activa 125 will compete with the Suzuki Swish and Piaggio Vespa LX in the domestic market. The expected price of the Activa 125 is Rs. 60,000/-.

    Comeon guys, Jupiter itself is a sort of Activa copy cat ; )

  • Duane Almeida March 10, 2014, 10:21 pm

    I did not like the front….looks just avg…back looks weird…to some extent ugly…the speedometer looks gud…they should have brought in pass light….i feel tvs will soon bring a competitor with more features….and make the new activa look a little dated….moreover i feel honda was cheating us Indians by givin us outdated stuff…engine was gud…but otherwise as of now its a waste…but the name they made in the begginin…helped them go on…..hmmm….for once i hope actually they lose out and TVS rocks with some brilliant stuff

    • Faisal Khan March 11, 2014, 10:49 am

      For that TVS needs to launch a 125cc scooter.

      • Duane Almeida March 11, 2014, 8:59 pm

        tvs will launch shortly….

  • Upen March 11, 2014, 10:37 am

    Duane, you may be right when it comes to features. But TVS su**s on every other part. TVS has pathetic and way too costly service, after one year of running vehicle feels clumsy and creaking sounds from body panels.

    • Duane Almeida March 11, 2014, 9:05 pm

      Upen,i know the service s bad but about the parts etc….the present models i think r really gud…my dad owned an activa…which was gud for its engine …i had a honda dazzler…and it su***d big time…quality was almost zero for tht bike…my friend too owns t and regrets badly….but comin back to activa..if not for the engine…its not worth for the money u pay when compared to competition….
