Honda To Launch 125cc Activa In September

2012 Honda Activa Road Test

The domination of Honda gear-less scooters in the market is not an unknown fact to anyone. The company’s famous model, the Activa has been a boon for city riders and has revived the auto-gear two-wheelers market since its introduction in 2000 in India. Honda’s scooter lineup features a 109cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which is performing well but the absence of Honda’s 125cc scooter has slightly faded the eminence of the company in the market. Now, to expand the company’s presence in the Y horizon, Honda is planning to launch a new 125cc Activa.

The Activa has been a potential product for customers in the Indian market and no doubt the model has earned buyers faith which will directly help the company to grow in the 125cc segment. The new Activa will be powered by an all-new 125cc, auto-transmission engine that will generate approximately 10 BHP of power. The performance will be more refined, smooth and energetic. The new Activa will feature upgrades like a front disc brake, telescopic front forks, more comfortable ergonomics, digital instrument console and a better design.

The new 125cc Honda Activa will compete with the existing rivals in the segment like theSuzuki Access, Piaggio Vespa 125 and Mahindra Rodeo. Honda’s prestige and faith of customers over the brand name will certainly help the Japanese company to establish the new product well in the market. The new 125cc engine might also be seen on the Aviator and Dio at a later stage. The new Activa 125 is expected to make its debut by September this year with a price tag of over Rs. 60,000/-.

    Activa has old-technology front suspension. Hope honda gives the new 125cc scooter a telescopic front suspension. If the give bigger 12-inch wheels it will be really good. But price over 60k is too much.

    when the booking is going to start for activa 125 cc. How many months it will take to deliver the scooter after booking. Pls mail me the details. All the Best.

    new activa 125cc apni film ka superstar

  • yogi August 13, 2013, 1:07 am

    well i like sooty but not activa because of lacking telescoping front suspension and in scooty it is very necessary for better balance on rough roads thats why i didn’t buy honda dio even i like it very much…hope may new 125cc activa will have telescoping front suspension with improved design…….

    • Faisal Khan August 13, 2013, 2:02 am

      Yogi, the Yamaha Ray is an excellent alternative to both.

      • Karthik August 23, 2013, 5:40 pm

        I confirmed the news in chennai. Bookings will be open next month for the 125cc. I don’t know if it will have telescopic suspension or alloy wheels or a new design. I saw the yamaha ray z also. It is so small, it is definitely not the scooter for a tall or stout male. Looks is excellent but the height of the front handle bar is low. I would wait if yamaha launches something big like the majesty, I don’t mind a price of 1 to 1.5 lac. I am going to book the upcoming new activa 125 next month, anyways delivery will start only after 2 months from booking. So if yamaha launches something big, I will consider.

          PLEASE SOMEONE CONFIRM ALL THIS?? it was told august,,,september went away…october is here,the festive season has begun n still no sign of new activa??HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

          • umesh October 14, 2013, 10:01 am

            PRATEEK u r correct…There has been no news of 125CC Activa till yet.. Every1 is making fake news? Pl confirm whether it is correct or incorrect from Dealer.

          • Prateek October 18, 2013, 6:03 pm

            The Official Honda Dealer does not have any idea about it but since I was soo furious,one just faked it by guessing the date in Jan or Feb 2014, I even emailed to Honda but got a totally computerized reply which just thanked me for showing interest for their products and that Honda releases limited press release in popular media houses and also local dealers publisice it in the area after which I went to the showroom and also sent them the link of Autocar India and Hindustan Times which had the articles TO WHICH THEY HAVE NOT REPLIED AT ALL!! hahaha

  • Mahendra Lonare August 20, 2013, 2:22 pm

    one of the best I moped categories, powerful, easy and comfort.

    • Manish August 25, 2013, 7:01 pm

      Activa is not a moped!! MOPED is derived from two words – MOtor & PEDal meaning having motor as well as pedals. e.g: TVS Luna

      • A.K. Roy September 12, 2013, 11:47 am

        According to the Honda Company Activa is the MOTO SCOOTER (COMBINATION OF MOTOR CYCLE AND SCOOTER). I may suggest that new 125 Honda Activa should improve its headlight, suspension and should be equipped with trip meter an digital display.

        • Faisal Khan September 13, 2013, 12:04 am

          AK Roy, the upcoming 125cc Honda scooter will have telescopic forks.

  • Suresh August 22, 2013, 9:43 am

    I am planning to buy a shooter above 125cc I am confused as i saw in websites that there are some good ones coming soon. should i wait or which one do you think is the best in current market.

  • Sarvinder farwa August 31, 2013, 12:05 pm

    Never buy Vespa. Very poor services by the company. Customers are neglected.
    I purchased LX125. It was giving 32 kM/lt. Lots of complaint No action. All in vain. Starting problem rectified after one year by the engineer from Pune.
    Stay away from beautifull looks.

  • Amjath September 14, 2013, 12:10 am

    What do you think will be its on-road price.??

  • Ashutosh September 17, 2013, 1:42 pm

    Any expected average/mileage of the said scooter(125cc), considering the ever rising prices of petrol. Who knows when will it shoot above 100 Rs a liter. :)

  • Ashutosh September 17, 2013, 2:06 pm

    Just inquired with a local dealer about its availability. And their response was like they are unaware of any such launch.
    Any guesses or inside news of when will it be available at showrooms. At least as a demo model to check it out.

    • Amjath September 18, 2013, 5:47 pm

      Thats the same case here.. I’m from kochi. Went to a honda showroom nearby to book it..but sadly they are unaware about it .
