The 125 cc scooter segment is booming with a number of highly competent products like the Suzuki Access 125 and TVS Ntorq. The Honda Activa 125 too competes in the same segment and is offered as a sophisticated, good looking, and refined scooter. If you are in the market to buy the Activa 125, check out our detailed first look review for more details.
The Honda Activa 125 gets an elegant and impressive design language. The sleek LED headlamps at the front complement the overall look while the addition of the chrome on the front panel gains a lot of attraction. The similar design language is carried to the side and overall, the Activa 125 remains one of the best looking scooters in its segment. Apart from this, the seat is positioned at a comfortable height while the rear design too remains subtle.

The Honda Activa 125 is powered by a 124 cc SI engine that delivers 8.18 hp while the peak torque output stands at 10.3 Nm. This engine comes mated to an automatic CVT gearbox and offers superior refinement and smoothness levels. Activa 125 now comes with a PGM-Fi (programmed fuel injection) fuel system which helps in delivering up to 13 percent more mileage. This is achieved by the use of new tumble flow technology that increases the turbulence of air-fuel mixture which results in improved combustion and better power delivery.
The ride and handling balance offered by the Aciva 125 is great. The rider and the pillion remain comfortable one the badly patched up surfaces while the highspeed stability is decent. The scooter gets telescopic suspension at the front while at the rear, it gets 3-step adjustable spring loaded hydraulic suspension while it is underpinned by underbone type frame. The scooter is agile and easy to drive at slow speeds but we would have appreciated better ride quality.
The Honda Activa 125 BS6 competes against scooters like Suzuki Access 125, Hero Pleasure Plus, Yamaha Fascino 125, etc. The scooter is priced from Rs. 68997 for the base, Drum variant.
